I have my ps3 plugged in but powered off so just a red light is on.i push power button light turns green I hear fan come on and everything sounds normal but it has no picture at all.it takes cd no pro


Rudy, are you connecting to the TV with HDMI, or RCA cords? HDMI carries both picture and sound thru 1 cord, whereas RCA splits it to YELLOW RED and WHITE. The HDMI connection is automatically detected when connected to your TV. It will say"HDMI is detected, do you want to use these settings?" RCA is not automatic, and is prone for the video(YELLOW) cord to develope a bad connection. I wouls duggest first replacing the cord. They are inexpencive, and the fastest way to check your issue. I am going to include a link to a youtube video that will guide you through the steps on how to reset your video settings on your system.

If you would like both video and audio to output through the HDMI cord, make sure to go into the PS3's video settings and select HDMI output there, and also go into the audio output settings and select HDMI. This should make the audio come out of the TV's speakers.

If you're using separate speakers, such as a surround sound system, use a different audio output (such as the red and white component cords) and plug those directly into your sound system.

1080i only works with component cables and wont go to 1080p but your hdmi will set it back to 1080i and then switch back to the component cables.

HDMI cable vs non


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings.
I use this method to revert from HDMI 1080p to Composite 576p, without having to swap cables and change settings.

My hdmi cable only transfers sound and no video


it might be because your ps3 is set to display video output higher than the tv is capable of producing. This happened to me when i brought my ps3 home to play on my tv at home. i previously had it set at 1080i output, but my tv at my house was only capable of producing 720p so i got the same problem as you. You can cut the ps3 on, then hold down the on button until you hear a second beep. this will return your video setting to normal (480i) and you can see if you have picture then.
