Hi

to hook up your console to your tv your console has to be switched on and in good condition,A lso you will be needing an A/V(Audio-Visual) cable, a cable that has to or three outlets normally red,yellow and white(Yellow is for video while white and red are the Audio outlets for stereo) These outlets go into an inlet on your tv and the other end goes into the back of your console

This enables you to see the picture and hear the sounds.If this is done then you are good to go.

How do I hook up the Retro Duo nes/snes system to an older tv that has no a/v connections. I do have a Direct tv cable box but when I hooked the a/v cables to it absolutely nothing happened


Do you have a VCR that can hook to the TV that has the proper hook ups for your game system? Be sure your TV is on proper channel for your VCR to work (test it with a VCR tape and see if it plays) then change your channel on your vcr until it shows your game you have in your system hope that helps good luck

My sega genesis has a clear picture but static sound can someone help?


Try an older TV set. I am not joking. It might very well be the case that newer TV sets/high-end TV systems can't handle the signals of the older video game consoles. Because the newr tv;s don't have the signal transfer inside of them to make the old consoles work so you could use the genesis av cables to hook up to a digital tv instead of the rf switch.

I dont know how to set it up


- First you need a rather old TV, like maybe before 2002, if you have one. Because on newer TVs N64 graphics are terrible !

- Once you have your TV, check to see if you have two cables with your 64 (if you don't something is missing !). One shaped like a little box on one end and an electrical plug on the other : you hook up the little box to your N64 and plug the device in the nearest power socket. The other cable has a a strange black and rectangular input that hook up in your N64 and 3 sockets that are red, yellow and white. Connect the latter on your TV by finding the same sockets with the same colours !

- Connect your controller to the console (it's the round-ish sockets in front of it)

- insert your game

- THEN turn on your console. Don't turn it on unless everything hooked up !

(if it doesn't work you may want to try the famous turn-off-the-console-blow-into-the-cartridge-put-it-back-and-try-turning-your-N64-again trick !)

Good luck ! :)

Playstation 3 is on however the tv screen is


Since I don't know if this has worked for you before I can only give you advice. I'll do my very best to help you in whatever way I can.

If it's a new system I need to know how you have it hooked up. I'll start by having you troubleshoot some things:

If you want it hooked up through HDMI connection you'll need to hook up both the composite (Red White & Yellow) cord that came with it; along with the HDMI cord.

Turn your console on and set your TV input to whichever input the composite cable is hooked into.

Assuming you have picture:

Go to your settings and select Display Options. At the next menu, you'll want to switch it from composite to HDMI. Your screen will go blank.

Set your TV to whichever HDMI input you have it hooked to and you should see a display. Confirm if necessary.

If you still have no picutre:

What I would initially do then is make sure the system is off, turn your TV input to the correct video settings for the composite, and when you turn it on, hold your finger on the power button for a few seconds after it's on to set the default picture display.

You should have a picture now. If not, it could be your TV. Try these same steps on another TV.

Please let us know if you're having further issues & Good Luck!

Respectfully,

Don

Cant get nintendo 64 hooked up to flat screen


Wow, the classic Nintendo 64. That was my first gaming system. I do know that the 64 has default RCA cords (Red, Yellow, White). They are required to be inputed into your TV. Make sure the 64 is plugged into a power source and that it turns on. Make sure that your game actually works. Clean out your 64 by using a can of compressed air, do the same to your game.

Finally try to start it up.

If I helped in any way please rate me and help me out.

Thanks,

N64 isn't working with Vizio HDTV...


Do this, hook it up to another tv just to make sure that the N64 is workig properly. If it works on another tv then you know the system is fine. If it doesn't work on another tv then it could be that you have dirty games and you need to clean the contacts and then reinsert them into the system and get them to work.

Keep the system on a known good working tv until you can get your games to work and display properly. You can clean the games by using a damp q-tip and wiping the contacts on the bottom of the game back and forth a bunch of times, there will probably be all kinds of black that comes off.

keep on trying games untill you get one to work and display properly, then go ahead and move the tv to the one you want it to work on and test it out and it just might work then.

Sega mega drive - how do I plug it into tv?


Ok, a few basics to hooking up your console. Firstly you should have two cords a power cord that plugs into the wall and into the back of the console. Another cord should also plug into the back of the console and the other end should be plugged into the back of the television into the slot called in. However if this plug is already taken by a vcr you can hook the cord from the sega up to the vcr in port. After it's all plugged in and the console and tv are on and it's directly hooked up to the tv then change the tv channel to 3 or 4 and you should have something on one of those channels. However if you hooked it up through the vcr then you have to go to the channel that normal has your vcr then change the channel on your vcr to 3 or 4. I think this is all you need to know good luck.
