There could be two problem ,
1. the cable you are using to connect the station to the box is faulty.
2. the video card signal may be bad, try connecting a computer flat panel

How to connect nintedo to plasma tv

Hi,things you will need,
  • Video game console
  • HDMI cable
  • Audio/visual cable.
  1. Plug in your video game console's power source.
  2. Connect one end of the game console's audio/visual cable into the corresponding slot on the console if you have an older game console. If you have a newer console, insert one end of an HDMI cable into your console's "HDMI OUT" port.

  3. Plug the red and white ends of the audio/visual cable into the corresponding red and white audio inputs located on the back of your Vizio plasma TV if you have an older game console. Plug the yellow cable into the yellow "Video In" input. Depending on which model of Vizio TV you have, the yellow input may be located either right next to the audio inputs or it could be located a few ports away.

  4. Plug an HDMI cable into one of your TV's "HDMI IN" ports, if you have a newer console.

  5. Turn on your video game console and your Vizio plasma TV. Press the "TV/VIDEO" button on your remote to cycle through the various inputs. You should eventually get to an input that's displaying your video game console's home screen.
I think that will do.

Have nice day.

Have no visual display from hdmi - only sound

The settings on the PS3 are sending the video signal throught the hdmi port. Either go through the XMB via sys settings, display settings, ... Or if you only have a low def tv then hold the power for 5 seconds (when you turn it on i belive) and it resets it. You may have to adjust the audio settings at the same time, because if you pressed yes when the HDMI was first connected, you agreed to send the audio signal via hdmi as well.

No Audio or Visual for my Xbox360, HELP!!!

Hi kittenkicker (great name),
Unfortunately you have a graphics processor unit (gpu) fault, the console needs stripping down and new heatsink compound applying to the chip,this is basically the same fix as rrod so there are plenty of guides on youtube on how to do this if you want to tackle this yourself, there are also guides on quick fixes, but I would not recommend these, they only last a short while,but could cause lasting damage.
Ive given you this advice free, so a thumbs up if it helps will be payment enough.

If the disk isn't spinning up at all then the DVD ROM drive is returning an error code to the firmware and will probably need repairing, you can check this simply by closing the lid, counting to ten and opening it again, if the drive is spinning the disk it will still be rotating when you open the lid.

if the disk is still spinning when you open the lid try gently cleaning the laser lens (the little glassy looking dome inside the drive) this is best done with an alcohol-free CD wipe or using an ordinary CD cleaning disk.

You can usually get hold of either or both from your local supermarket these days. **Warning: I have seen people on this site and others advise the use of isopropyl alcohol on the end of a q-tip (cotton bud), THIS IS VERY BAD ADVICE as the laser lens is made of Polycarbonate and isopropyl alcohol will cause it to yellow and even crack!**

It would also be advisable to give the drive a blow out with an air duster, you can get one from your local electronics, plumbing or hardware retailer.

Unfortunately if non of this helps you are realistically going to need to contact Sony to find out about your warranty status and repair options.

The ps2 has a sound threshold, which it cannot surpass. Do you hear any volume at all? If you hear NO volume, verify that your audio visual cable is properly seated in both the TV and the console. If you hear some volume, and its just really quiet, try a different TV.

Ps2 slimline.



You mean A/V ( Audio /Visual)cables.  This could be several things.  Motherboard bad. A/V Socket on back of Slim has a bad connection to the motherboard.  Try it on another TV, you may have a bad input on the TV.  You selected the wrong input on the TV. The channel is not set properly on the TV. 


The first two can be repaired by a Technician that knows about Playstation Repair and has plenty of Current experince.I run the website, and will charge up to $51 to repair this, if it is related to the first two possible problems.
