Dvd showing pink screen


Sounds like a bad cable or port. Use component if you have it to test the connection. Anti Piracy blacks out the video (from what I have seen) whereas video signal losses with change the color. On the Pink screen, wiggle the connections until you find the culprit.

Can't get the play station to work with the tv. The av is plugged in correctly and the ps is turned on. Don't know which channel to go to, and when EXT we tried all different inputs and it still doesn't...


Which generation playstation are you referring to The PS2 or PS3. The PS2 would be connected with a composite cable by default i.e red white and yellow cable. Connect the cable to the corresponding input on the TV, match color codes. Switch to correct input by using your remote controller. Press the AV button and a list of inputs come's up.Select av1 or av2 and check if you get a picture. If you use a ps3 then same as before press AV button on remote and select appropriate option on screen HDMI,Component or Composite.

HDMI looks like this

PS3 streches off the TV Screen


Try holding the power button on the ps3 for about 10seconds. It should beep as it normally would turning on, carry on holding the button until it restarts. This should restart the ps3 in standard mode so that it can be viewed via rca/scart connection.

Playstation 3 distorted picture when turned on


I had the same problem (see above) and was able to fix it. The solution my be an S-video plug. I went to Wal-Mart and picked up a universal component S-A/V cable ("universal" in that you can use it for PS2, PS3, XBOX 360, Elite & Wii consoles).

At first, I used only the audio and video plugs and the picture still appeared distorted. Then I plugged the S-cable in (to the TV) and the picture displayed crystal clear!

Keep in mind, I never had to use an S-cable with my PS3 before. It worked fine without it from day one. I also can't blame the firmware update because I did the firware update AFTER I noticed the distorted picture. Previous to that, I had done every other firmware update with no problems. I know it's not the TV because I tried on four different televions and the result was the same -- so I'm left scratching my head, but at least the picture is clear.

For those wondering, the cables I bought were Phillips S-AV cable. It comes in a white box and is 8 feet long. The price was about $20. Sony offeres component A/V cables for more than double the cost, but chances are, those cables would have been useless to me since they did not include an S-video plug.

If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If the DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) cannot be played, or the picture is distorted: Back to top
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION®3 system format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
  • If the PLAYSTATION®3 is connected to a VCR or a combination TV/VCR unit, copy protection encoding on some DVDs and BDs may cause image distortion, or may cause the image to become lighter or darker. In such cases, connect the system to the TV directly.
  • If the DVD or BD does not match the region code set in the PLAYSTATION®3, it cannot be played.
  • Some DVDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to temporarily increase the viewer age restriction level.
  • Some BDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to change the parental control level.
  • The BD may be disc-locked. Enter the password that was set when the disc was created.
