Beside the 3 colour wire what else is needed to plug into the tv?

If the three color wire your talking about is the Standard Definition cord that comes with the system out-of-box, then nothing. The RCA cord (three color cord) is enough to hook your PS3 up to almost all T.V.s. You would have to do a bit of searching to find a T.V. so old it didn't have RCA jacks on it, so you have little to worry about. The only other cords you need should also have come with your system when you bought it. The power cord, for the PS3 itself, and the USB cord, for charging your controller.

Now if you have a more modern T.V. with HDMI ports, you can go out and buy an HDMI cord to use. This isn't necessary though, HDMI just gives a higher resolution. You'd have a clearer picture, as well as a slightly wider view, but this unnecessary. It's a nice upgrade, but you don't need it.

Have fun with your PS3, and good luck with your gaming!

When I put on my ps3 my tv comes up not supported

when you go to turn it on, press and hold the power button until you hear a 2nd beep, then let go. that will set the graphics card back to regular not HD, plug the ps3 in with the yellow red and white rca cord. and you should see the ps3, then once you have your ps3 working you can switch the cord to the HD cord and use the ps3 to see what signal your tv can use by going to Settings>Display Settings>Video Output settings on your ps3 xmb. hope this helps

I am looking to hook up my Ps3 to the back of my proscan 32lb30qd tv. The AV multi out cords dont seem to work with the tv. Is the cord broken or am i doing something wrong.

Use a YPbPR component connection to connect your Ps3 to your TV. You can find this product at Best Buy. Just tell them exactly what you are trying to do.

PS3 problem with 42LG50 tv.

So I did finally find a solution....I returned my PS3 for a brand new one. Turns out it was my PS3. This is what I did...I bought a blue ray player, I connected the hdmi to my problem. So it wasnt my TV or HDMI cord. Returned the blue ray player for my money back, and returned my PS3 for a new one. Problem solved. Seems like alot of work, but it was the only way I could troubleshoot my issue. Just for kicks, try using another HDMI cord. I went through 3 different kind. Good luck.

Hdmi cord causing purple and green lines

It may be a ground loop caused by cable televisoin and the Ps3, as PS3 uses a 3 prong plug. Try unplugging the ps3 power cord and see if the lines go away. If they do, it is a ground problem...usually with cable tv. If this is the case, try a good quality power bar with cable suppression jacks on it. It will help eliminate the ground loop in most caese.
