"Connect an AV Cable" PSP Problem

I bought a PSP Component cable off ebay and tried to connect my PSP to my HDTV, but everytime I try to "Switch Video Output" the psp tells me to "Connect an AV cable" I have a standard AV cable and that works fine. It may be just the cable, but I see other people having this problem and I am thinking it may not be. I have PSP-2001 and I am running the latest M33 custom firmware.

Did you ever find a solution to this, by buying another set of cables or even buying the Sony branded ones?

I'm having the same exact issue and not sure whether I should just mindlessly go out and buy another set of cables when the problem might not be related to the cables.

Did you try to check the video output settings?? or the connected display settings. IF your AV cable really is working in fine condition..then it should read the psp connection,.. or maybe your HDTV doesn't recognize the file system of your AV cable.

Does your TV have component inputs?

You can only play games with the component (red,green,blue) cable
the composite (red,yellow,white) is only for music and pictures.

make sure you have the proper connections on your tv and theyre hooked up properly.

I WANT TO FINE THE WAY TO CONNECT THE CABLES FROM PSP TO TV.


First you're going to need a slim psp, if you have it then you just plug the cables to the right places. To play games on your tv you need a tv with progressive scan and component inputs.

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.

I cannot get my psp slim, lite to play on my tv.


Connect the psp side to the bottom right. Connect the tv side to the corresponding input colors. Your tv needs to have progressive scan and the right inputs.
