    I bought this PS3 and it was originally hooked up through a HDMI cable. I tried it a my brothers house and it worked. Now at my home on my Zenith, since I don't have HDMI, my tv is showing NO SIGNAL. What can I do to reset the PS3 or whatever to get it to work?

    PS3 was working fine for about a week, using regular A/V cables on standard TV. Bought the new Toshiba 42xv545 and hooked up the PS3 w/ HDMI cables (cheap one from an Amazon company). Was playing LBP for about 20 minutes and the screen flickered. Five minutes later, it flickered again and the screen went black. Haven't been able to get picture or audio since, not even PS home screen. Adjusted HDMI cable, switched inputs, reset PS3 and TV, even tried the regular A/V cables and all I got was "no signal."

    I thought it may be the cheap HDMI cable but who knows. Going to try the old TV again tonight...process of elimination.

You need to change the resolution output on your PS3 to match the capabilities of your TV. If your TV is not HD you can't leave the PS3's video output on HD. SCART is for european television connections. Have you tried using component cables? Have you tried changing your tv's source to Video 1 or Component 1 or HDMI or anything that might work? Good luck!!

I can not see any picture or sound at all. We have the HDMI cable pluged in the PS3 and the TV, but red white ,and yellow plugs we r not sure where they should be.

There are different settings for PS3 video output, i.e. if it is set for HDMI it wont display when a scart lead is used. Try the scart connector, if it works go into settings and change to how you want it set, dont forget to save settings

PS3 hdmi connection

With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.
