and suggestion would be greatly apperciated! thanks
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!

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.
Did you correctly select the S-Video input on the TV via the remote? In other words, if the TV is not set to look at the S-Video input then nothing will happen. You have either an "input", "source" or tv/vcr button that will allow you to select what input the tv will look at for a signal. Make sure it's set to S-Video.
The set is definately in the SAP mode, which will have some channels in spanish and some channels with no sound at all. You might be able to get an inexpenxive universal remote and go through the menu to return the audio setting to stereo, but if that does not work then you can order an original Sony remote by model number from Union Electronics at 800-648-6657.
