Turn hard switch off in the back of the unit. Then put your finger on the soft switch on the front of the unit. While keeping your finger on the soft button in front, switch the hard button in the back to the on position and keep finger on the soft button for 10 secs, this will reset your vid settings.

My playstaion 3 wont funell any picture through the av scart lead or the hdmi lead but it still turns on and is running fine ?


Please try the following steps :

Connect your PS3 up as normal, A/V or HDMI, it does not matter.

Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button after you hear the second beep.

Wait for the PS3 display to be reset.

You can use this method when you change from A/V or HDMI, it simply resets the display back to standard definition

Hope this helps

Playstation 3, solve blank screen with av cable


Hi everybody, i have seen alot of questions on here that refer to people getting blank screens (no signal) when turning on their ps3 (usually after using it with a HDMI cable but not always) if you are using a standard AV cable (scart or the red/white/yellow leads) and you dont get a picture most of the time all you need to do is

1, Turn on your console at the back so the res standby light comes on

2, Hold down the on/off button on the front for several seconds untill you hear the single beep followed by another single beep then release to reset video settings to default

3, If this did not work, when on standby, hold down the on/off button but when it double beeps do not let go, just keep holding until it switches off then do the same again this time it will double beep when you hear this let go, you will need to plug you pad in with the usb cable to continue.

Hope this helps

I get no picture on the tv when i turn the ps3 on. i have tried changing scart leads and scart sockets in the tv with no luck.


put your old av cables in you got with the ps3. turn system off, turn it back on using the button on the console not the control but hold the button down until you hear it beep once, keep holding it down until you hear a second beep, this will reset the ps3 back to the av outputs. you can change it to scart afterwards in the video menu settings

Hi,made connection by use of HDMI cable from ps3 to tv with no problem.But now i wont to conect to tv which doesnt have aHDMI point.So i have got a SCART Lead which conect to ps3 to tv and i have an AV...


turn on your ps3 (with your tv also on) and hear the ps3 start power beep. after you hear this normal beep, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds till you hear a beep then let go of the button.
This will reset the outputs and resolution to defaults and you should get your display again, if you don't then the ps3 has a fault.

Hi, my playstation turns on & sounds ok, the lights come on but the picture on the tv no longer comes on. i have a feeling it may be the scart lead but why would it break all of a sudden? if that is...


Hi, usually scart leads depending on their quality tend to break when been moved , unplugged or constantly adjusted, try a different scart cable and see what happens but the most likely cause is the scart.

Ps3 AV


Try holding the power button on the ps3 for about 10seconds. It should beep as it normally would turning on, carry on holding the button until it restarts. This should restart the ps3 in standard mode so that it can be viewed via rca/scart connection.

Black and white and feedback


hi this problem usually happens if you have got alot of things plugged into the telly like dvd players this causes the interferance and can be solved by disconecting these other items.
Also are you plugging it into the telly via scart lead or are you using the av leads ie the different coloured ones.
If you are using scart fitting have you tried pressing the av button on the telly controll as if you are not on the right av chanell this will cause black and white pictures so give it a try also this is the same with the coloured leads let me know how you get on.
Make sure their is nothing in the conector at the ps3 end like a biit of paper or fluff as this can cause all sorts of problems and dont use your ps3 on carpet as it will cause unit to get to hot and will cause parts to overheat and will need replacing check all air vents are free from dust and make sure its on hard surface if the unit has overheated it will cost a fortune to repair
