Turn the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. Put your finger on the soft power button on the front of the ps3, keep your finger on the soft button while simultanesouly switching the hard power button to the on position.

Keep you finger on the soft power button for approx 10secs, this will reset your vid settings on the ps3.

Connecting wii to tv that has only red white and yellow when you have a cable with red white yellow blue and green


if you have a HD tv you need the HDMI cable that includes red white yellow blue and green cables,if you have a standard tv use the regular jack or A/V cable that has red white yellow blue and green cables.

I tried to use my PS3 on a new tv (Sony Bravia) with an HDMI cable. After seeing the delay, I decided to reconnect my PS3 back to an old tv using the regular A/V cables (the red, yellow, white ones) but...


This happens when you change the output settings to HD, then switch back to regular a/v because the tv dosen't recognize the signal. Thankfully there is an easy fix. Just turn the PS3 system on using the power button on the front and continue to hold it until you hear a second "beep" sound from the system. then picture should beging to work again.

I took my ps3 to my cousins house who has an HD tv with a HD wire. But once I took it back to my regular tv it didn't work. The screen was black. Please help me.


I had this same problem myself, and it's simple to fix. First, make sure to power off your OS3. The only light should be the red "Standby Mode" light. Now, press and hold the power button until you hear a beep, and the wait a moment. The console should start outputting to your TV again.

The problem your having is the video settings. Once the PS3 was set to output to HDMI, that's all it's outputting to. It can't tell when there is an RCA connection (those red white and yellow connectors), only when there is a new HDMI. Next time you go to your friends, just make sure to into the settings and choose the RCA video output before you disconnect from his TV and go home, then you shouldn't have any problems.

Here are the Sony instructions for this process.

Ps3 not wworking on regular TV after hdmi cable was used.


sounds like you have the ps3 set up in HD video display settings?

If this is the case hook it up to the regular tv and when you turn the power on continue to hold down the power button til it beeps this restores the video to default settings sometimes it takes a 2nd power down and power up holding it down to work.

If this doesnt solve please give more details

I have just recently bought a second hand PS£


Ohhhhh u got there a problem i had months ago. PS3 only gives u one output signal at a time, that means either u use it hdmi or u use it the normal rca way.Bad thing is that the ppl at sony didnt think of this kind of situation.
What u need to do is go to ur friend's house and use his hd tv to config ur ps3 to the correct output signal(rca), both on video and audio. If u bought the ps3 from ur friend, he should know how to do it, since he had to config it to hd in the first place. Be sure to probe it with the config u are going to use at home :)

HOOKING UP XBOX 360 TO HDTV


You have to use the regular red and white cords(not the yellow) and u have to use all 3 hd cords. If ur tv doesnt have a place to put the cords in, then it isnt HD. Also on the plug connecting to the 360, there is a switch that has HD and regular, switch it to HD. hope this helped.

Trouble getting HD picture

My xbox 360 elite video port went out on my previous xbox, and on the one i just got. it could be your video port on your xbox or it could be the your tv. Hdmi cords usually dont go out so i dont think it could be that. A way to check if its you xbox would be to try the regular cords that you get with your xbox on the same tv and see if it works. If it doesnt, try the same thing on a different tv. if it doesnt work on that tv either then its your xbox. if it does work, then it must be the other tv.
