I by mistake from the menu I pressed the hdmi botton. It went blank and I can't get a picture. What can I do?


If you are changing cables or cannot see an image on the screen, you may need to reset the video output to default settings. To reset the video output:
  1. While the PS3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the PS3 beeps a second time (approximately 5 seconds), then release it.
  2. The PS3 will power up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

I have just brought ps3 and when i plug the leads into the tv ie red white and yellow leads i can not find the channel on my tv i have tried other tvs and same thing so i done away with the lead and just...


Hi, try not using the hdmi lead and plug the other lead back into the ps3 the normal av lead with the 3 color wires, now plug it into your telly now switch the ps3 on at the back so the red light is on at the front, now hold down the one button and it will bleep once then bleep twice and keep holding it down till it switches back off

so basically you switch it on at the back then press and hold down the on button until the ps3 turns itself back off, now what this does is reset the video mode so its not set to hdmi settings, now press the on button again and wait for it to come on if you still dont have picture on the telly make sure the video lead is fitted correctly and then get the telly remote and find one of the following buttons
av
source
input
or a rectangle with an arrow facing to the right.

once you have found this button make sure the ps3 is on and then press this button on the tv remote, you may need to press it more than once depending on how many inputs the telly has on it.

now when you press the button on the tv remote press it once then wait 5 sec before pressing it again just to give it chance to pick the signal up.

hopefully now you have the ps3 working through the normal av lead

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Hi I have playstion 3 slim and when i turn it on it powers up but there is no picture and it sounds like the machine is not working like normal like


Hi,

Have you set the video mode on the machine or plugged it up to a different TV? if so try this >>>

Make sure all leads are connected to the TV.

Next, turn the PS3 off so the red light is on. Hold down the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. Release the power button and press it again.
That should have reset the video settings so you will be able to set the video settings again and access the PS3 menu.

Post back if you get no luck.




Regards.

I hooked hdmi to tv. i went thru ps3 settings for video n audio n swithch audio to the red n white output. now i have sound thru surround sound but my video is flickering n i cant c so i can undo it


Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the AV Multi Out port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.

2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the ON/OFF button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.


3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

My ps3 has no picture or sound...


if there's absolutely nothing on the TV screen, then most probably the video output is different then the cables you are using (eg: video output HD and you are using AV cables). Are you sure your TV is set correctly? like using HD cable you have to choose HDMI or AV cable choose AV. Anyway, When the PS3 is on, turn it off by pressing and holding the power button on the front (so the light turns red) you will hear beep sound ( I can't remember how many but not once). This should reset the Video output to AV. Swithch to AV cables (if you're using HD). Usually if the system is set to AV output and you switch to HDMI cables, the system recognizes that and swithches to HD output. But if it's set to HD output and you are using AV cables, it doesn't switch back; that is what my system does.
