Question about Emerson EWF2004 20" TV

1 Answer

TV does not recognize PS2 input

I'm trying to hook up a Playstation 2 to this TV (I don't have the remote for the TV) and always get a fuzzy screen and "No Input Signal," no matter what auto presets I try. (the PS2 hooks up with the red/yellow/white three-way cord. I also have a Nintendo 64 hooked up to it, which hooks up with the older kind of cord--a round metal plug with a little needle inside--and for some reason that one works fine.) Is there any way to set the TV so it can find PS2 input...without buying a universal remote?

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:)

We had our ps2 hooked up to an old rca tv and was using the satelite remote for it channel had to be on 00 for the ps2 to work. We got a new tv and hav moved the rca and ps2 to another place but don't...


New tv's don't use dead channels like 00 anymore for there inputs.. They use sources to change from different inputs.. Make sure you have your ps2 hooked up into input plugs on the tv and then turn it on the ps2 then look on the new controller for the tv & find a button saying source .. Press that until you see your ps2 on the screen. If not check your connections try again.

Trying to get my TV can't find manuel or remote


Press the "Input" or "Source" button on the television while you have the DVD player on. Press it repeadly until you see the DVD picture on the screen.

Basically, just try changing the input on the TV to the input that the DVD player is hooked to.

If this doesn't work, you may have to get the original remote, or get a universal remote to control some of the television's features.

I hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

I have a playstation 2 plugged in to my GE 20gt372 and I can't get to a screen to use the PS2. No Input button, universal remote. Whats the trick?


I'm not familiar with Playstation 2 outputs, but you need to change the channel on your GE TV to 90 or 91, which corresponds to the S-Video or the Video Input (RCA input--not digital component video), respectively--depending on which you're using. OR if you're using the standard coaxial input you should just need to turn the TV channel to 3 or 4, whichever one corresponds to the output of your Playstation 2.

Cannot get 27" jvc av-27530 tv to recognize playstation 2


Do you have the remote? You will need to cycle through the inputs to get to video 1 or 3. You might have the buttons on the front of your tv that says tv/video or tv/vcr. If not go down the channels past 1 and it might automatically switch through the video input selections. For any of these solutions have the PS2 plugged into video 1 and turned on. Hope this helps.

TV is hooked up to cable,but only blue screen and a/v appear.


Okay...you have a place on your remote which says input or tv/vcr or something like that. You may also have an input menu. You've got to find that. Right now, you're set on one or more of the component (a/v) inputs your set has. You've got to move that back to the tv input. If you are using a cable input or antenna input...these use one connector with a screw on fitting on it.

If you have a tv that does not have cable input...antenna cable, you'll need a balun adapter. Available at any electronics store. If you're trying to input rca style plugs...not every tv has this...especially if more than 10 years old.
