I am having the same issue, yet, I can get to game mode. It still shows nothing & the A/V cables are hooked up in the front. I tried ch. 3 & still nothing, so, now I'm thinking that I have to have the remote because input/line is on it & I'm thinking that it has to be pressed for the blank screen to show for the game to work.
Could you verify this for me & also let me know where you got the remote for $5 bucks & the part# on the back of the remote. I appreciate it!!!
I had this problem on a symphonic 27 inch TV I just bought from a friend
who no longer had a remote.What I did was bought a universal remote (a specific one that someone
told me about) for 8 bucks at walmart and I was then able to switch to
game mode with the Input select on the remote. The remote I bought that
actually worked is this one: http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Magnavox-PM435S-4-Device-Universal/dp/B00006686A/ref=acc_glance_ce_ai_-2_1_tit/002-3174824-8273629 Make
sure you look at it before you buy it and make sure it has a button
that specifically says "input" on it. I know that some of the universal
remotes don't have an input select button or one that doesn't work. As
long as you get a Philips-Magnavox that has that button, you should be
ok. Much better solution that paying 30 bucks for a new remote
specifically for the TV. Hope this helps.

Make sure you have the cables hooked up properly, regardless of whether your using an HDMI cable or regular A/V cables.
Best thing to do in a case like this is to do a factory reset on your PS3. Be sure that the A/V cables are being used originally and are hooked up properly.
Here is how to do the factory reset on a PS3:
1 - Turn on TV and set input to port
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release
after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to
the TV's native resolution for all settings.
Try that, if you still don't get video and you know the cables and the TV are set to the right output then its an issue with the main board not having any output.
yes , you need to be in GAME mode on the TV , since you don't have the remote you can still access GAME mode from the menu button on the front of the TV . you must be in GAME mode for your PS2 to work. thanks
Could possibly be that it is not connected up correctly, or your playstation has died. If you have access to another playstation, hook it up to your cables as they are hooked up. If the screen works. Your playstation has died.
If not, and you have the same issues, try their cables, and if that doesn't work. You have it plugged in incorrectly.
i have a tv that only has the audio out put and video out put as well . and my playstation 2 works on it. just plug the white and yellow ends in to your tv and it will still work without you unplugging any cables. hope this helps.
I have a ps2 also so just hook up the yellow and white plugs. It will work if you connect those 2 right but you must have a remote to turn it to game mode or no lucc. This is where i'm at right now trying to find my remote..hahaha
