Make sure the setting on the AV cable is set correctly. Either for HDTV or standard TV. Put your TV on the correct output channel for your connection.

Wii does not show up on the tv screen


This problem is likely due to a problem with your AV cable. Try the steps below to get your Wii up and running.
  • Make sure the Wii is turned on and all cables are plugged in.
  • Unplug the AV cable from the T.V. (The AV cable has a red plug, a yellow plug, and a white plug.)
  • Plug the AV cable back into the television making sure that the red plug goes into the red socket, the yellow plug goes into the yellow socket, and the white plug goes into the white socket.
If problems continue try replacing your AV cable with a new one.

Everything connected, the screen shows but the


Try connecting the PS3 to your TV through a different port. For example, if you are using HDMI1 on your PS3, try HDMI2 or HDMI3.

Try a different cable. If you have a friend with a working cable try that.

Try a different output on the PS3. For example, if you are currently using the HDMI port, see if the standard composite or component output will work.

While convenient to plug things into an AV reciever, I find that just adds another link in the chain of devices that could go wrong.

Good luck.

im guesing you mean your xbox 360?

if so, try toggling your AV cable behind the TV and the xbox. if neither works then you may need to purchase a new AV cable, they are acctually really easy to obtain on ebay and are rather cheap too!

Powers on but nothing happens


It happened to me too. When you plug in your av cables and are ready to play, follow these steps. With your PS3 off (Red light on), Press and hold the power button on your console. (Do not use the controller to turn it on.) Keep holding the button until you hear a second beep. (it takes about 2 to 3 seconds.) You will notice your screen flickers, then your PS3 will show up on the tv. All you did was reset the PS3 display settings. You can always go back to HDMI or AV cables. Have Fun.

Stuck on hdmi


Just plug the AV cable in as normal. The PS3 auto-detects the AV cable. Turn your PS3 on first, then your TV. Change the channel on your TV to your AV channel (YPBPR) and it should come on fine.
