Playstation 3 works fine useing the av hook up but won;t work with hdmi cable hook up.


First, make sure your TV is on the appropriate input for the plugged in HDMI cable. Once this is completed, turn your ps3 on. If the screen comes on and is black, turn the ps3 to standby (red light is on) and hold the front power button until the console beeps a second time. This will usually force the ps3 to recognize the hdmi input and will bring up the menu to configure the AV settings.

Hi, have had bedroom decorated and playstation had to be disconnected for few days,, now plugged back in and not playing a dvd or a game,,,any ideas?? the lights come on ok but no picture on screen,, tv...


double check all your cords and that they are hooked up tightly and correctly.

if that fails try hooking it up using the AUX (yellow,white,red) cord. It could have been reset which means if you were using a HDMI output it was set back to default AUX.

and finally try using a different HDMI cord, everything goes bad eventually

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.


What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.

The picture on my t.v when i turn on my ps3 goes black and white with a section of it at the top gone a fuzzy green colour. how do i get rid of this and put colour back on the screen


First of all hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds. YOu should hear a couple of beeps. That is resetting the video to the ps3. Power it back up. If you have it hooked up through hdmi try the other av cordes it came with. ALso try unpluging and plugging back in the av cords. If that does not work then I dont know.

I made a mistake and had my av and hdmi cords pluged into my tv and ps3 at the same time. The screen turned red. I got scared and had put my finger over the power button for five seconds now I have a blank...


Turn the system off then turn it back on and keep holding the power button , when you hear the system beep let go watch the light blink or look for any changes on the screen display, if no change in screen yet turn off and back on again. If no change i would advice that you get it contact with Sony and consider getting a replacement.

Ps3 wont show up on tv


Hey i just posted i have the same problem as you do but then I checked the SONY PS3 website and it solved my problem. Try resetting your video output. I'll paste what it says on the PS3 website but if that doesn't solve your problem go to the website. They have a bunch of troubleshooting solutions for this problem...



If while manually changing the Video Output Settings, the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, you may need to perform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.

  1. Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
  2. Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.
  3. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  4. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).
