Games and movies played on a Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) are designed for a high-definition television. PS3s also work on standard definition televisions that support RCA cables. The games and movies will not look as good on these televisions, but you will be able to play them without any problems.
Insert the RCA cables into the port labeled "RCA" on the back of the PS3.
Plug the RCA red cable into the red port on the TV. Plug the yellow cable into the yellow port and the white cable into the white port.
Plug the power cable into the back of the PS3.
Plug the other end of the power cable into the electrical socket.
Press the "Power" button. Press the "Input" button on the remote until you have come to the channel displaying the PS3's menu.
