Playstation 3 works fine useing the av hook up but won;t work with hdmi cable hook up.


First, make sure your TV is on the appropriate input for the plugged in HDMI cable. Once this is completed, turn your ps3 on. If the screen comes on and is black, turn the ps3 to standby (red light is on) and hold the front power button until the console beeps a second time. This will usually force the ps3 to recognize the hdmi input and will bring up the menu to configure the AV settings.

This is what happen my regular Ps3 av jacks that came with the ps3 broke so i went to game stop and got some new ones but i accidently got hdmi jacks then i used those for a day and the color was in black...


you have to do the video reset once you use HDMI the ps3 stays in HDMI mode till you do video reset

to do video reset:

when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) press and hold the power button till you hear the second beep then release and that resets the video.

hold power button............beep..............beep.......release, done.
