When you hooked up the HDMI did you go into display settings and change all the PS3 settings to HDMI instead of AVI? I thought my HDMI wasnt working, just a blank screen but I could hear the sound, then it hit me..... change the video and display settings to HDMI and poof, there was the pic. lol

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.


What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.

Why doesnt my tv recieve signal from my ps3


Your tv might not receive a signal for a variety of reason.

a. You have the RCA (yellow,white,red) cables plugged in the wrong way
b. Your ps3 hasn't recognized your video due to using an hdmi cable and switching around with the settings on your ps3.
c. you have changed the video settings on your ps3 and is now set to the wrong video output.
d. the cables have become defective and you need to purchase a new one.
e. the ps3 has malfunctioned and wont take video anymore.
f. the tv input is set wrong. make sure all RCA cables are found in "video output", all hdmi cables are found in "HDMI", and all VGA cables are found under "PC".

Your guess on the problem is as good as mine.

I hope everything goes better for you : )

In a hotel with a tv that only has coaxial input. bought a rf modulator video converter from rca to coaxial. Was running hdmi at home. current set up does not work? console should automatically switch to...


Unfortunately it does not automatically switch. Turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on any TV or monitor. You can then configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to. You'll have to do the same thing when you take it back to your original location.

My ps3 wont work with my hd/mi cable, i get a blank screen, but it does work with the rca jacks?


What you need to do is connect it from both the red/white/yellow cable and your HDMI. Go to your video input on your TV to where you can see the display. Go to settings - Display settings, and switch your input display from composite to HDMI. Your screen will go blank. Once blank, turn your TV to your HDMI input and when you see the picture, save settings and completely unplug the composite cable. You should be good to go.

If this helps, please give me a 4thumbs up!

Respectfully,

Don

Unit is turning on but no picture. just brought new


Trouble shoot: Make sure cables are in tight. and corrected to the correct tv input Test your HDMI cable on another device. (is it working) Make sure your TV is set to the correct input. Try another device on your TV's HDMI input.(working?) Try anolog hookup instead of HDMI (is that working)

Ps3 won't transmit on tv, tv works ps3 is running, checked all cords


You need to check and make sure that you are trying to view the PS3's output on the proper channel or input on your TV. If you need to scroll through every channel and input.

If that doesn't work try replacing the A/V or HDMI cables. If it still doesn't work you may need to send it to Sony and have it replaced. The video output section of the console may be bad or not functioning correctly.

If you have a friend with a PS3 try to see if they will bring their's over and let you test it out. If their PS3 won't display then it's something wrong with the wires or the TV.

try connecting A/V rca cable first. go to ur diplay settings and then to video output settings in it select av multi. don't use HDMI settings let it automatically ask u when u plug in hdmi cable. Then switch to HDMI cable. I had a problem like this before with a ps3 that i had bought used. hdmi was set up and it took forever to set it up with rca cords. took many times power on and offs and unplugging video cords for it to reset. . not sure. Now when u plug in your hdmi on any tv it should automatically set up. and you have settings for a/v as backup. the other thing is it could be the just the port or cable.

Av connections not giving signal to tv


you have to manually change the output in the settings menu back to ANALOG Using an HDMI TV or monitor 1st, when you select RCA, or AV output and restart, it will work, but when you switch back, you have to change it (back to HDMI output) on the analog monitor, or use analog TV inputs, then reboot PS3 and connect HDMI.
I do not know why Sony did not make this switch automatic and self scanning on boot, but alas I have had the same issue, so I know this is your problem, not the AV cables.

Please give a fixya rating if you find this solves your problem, Thanks for the question

Hdmi


I can't be exactly sure without more information, but it sounds like you ps3 is outputting from another port. My ps3 originally was outputting from the component/composite cable port so in order to use the hdmi output I had to do a soft reset. That makes the ps3 sense what cable is plugged into it and automatically output through that port instead of using whatever is the saved setting.

With your ps3 turned on hold down the power button for a few second until it beeps and flashes 3 times (should be about 5 seconds). You might have to try it a few times to get it to work, but you should get picture and be able to adjust the settings on the ps3.
