Sounds like a horrible short im sorry.
Call sony if you were under warrenty.
It sounds like you had a faulty power supply and it really caused a mess.
Why would your tv catch on fire though? Their isnt and source of power that travels through rca's that can cause a fire through your tv.

Mabye your Tv was faulty..

Give sony a call.

Good luck
if you need any more help ask away

Thankyou

PS3 Power Surge Help!


hi there try using the ps3 as audio-cd play(blind, without screen)
with any other tv to make sure soun still is coming...
if there was a flash or circuit destroyíng the yellow(video)plug,
either the cable has been destroyed or the short backfired even into the video module of the psx3.
try exchanging the cable, if that doesn't do any good, the video module got smoked...

let a technician repair/replace it or you think about becoming the happy owner of another brand new psx3


good luck!

Origiannly had my son's PS# hooked up to our HD TV


You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

    No Picture, Only sound


    You need to tell the PS3 that you are now using the new video method. It is still trying to output video on the yellow cable, not the component. If you go to settings>video and tell it to use component, and then switch the cables real quick, it should work.

    An easier solution is to do a backup from the system menu, then a "restore" (quick restore is fine), and then power it off, hook up the new cable, and it will detect the video method when it turns on for the "first" time (since the restore).

    You do have component input on your TV, and that is the input you are on when you are trying this, yes?

    Playstation 3 hook up


    If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
    • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
    • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
    • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
    • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
    If that does not help try contacting sony at

    Hooking up playstation 3 to tv


    you need a ps3 scart lead. i think the one of the ps2 is the same but check. it should just hook up like a ps2. if you are having any problems with the picture hold down the power button when you start up the ps3 for 10 seconds this runs the optimal screen settings for the cable you are using. but if it is the first time you are using the ps3 it will auto start in set up mode. hope this helps
