Question about Philips 21PV375 21 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

We have an old style(not slim) Playstation 3 and cannot get either av channel, on the TV detailed below, to play it. all plugs are plugged in. we have tried both scarts and the side (yellow, red, white) plugs with no success. The picture is fine as the VHS works. The playstation is sound. Is this TV just not compatible? surely it should work?

If you've used the HDMI port or another sort of connector and you're switching to a DIFFERENT connector, you need to default the video output on the PS3.
First, you need to plug the PS3 into your tv with just the cables you're going to be using.
Then, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
It should beep and a picture should appear on your screen.

Trying to connect dvd player to the jvc d series tv but can't figure it out. what do i do? also, do not have a remote for tv. thanks!


The DVD player should have come with a cable with red, white,and yellow ends on it. Plug these into the corresponding color plugs on the back of the DVD player. Then find the same colors on the back or front of the TV. They should be labeled "INPUT" or simply "IN" and they should be grouped together. The next step is to cycle through your inputs. There should be a "TV/VIDEO" or "INPUT" button on the TV orremote. Some sets just make you channel down all the way below channel 1 and the input appears there. If your set changes to the highest channel when you go below 1 then yours isn't like this. Anyway, at this point you should hear and see the movie you're trying to play if the DVD player says it is playing. If your TV does not have a yellow plug then it must be very old. You will need what is called an "RF modulator." This will allow you to plug in the three colors to your coaxial "screw-in" connection on the TV and you will tune to channel 3 or 4 to watch the video just like a VCR. Check any electronics store for these. Good luck!

or the previous owner of the ps3 had the settings on the system on HD settings and now the Non-HD TV cannot recognize the signal. In order to change the settings you have to find someone with an HD TV and switch the output settings from HD to AVI

We are trying to play out playstation 3 on our Olevia 226-T11


be sure to check:
The tv is on the appropriate AV Channel ( the same one you plugged the ps3 cable into )

The cables are connected properly.

Or Your channel input settings might be wrong on your tele ,, so maybe, AV 2 is set to actually take signal from the AV 3 input...
Maybe wrong but just check these things cause sometimes its something stupid and you'll kick youself later ha ..Good luck

Cant figure out how to get my psp to connect to the tv with my av cables


Okay if you got a psp slim plug them into the headphone jack and the on your tv select that input channel(where you plugged in the av cables to the t.v) then to get the display on the t.v hold the display button next to the music note button. 1 more thing if you didn't get the component cables and just the regular red yellow white ones you won't be able to view games on t.v

Unable to locat and select the AV channel on new LCD HD TV


Hi, try switching your tv to channel 3 or 4 and see if that works- there should be a switch on the back of your DVD player beside the Coaxial Cable outputs-it will allow you to use Channel 3 or 4 as the default to play dvd's. I hope that helps-if more detail or wiring diagram is needed-please leave make and model numbers and i'll try to help.
Cheers and have a Happy Holiday Season!

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


All: Try this -

P
erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
