Question about Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

My PS3 works in my HDTV but not my Analog tv through the AV Jacks. The plugs in the TV work, I checked them with my Wii and it displayed, but my PS3 will not display. The system is less than a year old and has never been mishandled, it worked in the TV in question as recently as last month and the screen blinks for a moment when it is turned on, but aside from that it is not transmitting audio or video. I thought it was the cable, so I replaced it, but it is not working with the brand new cable either. Can you help or is this something that will require factory repair?

Just bought a used ps3 and when I hooked it up to my sd tv via av it worked fine, but then when I went to hook up t up to my hdtv via av also it will not display any video or audio.


Make sure you are on the correct input, try purchasing component cables and using them(Has a red green and blue plug for video and red white plug for audio) make sure the AV on the TV works try plugging something else into it like a DVD Player make sure you switch your video setting to the correct format.

Why will my ps3 not workwhen conected via multi-av cable to the RCA jacks?it does work conected to a hd tv via hdmi


When you use an HDMI cable with your PS3, the system is outputting the signal in a digital format. You need to tell it to switch back to displaying in an analog format to use the RCA jacks, otherwise it won't work. To do this, turn off your PS3. Then, once it's off, press and hold down the power button on the system. After a few seconds, it will beep and reset the output signal back to analog. Just make sure only your RCA cables are plugged in when you do this. Hope this helps!

Powers on but won't feed through to the tv


you either have the wrong channel

if you have a tv make sure you have it set on tv if you have an hdtv set it on hdtv.

or the AV cable is not plugged into the right colors or you dont have the VIDEO cable plugged in

also ask a friend who has a ps3 to borrow there AV cable your AV cable might not work anymore.

Cant get it to go back to av


You have to reset the display setting and this is how you do it. make sure ther is no disc in the system, turn off ps3 in the back (main power switch), turn that switch back on and you should have a red power light, hold the power button, you will hear a beep right away and the a 2nd beep a few seconds later and then let go of the button. The light should be green, if it still does not work try the steps 1-2 more times. If this does not work, you will need to cal 1-800-345-7669 to get your ps3 serviced

Nintendo Wii AV Cables not work


It could be a problem inside the Wii where it only outputs a signal through HD. Have you tried a different TV using the original cables? If the problem persists I would recommend calling Nintendo.

Nintendo wii wont work with older model of Sanyo TV


how are you connecting the wii to the tv...through the rca jacks?  If so, you can not get to the input channels by the channel button.  On the remote there will be a button called either AV, Input, AV Video, Video, A/V, Input or something similar.  Hit this button until your tv goes to the appropriate av channel.

Ps3 wont show up on tv


Hey i just posted i have the same problem as you do but then I checked the SONY PS3 website and it solved my problem. Try resetting your video output. I'll paste what it says on the PS3 website but if that doesn't solve your problem go to the website. They have a bunch of troubleshooting solutions for this problem...



If while manually changing the Video Output Settings, the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, you may need to perform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.

  1. Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
  2. Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.
  3. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  4. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).
