Using PS3 on a Non HD TV?

Sponsored Links
Hi all,

Hope you can help with my problem. I had my ps3 connected to my hd tv and was working fine. But now, due to marriage breakdown, I have had to move out and use an old CRT TV. Using the AV1 AV2, options, it doesn't seem to see the PS3. Just a blank screen.

I am using the red, yellow and white cables that came with the console. These are the same as the ps2 ones. The cables plug into a scart converter which plugs into the scart port at the back of the TV.

My xbox 360 works fine this way. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Do I have to reconnect to a HD TV and set something in the console? Am I using the right cables?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers
Christian

when turning on your system hold the power button until it beeps twice.This will set the video mode to standard definition.Very easy!
