Re: TV is hooked up to cable,but only blue screen and a/v...
Okay...you have a place on your remote which says input or tv/vcr or something like that. You may also have an input menu. You've got to find that. Right now, you're set on one or more of the component (a/v) inputs your set has. You've got to move that back to the tv input. If you are using a cable input or antenna input...these use one connector with a screw on fitting on it.
If you have a tv that does not have cable input...antenna cable, you'll need a balun adapter. Available at any electronics store. If you're trying to input rca style plugs...not every tv has this...especially if more than 10 years old.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I was able to find a service manual online which lists the inputs for that TV as the following:
RF connector (cable/antenna)
Composite (yellow video, red/white audio)
Component (red/green/blue video, red/white audio)
D-Sub (analog PC connector)
DVI (digital PC connector)
Your Playstation would need to be plugged into either the component or composite connectors depending on which Playstation you have. The Playstation 1, Playstation 2, and Playstation 3 all can use the same composite cable, and the Playstation 2 and Playstation 3 can both use the same component cable. The Playstation 4 only uses HDMI, which your TV doesn't support, so you would need to use an HDMI to component converter (under $20 on Amazon).
As for the Roku, same rules apply, but it again depends on your Roku model.
Are you using the AV connector cable? If so look on your tv for an av channel. Best thing to do though is Try using a HDMI cable. Most tv's recognise when a HDMI cable is plugged in and the tv switches automatically to the HD channel.
Hope this helps.
I once had this issue, the solution was hard to find(five hours), but fairly simple. (This works for HDMI cable set up, but I'm not sure concerning AV) Note: Yes, the solution sounds ridiculous, but for this issue, it works.
1. Unhook your PS3 from the current TV/Computer screen you have it hooked up to.
2. Hook it up to a different TV/Computer screen that you have or a friend may have.
3. Power on the PS3 and it should have a screen and everything and work just fine.
4. Hook it back to your original TV/Computer screen and power on the PS3 and it should work fine there again aswell.
The red, blue, and green are the component cable hookups. What you have w/ red, white, and yellow is called composite or on most TV's (AV) See if the TV has a side port for like a camcorder, etc. It will not work by hooking into the red/blue/green as they are different signals.
It is possible that your yellow jack may be separate from the red/white audio left/right jacks.
I have got a Finlux plasma television and i cant find my instructions. I have just been given a play station 2 and i have put it all correct in my television but its not coming up on my screen. I dont know what channel to put it on, please can you help me!?
Did you try holding down the Power button until you heard 3 beeps? It is not uncommon for the video output to exceed the resolution of different television. This hard reset feature was added to troubleshoot such a problem, factory resetting the video settings.
Could possibly be that it is not connected up correctly, or your playstation has died. If you have access to another playstation, hook it up to your cables as they are hooked up. If the screen works. Your playstation has died.
If not, and you have the same issues, try their cables, and if that doesn't work. You have it plugged in incorrectly.
I just had this same problem over the weekend. Is your TV hooked up via HDMI?? Mine was and i've been having problems with the tv image shrinking whenever i turn on the tv, so i would have to change the channel 1 or 2 times for the image to come up normally. On Saturday I went to change the channel and then all of a sudden I hearld this loud pop and when the image came on it was just a sky blue screen, I couldnt see anything, but I could hear the channel. So I disconnected the HDMI and hooked up the tv with component cables I had and now it works fine. I ordered a new HDMI cable just to see if it will work again. If not, i'm calling Olevia.
