    I've won a PS1 ( [​IMG] ), but no cables were included.
    Now I think I found the cables:

    Are it these cables?

    and where do I have to put every cable?
    My PS1 back looks like this:

    Yes you will need a mains lead [​IMG] It goes in the 2-pin hole on the far right in that picture. I'm just tracking down what they're called...

    "Replacement mains lead also known as a figure of 8 mains leads"

    ...I'd take that to mean it doesn't need a special one and it'll take a standard, generic mains lead with the right shaped connector. Check the hardware manual (you can get them online)

    They don't have "codes", I don't know what else to tell you. It's a Playstation video (AV) cable and a power cord. The Playstation 2 takes exactly the same cables, probably easier to find them under that name.

    Yeah that's a good cable - an RGB cable is better than a standard RCA cable (the red yellow white one). Edit - That site is expensive though you can get them for like 5 euros shipped on ebay.

    And I know someone's already answered this but of course you need a power cable! Use some common sense! What do you think it is, solar powered?! [​IMG]

    The cables don't have codes they're just generic cables - you should be able to pick up a power cable at a local hardware store.

    I'm using my videocable for PS1 on my PS2 so the other way should work fine too.
