I am trying to run an older PS2 through my new LCD. I purchased two different sets of AV Component cords at Best Buy. They have five color-coded cords; two for sound and three for video. I get sound but no video. I've switched between Component 1 and 2 on the Input menu, but get the same results. What do I need to do to get video AND audio? Tx

Check the component video inputs. A lot of manufactures incorporate a composite video input into the green component input. (meaning try to put the yellow cable into the green input)
Also, check the sides and bottom of your TV. Some TV sets have some what hidden inputs for alternate AV setups.
If you only have an RF setup then you will need to buy and hookup an RF modulator. (recommend you just buy a new TV if this is the case!)
If you could have listed the model number of the TV then I could check to see what video inputs you actually do have and be able to assist you better.
What I would recommend though is to purchase component video cables or use an HD hookup. You will find your video gameplay to be much better.
The red, blue, and green are the component cable hookups. What you have w/ red, white, and yellow is called composite or on most TV's (AV) See if the TV has a side port for like a camcorder, etc. It will not work by hooking into the red/blue/green as they are different signals.
It is possible that your yellow jack may be separate from the red/white audio left/right jacks.
Make sure the xbox display settings are not defulted to 480. Have you tried using the component hookup instead? Theres really not that big a difference in quality between the two if your settings are correct in the xbox display menu.
Most TV's have problems doing 1080p over component. Dial the Xbox back to 1080i. Make sure the big switch on the Xbox AV cable is set to 'HDTV' not 'TV'(common problem) If the problem persists, try plugging into different hookups, use HDMI (if your console supports it) or buy one of the HDMI adaptors from PDP or MadCatz if your console doesnt. HDMI will reduce the clutter and will make 1080p a reality.
Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.
Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).
If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.
Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.
There is an input imbalance. Either try connecting your cables to different inputs on your TV, or try connecting to different outputs on your DVD player. (Only worry about the yellow video cable bit initially). Alternatively, try a different cable type; you'll have some ins and outs that don't use RCA connectors.
Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on
my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd
players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and
white. The connections go as follows:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The
yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red
cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one,
then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs
have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your
game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding
cords go to the correct component slots.
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots.
The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr.
Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.
