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.

maybe just an RGB video cable if all you want is a picture, or an HDMI cable (pricier) if you want an HD Picture AND sound from the TV. it looks like a USB jack but a USB plug won't fit it.

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.

If by regular cables you are talking about the standard red/yellow/white composite cables, then, yes, it will affect HD as composite cannot send an HD signal. Only HDMI and component (red/blue/green video only) cables.

Change to HDMI and let us know if it works for you.

So i have had a ps3 for about 2 years now and the hdmi chord worked fine for 1 year and then all of a sudden i started lossing signal from the tv. If i wiggle the hdmi chord the picture will sometimes come...


Hi friend, see since your regular (component/composite) chord worked well so the problem is with your HDMI chord. It is losing connection with some internal wire try to use another HDMI cable if it still not works so problem may be with your HDMI port.

Composite/component cable works fine but the cost of graphics..... but still HDMI graphics are just too good...

Hope it will work for you.

Bravia & Sky+HD, aspect problem


There is nothing wrong with you Sony Bravia TV and it suppport all HD and SD formats.

Are you viewing the HD version of the channel when it is showing a standard defination show. e.g SKY1 HD instead of SKY1.

This means that regular standard defination shows are in a 4:3 ratio and does not fill the whole screen. In order to view these type of shows you will need to tune to regular channel instead of the HD version.

You can check if a show is brocast in HD by going into the tv guide and checking for the HD symbol in the programme symposis.

HDMI Connection


Yes it does, HDMI can handle more information and provide better picture and sound. Works like this, Cable-OK, Component-Even Better, HDMI and DVI-both Digital and the best sound and video. The only way to get full HD is with HDMI or DVI. Hope this helps

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.

Samsung lcd ln46a550pf3 no sound from hdtv reciever


ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.
