PS3 used to work on TV in bedroom and on TV in lounge, now it won't work on TV in bedroom


I believe your Lounge TV is an HDTV and your Bedroom TV isn't, This is what you have to do:
1. Connect it to
your Lounge TV with an HDMI cable and a red/white/yellow cable.
2. Turn it on and go to the display settings and switch it to the composite cable setting.
3. Change your TV channel where you would see the red/white/yellow cable and accept it that way.
4. You should be all set. Take it to the regular TV and connect it with the red/white/yellow cable.
cheers :)

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.

Alright so this is what you have to do.
1. Connect it to your HDTV with the HDMI cable and the red/white/yellow cable.
2. Turn it on and go to the display settings and switch it to the composite cable setting.
3. Change your TV channel where you would see the red/white/yellow cable and accept it that way.
4. You should be all set. Take it to the regular TV and connect it with the red/white/yellow cable.

No colour


Hi, Definitely a TV issue for me. Changed Wii to another input on TV and resolved situation. Need now to check how to get my TV to recognize colour on AV2 & 3 because I prefer to keep DVD input as AV1!

I had to use the (RCA) video inputs and not the component inputs. These are the ones made for video games. If you want to use the component input (Component cables are Red,White Red, Green, Blue). If you don't have any, you should be able to purchase them at your local electronics store like Radio Shack or Best Buy. Hope this helps, read below:

TV (This is your cable connection or TV; coax)
Component 1 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
Component 2 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
HDMI 1 (HDMI Cable)
HDMI 2 (HDMI Cable)
Video 1 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)
Video 2 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)

Sample of Component Cables:

What channel does your t.v need to be on for PS3 to work


You will need to set your TV to AV INPUT and use the supplied composite video cables (yellow, white and red RCA jacks) to connect it to the TV. If you have a high definition TV you connect the PS3 with a HDMI cable or a component cable (red, green, blue).

The AV cable you are using is an older model known as "Composite". You need a newer AV cable known as "Component". These should be available at a local video game store, such as Gamestop.

You shouldn't connect the yellow into the green socket. The Red/Green/White sockets are for HD and therefore won't work correctly with your usually RCA cables. Your TV should have Red/Yellow/White RCA input somewhere. If not you may have to use a VCR or DVD player to connect your system to your TV.

Wii gone black and white, no colour


I bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.
