How to connect to tv


There are several ways to connect a game console to a TV. The question is, what system are you trying to connect? Some features may be available for the newer generations, that are not on older models. I'm assuming, since you have posted with a picture of a Sony Playstation 3, (PS3) that is the system you are trying to connect. The easiest way to install is to use the supplied (RCA) connection cords that comes with every PS3 system. One side connects to the corresponding port in the back of the system, and the other end has (3) multicolor plugs. They will match the colors on most TV's. Some of the older TV's do not have the RCA ports and will require an adapter to connect this way. These colors are; YELLOW (video out) RED (audio out right channel) and WHITE (audio out left channel or MONO) The PS3 also has and HDMI port, and is much simpler to connect the TV and game console together. As I stated before, not all TV's are equipped with HDMI. HDMI cables carry both the video and the sound through 1 cable. To install this way, simply turn on your TV to the correct aux port, in this case HDMI, then connect the the HDMI cable from the PS3 to an available port on the TV. After you have connected the cords, turn the system on and it will tell you that it has "Detected an HDMI connection. Would you like to use this connection?" Select yes. The rest is automatic.
Also, if you didn't know and are needing a new rca cord to connect to the TV, search for a cord from one of the older systems in the SONY family and they will save you some cash, as they are all exactly the same. PS1, PS2, and PS3 all use the same connection. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Iam not able to get a picture from my hdmi cable, but can still here sound. tried three different hdmi cables... please can you help...


1. Your Connections Are Faulty

Quite often, the cause of the no picture problem is a simple one - loose cords. Make sure that the cords are plugged in tightly, both on the TV side and the PS3 side. This is especially true with the HDMI cable connection on the PS3. Often, it looks tight, but you still might need to wiggle it a bit more to seat it correctly. Along the same lines, make sure that the cords you are using are new and match the connections properly on both the TV and your console.

2. Wrong Connection Settings

If you are using the HDMI/DVI cables and you don't get any picture, make sure to check your video ouput settings. If your PS3 thinks you are using standard A/V cords to connect to the set, you'll have issues. The opposite is true too - if you are using the A/V cords and your PS3 thinks otherwise, you'll have the same no picture problem. Make sure you settings match the types of cable connectors you are using.

3. Wrong Resolution Setting


This is also an easy mistake to make that can result in no picture showing on your television screen. For example, if you've been using your PS3 with an HDTV and then try to hook it up to a standard definition television set, you'll encounter this issue. The cure is simple; just go into your settings and switch back to standard resolution and then restart your system. The 720p resolution is the default setting and this should work for most standard definition televisions.

My PS3 turns on but nothing shows up even when i


All you need to do is turn it off then turn it back on and hold the reset/power button for a few seconds until it beeps then this will automatically setup your PS3 to whatever your TV is setup, I have found this to be an awesome help.

No sound on tv or from the actual ps3 unit, no picture.


be sure all cords are plugged in correctly and that the tv itself works if nothing helps and its not any of the cords you may need to get it looked at.

European PS3 now in the U.S.


You need a TV that supports PAL.
Or, if you want to keep your TV, you need a PAL to NTSC converter.
Here's a list of converters.

Good luck with your PS3.

Play Station 3


When you start your PS3, press the power button and hold it for 5 seconds. It will beep and reset the machine to the default settings. What is happening is it is thinking you are still using the other cable. Reset to default and it will recognize the new cable. Hope that helps.
