Question about Sanyo DS31590 31" TV

1 Answer

PS2 hook-up When I hook up the PS2 to the tv (white, red, and yellow cord) and switch the tv to video mode, the screen is blue and all i hear is the game playing.  I tried a variation of different colors instead of using all 3 and nothing works.  Both red and white are left and right audio and yellow is video.  It wouldn't make sense to NOT have all three, either way, video doesn't work, only audio does.  Is there something I can do to fix this, or does it have to do with the yellow input on my tv that is permanently not fixable?

Re: PS2 hook-up

I would suggest to feed video from another source such as DVD or VCR to the same input, if the video is visible from other sources on your TV; that means the video cable from your PS2 is defective. If you did not see any video from the DVD or VCR nor the PS2, it means that there maybe a loose connection inside the TV on the video input.
Hope this helps.

How can I hook up my ps2 to my Philips Magnavox TV?

First, you'll need a PS2 composite AV cable (Red, yellow, and white cable). If you don't have one, you can get one on Amazon for pretty cheap. (
Next, plug the flat end of this cord into your PS2, and the red, yellow, and white plugs into their corresponding outlets on the TV. There may only be yellow and white outlets on your TV (in which case they will be on the front). Then, turn both the TV and the PS2 on and see if its working!
If you don't have red, yellow and white outlets on your TV, you will need an RF adapter for the PS2. (like this one on eBay (
Hope that helps.

No picture from dvd player on tv

Try to push the cords faster in, that might be ther problem (the red yellow and white) you can try turning them or putting the converter itself faster in or change if you can. (from 1 slot to another)

Can i hook up PS2 using only the white and yellow jacks?

i download and read your owner manual .

i do see you only have a video and a mono sound input jack , so , your ps2 as in all RCA style jack inputs , yellow is video , red and white is audio , i will assume you have yellow plug in video and red or white in audio , and on your TV remote you hit the GAME button , i'm suprised they don't use the term VIDEO , but , anyway , are these the steps you have taken ?

I have the same TV. Make sure you have hooked up the red, white, yellow leads from the "out" jacks on the DVD to the same colored "in" jacks on the back of the TV. You also have to make sure your TV is set to Video Mode. I do this with the GE remote that came with the TV. There is a WHO-INPUT button on the left side of the remote, 3rd from the bottom. Toggling this button should switch you between TV and Video mode. Hope this works for you.

TV does not recognize PS2 input

On the TV you should have a video, input or mode button. If you press that button while the PS2 is on it should pickup the signal. You need to be in video mode instead of cable mode since you are using the red, yellow, white cables. Many TVs have a few video modes so press it wait a few seconds and try again if it does not work. Hope this helps:)

It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure. From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables. From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable. From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right). Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
