Hard re-set the unit by pressing and holding down the power button (front panel) from the off position for at least seconds. - it will beep 3 - 4 times

I hooked hdmi to tv. i went thru ps3 settings for video n audio n swithch audio to the red n white output. now i have sound thru surround sound but my video is flickering n i cant c so i can undo it


Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the AV Multi Out port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.

2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the ON/OFF button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.


3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

I had my ps3 hooked up through a HDMI plug and I swithed tv's, now I have no video with the HDMI plug or the red, white, and yellow. Please help!


Hi, The settings on the PS3 are sending the video signal throught the hdmi port. Either go through the XMB via sys settings, display settings,or if you only have a low def tv then hold the power for 5 seconds (when you turn it on i belive) and it resets it. You may have to adjust the audio settings at the same time, because if you pressed yes when the HDMI was first connected, you agreed to send the audio signal via hdmi as well.

Hdmi doesn't work


Make sure everything is pluged in correctly and the Playstation 3 is on stand-by. The using the power button on the console hold it for about 5 seconds till you hear two beeps. And this will reset the display settings.

Don't hold it to long or it will go on stand-by.

Also try reversing the ends of the HDMI

My ps3 will work on the rca hookups but not on the hdmi hookups


When you hooked up the HDMI did you go into display settings and change all the PS3 settings to HDMI instead of AVI? I thought my HDMI wasnt working, just a blank screen but I could hear the sound, then it hit me..... change the video and display settings to HDMI and poof, there was the pic. lol

Hello can you help with this error!


When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.

Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.

Hope this helps.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
