You need a scart box the one that you put the yellow red white plugs in to then you put it in the back of the TV than go to av on the TV remote that normally works on new and old TVs

Recently noticed a small, about the size of a match head , white "dot" on the screen. It appears when the tv is powered up and stays on until the tv compleatly powers off. Nothing physically on...


The optical block is going out. You will notice more dots coming untill the screen is full of them replaceing the optical block will be quite costly over 400.00

So i was at my aunts i played it on an hd tv then i went to hook it up on my normal one and everything comes up all lights are on but nothing comes up and no sound.


This means your PS3 is still on HDTV settings. Turn the PS3 off (so that the light is red), then hold your finger over the on button until the screen appears. Holding it down resets the video settings to 480p, allowing you to configure it as you wish.

Tv and ps3 plugged in and on. av channel shows an empty screen


Follow these steps to resolve your problem:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release. This should reset the video settings.

4. Wait a few seconds, and the Play Station 3 (PS3) logo should appear.

If this does not resolve the problem, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button on the front until the Play Station 3 beeps and then turns off again. This should reset the video for you and you can turn it back on after this.

Hi.42" lg plasma tv , i cracked the screen. can this be repaired?


Bad news.. you might as well go get a replacement TV. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

When i turn on my ps3 nothing appears on my television!!!


ok, put your ps3 in standby mode(solid red light) then hold the power button. Just keep holding it until the picture shows up, asking you if you want to set in to optimal video settings, in which you say yes. if it turns of before saying this, try again and again. if after a few tries it doesn't work, check the cables in the back of the system and tv to make sure they're plugged in fully. then check to make sure your tv is on the right video setting (video 1, 2, 3, digital output, etc.)

SCREEN FOR LG 42PX5D 42 in.


I have dealt with Lg in the past regarding screens and they are unable to sell them as a spare as they are so expensive, they are only used in production and a complete new HD TV is cheaper to buy than a screen. for example LG37LP1D £900.00, a replacement screen £1500.00
