Try this. hookup your ps3 to tv and when it is on standby, press and hold the power button for over 5 seconds, this runs the optimal settings page and auto selects the best option for the cables you have fitted, hope this helps

The playstation is connected to the tv. I can hear the sound but there is no picture.


Have you changed the connection you have the PS3 hooked up to the TV with? If so, instead of pushing the PS button on the controller to turn the console on, push and hold the power button on the console for a few seconds. You should get picture shortly after. This resets the PS3's output settings and makes it detect the type of connection you are using.

My ps3 will turn on but wont show a picture on the tv or give sound


Reset the video settings by turning on the ps with only the power cable plugged in, when turning on continue to hold the power button until you hear a second set of beeps then turn off the console.
Boot up the ps and plug in your av/hdmi cable and you should have picture and sound.

It's hooked up with HDMI,but all of a sudden can't get any picture. i can hear the sound. No luck when i hooked it up with rca wires either.


Check your connections to the TV itself to make sure they are properly hooked up. Once this is done, turn off your PS3 completely. Turn the PS3 back on using the touch button on the front, BUT keep your finger on the button until you see something on your screen. This will reset your video settings back to 480i which will work on any tv/monitor and should allow it to auto detect the HDMI option again.

If this doesn't work, you may want to make sure that your HDMI/AV/COMPOSITE settings and inputs are working correctly on your tv. You might want to try and plug something else in for full testing purposes if the above does not fix your issue.

Ps3


Hook up your PS3 using reglar A/V cables.

Then go ahead and turn off the the PS3. Then hold down the power button on the front and as your doing that turn on the PS3 from the back and make sure your holding down the power button on the front for 5 seconds.

At this point it should reset the setting to factory default and you'll get video. At this point you can go change the output to HDMI and then reboot the PS3 and you''ll get video thru that again.

No video or sound


Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.

Thanks,
Ced

Sound but no picture


Hook up the composite cables that come with the unit. Turn the TV on to the correct input. Turn the PS3 on using the power button on the unit. When you press the button continue holding the button until you hear a second beep....about five seconds. That should set the PS3 back to the factory output. If that corrects the problem you can set the PS3 to use whichever cable you want via the XMB.

Ps3 reset


turn the PS3 off. hold the power button for at least 5 seconds or until you hear another beep.
This should reset all your ps3's settings.  If you have an HDMI connection, wait for a couple of seconds so that the PS3 recognizes and negotiates the right video output for your TV.
