If the TV was originally set up on an HDTV via HDMI cables you'll have to reset the video/audio outputs on the PS3. When you turn the PS3 on hold your finger down on the button until it beeps a second time, then remove your finger and let the console restart. That should reset the PS3's video output.

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.


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.

How do you get the ps3 to work from a hdmi cable to av3


Follow these steps to reset the video :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 into standby mode (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start up

This resets the video back to standard definition and from here you should be able to set your video up properly.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

No picture thru hdmi but picture thru RCA plugs


I had this exact same problem, or rather my friend did after I borrowed his PS3. You see when I borrowed it, the console configured the HD output to work with my TV, If this happened to you, there is a fix, With the HD cable connected, 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. Once you can then get something on the screen, you can configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to.

My ps3 works fine with a hdmi cable but i took it round a friends the other night and tried the non hdmi cable that came with the console because he does not have a hdi tv and it would not work i got just...


That's mainly because your console is configured with hdmi. You will need to change this setting in your house where you could see the screen.

Hope this helps.

Sound but no picture on PS3 using AV3/4


if it's happening with your ps2 and your ps3 on teh same tv, try it on a different tv. if you're getting sound but no picture, tehn it's something with your cables or your tv. restting the display setting should get your picture back up. make sure the system is in standby and then hold down teh power button. it will turn green and beep, then flash green and beep again. it should brng up a picture. if not, check your component cables, especailly if it works with the original cables.

Ps3 hdmi cable with adapterto tv's rca's


Just use the regular AV cords. They are 480i using an HDMI to this and that isn't going to improve picture quality.
