Nah your setting are good. What you do is turn off your console. Now turn it back on and hold the on button for three seconds it should beep. You should be sweet after this. It is just a stupid PS3 fault.

If this dosent work let me know if it does please leave feedback

I tried to use my PS3 on a new tv (Sony Bravia) with an HDMI cable. After seeing the delay, I decided to reconnect my PS3 back to an old tv using the regular A/V cables (the red, yellow, white ones) but...


This happens when you change the output settings to HD, then switch back to regular a/v because the tv dosen't recognize the signal. Thankfully there is an easy fix. Just turn the PS3 system on using the power button on the front and continue to hold it until you hear a second "beep" sound from the system. then picture should beging to work again.

PS3 used to work on TV in bedroom and on TV in lounge, now it won't work on TV in bedroom


I believe your Lounge TV is an HDTV and your Bedroom TV isn't, This is what you have to do:
1. Connect it to
your Lounge TV with an HDMI cable and a red/white/yellow cable.
2. Turn it on and go to the display settings and switch it to the composite cable setting.
3. Change your TV channel where you would see the red/white/yellow cable and accept it that way.
4. You should be all set. Take it to the regular TV and connect it with the red/white/yellow cable.
cheers :)

I borrowed my brother-in-law's ps3 while he was away for a few weeks. it worked fine on my tv but when he got back, it didn't work on his. i have an HDTV but he has a regular one. i've looked for answers...


Alright so this is what you have to do.
1. Connect it to your HDTV with the HDMI cable and the red/white/yellow cable.
2. Turn it on and go to the display settings and switch it to the composite cable setting.
3. Change your TV channel where you would see the red/white/yellow cable and accept it that way.
4. You should be all set. Take it to the regular TV and connect it with the red/white/yellow cable.

I have a ps3 60gb capatible for the ps2 I have it hooked up to the TV but its not showing anything on the TV I have the High Def connectors for the TV


It is a known problem with some high def connectors not working properly. The following should be checked before concluding there is a problem
1. Ensure you have your TV tuned to the right output station for as your ps3 is connected.(for example you cannot have your ps3 connected to the second set of av ports on your tv and your tv is on av1, it has to be on av2)
2. Cross-check the functionality of your ps3 using the default av cables that come with it so as to know if your cable or console is faulty.
3. Ensure that you high-def cables are properly connected.
If all the above prove abortive, you have to see a repairer to check-up your ps3 or tv

I bought a Nintendo Wii off of a guy and I didn't realize when I did that it came with Hi-Def RCAs. My TV only has a standard RCA hookup. I was told that I could still use the Hi-Def RCAs but what colors...


Those are not High Def RCAs.

The cables you received are called "component" when the picture is broken down to its component colors, red, green, and blue.

When compared to "composite" cables (RCA), the yellow is all the components in one, which is the video cable. The other red and white are audio.

Your component should be RGB, Red & White (audios)

What you need to do is buy a composite cable for the Wii, which shouldn't cost that much--usually under $10 bucks. Save the component cables for when you get a new TV since those are the more expensive of the two!

Have xbox 360....got used,no instruct. book,was hooked to flat screen tv, no longer have flat screen tv, have regular tv hook up game comsole to tv, wont work.....why


If it was hooked to a flat screen it was most likely on high def. There is a switch on the connection to the tv to make it work on a regular defination tv. Just slide the switch over to regular and it should work. Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 sound but no picture can any one help


If you've just bought your xbox 360, then you probably haven't got a HDMI cable.

Which I think you could need.

HDTV Problem


there shouldnt be a problem with the cable, if you use the component leads then you will not need to use the s video cable for video incase that is what you are doing, component only uses 5 connectors and the switch should be set at HDTV not tv and the tv set at component Use the following colours into your tv:- Green, Blue, Red and the audio red and white, you do not need the yellow or the s video plugs. Then select the 1080i when in the component setings on your tv and do the same in the dashboard settings
