I am trying to playback videos on my JVC Everio Camcorder using the colored AV cords. I hear the audio coming through my TV but there is no video/picture. I have tried adjusting the settings and tried...


First, set [SWITCH TO ANALOG I/O] to [OUTPUT]
then turn off the (camcorder) unit.

After you connect the cable (from AV connector to the TV's AV Input Connector (accepting the 3 color cables), set the TV to VIDEO mode, selecting the AV input (from your Camcorder).
Then start your playback on the camcorder ...
slide the mode switch to select the (video) mode (instead of the picture/photo mode)... press the PLAY/REC to select the playback mode, and select the desired files/frames to play.

Hope this works for you. Have you tried using the HDMI mini connector instead ? (same process, just set your TV to accept input from the HDMI input)

My ps3 will not put out any audio or video


Have you changed your settings from hdmi back to normal you should try both hdmi and scart or av on your tv, if this doesn't work then you need someone with a ps3 that works (you need your ps3 and a spare tv) and you can copy what theres does but you need to be very precise or look on you tube to see how to restore your ps3 back to the factory settings. I hope this helps mines done the same and it worked for me.

We just bought a ps3 yesterday, it worked last night to watch a movie and then we got a new tv today and it gives audio but no video.


It sounds like since you need to try resetting the video settings. When switching between HDMI and AV or changing TVs, you can get a blank screen. Try these steps to reset it:
1. Make sure console is turned off completely(red light in front should not be on)
2. Hold down power button and then turn on back power switch.
3. Listen for first beep
4. Listen for second beep
5. After you hear the second beep let go
The screen should appear. And remember, this will have to be done anytime you change TVs or change between HDMI and AV. Hope this was the problem and that it helps.

I have a phillips 26pf5520d/10 model number, ive connected a dvi cable and hdmi cable to my playstation 3 and tv, but i have no sound, please any ideas. many thanks steph


I'm assuming you mean you have HDMI coming out of the PS3 and going in to the DVI port on the back of the TV, via an adaptor or cable with a different connector on either end.
I have the same TV, you need a separate audio connection between ps3 and tv. HDMI can transmit audio and video but DVI (which is what the TV has) can only do video.
You'll need a 2 x phono female to 3.5mm jack male adaptor cable. like this one to make the audio connection.
you could also try this adaptor but its a bit big and therefore may not fit into the space available.
after getting an adaptor do this (keep your original setup the same)
1. Put the ps3 AV cable into the back of the ps3. 2. then connect the red and white plugs (ignore the yellow) from the ps3 AV into the adaptor (discussed above). 3. then connect the 3.5mm jack (from the adaptor) into the small audio port right next to the DVI port on the back of the TV (I believe its called 'DVI Audio')
I've not tried this and I don't have a ps3, yet, but in theory it should work, as long as the ps3 will send audio to the av output at the same time as to the hdmi output.
if it works, then post a response, i'd like to know for the future.
good luck
