How to Connect Your PS3 to a Sansui TV

By Kefa Olang ; Updated September 15, 2017

Sansui TVs include LED, plasma and LCD models, all of which are ideal for gaming. They display video in high- and standard-definition, depending on the devices connected. PS3 outputs content in both HD and standard-definition. This means you can connect your gaming console to your TV using a variety of ways, depending on the connection cable you're using. Connect your PS3 to your Sansui TV in minutes.

Using an AV Cable

Locate the "AV MULTI OUT" connector on the back of your PS3. Connect the AV connector on the cable into the "AV MULTI OUT," and then connect the three pins on the cable to the "VIDEO L-AUDIO-R" inputs on your Sansui TV. Both the pins and the inputs are color-coded (yellow, red and white), so match them.

Turn on your gaming console and turn on your TV.

Press the "Input" button on your TV or remote repeatedly to select the input channel for AV signals. When you select the right channel, you should see the PS3 XMB menu.

Using Component Video Cable

Connect the AV connector on your component video cable to the "AV MULTI OUT" connector on your PS3, and then connect the pins on the cable to the "COMPONENT VIDEO IN AUDIO IN" ports on your Sansui TV. Match the pin colors to the colors on the ports.

Turn on your gaming console and turn on your TV.

Press the "Input" button on your TV or remote repeatedly to select the input channel for AV signals. When you select the right channel, you should see the PS3 XMB menu. Keep in mind that using component video cables will stream content in high-definition.

Using HDMI Cable

Locate the "HDMI OUT" connector on the back of your PS3. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the connector, and then connect the other end into an open HDMI port on your Sansui TV

Turn on your gaming console and turn on your TV.

Press the "Input" button on your TV or remote repeatedly to select the input channel for the HDMI port you're using. You should see the XMB menu.
