PS3 video output on SD tv is wavy with discoloration and black line
It worked fine when we connected through a dvd player to another SD TV. When we connected to RCA input [yellow,white,red] on another TV, the video is wavy, side to side and vertical movement and has bad color. This happens on a Phillips 3 year old set and on a Trinitron 12 year old set.

Usually when I hear of solid colors that display on a TV, my first solution would be to change the cable. We know your DVD player is working as you connected it straight to your TV and you report no problems. I assume you are using a composite cable (red, white, and yellow) Red and White being the Audio and Yellow your video.
But since your player works...and your tv works under the same input, then the only other issue would be the output cable from the receiver or the actual composite input or output connector is faulty.
try a video game system in place of the dvd player through your receiver..if it happens again, then change the receiver's output cable...if it still persists then your reciever's output connector is faulty.
I found the problem, or at least the solution. I set the switch on the back of the DVD to "remote" and reset the TV settings on the remote (although they had not changed and were still OK). With the TV/Video switch set to "colorstream", I finally got the video from the DVD. This was odd, because my TV says it does not accept progressive scan and my settings have always been with the switch on 480i on the DVD. The only change has been a added cable TV DVR box capable of HD (although TV is not HD). Does not seem like that should affect things since the cable box just outputs to the TV. But, at any rate, this regained our picture.
A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.
I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.
Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.
You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.
If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...
And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.
Newer TVs have multiple inputs. Mr Mark is correct, you generally do not daisy-chain Audio/Video units unless you are using a recording device. Cable box to Cable input on TV. DVD player to other inputs.
Let's get some terminology out of the way. Specifically for the Mintek DVD-1600. There are NO inputs.
Coaxial Audio out (orange) is for digital audio only. Usually connects to stereo reciever for Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Not for TV.
S-Video (black w/4 small holes, 1 square) is for better quality video than composite. Use this to TV instead of Composite if you have a S-Video input on your TV.
Composite (Yellow) Older video input type. Works just fine. Connect to TV.
Audio Output ( Red & White) for analog stereo only. Goes to TV. Red=right, White=left channels.
Component Video Out (Blue, Green White) is the newest video output type in this unit. Better than S-Video. Use this option if available on your TV instead of S-Video or component.
Try to set your video output settings on your dvd player . I assume you used to connect to your old tv by using svideo and now you are using another connection like component, scart or hdmi.If the video output setttings on your dvd are still on svideo you will have to set it to rgb or component or else you will get black and white images..
it sounds like there is a problem with either the output on the PS3 or the input on the circuit board of the TV. I would try a reset on the PS3 first. Also make sure that there are no other video or audio cords plugged into the PS3 because this will cause the PS3 not to send the signal via the HDMI.
