Just bought a used ps3 and when I hooked it up to my sd tv via av it worked fine, but then when I went to hook up t up to my hdtv via av also it will not display any video or audio.


Make sure you are on the correct input, try purchasing component cables and using them(Has a red green and blue plug for video and red white plug for audio) make sure the AV on the TV works try plugging something else into it like a DVD Player make sure you switch your video setting to the correct format.

No this didnt help at all, my samsung tv still turns out black and white, im not using a HDM1 cable im just trying to get the normal tv to work, i have noticed the tv only has the green, blue, and red...


As long as you can see that those ports on the back of you TV say input and not output then your compsit color code is White=audio, Red=audio, Yellow=video. It should work the green, blue, and red is just another type of component use. Good Luck!

My playstation3 will turn on looks like it is working but my tv screen is blank nothing comes up


Hi,

Try to reset the video settings on the PS3 and also make sure the cables are all attached and that you have the TV on the correct input source.

Turn the PS3 off so the red light is on. Hold down the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. Release the power button and press it again.
That should have reset the video settings so you will be able to set the video settings again on the other TV and access the PS3 menu to set it up.


If there is anything else please post back.



Regards.

I have a ps3 60g but i dont have no hd cord for it so am using it on a normal tv. but i cant see no video but am hearing audio on it, could someone please help me!!!!


Ok you need to reset the definition back to standard. Follow these steps :-

1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

3. Wait for the display to initialize.

Hope this helps

I hooked hdmi to tv. i went thru ps3 settings for video n audio n swithch audio to the red n white output. now i have sound thru surround sound but my video is flickering n i cant c so i can undo it


Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the AV Multi Out port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.

2. 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.


3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system 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).

PS3 went from a "snowy" screen to a black screen. HELP PLEASE!!


hi..
Two or more things, first make sure you have your audio vidio cables correct

Yellow= Video
Red= Audio right
White Audio left

Also make sure that the tv matches the input your cables are connected into. I would make sure the restart the PS3 to make sure the video is good (after checking the tv input)

!st Gen Playstation 3 no video or audio


Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.
Here is the simplest way to reset the defaults and be sure you did it correctly.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. 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. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

When you turn on the PS3 one beep is good, two beeps are bad. Two beeps will require a service call to support.

Common causes for this are:
  • Faulty connections, the cables are not seated properly or damaged.
  • Faulty television, you will need to test the input jack with another device such as a vcr or dvd player
  • The output selector in the PS3 is set to the wrong output. HDMI / Component / Composite. If you have mistakenly changed the output in the menu from HDMI (one cable) to the Compsite (Red yellow white cables) or vice versus the PS3 is attempting to output to the other connection.
While the system is off, hold down the power button until it turn on and keep holding it until it beeps and turns off again.

This will reset the PS3 to the defaults settings, the default connection will be RCA Composite so make sure you have the red yellow white cables connected to your tv which came with the system.
