Ps3 not wworking on regular TV after hdmi cable was used.


sounds like you have the ps3 set up in HD video display settings?

If this is the case hook it up to the regular tv and when you turn the power on continue to hold down the power button til it beeps this restores the video to default settings sometimes it takes a 2nd power down and power up holding it down to work.

If this doesnt solve please give more details

Doesn't recognize non HD TV


hook your PS3 to the tv with the regular cord, put the tv on the channel you want. with the PS3 off but switch in on press and hold the power button until it beeps twice then release. you can also do this the other way round (SD to HD).

I have both an HDTV and a regular tv. When I set up the ps3, I told it to hook up with the HDMI cable. I want to move the ps3 to the regular tv, and the video and audio won't appear on my regular tv.


First add the basic wires to the old tv too. Then go to the screen options while using the hdmi on your hdtv and set it to the normal non-hd screen mode. Then it should appear on your regular tv

PS3 Video Connection--Lines on TV


this may be due to the fact that your ps3 will be set up to hd. go into video settings when you switch it on and this should solve the problem. i had similar problems and bought a hdtv until someone pointed this out to me. however once you have experienced ps3 in hd you will not go back!!! hope this helps

PS3 going back to normal tv after being on a hd tv.


Shut down your PS3 then restart by pressing and holding the power button.This will reset your PS3 to its most basic 480p graphics mode so you'll be able to see enough to choose RGB SCART, component, HDMI or whatever from here.

How do i reset all my settings for my PS3? I've been using an HD cable for my video/audio output and when i switch to the regular cables the screen just stays blank and I can't get to the menu. How do i...


1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.
