When the ps3 is in standby mode with just hte red light on. hold it down til it beeps takes about 5 to 10 seconds and it will bring it back to AV mode so u should be able to get picture and sound.

You either got the wrong video output on. I had this prob when I first setup my PS3. the resolution was too high for my TV. therefore I had no picture. but just sound. you would have to shut down the console, and restart it using the AV only. no HDMI cable. just to set it up to a lower resolution. then plug the HDMI back in and it should work.

If what you mean is that you are getting no picture when you set your ps3 up you may need to get a friend with an HDMI or AV depending on what you are using and have him set it for your tv's input type.

I hooked my PS3 to my HDMI cable to get a better visual screen display for my HD movies and games, but display screen went blank and I cant get the commands menu screen, how can I get the menu commands...

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

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION3 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 PLAYSTATION3 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.

  • Hope this helps please remember to rate my response, thanks!

    Using a Compaq WF1907 monitor with a Playstation3

    No. HDMI transfers picture and sound, but DVI does not. You need a audio line as well.
