What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.
Quite often, the
cause of the no picture problem is a simple one - loose cords. Make
sure that the cords are plugged in tightly, both on the TV side and the
PS3 side. This is especially true with the HDMI cable connection on the
PS3. Often, it looks tight, but you still might need to wiggle it a bit
more to seat it correctly. Along the same lines, make sure that the
cords you are using are new and match the connections properly on both
the TV and your console.
2. Wrong Connection Settings
you are using the HDMI/DVI cables and you don't get any picture, make
sure to check your video ouput settings. If your PS3 thinks you are
using standard A/V cords to connect to the set, you'll have issues. The
opposite is true too - if you are using the A/V cords and your PS3
thinks otherwise, you'll have the same no picture problem. Make sure
you settings match the types of cable connectors you are using. 3. Wrong Resolution Setting
is also an easy mistake to make that can result in no picture showing
on your television screen. For example, if you've been using your PS3
with an HDTV and then try to hook it up to a standard definition
television set, you'll encounter this issue. The cure is simple; just
go into your settings and switch back to standard resolution and then
restart your system. The 720p resolution is the default setting and
this should work for most standard definition televisions.
yeah when you change the setting it will give you a few seconds to ok it but if you dont it reverts back to the hdmi btw the composite ones must be attached so go to cousins house hook up hdmi then switch hook up avi cables then ok go home should work fine
I would suggest this (you haven't said what kind of tv you have). I have a 37 in vizio, and a 25 vizio flatscreen HD tv. I had my PS3 hooked up using HDMI first time I tried it I got the little pixels you were talking about...so do this. Sounds stupid but it helped me. The HDMI cable where it plugs into the tv plug and unplug a couple times (three times worked for me. Do the same at the PS3 side of the cable. You want to do this with both of the machines off. Also make sure you have the PS3 configured appropriately for your TV settings...There is a way you can auto setup the screen and sound by shutting the PS3 off and holding your finger on the power button for like 5-10 seconds (it will beep twice) then let your finger off the power button.
When my HDMI cable went bad it would go from having a picture and sound to having no sound and a picture, to no sound and no picture. I thought I had a bad HDMI slot...but it was just a bad HDMI cable
