Playstaion Shows only in black white

A couple of weeks ago my cousin step on my AV cable for my playstaion and broke the prongs of the Video and Audio cables. My television has to alternate input channels so I bought another AV cable for my PS3, however when I hooked it up it only showed the picture in black in white. I already check the setting on the TV but it still shows black and white could someone please help?

Try manually resetting the video.

While the PS3 is off,

Press and HOLD down the POWER BUTTON

When you hear the second beep, QUICKLY release the power button.

Let me know what happens.

Picture Is Black and White or Does Not Appear
Situation:

The console powers on and shows a black and white image on the television screen
The console powers on and there is no image on the television
 

What to do:

Determine whether the Standard AV Cables (packaged with the system) or the Component Cables (sold separately) are being used.
AV Cables
Ensure the yellow, red, and white cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)
Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.
If the TV does not have the yellow, red and white inputs, it will most likely have component inputs which allow standard AV cable use. Try these AV hookup steps. (How To)
Component Cables
Ensure the red, blue and green video cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)
Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.
 

Still Not Resolved:

If the television is continues to show a black and white image when powering on the Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

Audio and video not working


try turning the system on by holding the on;off button, it will restore your audio and video settings to it's default (so, you have to connect the ps3 to tv by the yellow white and red cables).

else, contact Sony support centre for possible hardware issues checking, it might be a problem with your GPU unit .

The main reason why its acting that way its possible that the AV PORT is faulty or its your cables..

Try using a different hard drive. The reader arm may be stuck on the platter inside your hard drive so it can't fully boot. Thanks.
