You should get a Ubiversal Remote with code for your TV. If it has no code, you may follow a proposed procdure to get it. If still no valid code, you should look for an original remote for your TV.
Dispose of a good TV because you don't have a remote doesn't sound too bright.

My lg flatron n2294a - PM displays an "out of range" message and won't wirk with my ps3 when using the hdmi or AV option. Whats wrong?

Your resolution on your ps3 may be too high for the tv to display. Hook up your PS3 to you TV with the HDMI cable. Now, when you turn on your PS3, hold the power button on the PS3 for 5 seconds. It will reset the PS3 video options and recognize the HDMI connection. It will then search for the correct resolution settings on the TV. Press (X) to confirm. And that's it. You should be set. If not, then the TV is acting rather strange.

How do i connect my ps3 to my tv

You should have 2 options with your PS3 system that are included, and a couple more if you buy extra accessories. First, (and the best option) is to use the HDMI cable that came with your PS3. Simply plug it into the back of the PS3 and into one of the available HDMI slots on the TV (preferrably "HDMI 1", power up the PS3 with the switch in the back, then press the power button on the front. It should recognize that you've connected the PS3 to an HDMI cable and you just have to switch the TV to the "HDMI 1 input" with the remote. Done.

Next option (included with the PS3) is the RCA (A/V) cable which is the red/white/YELLOW cable. Connect these wires to the PS3 and the TV keeping with the color code and find the "Video 1" input with the remote. This time you may need to switch on the power of the PS3 in the back but press and HOLD the power button on the front until you hear 2 consecutive beeps which will switch the PS3 back to the factory setting of the A/V cable.

There are 2 other options using accessories for "Component Video" and "Coaxial" (same as a cable/satellite box) but the process is essentially the same. These cables are not usually included in a new PS3 console and will have to be purchased separate.

Also, in order from best picture to not-so-great picture would be: HDMI (Best), Component, A/V (RCA), and Coaxial (not-so-great). Good luck and enjoy your PS3, it has so much you can do, without having to pay extra like another popular console out there, like free blue-ray compatibility, free online game play, some free DLC for certain games, and now they're updating all the PS3's to support 3D GAMES AND MOVIES!!! :D

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv

The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    Dynex tv works. bought ps3. when hooked up to

    I would suggest you check if your PS3 is set up on going through the HDMI Cable.On your PS3's XMB scroll to settings -> Display Settings -> ANd from there go down to the one that says "Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr Super-White (HDMI)" and hit X and select the option Yes... That sets the PS3 displaying through the HDMI
    If you are already have done that I'm pretty sure you know you have to change the Input on your TV to HDMI... Take your remote and hit Input -> Scroll down to HDMI on the Input Source menu and hit Enter when you get to HDMI
    If the AV on your PS3 works and not your HDMI sounds like Display Settings issue...
    If you have done all that, that is strange if it still doesn't work.
    There are some people that are having problems with the AV Cable with the PS3, I tried this and it really does work. I switched from HDMI on one tv to a AV Cable on another and when I did that neither TV would display content from my tv. The fix for this is resetting your PS3, like on a iDevice you hold the home button and lock button, for the PS3 you hold the Power off button and the Eject button for around 10 seconds. This resets your PS3 into default video settings. Until it Turns on, Beeps, and Turns off. This should work.

    PS3 hdmi only working on some displays

    I have noticed using an HDMI cable that with some of the newer tvs you have to set up the tv also to enable HDMI for a game system. Like you said before internet tv and blueray dvd player work fine. Try adjusting the settings on the tvs themselves. I have a 50in DLP mitsubishi, and had a very troubling time getting my ps3 to work on that particular tv set while it worked flawlessly on other sets. And what I had to do was enter my tv setup menu and then power on my ps3 with both my AV and HDMI cables connected, it would pick up the AV first. Then I would alter the video settings on the PS3 for HDMI, and unplug the AV cable. Exit the tv menu and then reenter it. Then I had to setup my HDMI port from the tv to game in order for it to work, where you can set options ar usually like cable/dvd/sat, and so on. Without my TV being set to game that way it would not work. Try this and see if it helps. Good Luck.

    HDMI has been taken over by 'DVI' after pluging in P.C

    does selecting DVI, operates the HDMI mode?
    I would recheck all my connections just in case, try new batteries on the remote, try operating the TV via the controls on the panel itself.

    If none of this works, would suggest calling in the TV's customer care.

    Unable to display HD device (PS3) on HDMI screen

    Press the INPUT button on the remote or TV control panel until you find HDMI.
    When you turn on the PS3 keep your finger on the power pad until an HDMI message apears on the screen.
    This should FixYa.
    Let me know and please rate this solution.

    how is it connected to the tv? does your tv auto switch channels? if not try manually switching inputs with your tv remote (ext1, ext2, scart, hdmi etc etc) you say you connected to tv put in a disc right away? did you set up your console first? (of course point one about the display needs to be resolved before set-up can take place)

    example if you are connected to your tv with an HDMI cable and your tv does not detect and then switch to your HDMI input.. use tv remote and repeatadly press button (maybe called source on your remote maybe something else) untill the input is switched to HDMI
