No signal from ps3 to TV

Just bought Ps3...tried to get the HDMI cable to work to no avail. RCA cables worked at one point. I gave up on HDMI and settled for RCA but now the TV says it isn't even getting a signal on the regular video input.

help.

    I got it fixed now. The TV recognizes the HDMI signal but it is all chopped up with static screens and brief portions of the XMB. Still having issues though...i have a Sanyo 26 inch LCD TV which is supposed to be 720pi 16:9 but for some reason the ps3 only puts out at 480pi...when I try to switch it to 720 it says there is no signal...pretty major bummer. Lol. only works in Standard Resolution even though the tv is HD

There is a hard reset in your manual...do what that says with the HDMI plugged in and it will automatically find that signal.

Ps3 turns on but no signal on tv


Hi There,
Is the TV set for the correct input?
I assume you are using HDMI?
If all settings and input selections are correct then I will have to say that either the HDMI cable is faulty, or the HDMI port on either the TV or PS3 could be faulty.
Check if PS3 can work on another TV with the HDMI cable.
Check if another Device can work on that TV with the HDMI cable.
Try another HDMI cable.
From this, you should be able to determine where the issue is sitting.
Hope this helps!

Why will my ps3 not workwhen conected via multi-av cable to the RCA jacks?it does work conected to a hd tv via hdmi


When you use an HDMI cable with your PS3, the system is outputting the signal in a digital format. You need to tell it to switch back to displaying in an analog format to use the RCA jacks, otherwise it won't work. To do this, turn off your PS3. Then, once it's off, press and hold down the power button on the system. After a few seconds, it will beep and reset the output signal back to analog. Just make sure only your RCA cables are plugged in when you do this. Hope this helps!

Ps3 will not display on the tv


hold reset button until the game reset, use the rca cable and reconfigure the ps3. after you reset the setup it will work with the rca video cable, if you want to use hdmi, then reconfigure the ps3 to hdmi, from there it will send signal to hdmi not rca anymore.

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it


Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".


If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.

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

PS3 not working on 42'' JVC via HDMI cable port


I have the PS3 and this TV and it works....Try this.

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect HDMI from TV to PS3
3. Select the correct HDMI input on the TV for the PS3(important)
4.Turn OFF PS3 if it is ON.
5. hold [I/O] Power button on PS3
6. Wait about 5 second and you should get the "HDMI Detected" or some similar message.
7. Configure the HDMI output for the PS3

Also, If you set the PS3 to "auto" for hdmi, it may set the resolution to 1080i. You may want to deselect everthing but the 1080P.

Hdmi connection doesnt work on ps3


By you saying that you have a new cable & tv, I assume you had the console conected tru composite before (red, white & yellow rca cable). This is what you need to do: Connect the PS3 to the tv with HDMI cable only, do not use the composite cable at the same time, reset your PS3 by pressing and holding the power button, when the power is off, for about 7 to 10 secconds, it would cicle from power off, on, then off again, it would also give you 2 sets of beeps, after the power is off, turn your tv on, make sure you select HDMI input on it, then turn your PS3 on, the console would set itself to the best resolution available on your tv. Give it a try!
