The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.
Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.
If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.
If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.
It depends on what sort of television you have and the connections that it has available.
1. The easiest way is to get a VGA cable like the one in the image below if your TV has a VGA input connection. imgsrc="http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/mariolands_13.jpg"alt="VGA"/> Notice this is for video, you will need a double audio jack cable to connect sound, if your TV has this sort of input, otherwise you are better of with option two. imgsrc="http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/mariolands_12.jpg"alt="VGA"/> 2. If your TV doesn't have a VGA connection, you need to get a VGA to RCA adapter like in the image below. Majority of the TVs have a RCA input connection, so if your has one you need to get this adapter and an RCA cable. imgsrc="http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/mariolands_14.jpg"alt="VGA2RCA"/>
Check your notebook for "S-Video / TV out" port that has a 7-pin jack instead of a standard 4-pin S-Video jack. Check your laptop before ordering this adapter.
The newer your computer is, the better chance that it comes with either a RCA Composite or SVIDEO connection. Some notebook computers also have video outputs on them. When buying a new computer always look for the words "TV out" or "video out" in the computer description.
If you only have a VGA connector and don't have an HDTV then your best choice is to buy a newer video card with an S-Video connector. There are other third party solutions out there but the quality is very poor and we do not recommend it.
The VGA port is the connector that's connected to your PC monitor (the TV like device that came with your computer). This connector is usually only usable for VGA Monitors or HDTV setups. If you have an HDTV this will give you the best image possible.
If you have an RCA Composite connector on the back of your computer, then you can use that. You may also need to power down your computer and reboot to be able to get the signal. You need an RCA Composite cable that will be long enough to reach from your computer to your PC. Connect the cable to the back of the computer to the back of your TV SET.
S-Video is superior to that of RCA Composite and will give you a clearer picture. If you have a fairly new TV you should have this connector in the back. You will need to buy an S-VIDEO cable, which you can buy just about anywhere you buy home video products. Connect the cable to your S-Video on the back of your computer and then connect it on the back of your TV
