Doesn't connect to TV!

I have tried using the HDMI cable, and also the old analog way (Red / White and Blue connections)

When I turn playstation on it powers up but it doesn't show anything on my tv, just a blank screen, the controllers also don't "Attach" themselves to the computer when I press the PS button.

How do I hook up my surround sound system thru my stereo and tv


connecting your surround sound system is not complicated.things you may need:OLDER STEREO SURROUND SOUND:analog red, white, and yellow cable connectorsHDMIaudio fiber opticsif you bought your stuff new from electronics store,then it would be easier.all you need is HDMI cables (mostly)depending where your inputs and outputs go, you must know the rule. OUT-TO-IN. that means if you are using a cable box, dvd, bluray, playstation, or xbox. everything in these electronic devices are OUT. then connect them to the IN ports of your surround sound. at the back of your surround sound there will be connections saying IN-dvd, IN-dvr etc. connect your OUT DEVICES.
NOTE: YOU MUST KNOW WHAT ARE YOUR CONNECTIONS, LIKE DVD-IN OR DVR-IN CU'Z YOU WILL USE YOUR REMOTE TO CHOSE WHICH CONNECTIONS YOU WANT TO USE.
now from your surround sound to your tv.the same ruleout to in of your tv. You should look for HDMI port that is saying OUT. you will connect your HDMI cable from there connecting to your IN of your tv. remember which port you plugged the HDMI cable as you will switch to that particular input. it will say at the back of your tv in-1, in-2, in-3 or as much as the manufacturer want to have in there product.
connecting your speakers.you must remember the color code.if you chose red as positive, all the red wire must be positive.colour may be different but same idea. if you have sub-woofer it will be an analog cable you will only use single cable. At the back of your surround sound there's a connection saying sub-woofer out.
now selecting your inputs.turn on your tv and stereo.newer tvs and stereos are smart they can configure there system which is turned on.
anyways if you will do it manually, you must select from the remote what is the connected input. (input 1, input 2 etc.) if you found the right input, do the players (dvr, cable box, dvd, bluray, playstation, xbox etc) turn them all on and select from your stereo remote control.note all the inputs you selected.

Trying to hook up playstation 3 with either HDMI cable or RCA cable Neither one is producing anything? WHat could be the problem?


For the HDMI your TV input for that HDMI input may be skipped you should check and make sure that it is not greyed out and that you can select it. For the RCA.... You should make sure that you are hooking it up right. You either have composite cable 1 yellow video and a red and either white or black left and right audio to Yellow video and Red and white on the TV, or you have component which will be red green and blue all three will be for video and you will need 2 more rca jacks for audio. It matters where you plug the red green and blue cables as well. getting them backwards either won't work or will give you a tinted picture.

Additionally, make sure that your TV doesn't share inputs. Some TVs will have Video 1 and it will be composite RCA and HDMI and you can select which to use. if it sais HDMI one and Video one you should be fine there if both say video one or the like they are likely shared

Hope this helps!

I have a panasonic Th-42pv500a. I'm trying to connect my ps3 Via HDMI but it won't work. The ps3 works in my other tv with the same HDMI cable. And the foxtel box works in the panasonic with the same HDMI...


the playstation detects that you are changing display settings. hopefully you still have the old red yellow and white cord that we all used to use to plug in stuff to your tv . use this cord to connect your playstation to the tv, it should pop up that you want to change display settings. then after you go through that unplug and recconect the hdmi and it should run you through it again, Another option - when you plug in your ps3 to the tv , turn everything on the tv and playstation. if nothing pops up turn off your tv and playstation , literaly unplug them from the outlet for a good minute then plug everything back in and you should fix it that way. hope one of these work

Good evening, My son has been using his Playstation 3 on a TV with a resolution of 1080p. Now he is trying to use the console on a lower resolution TV. Can you tell me how he can reset his console so he...


OK if hes connecting it to a TV with a red/white/yellow cable then you need to connect it to the 1080p TV again with the hdmi cable but with the red/white/yellow cable on the same tv at the same time. Then in display settings switch it to the red/white/yellow cable setting and thats it. It should be good for the red/white/yellow cable TVs.

If its a TV with hdmi but more like 720p then just use the 1080p tv and go to settings then switch to 720p and there.

Sorry if this is confusing.

I Have just bought this reviever (Yamaha Rx-v365)and im just trying to work out how to best connect all my devises. I have Tivo, Lg DVD player with both yellow, red white cables and blue green red cable...


Hi, firstly some terminology:
yellow cable - video composite (worst quality)
white/red - stereo analog audio
blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)

You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.

If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.

For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.

For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.

How to connect satellite radio?


No you don`t need HDMI cableing, and do not use the blue, green, red, this is for video 1080i, if your Samsung doesn`t support more than one audio input ( the red and white RCA female plug audio inputs) get a multi tap or a piggy back plug, this will allow you to have 4 inputs into 2 inputs, think of it like an extention cord, one plug into an outlet yielding 3 inlets.

No play back from HDTV to threater system


Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV?
You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output.
You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV.
But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound.
But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.

I want to connect the Audio from tv to Surrounding audio system


For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer

Connecting ps3 to cinema system


There is no substitute for HDMI. However, the 'digital in' cable connection that you want to use is still digital and will sound almost exactly the same. The differences are barely noticeable to the human ear. Here is a list for you to see the pecking order of each type of connection.

Audio connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (digital)
2. Fiber optic (digital)
3. Coax - Digital (digital) <--- The one you want to use.
4. Component (analog)
5. RCA/AV (analog)

Video connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (full HD digital)
2. Component (Blue, green, red, white, red - HD analog)
3. S-Video
4. RCA/AV (Yellow, white, red)

Good luck!!

  3. HDMI -
DVD Player Connections:

  1. Composite (red, white, yellow) - comes standard.
  2. Component (red, blue, green) if you have it.
