PS3 Video Connection--Lines on TV

Hello! I just got a brand new PS3, 80GB, and I hooked it up using the regular AV Controller. The TV I hooked it up to is not an HD or flatscreen TV, but is probably only 4-8 years old. It is a JVS. When I hook up the PS3 to any of the AV connections, the PS3 screen has a series of white interference lines that run up and down the screen. This does not occur with any other device hooked up to the TV (i.e. cable and a DVD player).

Is this a problem with the PS3, or the wires? Or is it possibly a compatability problem? I have not yet tried to hook up the PS3 to an HDTV that is also in my house to see if that fixes the problem. Should I try that? Like I said, the PS3 was bought brand new, and this was the first time I hooked it up, and I made sure that all of the connectors were secure. I also tried it in multiple inputs, and still the same effect.

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

SOURCE: No HDTV

Hi there. There might be some solution out there that would work for you, KboxMod. Here it is : To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, remove any discs from the disc tray. Turn the console off and turn it back on. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings, and then automatically restarts the console. Note: If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller will have the upper-left quadrant light illuminated. Try it a few times, some say it took a few retries to get it working. It might just need a reset of those video settings. Hope that helps, cheebster.

Put ps3 on new tv does not pick up lead as we used hdmi on old tv


If possible, hook the PS3 to the old TV, and then select the AV Cable option for both video and sound. Then hook it to the new TV, which should show the display at 480p. From there, you can adjust the settings to whatever you would like.

What to do with my Ps3??


Your PS3 auto-adjusted to the HDMI Input cable, so you will need to find somewhere that you can either get an HDMI cable or a HDMI TV, so you can view the screen. Then you can hook up the A/V jacks and go to your Videa and Audio Output Settings and choose them, disabling the HDMI hookup selected. Then you'll be back in business!

Powers on but nothing happens


It happened to me too. When you plug in your av cables and are ready to play, follow these steps. With your PS3 off (Red light on), Press and hold the power button on your console. (Do not use the controller to turn it on.) Keep holding the button until you hear a second beep. (it takes about 2 to 3 seconds.) You will notice your screen flickers, then your PS3 will show up on the tv. All you did was reset the PS3 display settings. You can always go back to HDMI or AV cables. Have Fun.

Connecting ps3 to a standard tv


Hello

I think that you should have a button on the remote which lets you switch to the auxilliary connection of the TV (it won't switch automatically). Try putting it on AV1 AV2 or AUX or such modes you have to refer to your TV manual to see how to switch exactly to the Video Line in Connection.

This should solve your problem :)

Cheers :)

Hello can you help with this error!


When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.

Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.

Hope this helps.
