When the ps3 is on standby, press and hold the power button for around 5 seconds, this should run the optimal screen settings page and auto select the best option for the cables you have fitted. hope this helps

Make sure you change the input on your remote to HDMI. It should be able to scroll through different input devices using the remote for the tv.

No sound game plays fine


Hi.

Check sound settings, but more than anything else check the sound cable. If you use the component (red green and blue) cables or if you use the yellow video cable you will need an external audio connection. The audio cable must be connected to the right input on TV or home theater. Most consoles allow use the red and white audio connection cables (AV), there is also an optical audio cable that can be used.
If you use HDMI you do not necessarily need external audio cable. In that case ensure that HDMI audio is not disabled on TV or console settings. Test using a different HDMI port on TV. Do not forget to turn power off when you connect or disconnect cables. A TV can easily be damaged by disconnecting cables with power on (HDMI carries +5V).

Regards.

Ginko.

No colour


Hi, Definitely a TV issue for me. Changed Wii to another input on TV and resolved situation. Need now to check how to get my TV to recognize colour on AV2 & 3 because I prefer to keep DVD input as AV1!

I had to use the (RCA) video inputs and not the component inputs. These are the ones made for video games. If you want to use the component input (Component cables are Red,White Red, Green, Blue). If you don't have any, you should be able to purchase them at your local electronics store like Radio Shack or Best Buy. Hope this helps, read below:

TV (This is your cable connection or TV; coax)
Component 1 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
Component 2 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
HDMI 1 (HDMI Cable)
HDMI 2 (HDMI Cable)
Video 1 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)
Video 2 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)

When using my hdmi cable the sound does not work but i get video


You don't get an audio from the HDMI cable.

Most people have to hook up the regular cables (white and red cables) just leave the yellow cable unplugged.

Check your audio settings to make sure the output is set to those white and red cables.

Got it?

Have a PS3 connected via HDMI to Panasonic Viera 42". Can't get any volume while playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Volume is good on start up but not during game play. Can you help?


Sony PS3 has an Audio issue with HDMI, the only way to cure this bbuilt in defect is to use a seperate audio cable and use the HDMI for the video, I suggest the audio hook be a optical digital cable, if you don't have one they are avail on ebay very cheap, if you don't have the optical input on the TV then use standard RCA audio A and B cables

Audio/video feedback noise


to solve your problem you need to use hdmi or component high quality cables...if you got a Ps3 to work with high video power...1080p ... I think you are losing time using this console with 480i audio and video low resolution cables...You need to understand that the simple sony A/V cable is made to use with Playstation One. Buy and install a hdmi cable in your Ps3 ...and you you see the huge difference...

All of a sudden, no sound on PS3, great pic though. Using HDMI cable...have checked all connections, reset PS3, etc. Still no sound! Guy from Sony said my HDMI cable(Monster) could be bad?! No sound, but...


I agree with the guy from Sony, the reason for this is the HDMI cable should support the transfer of audio and video over the same cable, if your only getting video over it, the cable could be defective, or its possible that you have another cable in the spot where speakers should go that is over riding the HDMI.

What exactly is the HDMI cable plugged into? Is it direct from TV to PS3?
If you have a stereo set lying around that supports HDMI - try having it run through that.
Is the TV muted? check if you can get sound while watching normal TV channels.
Worst comes to worst, use RCA Plugs remembering that the composite video is (yellow) and stereo audio is (white and red). You don't need to connect the composite video, but connect the stereo audio.


If this did not solve the problem, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you once I can =)

Can i hook up my ps3 thru the cable box? i have an old tv and the audio video is not working.


are you using the HDMI? If you are, the HDMI cable can carry both audio and video signals on it. But, you have to change the settings in your cable menu, and in your tv to detect audio from it.

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.
