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!

Where do I hook up the red, yellow, and white chords to the tv for my wii console to work?


The yellow is video, and the red and white are for audio. All of the ports on your TV are labeled in some fashion or another. Start with the video. You're looking for an "in" port. It will say something like "Video In" or "RCA In" or "Component In". It doesn't really matter how it's labeled, just look for a yellow port marked "in".

You'll then do the same for your audio. Find a red and white port that are right next to each other, and labeled "in". Once they're all plugged into the "in" ports, you'll have to switch your TV to the correct input. It should be something along the lines of "AUX 1" or "RCA 1" or "Video 1", something of that nature. The way you'll know for sure is to make sure your yellow plug is in the yellow "in" port, ensure your Wii is turned on, then keep switching your TV's inputs until you see your Wii's menu.

I can't seem to hook up my Insignia T.V. and my dvd player up


The way to hook up the dvd player to the television to to put a cable into the output signal section of the dvd player( Ther may be many different ways to hook-up the signal s-video and component video, regular video. You must pick one of these output signal sources to put into the input section of your television by matching them up i.e s-video out to s-video input compnent video output to component video input, regular video out to regular video input. For each of these video hook-ups there will also be a set of two sound cables. Look on the back of your television for the signal input section and hook up the video cables and the sound cables to your selected input. You should do this with both units turned off in order not to damage the circuits by shorting them on cable insertions ofr causing heavy feedback in the circuits. One this connection is complete. Trun on the television first and select the TV's signal source . By pressing the input button and using the up and down arrows to find the correct selection. By matching up all three sources you now should have the correct signal path. Turn your DVD and test the controls. try using the volume control and use you dvd to to play,ff, or stop the dvd.If all this works then you have done the set up correctly and can now enjoy your dvd's on the television Hope this helps you with your problem..

SHARP aquos 1080p HDTV: VCR image flickers when playback


I have the same model TV and the following worked for me. I am using A/V cables attached to Input1 on back of the TV.

On your Sharp TV remote control:
1. Select the Input (1-5) that is attached to your VCR.
2. Go to the menu and select options.
3. Change your color system to NTSC.

This should stop your picture frome flashing on and off.

You still may have a issue with the screen colors. I don't know of a way to address this, other than to make the picture monochrome.

Hope this helps.

Old video games


 Dear friend try to change your cables if you are using regular A/V cables, you know the white/red/yellow, use a S-video cable and or maybe try to change the Video Input settings in your TV by going in the setup menu and look for the settings that will suit your console the best, most TVs comes with adjustable Video settings that ranges from Normal, Theater or Cinema, Video Game etc. pick the one that works with your systems. If none of this works try to contact the place you bought the TV and ask them for warranty repair or exchange. good luck!
