How can I hook up my ps2 to my Philips Magnavox TV?


First, you'll need a PS2 composite AV cable (Red, yellow, and white cable). If you don't have one, you can get one on Amazon for pretty cheap. (http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-2-Composite-AV-Cable-PlayStation2/dp/B00004U8QX)
Next, plug the flat end of this cord into your PS2, and the red, yellow, and white plugs into their corresponding outlets on the TV. There may only be yellow and white outlets on your TV (in which case they will be on the front). Then, turn both the TV and the PS2 on and see if its working!
If you don't have red, yellow and white outlets on your TV, you will need an RF adapter for the PS2. (like this one on eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/RF-Unit-Adapter-by-Komodo-NEW-for-Playstation-PS2-PS3-/390624177322)
Hope that helps.

My lg telly has no sound or picture power button just flashing red


There are red,white,and yellow wires at the back of the T.V. Make sure
that the yellow wire is plugged into the yellow plug in hole, white wire has to be plugged into the white plug in hole, and the red wire plugged into the red plug in hole.Sometimes for the red wire you have to plug it in a black plug in hole. Make sure your T.V. is connected to you reciever. If this doesn't help I'd try calling somone to fix it for me.

Just bought hisense t36 42" and when I plug my ps3


Make sure you are connecting the red and white connectors to Audio IN on the TV.

You really should be using a HDMI wire though...

Doesnt show up on the television. It does turn on. turned playstation on and off, tried different connections, still nothing


It is likely that the problem is your AV cable. This cable has one plug that connects to your Playstation 3 and a red plug, a white plug, and a yellow plug that connects to your television. Follow these steps to get your PS3 up and running again
  1. Unplug your AV cable from your PS3 and T.V.
  2. Plug in your AV cable to your PS3 and T.V.
When plugging your AV cable back into the T.V. make sure that the red plug is in the red socket, the yellow plug is in the yellow socket and the white plug is in the white socket.
If problems persist try using a different AV cable.

I purchased a 32" Dynex


You only need to plug in the Red/White/Yellow plugs. Make sure you plug them into the correct colors on the TV. Most HDTVs have Red/Green/Blue ports. DO NOT use these ones, they are for receiving HD video signals. A lot of HDTVs also have the Red/White/Yellow plugs on the side of the TV (often labeled "Game", maybe something like "Video 3")

The Red/White/Yellow cables are known as RCA cables or Composite cables so look for any ports with those labels as well.

Im not getting anything (soud or picture) with the red, yellow, and, white cords. thats because it is set for the HDMI cable. how do i get the picture to come in without a HDMI compatable TV?


Sounds to me like you will need to plug the PS3 into a HDMI capable display and change the output settings on the PS3 to composite / AV.
Then reconnect to the non HDMI TV. The red, yellow and white cables should now work.

PS3 used to work on TV in bedroom and on TV in lounge, now it won't work on TV in bedroom


I believe your Lounge TV is an HDTV and your Bedroom TV isn't, This is what you have to do:
1. Connect it to
your Lounge TV with an HDMI cable and a red/white/yellow cable.
2. Turn it on and go to the display settings and switch it to the composite cable setting.
3. Change your TV channel where you would see the red/white/yellow cable and accept it that way.
4. You should be all set. Take it to the regular TV and connect it with the red/white/yellow cable.
cheers :)

I have a Sanyo HD TV and my Playstation 2 has the red white and yellow jacks but when I plug them in I get no color. If I move them to the bottom red jack and the top green and blue jacks it works but...


the red and the white cables are the left and right sound

the yellow one is the only one sending a picture signal

plug it into the video in...which should be yellow on that tv, the green and blue jacks are for another type of video connection
