My psp2000 willnot work on tv

To connect your psp 2000 to a tv, you can use the red, white and blue cable to watch movies on tv. If you are trying to play a game on TV, you must use the HD Component cables(red, white, yellow, green, blue) and hook it up to a progressive scan tv.

Psp connection to the TV

The cables you speak of is called component cables. They only go into color coded connection in the back of your tv. The best way is to look behind your television and more than likely there should be rows of either three or five connection and or markings saying RCA or Component connection. What your looking for is component.

Just to give you some info:
The cables you own will play vids, music, and games. But in order for the games to work you must have a HD TV.

If you see RCA jacks for your psp 2000 (slim) or 3000 (lite) than the only things will work is vids, & music (on any TV so long there is a RCA connection doesn't have to be HD).

Hope that helps.

Sony psp slim component cable trouble

Okay the cables you bought they have five plugs. I assuming your tv doesn't have component input only RCA connections (RED, WHITE, YELLOW). SO in that case you bought the wrong jacks. You may want to keep them anyway if you upgrade your tv. Because these "component" cables is the only way you can play video games on the big screen and also has to be hd, but it also will be able to play music, view pics, and watch videos. But that's a different subject.

You need to buy RCA cables for your slim. Keep in mind though you will only be able to watch movies, pics, and music. You won't be able to play video games. Once you have those it's not hard to connect. All you do is from the XMB menu go to display settings click on "switch video output" and it should connect from there. Any more problems please feel free to ask.

PSP 6 pin gen 2 cable not working on tv?

you have the wrong cable. the cable you have is for HDTV's only.
by the ports on the TV, you have a standard TV.

The cable's colors are Red, Blue, Green, Red, and White. If you have a HDTV or these ports on the back of the TV, connect them like in the picture.
from what you said, it seems like your TV's port colors are Yellow, Red and White. If you only have these ports on the back (Yellow, red, white), you need this cable:

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.
