First, make sure your TV is on the appropriate input for the plugged in HDMI cable. Once this is completed, turn your ps3 on. If the screen comes on and is black, turn the ps3 to standby (red light is on) and hold the front power button until the console beeps a second time. This will usually force the ps3 to recognize the hdmi input and will bring up the menu to configure the AV settings.
It is a known problem with some high def connectors not working properly. The following should be checked before concluding there is a problem 1. Ensure you have your TV tuned to the right output station for as your ps3 is connected.(for example you cannot have your ps3 connected to the second set of av ports on your tv and your tv is on av1, it has to be on av2) 2. Cross-check the functionality of your ps3 using the default av cables that come with it so as to know if your cable or console is faulty. 3. Ensure that you high-def cables are properly connected. If all the above prove abortive, you have to see a repairer to check-up your ps3 or tv
However. I´m inclined to think that you did change the input on your TV. So your problem is another, this is what you have to to to reset:
1. Unplug the HDMI cable from both the TV and PS3. 2. Plug in the AV MULTI OUT cable (the red, white, yellow one provided along with the system) to both your PS3 and TV. 3. Set the TV input to the correct one and turn it on. 4. turn on the PS3 with the front button but DON´T release it, keep your finger on it, until you hear a second beep, thats when you release the button, the PS3 will start to identify what it´s connected to and will display it on your TV.
Cables are sometimes expensive for a reason: They offer more or less sheilding from grounds of various sources, including your own body.
Whatever cables you are using are allowing a 60 Hz hum to interfere with your enjoyment of your unit.
Since the cables have to be in close proximity with both your body and the back of the unit, which emits a 60Hz signal, from your house wiring, which becomes the humming noise you experience, the AV cables should be heavily sheilded so as to protect the signal from your MP3 player from interference by the 60Hz signal to increase the signal to noise ratio and thereby reduce your hum.
So, shop for the cables with the least loss and the highest signal to noise ratio. And enjoy!
I think that you should have a button on the remote which lets you switch to the auxilliary connection of the TV (it won't switch automatically). Try putting it on AV1 AV2 or AUX or such modes you have to refer to your TV manual to see how to switch exactly to the Video Line in Connection.
You need to connect the PS3 to the television with both connectors (HDMI and Component). Then in the display settings change it from HDMI to component and during the 30 seconds that the screen goes black you need to disconnect your HDMI cable from your playstation. Then switch to the input that the component cable is connected to on your television (ie. AV1, AV2, etc). From here you will see the countdown for the test and you can continue with these settings.
try using the composite cables as well.....with your tv set to the composite input go back into the settings and select the HDMI output switch your tv's input back to your HDMI input and remove the composite cables....it should work fine...
