AV cable keeps getting loose!

19 replies 708 views Edited May 1, 2010

My PS3 slim's AV cable keeps getting loose. Whenever it gets loose, the screen starts to turn red. This happens alot now since my cables are hanging a little. How can i prevent my AV cable from getting loose? And no, I cannot move it from where it is.

Hopefully it's the cable that's bad. Maybe someone tripped on the wire or jerked it out of place. Like I said, better the cable than the port on the PS3 damaged.

no one has tripped over the cable, i am the only child and i am the only one who touches my ps3, it's not a bad ps3 or a bad cable it's just that it sometimes gets loose. I know it gets loose because when i see the screen flashes red i tighten the av cable behind my ps3 and the red is gone.

I tried taping the cable to the wall so that there is no weight pulling down on it but it still gets a little loose... D:

Get some pliers and try to gently bend the connector so it has a little more grab. That's what I'd do.

Note, I'm not responsible if you jack your **bleep** up.
