    Same problem. How do you reset the ps3 to go from hdmi to rca jacks, or do you change it in settings, before you try it on a different tv ( from hdmi to rca connectors?

Ok, I've seen all the 8million freakin 'hold button 5 seconds' explanations. All the other explanations, but I see NOTHING, nothing at all on my tv screen. My tv is a Jan'04 model, is this...


I understand your frustration - my PS3 went through about a two week phase where it only read disks about a quarter of the time. It sounds like you have gone through a lot of the standard troubleshooting stuff, so I'm just going to ramble some facts and ideas and hopefully something will be able to help you!
- If your television works, there is no reason it wouldn't be able to host the PS3 system. There is a chance that it will not support full 1080p high definition, but the PS3 is still incredible in standard definition.
- Have you used any AUX input devices on your television before to confirm that the red/white/yellow input jacks work? And have you checked any documentation on your television to see if there is some way to switch to AUX input?
- If you've pressed the button for 5 seconds, the PS3 should be using its default graphics mode, and will be in standard definition using the cables, so that shouldn't be the problem
- If the regular cable TV is playing, there is a good chance the TV needs you to ask it to switch to a new mode of input manually - is there a button on the controller labeled "input", "source", or "AUX"?
If none of these are any help, I would recommend going on eBay or heading to the nearest GameStop and buying a new set of connection cables - there is a chance that is the problem, and is a lot cheaper than tossing the PS3 entirely! Good luck, and I hope I was able to help!

Beside the 3 colour wire what else is needed to plug into the tv?


If the three color wire your talking about is the Standard Definition cord that comes with the system out-of-box, then nothing. The RCA cord (three color cord) is enough to hook your PS3 up to almost all T.V.s. You would have to do a bit of searching to find a T.V. so old it didn't have RCA jacks on it, so you have little to worry about. The only other cords you need should also have come with your system when you bought it. The power cord, for the PS3 itself, and the USB cord, for charging your controller.


Now if you have a more modern T.V. with HDMI ports, you can go out and buy an HDMI cord to use. This isn't necessary though, HDMI just gives a higher resolution. You'd have a clearer picture, as well as a slightly wider view, but this unnecessary. It's a nice upgrade, but you don't need it.

Have fun with your PS3, and good luck with your gaming!

How to put playstation where it will show on a regular TV that does not have HD my son took his playstation over his friends who had a HD TV when he brought it back home and hooked it on same TV they had...


With the ps3 already on standby, hold the standby button with the television on the correct channel until the display shows, it will take quite some time. Then change your setup accordingly.

I turn on my ps3 but nothing appears on tv


Maybe u have the wrong cables hooked up if your tv does not have HDMI hook up then you are forced to use the cables that came with it. Make sure that they are correctly hooked up it should be color coded.

No power on PS3


I THINK YOU NEED TO BUY NEW RCA JACKS,, BECAUSE IF THE ELECTRICAL FUSE WENT FROMT HE TV TO RCA JACKS THEN ALL THE CORDS THAT PLUGS TO THE PS2 ARE SHORTED OUT.
