Check your outgoing cables to be sure you have good connections. If using an older wire it may be bad. Also check your TV input settings to be sure your tv is set for the specific input you are using.

Message stating check signal cable


Hi there, This could be a few possible issues. What you can try depending on your setup, is 1st to try and connect your ps3 to a different telly using the same cables if possible, like if you had it connected to hd telly with hdmi cable, use this setup on another telly to see if you have the same problem. If it's the same on the 2nd telly then it's the hdmi cable that's the problem, just replace and you should be good to go, but if it works on the 2nd telly then you will have to adjust some settings usually a resolution issue on the 1st telly. You can also try using an analogue cable that came with the ps3 to see if that works. If it was the analogue cable you were using anyway you may need to get a new one, but try on another telly 1st to be sure. It's most likely just a resolution issue but if you have the same problem on 2 tellys it's probably the cable then. Hope this helps

Have ps3 that was working fine, unhooked it from one tv to another and proceeded with holding the power button 5 seconds til it beeped twice and still have blank screen


hi, if the ps3 was working fine on the other tv and you have not dropped it or anything like that then this would point towards their being a fault with the lead of the connection in the back of the telly.

what you should do is unplug it all again and refit all the leads in the back of the ps3 making sure they are pushed in far enough then plug the lead into the back of the telly making sure you push it in far enough, then switch the telly on and then switch the ps3 on if the telly dont change to the correct channel as soon as the ps3 comes on then you need to get the telly control and put the tv on the correct channel.

now depending on how many inputs the telly has would depend on how many times you press the button on the control, the button you need to press is going to be on of the following its either av, input,source,ext,aux, or a picture of a rectangle with an arrow running from left to right, now once you have found this button make sure your ps3 is on with a game in then press the button on the tv remote then wait couple of seconds it may say something like av1 on the telly if this dont show the ps3 then press it again it should then go to av2 and keep going until you see the game on the ps3 you need to keep going until your telly is on the right input channel.
once you have done this your ps3 should be working again.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Hi, i have a ps one i want to connect to my tv via the aerial. iv plugged it in and checked the av channels but cant find it, is there anything i need to do?


Hi, right now as your plugging it in via the aerial socket then this means you wont be using any of the input channels or source channels such as av ok.

now what you can try is when its plugged in and switched on go through the channels on the telly using the telly remote try channels you dont use such as 0 6 7 8 9 10 if after trying these you still have no picture then you need to put the telly on a channel you dont use say 0 then make sure ps is switched on with a game in then on telly remote choose menu or setup then you need to use the tv setup function to search the frequency as if you are tuning a channel in so do this till you see the game then store it onto that channel, now when ever you want to play the ps you just plug it in and put it on the channel you tuned in.

or an easier option would be to go to the well known auction site and buy a ps1 scart lead then when you plug this into your telly you just choose av1 or av2 and then you can play it without tuning the channel in so this owuld be the easiest way

let me know if you have any problems

No picture on tv screen from ps3 console


It may be that,

1:
You have it on the wrong channel.I personally have had trouble with this.Usually on most modern televisions there is AV 1 2 3 4 and 5,CVI,and HDMI 1 2 and 3.Try each of these channels.

2:
You don't have the cords lined up.The three cords(in the order of Yellow White Red) must be lined up straight up and down.Otherwise the sound will be on one channel while the picture will be on the other.

Thats all I can think of,I hope it helped.

How can i hook up my play station to my element tv i have tryed all the out puts and inputs on the tv


hi, are you using the scart lead fitting from the play station into the telly if you are then make sure the scart lead is pushed in all the way on the back of the telly as if its slightly out you wont get any signal.
If your using the scart lead then make sure the playstation is switched on and all the leads are in properly then you need to get your telly remote and press either the AV or source button if your remote dont have source button or av button then you need to look for a button that has a picture of a square with an arrow running through it.
Now make sure the playstation is on then start pressing the button on the remote you may need to press it two or three times till its on the right av channel.

If how ever you are using the three colored leads and plugging them into the back of your telly then you may find that this might not work but its the same as the scart lead so try pressing the same button on the remote and see what happens. if you have no luck with the three colored wires then you may need to buy a converter that converts the three colors into a scart lead you can buy these of an auction site or from any electrical or gaming shop, they cost next to nothing to buy.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My playstation whon't show up on the tv,at first it was a blue screen i tryed retarting my ps3 and now it's just a blant screen,tryed swichting the connection as well


Hi, try switching the ps3 off then remove the lead from back of ps3 and also remove from the telly refit these then try again if you are still having problems you need to find the av button on your telly remote or source button depending on your telly hopefully this should solve your problem.
If not then the chances are their is a fault with the cable that runs from the ps3 to the telly this will then need replacing if its still under warranty take it back to where you brought it from and they will replace this for you.
Let me know if you need further assistance ok

Cant get 42''lcd telly to let me play ps3 threw hdmi cable


You will most likely have to contact your LG dealer to fix this. The problem is due to the HDMI input not recognising the playstation, the cure for this is a software upgrade for External Device IDentification (EDID), which can only be done by a service centre.
