Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

No Picture, Only sound

I hooked up my Playstation 3 onto the TV using the red yellow white component but the picture is either blurry or doesn't stop shaking. So I went to RadioShack and asked about it, they hooked up my wire onto their TV, the same thing happened, so the gave me a new wire but not the normal red yellow white one, they gave me the HD component, the one with the green and blue. So I went home hooked it up but their is only sound no picture, but when I take it to RadioShack and they hook up my wire with my Playstation 3, it works with sound and picture. WHAT DO I DO?

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?

How to hook up the wii cords


First, you are posting a question about the Wii under the PS2 heading. Problem number one! Number 2! If your TV is new enough, it might not have the connections for A/V jacks like the yellow red and white. Here is how they connect. Yellow, video, Red, right sound, white, left sound(mono)

All picture and no sound


Rick:
simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know

Trying to hook up playstation 3 with either HDMI cable or RCA cable Neither one is producing anything? WHat could be the problem?


For the HDMI your TV input for that HDMI input may be skipped you should check and make sure that it is not greyed out and that you can select it. For the RCA.... You should make sure that you are hooking it up right. You either have composite cable 1 yellow video and a red and either white or black left and right audio to Yellow video and Red and white on the TV, or you have component which will be red green and blue all three will be for video and you will need 2 more rca jacks for audio. It matters where you plug the red green and blue cables as well. getting them backwards either won't work or will give you a tinted picture.

Additionally, make sure that your TV doesn't share inputs. Some TVs will have Video 1 and it will be composite RCA and HDMI and you can select which to use. if it sais HDMI one and Video one you should be fine there if both say video one or the like they are likely shared

Hope this helps!

I,ve connected my wii to the led tv using a wiii component cable(5 leads) but have used only 3 of them red green & blue 1,s leaving a red & white 1 left i have good picture but no sound help please


your cable is split into two different connections for your tv... the red green and blue cables are for HD only. They are their own little set. the yellow cable is your video cable for normal tv's. the red and white cables are sound cables, also for normal tv's. I would unplug the red, green, and blue cables, and use the yellow, red (right sound), and white (left sound).

Good luck!

We have been given a ps3 with no instruction leaflet. we have attached the ps3 to the tv but are not getting a picture can you please help? Thank you very much


I am providing the link for you to download the owners manual. depending on how its hooked up will determine the channel your tv needs to be on. If you are using Composite(red,white,yellow) then you need to put the tv on Input, If your using component cables(red,blue,green then red and white) your tv will need to be put on component channel. If your using HDMI then obviously it needs to be on channel labeled HDMI. If you had to use an RF modulator with coaxil cable then the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 depending wht you set it for. If this helps please rate me. I do not get paid for this but I like helping
. Here is the link.

How can i hook up a ps3 to a tv


Hello,

"These are the optional uses of a Playstation 3, not just playing video games this is a lot cooler. Video connections on a Playstation 3, now this is the back of a standard Playstation 3. I'll show you really quick; we have our power, AV outs, digital audio, LAN for internet, HDMI out so pretty much if you want to get high definition picture quality you're going to have to go out and get yourself a HDMI cable. It will go from HDMI the Playstation 3 to the back of your HDTV, that is your HDMI cable this will carry audio and video in one cable. Of course if you want to go on the internet you have the choice of the wireless if you do buy a wireless, if not you can just plug in your inthernet cable right there. We'll skip the audio for now cause that is the next chapter and we'll go to the EV out, you have two options here if you still want high definition video and you don't have HDMI capabilities on your TV you can still go component. If your TV will allow it, component is the RGB that is your red, blue and green cables so with these cables you can still have a high definition signal broadcast to your TV through this output right here. If you are using the standard TV standard definition you don't have the capabilities of high definition yet it doesn't matter you'll get there. Just go ahead and grab one of the standard cables which is your RCA cables and this will be your yellow, white and red. This of course yellow is for the video, white is for your left audio and red is for your right audio so with these cables you can plug up to any standard TV even a high definition TV but only give you standard definition picture quality. So these are the video connections on a Playstation 3."

Please rate the solution. Thanks for contacting Fixya.

We have sound but no picture on our Wii


Connect a DVD player using red white and yellow to the TV if you get picture and sound, then reconnect the wii red, white, and yellow to the same input.

If only the wii does not show video you will need new red white, and yellow cables. I would try a friends red, white, and yellow cables first even to their TV where their wii is already working.

If new cables are not working you will need to contact Nintendo as there is an issue with your wii. You can't change the wii video to progressive without a component kit, and since you have yellow you obviously don't have a component cable for the wii.
