Just hold down the power button for 5 seconds. You need to do this whenever you switch from hdmi to rca cables or vice versa.

How to reset my ps3


Amanda, check your connections. Are you using the RCA cords, or HDMI? The PS3 can run the HDMI, but it's not as stable as the RCA cords provided by SONY. However, the HDMI connection is the only way to get the 1080dp or Hi-def video from your system. If you were using the HDMI and are switching back to the RCA cord, the system will NOT auto-recognize the connection like it did with the HDMI. You will have to either connect the system to a TV with HDMI, then manually change the connection type, or do a video reset on the system. Pretty easy to do. Simply turn on the system, and while holding the power button, wait for the second "beep" After you hear the second "beep" take your finger off of the power button and watch your screen. YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED YOUR FIRST VIDEO RESET!!! ^^It should turn on, but may take a moment. Sometimes it's instant, sometimes it can take about a minute. This works for ALL PS3 models.

My ps3 turns on but no picture


First, how are you connecting? RCA jacks(red yellow white cords) or HDMI? If it's the RCA cords, they were known to develope shorts in the yellow cord that connects to your TV. Just try another cord. They are very cheap, and the cords from all of the other Playstations will work for the PS3. Second, try to do a picture reset on your system. Sometimes, going from HDMI, back to the RCA confuses the system because the RCA connections are NOT detected automatically, HDMI is. To do a picture reset, turn the system on, then push the power button once,(you'll hear a beep) then push and hold the power button until the system shuts off.(you should hear 2 beeps) Then when you turn the system back on, the picture will be reset. ^^ Good luck, and I hope this helps.

In a hotel with a tv that only has coaxial input. bought a rf modulator video converter from rca to coaxial. Was running hdmi at home. current set up does not work? console should automatically switch to...


Unfortunately it does not automatically switch. Turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on any TV or monitor. You can then configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to. You'll have to do the same thing when you take it back to your original location.

My tv is not showing my ps3 through the rca connectors. Why is that?


If you were using it through HDMI settings, it will remain at HDMI. The default is RCA but when you switch it it will stay at that setting. To get it to RCA you need to connect back through your HDMI and switch it to RCA.

Any questions let me know.

Sometimes its a pain to re hook up the cords if you are stuck in HD mode and tryin to go back to Regular or Vise Versa, power off the ps3 press and hold the power button for 3 seconds. that will switch the video card back to default settings.

Powered on ps3 with hdmi lead to tv all connections are right was on ps3 yesterday then there was no picture it says unsupported video format on tv but the hdmi lead is the right socket whats happened


It sounds as if the connection has possibly reset itself to a default. Try using the normal RCA connection to start, and if you are able to get a picture, hook up the HDMI cable. You can then simply edit the Video and Sound Connections to accept your HDMI input rather than the RCA input, or you can have it select both, if you have the most recently updated software, and that way, if this ever happens again, you can still have a screen you can see.

RCA's work fine but HDMI gives me no picture


Have you already tried:

Connect both sets of cables (HDMI and RCA's)

Go to SETTINGS, VIDEO SETTINGS, VIDEO OUTPUT SETTINGS

Choose HDMI if that' what you want to use.

Just follow the prompts.

If the tv supports hdmi you should have no problems.

Just make sure you use the RCA ports for video since HDMI doesn't include audio, just video.

Let me know if this works.

Connecting ps3 to hd tv


ok here's what you do. Hook up your ps3 to your hd via hdmi cable then turn the tv on first. Then turn the power on to your ps3 and switch tv to hdmi. wait a while then a screen should come up and you should see and screen where it says an hdmi device is connected do u want to accept theses settings say yes. sometimes the "handshake" doesn't happen properly. If u already know this or have tried this it could be that your tv needs a firmware update, happened to me.
