Go into the menu on the TV and go to the far right under setup. Select "video label" then select "program". A menu will come up listing the 7 inputs. Make sure that the input you are using for your PS3 is not set to "skip". While you're there, set any of the other outputs you're not using to "skip". Your TV/Video button will only cycle through the ones that aren't skipped. Have Fun!

I had my PS3 hooked up using a HDMI cable and it worked fine. Upon moving I had to switch to Component cables and now I dont get any picture or sound. Can you help?


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you are using component cable on your Ps3 you need to set the input of your Tv to Component Mode. Use the Remote of the Tv look for a Source or Input button then select Component Input.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Hooking up my Sony HD Tv


Couple of items come to mind.
In the menu of the receiver, is there a way to choose video and RGB?
Set the receiver to SAT
Connect the HD Cable Box to SAT
Check the TV is on Monitor RGB.
Check the input being used by the monitor RGB cables is selected on the TV.
Have a picture? NO, receiver has issues.
Yes? Do this with each input to confirm they work.
You can reset the whole receiver to factory by holding the tone button down and holding the standby button for three seconds. (This clears your speaker setups, too.)

I bought a 3 year old Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV SW29M50 29 and it did not come with a manual question thereare 5 jacks above the video jacks what are they for i have surround sound speakers how do...


The inputs you refer to should be colored as follows.
Red
Blue
Green
Red
White
(not necessarily in this order)
These are what are called Component Video inputs and is one of the way that HD capable equipment connect to your television. It will not get true HD picture but this input will provide you with a crisper clearer picture.

Good Luck and Happy New Year.....

I have a sony trinitron XBR and the PIP won't turn off. Any help is greatly appreciated.


Please make sure that one input is connected to the UHF/VHF port of the TV and other is connected to composite or component ports. If you have connected likewise, please perform the steps below:
  1. Ensure the video source is turned on.
  2. Ensure the video source is connected to an available VIDEO input jack on the back of the television. IMPORTANT: The VIDEO 5 input cannot be used to view a program in the PIP window.
  3. On the television remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button.
  4. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  5. If the issue is not resolved, connect the Audio/Video (A/V) cable from the video source to a different VIDEO input jack on the television.
  6. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  7. If the issue is not resolved, replace the A/V cable.

Hooking up my new PS3 to my five year old 55" Mitsubishi HDTV.


The Sony outputs 180P, not 1080i. There is a difference. I don't know what exactly, but Sony says 1080p is for superior.

Sony 57 Inch XBR 2001


I don't have the XBR, but on my sony, using the cable box remote, I had to go into menu/display/etc. and mark the 1080i, 720p, and 480i settings. you usually get a "if you can see this" comment if your tv accepts the settings. for standard tv i set the screen to normal, and when the upper channels go to HD, they auto go to full screen. Sounds like you are using the component cable, and also make sure you are on the video port of remote, and the the TV input. The above worked for mine. Hope it helps.

No input detected on projector


it sounds like the A/V reciever does not upconvert the component signal to HDMI. Not many do. The Marantz recievers will (SR6001, SR8001, etc..). Also bear in mind that HDMI cables are finicky and may require amplification over a few meters long.
