Can't connect Component Cable.

5 Replies 5,030 Views Created 08-06-2012

Trying to connect my PC monitor to my PS3.
The hold down power button thingy works with composite ( red, white & yellow )
but not with component ( blue, green, red, R/W ).
I've had it working in the past & had this problem before.

I have no idea how I got around it but I remember it took easily 2 hours of trial & error.
All cables are official & I know they work. Nothing wrong with monitor.
Tried all the obvious.

Cheers.

Re: Can't connect Component Cable.

Hi Cardiff1,

 

You can try setting the video output using the composite (red, white & yellow) then quickly change the cable to component (blue, green, red, R/W).

 

There are also some useful suggestions in this guide

 

If your still having problems after trying the above then please let us know.

Re: Can't connect Component Cable.

Fixed.
Did the picture reset connected to component dvd then selected 1080i & moved the cables over to the HDTV inputs.
Running component at 1080i on a 23" monitor looks 10X better than HDMI 1080p on a 42" TV.
Must have something to do with the amount of lines on the screen.
Had a few LAN parties using it & everyone agrees.
