How to Connect a PS3 to a Toshiba Projection TV

Updated July 20, 2017

The Sony PlayStation 3 features access to a wide library of high definition games, the ability to watch blu-rays, listen to music, and browse the Internet. You can even use your PS3 to stream Netflix directly to your TV. In order to get the fun started, you will need to connect your PS3 to your Toshiba Projection TV via AV, S-video, or HDMI cables.

Plug the PS3 end of the AV cable into the PS3.

Plug the yellow, white, and red end of the AV cable into the corresponding input on your television.

Turn on your television to the correct video input channel.

Turn on your PS3. The PS3 will automatically configure the video to the optimum settings and display.

Plug the PS3 end of the cable into the video output port on the PS3.

Plug in the S-video end into the corresponding input on the television.

Turn on your television to the correct video input channel.

Turn on your PS3.

Plug in one end of the HDMI cable into the back of the PS3.

Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the back of your television.

Turn on your television to the correct video input channel.

Turn on your PS3.

Tip

For the best picture, it is recommended that you use the HDMI cable in order to take advantage of the PS3's 1080p capabilities; if your TV supports them. If your PS3 does not automatically display, you may need to reset the video settings. To do this, turn the console off. Then, turn it back on, holding the power button for at least five seconds. The video settings will be reset to standard resolution. If you have a home theatre system, you can output the audio through an optical cable regardless of the type of video cables you are using.
