Re: Playstation not working!

When you say nothing is working do you mean that the power indicator on the game console is not illuminated? Or does it not show up on the TV?

Cannot connect paly station to LCD television why

Some tv's are sketchy with the connections you can use. I would sugest HDMI for an LCD tv. You can control the frame refresh rate via the PS3 too.Then again, after looking closer at the picture you have catagorized, you are talking about a PS2? All you need is a RFU adapter, and it will work just fine. ^^ Good luck.

Doesnt show up on the television. It does turn on. turned playstation on and off, tried different connections, still nothing

It is likely that the problem is your AV cable. This cable has one plug that connects to your Playstation 3 and a red plug, a white plug, and a yellow plug that connects to your television. Follow these steps to get your PS3 up and running again
  1. Unplug your AV cable from your PS3 and T.V.
  2. Plug in your AV cable to your PS3 and T.V.
When plugging your AV cable back into the T.V. make sure that the red plug is in the red socket, the yellow plug is in the yellow socket and the white plug is in the white socket.
If problems persist try using a different AV cable.

How to on ps2

  • Find a clear space, preferably out of direct sunlight, to set up your PlayStation 2.

  • Plug the AC adapter into the designated area on the back of the PlayStation 2 and then plug it into the wall socket.

  • Plug your controller into the controller slot adjacent to the disc tray.

  • Plug your memory card into the memory card slot above the controller slot (see "How to Managage a PlayStation 2 Memory Card").

  • Press the eject button to open the disc tray. Insert a game disc and press the eject button again to close the tray and begin play.

  • Turn the PlayStation 2 off when done playing by either flipping the on/off switch or pressing the sleep button.

    I tried to charge my psp with a few 9 volt batteries and i think i fried the motherboard it wont turn on with the battery or without the battery and connected to the AC adaptor. When i try to plug the AC...

    You could try another battery.But if another battery doesn't work,sorry mate I think it's dead.In future make sure you only use what you know is compatible,also NEVER try to run the PSP with the AC adaptor without the battery in.The PSP safety and support booklet states: Do not use the PSP system with the AC Adaptor when the Battery Pack is not inserted in the system.If the AC Adaptor is disconnected suddenly,it may result in damage to the system.

    If it is the motherboard that's burnt out I think you can replace it but they're expensive I think,I saw one for a PSP1000 for

    My usb cable will not charge my psp

    Are you plugging the charging plug into the PSP?There are two plugs on the USB cable 1.the USB plug. 2.the charger plug itself. The USB cable looks like the other end that plugs into the computer only smaller.The charger plug looks like the ordinary AC adaptor.
    Also note that You need the computer/device that the PSP is connected to,must be turned on,well this is true with mine anyway.
    Also the USB does not charge the PSP as fast as the AC adaptor.

    Ps3 doesnt connect to my computer monitor, how can i make it work?

    Hey daashman,

    According to information provided by the manufacturer, this particular Samsung model supports both VGA and DVI-type cable connections. The Playstation 3 however, does not currently support cables of either of these formats.

    The good news is that there are ways around these limitations, typically in the form of a cable adaptor. Most models of the Playstation 3 should have an option for owners to use an HDMI cable to connect their TV or monitor, and many major electronic retailers often sell HDMI to DVI adaptors or adaptor cables of varying lengths.

    If you're not quite sure what to look for, I would suggest checking out an online search engine for "HDMI to DVI adaptors." This should pull up a number of links that can provide you with not only detailed pictures, but also average pricing of the products available to you as well.

    Hope this helps you out.
