The video output settings have to be set in the ps3 settings it will only show video from the output its set to use.
when the console is off press and hold for 5 seconds the power button to turn it on and it should return to the default resolution and output.

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.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv


The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    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.

    Your ps3 could be in component mode. You will have to hook it back up on component mode, and go to the ps3 menu and change the setting to hdmi.
