You need to connect the PS3 to the television with both connectors (HDMI and Component). Then in the display settings change it from HDMI to component and during the 30 seconds that the screen goes black you need to disconnect your HDMI cable from your playstation. Then switch to the input that the component cable is connected to on your television (ie. AV1, AV2, etc). From here you will see the countdown for the test and you can continue with these settings.

My playstation 3 will not play in 1080p. It used to work, but when we switched cables, it wont work in HD.


When you switched cables, you mean you changed the cord running from the PS3 to the TV? HD content requires an HDMI connection from the PS3 to the TV. It is possible that when you changed cables, you replaced the PS3's HDMI cable with Component Cables which can only deliver in Standard Definition and not in High Definition (720p, 1080i and 1080p).

My ps3 was recently connected to a hdmi cord at my friends house now im back home nd i plug the av cords in and nothing is coming up its still connected to the hdmi


Hello. Sounds like you need to adjust the video output setting back to component. Go to settings, display settings, then video output setting. you may need to do this under an hdmi connection in order to see it. Once you change it to component then it will switch over to a standard AV connection.

I had my ps3 hooked up to an hd tv but my tv broke and i have it hooked up to an old tv now. I'm having trouble getting a picture or sound is there any way I can configure it to my old tv?


you need a tv with hdmi to connect too then change settings back to normal but you need it connected to both hdmi and component av at once so you can switch between them both to save the settings. so when you change from hdmi to av you need to change your tv channel from hdmi to either video 1 or 2 then save your settings... hope this helps!

Component Cable problem


Ok there can be a quick solution to this problem if you have ever used a hdmi cable this could have caused the problem. try to do a front reset turn off the ps3 with the switch in the back then hold the front power on switch while still holding it turn on the back switch stll hold it and wait till it beeps twice on the second beep release this should sole the problem. if not reply back.

Connecting ps3 to a standard tv


Hello

I think that you should have a button on the remote which lets you switch to the auxilliary connection of the TV (it won't switch automatically). Try putting it on AV1 AV2 or AUX or such modes you have to refer to your TV manual to see how to switch exactly to the Video Line in Connection.

This should solve your problem :)

Cheers :)

PS3 going back to normal tv after being on a hd tv.


Shut down your PS3 then restart by pressing and holding the power button.This will reset your PS3 to its most basic 480p graphics mode so you'll be able to see enough to choose RGB SCART, component, HDMI or whatever from here.

PS3 - tv says no signal


You need to change the resolution output on your PS3 to match the capabilities of your TV. If your TV is not HD you can't leave the PS3's video output on HD. SCART is for european television connections. Have you tried using component cables? Have you tried changing your tv's source to Video 1 or Component 1 or HDMI or anything that might work? Good luck!!

PS3 conection cables


Suggest using HDMI or Component Video if you can. They provide the best picture quality. Should be able to use RCAs if need to.

Try switching the TV Mode. TV may have multiple modes if you have multiple connections.
