No picture comes through - the PS3 is working as i can hear audio

I connected my PS3 via HD, now there is no picture coming through but i can hear the audio and the games loading up.

On top of this the PS3 won't work with the scart cable now.

As i can't view anything i can't check the picture settings.

Can anyone help?

How come on my Elgato Game capture HD for mac i can never get audio comming through my computer on any system


1) Make sure your game console is set to output audio via the cables you are using.

Solution: The PlayStation 3 (PS3), Xbox 360, and other game consoles have various options for audio output. Make sure you have selected the right audio output option for Elgato Game Capture HD to use.

When using the PS3 with Elgato Game Capture HD, make sure you set the Audio Output settings to Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI

You can refer to this article for more details:

http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/audiooutput.html

When using the Xbox 360, you can refer to this article:

http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/audio-video-setup-and-use/configure-audio-settings

For an HDMI connection with your Xbox 360, try these settings:

1) Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
2) Go to Settings and select System.
3) Select Console Settings, and then select Audio.
4) Select Digital Output, and then select Digital Stereo My Elgato Game Capture HD doesn

Connect ps3 to a non HD tv and picture only black and white?


Are you connecting it to a new SD tv after having been connected to an HD set? You can force the system to reset the video resolution settings by pressing and holding the On/Off button after the system has already turned on. I believe it is ~5-10sec. You will hear another beep after the initial startup beep. This will reset video setting to default and go through the resolution setup wizard again.

However, it is also possible that you are trying to connect a component cable to a composite tv. They are VERY different signals even though the cables fit interchangeably. If you use the Green component cable for video on a composite tv you will only see a grayscale image of the picture. This is most likely your issue. If this is the case you will need to buy a composite cable for the PS3 (the PS2 one is the exact same as the PS3 one.)

FYI Component cable has Red, Green, & Blue cables. Composite has Yellow (Video), White (Left Audio), Red (Right Audio). Both are normal RCA type plugs and will fit in each others plugs, but the signals are VERY different.

Connect PS3 to Sony Trinitron. We connected with the PS3 provided AV Cable to the front Audio/Video jacks but cannot get a picture on the TV screen. Not sure what we are doing wrong.


easy breezy fix, you have to force the ps3 to acknowledge that tv is not hdmi, it is just hd. press and hold power button for 5 seconds on ps3 until you hear 2nd beep and let go. settings will come up for ps3, switch to hd. done

How would i know if my HDMI ports are working or not?? Tried to connect a PS3 to it but nothing. Thought it may have been the cable so checked someones that i know is working and still nothing. Checked...


As you already checked PS3 and HDMI cable,
select HDMI input in TV and connect PS3 via HDMI cable. TV should show PS3 picture.
And if still no joy then HDMI input port in TV is bad and need to replace input board/ main board.

Connecting ps3 to hd tv


ok here's what you do. Hook up your ps3 to your hd via hdmi cable then turn the tv on first. Then turn the power on to your ps3 and switch tv to hdmi. wait a while then a screen should come up and you should see and screen where it says an hdmi device is connected do u want to accept theses settings say yes. sometimes the "handshake" doesn't happen properly. If u already know this or have tried this it could be that your tv needs a firmware update, happened to me.

Samsung lcd ln46a550pf3 no sound from hdtv reciever


ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.
