Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Turns On, No Video or Audio

I've been using and HDMI cable for my ps3 since i've had it (a month) and one time I tried using it at a different HD tv and it didn't work, than i just switched to the other HDMI port and it worked. Once again i tried to use this tv later, and both ports say no signal. So I took it to the HD tv in my living room instead and it didn't work, but i left it on for about 10 minutes and at one point in time it did start playing the preview to a movie because I had a pineapple express i there, but then stopped right after. So what is wrong with this?

My first generation ps3 (20g) will not display image on tv while trying it with hdmi and av cables. I;ve tried holding down the power button for the 10 sec and all that, but It wont display image, although...


Have you tried it on a different TV, you need to narrow down weather it is the PS3 or the TV. If it doesn't work on another TV the PS3 GFX card will be faulty.
If you normally use HDMI try and use a different cable or try it on a friends (borrow one) just to prove yours is good.

Let meknowhow you get on. Not sure you can replace the RSX GFX in the gen 1.

Good Luck

PS3 No signal to the TV


To solve this, when the ps3 is in standby (solid red light), just hold the power button. It should beep on, then beep again in about 5 seconds. This will automatically search for the optimal audio video output. if if beeps on then turns off, just try again, it takes 1 or 2 tries sometimes. the reason this is happening is because your ps3 is set to one AV output, ex. composite(red yellow white), HDMI, and then you changed the cable to a different one. another way to fix it is plug both cables, HDMI and composite, into the tv and ps3, then go to settings and change the output to the desired one.

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


The problem is with your PS3 itself.
If it's still under warranty, take it back.

Ps3 plays audio but does not show image on tv


Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.

But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.

My ps3 has no picture or sound...


if there's absolutely nothing on the TV screen, then most probably the video output is different then the cables you are using (eg: video output HD and you are using AV cables). Are you sure your TV is set correctly? like using HD cable you have to choose HDMI or AV cable choose AV. Anyway, When the PS3 is on, turn it off by pressing and holding the power button on the front (so the light turns red) you will hear beep sound ( I can't remember how many but not once). This should reset the Video output to AV. Swithch to AV cables (if you're using HD). Usually if the system is set to AV output and you switch to HDMI cables, the system recognizes that and swithches to HD output. But if it's set to HD output and you are using AV cables, it doesn't switch back; that is what my system does.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

Having trouble playing my Ps3 on a non HD tv after already using it on a HD tv


Hey bro try going down to circuit city, best buy and get the HDMI cord that converts to a Component cable on the opposite end. You can do this as long as the back of the non H/D tv has the Component Inputs on the back of the TV. If that does not work get the HDMI cable that converts on the opposite end to a S Video signal and connect that end to the S Video input on the back of your tv. I have seen these cables at circuit city in the playstation section. Again on one end of the cable it has your HDMI input to connect to your ps3 and on the opposite end of the cable it has the S video plug to run to the back of your tv and plug it into the S Video input. Same thing can be said for the HDMI on one end of the cable and the Component cables on the opposite end to run to the back of your tv. This will work if you find those cables. Good Luck.
