My tv get snow when i try to play a game

Try using another TV. If you don't get the same problem then it's the TV and not the PS3. You might also want to try changing the display settings so that you're using the correct outputs.

LP/SP mode

Seems your Canon doesn't support LP mode playback. Please see its user manual and check its specifications for LP mode playback.

Vidio recorder when i record it wont play back what is recorded but it will play pre recorded tapes Is it campatable for LG television please model no VR550/07

If it plays back pre recorded tapes then there is nothing wrong with that section of the unit. Does it playback audio and not picture or does it not playback anything.
Also, when trying to playback a recording what is seen of the screen? Snow(black and white dots or wiggly picture?

The unit uses two separate circuits to record and playback tapes. Is any thing else connected to the unit while you are recording? If you are using anything plugged into other ports on the recorder it may not see the camera input causing it to not record anything..
