Re: Connecting ps2 to my TV

Did you hook the yellow up to a green jack labeld Y on the back? What kind of tv do you have? Some component inputs (the ones with the green Y jack) are not compatible with the video input you have, some are.

When i turn on my ps2(slim) i cant see or hear eny on the TV way is the happing plz help me

Check your A/V cable connections. They are the Yellow (Video), White (Left audio), and Red (Right audio)wires coming from the back of your PS2 to the connectors on your TV. Be sure they are plugged in and they have a tight connection. Also, be sure they are plugged into the appropriate jacks. They jacks are usually color-coded to match the connector type. Then check to make sure the plug that connects to the back of your console is in the correct port and is snug as well. A loose connection anywhere will prevent anything from coming up, the PS2 was infamous for that.

Aside from issues with A/V, be sure your TV is on and tuned to the correct source. If your PS2 plugs into an RF switch which plugs into the coaxial (cable) port on the back of your TV, the channel should match what the RF adapter is set to before turning on the console. If the PS2 is plugged into your TV through the A/V cables (The yellow, white, and red connectors we discussed earlier), make sure your TV is set to the proper source. The source channels could either be labeled "Video 1," "Video 2," or "Video 3," depending on your configuration. Also, the source could also be labeled "Game."

If none of the two solutions above work, then it appears your PS2 has bitten the dust. Best thing to do is give it a nice tombstone with a beautiful eulogy to make even the most battle-hardened tough guys cry like a baby

There is no sound on the ps2 but i do get perfect picture on the alba tv

Check both sides of the audio/video cable connection. Make sure the red/white cables are plugged in to the proper red/white components on the TV (You may have more than one, and may have plugged the audio in the wrong input). If your TV allows input from separate audio sources, make sure it's set to accept audio from the PS2. You can also make sure the video/audio cable is plugged in fully in the back of the PS2.

Connect ps3 to a non HD tv and picture only black and white?

Are you connecting it to a new SD tv after having been connected to an HD set? You can force the system to reset the video resolution settings by pressing and holding the On/Off button after the system has already turned on. I believe it is ~5-10sec. You will hear another beep after the initial startup beep. This will reset video setting to default and go through the resolution setup wizard again.

However, it is also possible that you are trying to connect a component cable to a composite tv. They are VERY different signals even though the cables fit interchangeably. If you use the Green component cable for video on a composite tv you will only see a grayscale image of the picture. This is most likely your issue. If this is the case you will need to buy a composite cable for the PS3 (the PS2 one is the exact same as the PS3 one.)

FYI Component cable has Red, Green, & Blue cables. Composite has Yellow (Video), White (Left Audio), Red (Right Audio). Both are normal RCA type plugs and will fit in each others plugs, but the signals are VERY different.

No sound on tv and black & white

The red, blue, and green are the component cable hookups. What you have w/ red, white, and yellow is called composite or on most TV's (AV) See if the TV has a side port for like a camcorder, etc. It will not work by hooking into the red/blue/green as they are different signals.

It is possible that your yellow jack may be separate from the red/white audio left/right jacks.

When connecting XBOX live to LG flatscreen there is no video only

There should be a switch on the cable that says HDTV/TV if you are using component connections, make sure that the switch is set to HDTV.

Wii has no color

Are you connecting you Wii to a progressive scan TV input (2 for audio (red)(white), 3 for video (yellow)(blue)(red)?

It's possible you have the red audio and red video inputs switched.

If you have the regular AV-Cable (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow)), and your TV has 5 inputs (progressive), look for the 3 inputs (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow). If it doesn't, connect it to a VCR and run the Wii through the VCR input.

There is no color or sound with my Wii. What do I need to do to get color and sound?

Is your tv set to show color? Is it a monochrome TV? Are all of the cables pushed in all the way? Make sure that you have the cable on the Wii pushed in all the way, then make sure that you have all the cables connected properly, all of them are connected to the "Input" slots as follows: Video(yellow) to Video(yellow), Red(right audio) to Red(right audio), White(left audio) to White(left audio). If it still doesn't work, try connecting it to another input on your TV, as the current input may be faulty.
