So here's the problem. I just bought a 56" Sharp rear projection TV and I am trying to hook up my PS2 using the yellow video cable but I get no picture. My other video components work using an S-cable but the PS2 does not have an S-cable output. I have tried all the input options on my TV. Am I doing something wrong?

Re: Yellow Video Cable Won't Work
First of all try another PS2 cable. Make sure you select the correct input. May be a loose connection inside on the actual video input socket. May also be a faulty video circuit caused by static discharge from an external source (Lightning,Power Surges). The latter will have to be repaired by a repair technician and can be rather costly, so shop around first. Good Luck,JUS004

check the video connection that is connected to the tv. If you are using RCA style plugs (red, white, and yellow) you can try swapping the colors around (put the red in the white, the yellow in the red, and the white in the yellow on the tv and your other device....cable box, vcr, dvd, etc.) this is a great way to test the cable you are using to send video to the tv. it might just be the cable!
make sure that the plug on ps2 is connected and check the settings on tv and the settings on ps2 browser are correct if possible check ps2 on another tv to be sure of it's settings if the ps2 works the check channel setting on tv make sure it's not in pal setting it should be ntsc and also check the antenna setting make sure it might be set to cable and also check cables of any sharp kinks your problem is with the yellow cable red and white is the sound
First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.
Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).
If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.
Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.
On the TV you should have a video, input or mode button. If you press that button while the PS2 is on it should pickup the signal. You need to be in video mode instead of cable mode since you are using the red, yellow, white cables. Many TVs have a few video modes so press it wait a few seconds and try again if it does not work. Hope this helps:)
You will have to use an audio/video cable for connecting the player to the tv. This cable consists of three wires, generally a white, a red and yellow. Yellow is for video and the other two are for audio. You will find corresponding colored sockets both behind the tv and the player, find out which is the input at the tv and output at the player. Good luck
I would suggest to feed video from another source such as DVD or VCR to the same input, if the video is visible from other sources on your TV; that means the video cable from your PS2 is defective. If you did not see any video from the DVD or VCR nor the PS2, it means that there maybe a loose connection inside the TV on the video input.
Hope this helps.
USE a VCR between the PS2 and the Sylvania TV. Hook the PS2 A/V cable RCA connectors( Red, Yellow, White) to one of the the Video input RCA connectors( Yellow, Red, White) on the VCR. Hook the VCR Cable output to your Sylvania Cable input. Set the Sylvania Tv to channel 3 or 4. Set the VCR channel to Line 1 or Line 2. This should work. I hope it helps you.
