Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

No Picture?? ok so i switched from HDMI to component cables and i have done this process many times before but this time my picture turned black and stayed black.   It asked for the ps3 button to be pressed but when i pressed it the lights just kept blanking for ever. so i turned off the ps3 and tried again and all i got was blinking controller lights and a black ps3 screen. i have tried 3 different cables on three different tvs. still no luck.  I hope someone can help me because i think that 150 price tag sony charging is ridiculous

My plastation 3 works when i hook it up through the hdmi cable but not the regular cables that come with the consol. is there a setting i need to change?the cables are not broken nor are the hookups on my...


Ok, you need to reset the PS3 back to standard video settings by doing the following :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the display to initialize.

Hope this helps

How do you change the output setting from hdmi to the rca cable setings? I have no picture screen on my crt tv.


you have to reset the ps3 because you have it with hdmi before and the ps3 is looking for an hdmi connection is very easy and there is nothing wrong with your ps3 ok so do the follow
turn the power switch off on the back of the unit then put your finger in the on/off switch now turn the main switch on the back of the unit you will heard a first bip sound this is when your ps3 turns on ok keep your finger there in the on/off switch until you heard another bip sound now remove your finger from the on/off switch and bingo this will reset your video settings now you can see picture again using regular av and every time you use hdmi you have to do this again

I have been playing my playstation 3 on a regular Hd tv and it worked fine but now it wont connect to my Protron (HDMI) tv with my HDMI cable.


you have to reset the video setting and it will work again Hdmi is different on each tv so you have set this up again ok let's do this with the unit off turn the main switch on the back of the unit connect your Hdmi cable to your tv now place your finger on the front on/off switch keep your finger there ok now turn the mainswitch on the back of the unit the playstation turns on but don't remove your finget yet wait about 4 seconds or until your heard another bip (not the one when the playstation turns on) once you heard this bip remove your finger before the playstation turns off if you let it turn off try again all of this but if you remove your finger on time just wait few more seconds and bingo you have picture again using Hdmi

No HD picture, but standard def is ok


that's a weird problem...looks like your scaler chip is failing...not much you can do except try using vga or hdmi converter to see if that would work...good luck

Black and white.


sounds like a prob with the component cable...switch to lo def and plug in your yellow composite cable if the picture is fine then, then you know its the cable and not the xbox. good luck!

No picture connected via HDMI


Your PS3's HDMI settings may be the issue. When you go to turn on your PS3 next time, instead of just pressing the poser button and letting go, hold it for 5-6 seconds until it beeps again and then let go. This will force the PS3 to autodetect your TV again and should bring up the video. good luck!
