Question about Toshiba 36A50 36" TV

2 Answers

TV wont read any of my game consoles input signal

I cant play my game console anymore on the TV. For some reason the TV doesnt seem to be accepting the signal coming from it.

- I am sure 100% that my console is working fine
- I am 100% sure it is not the wire that is broken as it was working the night before on another of my TVs.

Here is how it is all setup:
- TV Cable plugged into the VCR
- Second TV cable plugged from the VCR to the TV
- My game conslole in plugged in the line in video and sound input with the yellow, red and white wire.
- TV is on chanel 3
- VCR is on video mode

My TV keep showing a blue screen with no image or no sound. I will get the same result If I try with ANY of my diffferent game consoles (PS3 - N64).

I've also tried to plug them directly in the TV and use input 1 and input2 but these ones wont work either.

I have tried every arrangement possible and I think that I am about to go nuts cauz I am pretty sure that I remember how to remember how to plug those in correctly.

Please assist !!

Why doesnt my tv recieve signal from my ps3

Your tv might not receive a signal for a variety of reason.

a. You have the RCA (yellow,white,red) cables plugged in the wrong way
b. Your ps3 hasn't recognized your video due to using an hdmi cable and switching around with the settings on your ps3.
c. you have changed the video settings on your ps3 and is now set to the wrong video output.
d. the cables have become defective and you need to purchase a new one.
e. the ps3 has malfunctioned and wont take video anymore.
f. the tv input is set wrong. make sure all RCA cables are found in "video output", all hdmi cables are found in "HDMI", and all VGA cables are found under "PC".

Your guess on the problem is as good as mine.

I hope everything goes better for you : )

Wont play any game at all

Could be a few things but seems like the most common of problems: your eye has broke and it's not reading anything on the discs anymore. Or if it's just one disc not playing, the disc could be scratched or broken.

My ps3 wont play my video game disks

most proberly caused by a laser movement....the console has been moved with a disk in causeing the laser to mover slightly in the console so it now cant read the disc properly.
could try a disc cleaner as maybe just a few specks of dust but after that i beleive you may have to call sony...or, the better option buy a xbox 360 ;0) LOL
sorry cant help anymore than that
