Re: about installing my cd/dvd player to my console

This is a bit confusing. You cannot hook a CD/DVD player up to the PS2 console. If your trying to figure how to hook a PS2 console and a CD /DVD player up to a AV system. you need to hook the PS2 Yellow, White and Red cables to any input. Not just a DVD or CD input. Yellow is Video you need that. Hook the red and white to the same selected input.

My dvd player everything is ok, picture but there is no tone

Make sure your cable(s) are firm and snugly fitted into their ports. Check the connection for the audio. If you are using an RCA cable, the white and red cables are for audio.

I have a music cd stuck in my ps3, it doesent pick it up and display it so I cant use the eject from the controller feature and my eject button doesent work... what do I do?

Here is what you can try to do.

1. Take the 2 top covers off your console.
2. Unplug the power plug going to the motherboard, left side in the front.
3 Gently tilt the player towards the left, their is a ribbon cable underneath connected to the motherboard, unlock the cable by gently prying the front clip up. Depending on what PS3 model you have you might have to unlock the cable from the player.
4. On the bottom of the player unscrew the 2 screws on the back on the underneath side, then unscrew the 2 to 3 screws along the bottom edge in the front.
5. Lift the top metal cover tilting from the back to front.
6. On the top of the player you will need to unscrew 3 to 5 screws depending on the model.
7. Gently lift the cover off the player there might be a locking snap on each side of the player lid holding it in place.
8. You can now retrieve the CD.
9. Here is the tricky part. Before you put anything back together you will need to recalibrate the drive, its easier than it sounds. Take the drive (remeber don't put it togethere) hook the ribbon cable back up the the PS3 and the plug the power supply back in.
now make sure you have a CD any CD sitting on the spindle.
10. Turn you PS3 back on and press eject this will calibrate it back to where everything is supposed to be.

If it still doesn't eject then you will need a eject motor or board. Here is a site for parts. If you run into trouble then add a comment to this post.

Good Luck!

I want to install my Xbox (w/out the DVD player) into my pc but i don't have the installation cd. can i do it? or can i download the installation cd for free?where can i get it?please help..thank you...

You can't connect your xbox in your PC, There's just no way to do that. If you're talking about the dvd drive, you won't find any official installation disc for PC as removing the dvd drive form your Xbox voids the waranty.

How to hook dvd player to tv

The dvd player should have come with three cables. A yellow red and white one, or 5 cables, a blue a green an orange a white and a red. on the back of your dvd player and the back of your television there should be holes with these same colors. Plug these cables into the corresponding holes on both the tv and dvd player.

Wii playback on games etc is only green and blue other colours

Sounds like a faulty cable or a loose connection. Check to make sure everything is connected snugly from your Wii to your television. Also try plugging the cables coming from your Wii into another available connector on your television if you have one available. Otherwise it's most likely the cord that connects the two if your tv displays other systems, such as your cable/satellite or dvd player, correctly.
