I used a xbox hdmi cord for my ps3 and changed my ps3 settings to be compatible. The I tried to use the av audio cord and it did not show the picture. How do I fix this?


You need to do a video reset to your system. You might have to do this every time you go between HDMI and A/V. Here is a link how. It's really easy. ^^ Good luck. P.S. It's the same for every model of the PS3.

My problem is earlier today i was playing my ps3, the picture was showing on the t.v. ( a HDMI Cable conected it to the tv), but 30 minutes later, i tried to play my ps3, the picture was not showing up...


Sounds like your video settings are wrong. Since you were on the HDMI connection the video was outputting in HD. When you switched over to normal AV (composite) cables the video was still outputting in HD.

Simple fix: power off your PS3 (so it's in standby; red light is showing). Then turn it back on, using the power button on the console (not the PS3 controller) and hold down the power button until it beeps a second time (about 5 seconds). The video settings will reset to composite. If needed, change your video settings.

Normally I'd put down like 3 other things it could be (each worse than the last), but I'm fairly certain that this will fix it. If it doesn't, just say so and I have many a more potential fix available.

Hope it works!

When I turn my ps3 on I get no video on my tv and I just bought the wire so its not the wire... How can I fix this?


Obviously, first make sure the PS3 and television/projector are actually on. Then confirm the television actually works, and that the port you're connecting to on the TV works (connect another console, for example).

You should then make sure all cords are firmly attached to the PS3 and you television.

If the cables are snugly in place and you still have the issue, you should make sure the PS3 is outputting the correct video. To do this, power off your system, then press the power button to turn it on, but keep it held down for a couple of seconds (around 5 seconds I believe). It should beep and your video settings will be reset.

Still nothing? Make sure the cables are working. Swap them out with cables you know that work, or test the cables in question on something else (another PS3 or old PS2 for the regular cable, anything that has HDMI out for the HDMI cable). I know you said it's not the wire but you should confirm it because the next solutions are kind of a last resort...

You might have to send it in to Sony, which can be done here. They take forever to send it back though, and if you're out of warranty it costs $150 (it's free if you're under warranty though!).

Alternatively, if you're awesome and feeling adventurous, you can fix it yourself. Here's a guide, and more can be found online.

Regardless, hope everything works out!

Turn off the PS3.

Reset the PS3's video settings by holding the power button for at least 5 seconds while starting up.

My playstation 3 will only make sound it wont show a picture what do i do


it could be that your AV cords are not plugged into the right holes. if they are it could mean that the AV cord that is supposed to show video could be damaged. check your connections and if they are good then try replacing the AV cord.

No sound on tv or from the actual ps3 unit, no picture.


be sure all cords are plugged in correctly and that the tv itself works if nothing helps and its not any of the cords you may need to get it looked at.
