I hooked up my sony Playstation 2 and when I went back to TV mode, no picture, just snow. Channels 1,2 and 3. Normally plays on channel 3. Checked all cable connnections to the cable box, tv, wall. Plays the video game on Video 2 mode and that's all. This happened a few years ago when someone hooked up a game system. I dont remember how they fixed it. Thank you.

Re: Can't get TV picture after hooking up PS 2
Double check what you have the cable box connected to on the TV. If it is on the RF connector, it should be channel 3 or 4 on your TV tuner. The playstation should not have any effect on the cable box connection, so the problem is how the TV is set up. Going thru the RF connector, your TV should be set to channel 3 or 4. I know you said you checked that, but you should double check that just to be certain. You may have been putting the cable box on channel 3 and not the TV tuner on channel 3. Also try channel 4, it could be the cable box got switched to that somehow.
Does the cable box go thru a VCR? If so, you need to put that on channel 3 or 4 if it is turned on.
I am pretty sure your problem is with the settings somehow. Also make sure the cable box is turned on. It is easy to make a simple mistake and sometimes hard to figure out just what that mistake was.
Check the TV menu as well, and make sure everything is set properly there.

yes , you need to be in GAME mode on the TV , since you don't have the remote you can still access GAME mode from the menu button on the front of the TV . you must be in GAME mode for your PS2 to work. thanks
I have a lightning mcqueen 13' tv model# C1310ATV, and a little purple car-DVD player model # C8000 for my grandson, I cannot get dvd to play on tv? Should I hook it up(dvd) to back of tv or the front of tv, and if so, is there a switch over button for dvd to normal tv watching. TV is hooked up to Direct tv and plays fine. But can't get dvd to play on tv, I've tryed channels 2, 3, and 4. But no picture. Again is there a switch over button or auxiliary button or ???
Your help and consideration, concerning this problem will be greatly appreciated by my grandson and myself. Thanks
If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
If you have it hooked up to a digital box, it shouldn't matter if the TV is on cable or antenna mode. The only thing that matters is that the TV is on channel 3. Channels will be changed on digital box. Some newer TV's use input 1 or 2 or AUX for it to work. If I were you i would hook everything up and start playing with the channels going up and down until you get a picture.
