So some time ago I picked up an Sony Trinitron off of Craigslist. It has component in as well as S-video. S-video works fine but when I plug in something through component I get a black and white diagonal mess of a screen. I though it’d just gotten a TV with jacked up inputs. My friends were going to be giving away their Trinitron so I was going to switch TVs with them. I took my system over there to test but I got the same results.
So I’m thinking there must not be a problem with the TV but rather something is off with my setup somehow. Regrettably I only have the one multi system component cable, but I’ve tried outputting component from my Wii and PS2 and I’ve gotten the same results with both.
Any assistance with this issue would be appreciated.
