Please try this procedure to connect the PS3 to TV..
The PS3 has a Blu-ray drive that can be
used not only for playing games but also for watching high-definition
movies. The best way to connect a PS3 to a high-definition viewing
device such as a video projector is through the PS3's high-definition
multimedia interface (HDMI) output. The HDMI connection can transmit up
to 1080p high-definition from the PS3 to the video projector using a
single cable. Attaching and setting up the HDMI cable will only take a
few minutes and will let you watch high-definition video from the PS3 on
the video projector.
Attach one end of the HDMI cable
to the HDMI output connector of the PS3. Turn the HDMI cable around if
it does not slip right into the HDMI output, because the HDMI cable can
only fit into an HDMI connector one way.
Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input connector
that is on the video projector. Make sure both sides of the HDMI cable
is securely pushed into the connectors of the PS3 and of the video
projector. Turn on the video projector. Press the "Menu" button on the
video projector's remote. Navigate to the "Sources" setting on the video
projector's Menu. Select "HDMI" from the "Sources" setting. Press the
"Menu" button on the remote control again to exit the Menu.
Adjusting the PS3
Turn on the PS3. Wait for the
"Home" menu to appear on the video projector, although the quality of
the video seen from the video projector will be muddied and dark.
Navigate from the "Home" menu to the "Systems" icon using the game
controller and select the "Display Settings" tab. Choose "Video Output
Settings" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the
right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the
Choose "HDMI" from the list presented in the screen that appears.
Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to
move to the next screen. Choose "Automatic" from the list presented in
the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on
the game controller to move to the "Confirmation" screen. Press the "X"
button on the game controller to make the settings active. Return to the
PS3's "Home" menu.
Watching the PS3
Insert a Blu-ray disc into the
slot at the front of the PS3. Wait as the Blu-ray disc begins to play
the video content on the video projector from the PS3 through the HDMI
Please don't forget to rate my answer...I really appreciate any ratings you done..
first you have to double check if all the cables are well plugged, both to the console and the TV.are you using an hdmi cable? if so, please try to switch to the hdmi channel on your tv, using the tv remote. there's a button on it that is used to cycle the external video inputs, you just have to locate it and press few times until you'll see the PS3 image on the screen.
Ive had the same problem with mine. I have a universal remote and a blu ray player separately installed on my tv. The only way i was able to play the ps3 without calling geek squad to reconfigure my tv was to unplug the blu ray and put the ps3 in its spot and push watch bluray. It worked great.
how is it connected to the tv? does your tv auto switch channels? if not try manually switching inputs with your tv remote (ext1, ext2, scart, hdmi etc etc) you say you connected to tv put in a disc right away? did you set up your console first? (of course point one about the display needs to be resolved before set-up can take place)
example if you are connected to your tv with an HDMI cable and your tv does not detect and then switch to your HDMI input.. use tv remote and repeatadly press button (maybe called source on your remote maybe something else) untill the input is switched to HDMI
ok what channel is it on if it is an old tv put it on channel 3 if not try pressing input on your remote it will say "video 1" "video 2" then "front' then normal tv it should work on one of the settings
first have the video recorder connected to the tv correctly,either coax out, red.white,yellow out, componant out or hdmi.[ see on back of the unit & the tv which connection you used.input selector is also known as video/source/line in or aux, sometimes even game. if there no such button on your remote, scroll down from channel 2 and you should be in some aux input.have the dvd playing,then you should see the video when you get to the right input.
