Digital Cable problems

I RECENTLY PURCHASED ONE OF THE NEW METAL GEAR BUNDLE SYSTEMS AND WHEN I HOOKED IT UP TO MY TV, THE PICTURE HAD WHAT APPEARED TO BE A REFRESH LINE LOOPING ON THE SCREEN AND THE VOLUME HAD SOME STATIC IN IT. I TRIED IT ON 4 DIFFERENT TELEVISION SETS IN ALL AND FOUND THAT IT ONLY DOES THIS ON THE TV'S WITH A DIGITAL CABLE BOX (2 WITH AND 2 WITHOUT). I HAVE THE PS3 HOOKED UP THROUGH AN HDMI CABLE FOR VIDEO AND OPTICAL CABLE FOR AUDIO. mY DIGITAL CABLE IS RAN THROUGH JUST A STANDAND RCA (RED, WHITE AND YELOOW) CABLE. ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO WHY THIS IS HAPPENING AND HOW TO FIX IT????????????

It sounds like you may have a ground loop. I had a similar problem when I first got my PS3. I noticed faint red and blue lines rising through the screen. I did some asking and someone suggested removing the ground prong from the plug. I was reluctant to try this so I got another power cord and tried it out on that one. When i turned it on, no more scan lines. Hope that works.

I previously had my wii on an older tv and it worked fine. I recently purchased a new tv (Sharp Quatron Aquos) and when I hooked up my wii and same cables to the tv, my screen is now a hazy black and white...


You are using composite cables(red,white,yellow) mine did the same thing. The aquos is all digital, wont read analog, which is what composite cables are.
They now make a component cable for the wii. I paid $28 at b.b.

Wii game hooked up to new Sharp LED tv. TV is color and the wii is in black and white.


Usually this is either a cable or a mode issue. First make sure that you have the correct cable connections. (Composite video cable to a component video jack is one possible cause of the problem.) Component video cables are not included with the set but will give better results. However, composite video in from the wii's composite video out should give good results.

If you are using HDMI or component video cables, then go into the Wii video menus to select the correct mode for your tv. Check your TV manual and the Wii setup guide for details on the mode (resolution, etc) you should be using.

If the problem persists, try new video cables and make sure that they are fully seated on both sides. Try switching inputs if you have several available.

I hope this helps.

80GB PS3 displays Snow/White screen during playback


Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.

No picture, only sound through HDMI port


You have the video [yellow cord] on the wrong rca jack. Or a bad video cord. Should be easy to fix.

Wii Remotes can turn on but no arrows.


I had the same problem. When I looked at my system, I noticed the sensor was turned sideways with my tv remote in front of it. When I turned my sensor around correctly, and moved my tv remote away from it, the arrows suddenly appeared! Make sure nothing is blocking your sensor!

No Picture, Only sound


You need to tell the PS3 that you are now using the new video method. It is still trying to output video on the yellow cable, not the component. If you go to settings>video and tell it to use component, and then switch the cables real quick, it should work.

An easier solution is to do a backup from the system menu, then a "restore" (quick restore is fine), and then power it off, hook up the new cable, and it will detect the video method when it turns on for the "first" time (since the restore).

You do have component input on your TV, and that is the input you are on when you are trying this, yes?
