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

RF cable coax out to TV from the RF Modulator .....RCA jacks "red-yellow-white from ps2 to RF modulator "its not called a converter box"//lol Put the TV on channel 3 you should see the ps2 screen. Same way you would hook up a DVD player to a CRT TV..heres a video TVs DVD Players How to Connect TV DVD Player VCR With Modulator
hi that"s easy thing. first connect rca wire red white yellow to dvd hook up same colour red white & yellow female rca connection. then use another rca wire connect to your tv be video input in yellow one . red & white be sound input - red to red . white to white. just that. good luck!!
i do see you only have a video and a mono sound input jack , so , your ps2 as in all RCA style jack inputs , yellow is video , red and white is audio , i will assume you have yellow plug in video and red or white in audio , and on your TV remote you hit the GAME button , i'm suprised they don't use the term VIDEO , but , anyway , are these the steps you have taken ?
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.
It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure.
From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables.
From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable.
From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right).
Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
