Hooking your PS2 Up To your Stereo
Just got a PS2 and trying to hook it up to your TV, stereo or both? Here are instructions to help you get everything working smoothly.

First, some basic cable definitions. These are pretty much standard for ANY system or stereo you ever get, so it's good to learn them.

RED CABLE - right channel for stereo sound (get it - Red Right?)
WHITE CABLE - left channel for stereo sound
YELLOW CABLE - video signal

Your PS2 plays games and plays DVDs. So it is generating signals that go OUT of that box. You want those signals to go IN to your TV. The most simple way to do this is to simply plug them into your TV, if you have no stereo system hooked up and nothing else attached to your TV. Most TVs have stereo left in, stereo right in, and video in. Most in fact have them all color coded with the above colors. So all you do is plug the cables in and turn the TV on. Some TVs have to be set to channel 2 or 3 to know to take the signal in from the Video In line, but your manual would tell you if that was the case. Here is a diagram of the straight connection.

I would really recommend hooking a stereo system into your TV, though. The PS2 has INCREDIBLY stereo sound and you really miss out on a lot if you just have the sound coming out of your TV speakers!! Especially if you play DVDs through your PS2, you want that sound coming out of the stereo system. So in this case you would send the video to your TV, so your TV can show the picture. You then send your audio (sound) to the stereo, so it can play the sound. Most stereo systems have multiple input spots so you can plug in your CD player, your tape player, your record player, etc. So just choose an input spot that isn't taken yet. Here's an image of that connection -

So let's say you don't have a tape player and therefore plug the red cable into "Tape Input R" and plug the white cable into "Tape Input L". To make the sound play, you would now press the "Tape" selection button on your stereo so it played the music coming through the tape channel. Since that's where your PS2 is plugged in, that is the sound that will come out of your speakers.

Make sure you follow the correct color coding while plugging the wires from your ps2 to your tv. by default, the yellow is video. red and white are for the sound.

if it still doesnt show, have checked with antoher tv and replace the wirings.

fixya!

I had my playstion 3 hooked up to an hd tv and then i hooked it up to a regular tv..the tv isnt reconizing the playstation at alll..i dont know what to do,


Hook the ps3 back up to the hd tv. From here you need to acces the settings resolution options. Set the resolution to 480 (standard tv). Once set for standard, turn off, disconnect, and set up to non hd tv. Problem solved.

Playstion 3 was hook up hdmi try to hook up with the regular way has no picture.


You need to turn the ps3 off so that the red light is on then hold the power button for about 10 seconds. It will beep twice then turn off, let go then turn back on. This resets the video default settings.

Have xbox 360....got used,no instruct. book,was hooked to flat screen tv, no longer have flat screen tv, have regular tv hook up game comsole to tv, wont work.....why


If it was hooked to a flat screen it was most likely on high def. There is a switch on the connection to the tv to make it work on a regular defination tv. Just slide the switch over to regular and it should work. Hope this helps.

Turns on fine no picture on a diferent TV


Hi, i have had to solve this problem in my own home. You must have access to some HDMI output to fix this. the playstation 3 does not have auto-detect like the xbox 360. meaning if you have an hdmi then switch to standard AV, the system wont detect this. you need to hook up the system to an hdmi output, then switch the settings over to the AV output while both sets are plugged in. if you need more clarification feel free to email me! gungraveislife@gmail.com
