SOURCE: Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

How to hook up ps2 to a emerson tv


Hi Bonnie, first, we need to know if your TV is compatible for the connections from the Playstation. The way to tell, is do you have the matching RCA inputs on the TV? These are the Yellow(Y) Red(R) and White(W) cords that come with all PS1's 2's and 3's. (Yes, all years and models are exactly the same) If your TV does NOT have the matching RCA inputs, don't worry! You can still hook it up to the TV, but it will require another piece of equipment. You will need to add a signal converter box(I will put in a link for it) What this does, is lets you plug the cords from the Playstation, into the box, then out too the place where you plug your cable or TV antenna. These boxes are also called RF Modulators. They are available at every local Walmart or Meijers respectively.I hope this helps. Good luck. ^^

Nintendo 64 HDTV


I am not an HDTV expert but I believe they are all backwards compatible so the fact it is HD should not be a problem. Have you tried a vcr or dvd player on the same hook ups? It is possible you are trying to use a video input that is already in use? I know on my TV I have the DVD hooked up with an S-video cable to "Video 2". Right next to the S-video hookup are the red, yellow, white RCA jacks. On my TV these can't be used when the S-video is in use so I have to have the games hooked up to the front panel "Video 3". I would disconnect everything and try hooking the N64 up in each input to see if you can find one that works.
