Hold the power button (5-10 SECS) when turning it on and your PS3 will automatically set the correct video output.

My ps3 was working fine four days ago. I took it to my brother-in-laws two nights ago and hooked it up. We played it on his tv with an xbox hdmi cord and it was fine. I took it home and plugged it up to...


Ok you must be using a a/v cable at your house? And the hdmi cable at your brother in laws? If this is the problem its not the xbox hdmi cable. It doesnt matter all hdmi cables work the same. Its your settings. You need to hold you power button down and it should come on and beep twice then release it and a settings menu should pop up if it doesnt hold the power button down until it comes on and shuts off then hold the power button down again until it beeps twice. Hope this helps.

What to do with my Ps3??


Your PS3 auto-adjusted to the HDMI Input cable, so you will need to find somewhere that you can either get an HDMI cable or a HDMI TV, so you can view the screen. Then you can hook up the A/V jacks and go to your Videa and Audio Output Settings and choose them, disabling the HDMI hookup selected. Then you'll be back in business!

Ive had my PS3 hooked up using HDMI for years now but i bought a component cable because i have just bought a PVR and it can only record using component and not HDMI. The problem im getting is that when i...


Hook it up with the component cable and then hold the power button on the console until something comes up on screen. Make sure you have selected the component input on your tv or else you wont get anything anyway.

What holding the power button does is it resets the video settings to the lowest common denominator and then you can reconfigure it for the optimal picture quality of the component cables.

If that doesn't work double check the component connections on the back of the TV and just make sure they are where they should be and that no accidents were made while hooking it up.

Please post the results from these steps here so that I know what happened.

Origiannly had my son's PS# hooked up to our HD TV


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

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 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 PLAYSTATION®3 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.

    Ps3 unit stopped working


    when on standby hold the power button for 4 seconds, it runs the optimal settings screen, i dont think this is your prob but it might help. What cable was used at your neighbours? was it an hdmi cable? did you knock your ps3 when moving it?

    PS3 Connection to TV problems


    so, you tried the Video Reset with your standard av cable hooked up...turn off rear power switch, then back on. Hold front power button to turn unit on for 8 seconds or so, which will reset the video settings....unit will give some double beeps letting u know this was successful. then turn off and on again.

    Blank Screen


    It may be a resolution setting issue...the game may be outputting in a resolution that your tv doesnt support. Try going to your video settings and knocking the resolution back to 720p for your HDMI output....in settings under video, select your ouptut, and uncheck the boxes next to the types above 720p. Also make sure you have latest software update for ps3.
