PS2 MAKES BUZZING NOISE

I have an older TV without the red, white, & yellow input jacks, so I'm using an RF adapter for my PS2. This works fine but when I try to watch a DVD I get a very loud intermitten buzing noise. I thought the RF adapter was defective so I replaced it but it's still the same. I've had this problem with 2 different TV's & 2 different PS2's. HELP ME PLEASE! ZIPPY20

Between the ps2 and the TV, loop the cable around a metal rod or post of some sort. This should disrupt the interference you are getting which is caused by the electricities frequency! Hope this helps!

How to connect a ps2 to tv?


You have to use the cord (red, white, yellow) and the other end of the cord is designed only for PS2. That end goes in the PS2. Hope I helped.

How can I hook up my ps2 to my Philips Magnavox TV?


First, you'll need a PS2 composite AV cable (Red, yellow, and white cable). If you don't have one, you can get one on Amazon for pretty cheap. (http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-2-Composite-AV-Cable-PlayStation2/dp/B00004U8QX)
Next, plug the flat end of this cord into your PS2, and the red, yellow, and white plugs into their corresponding outlets on the TV. There may only be yellow and white outlets on your TV (in which case they will be on the front). Then, turn both the TV and the PS2 on and see if its working!
If you don't have red, yellow and white outlets on your TV, you will need an RF adapter for the PS2. (like this one on eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/RF-Unit-Adapter-by-Komodo-NEW-for-Playstation-PS2-PS3-/390624177322)
Hope that helps.

How can i play ps2 on lcd without having a black and white screen ? how can i connect the cables ?.....when i look at the back of my lcd i find three ports (red white yellow) when i use them the screen is...


1) The set of input (Yellow= Composite video, Red= Right channel audio, White= Left channel audio). This set of input is for composite video.

2) The set of input (Red= Red video signal, Green= Green video signal + sync, Blue= Blue signal, Red= Right channel audio, White = Left channel audio (the Red and White will be grouped close together). This set of input is used for Component video for HD signal.

You should try using composite video source (Yellow RCA jack) from DVD player and feed to the monitor and see if it works OK with all color showing that way we acn find out if it is the video source problem or the monitor video signal processing problem. Try the PS2 on the TV if it works OK also.

Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

Can i hook up PS2 using only the white and yellow jacks?


i download and read your owner manual .

http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/DWT1304.pdf

i do see you only have a video and a mono sound input jack , so , your ps2 as in all RCA style jack inputs , yellow is video , red and white is audio , i will assume you have yellow plug in video and red or white in audio , and on your TV remote you hit the GAME button , i'm suprised they don't use the term VIDEO , but , anyway , are these the steps you have taken ?

I wanted to know if the PS3 can be hooked up to an AC adapter


There is an RF adapter that you can buy if your TV has the port for coax cable or S-Video. Here is a picture of one of the many available RF adapters. Thanks!

No jacks in the back


Hi,

This is a very basic TV with only a single ANT/CABLE/RF INput. If you intend to use a DVD player whose outputs are the yellow, red & white RCA, then you would need either:
1. an RF modulator similar to this one or
2. use an old VCR to accept the yellow, red & white RCA cables as INputs. The VCR would then have to be connected to the ANT/CABLE/RF INput using an RF patch cord. The TV wold then have to be tuned to either Channel 3 or 4.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

TV does not recognize PS2 input


On the TV you should have a video, input or mode button. If you press that button while the PS2 is on it should pickup the signal. You need to be in video mode instead of cable mode since you are using the red, yellow, white cables. Many TVs have a few video modes so press it wait a few seconds and try again if it does not work. Hope this helps:)

Getting a dvd player to record vhs to dvd


The RF converter takes the Red/White/Yellow as INPUTS and converts them to either channel 3 or 4. You need to go the other way. You need a tuner or another VCR to convert from RF (channel 3 or 4) to a standard AV signal (Red/White/Yel).
