Use your own cords but it is broken inside your tv. the ps3 is not the problem its not the cords it is simply the tv were u insert the cord. something may have yanked it out fast and disconnected it. my solution would be to connect it to the back of a dvd player and then put the tv on video mode that is how i play at my dads but at my moms it works fine on some tvs but not on one because my puppy pulled out the cord to hard.

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.

PS3 Scart / HD


Turn it off with the "hard" switch in the back. Then turn it back on with the switch while pressing the power button on the front for 10 secs, this should reset your display settings.

Hello can you help with this error!


When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.

Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.

Hope this helps.

Ps3 wont show or load games


If you originally set up the PS3 with A,V cables it won't work on HDMI even if you set it up to and visa versa. There is a work around but you will have to call tech support. Here is a link at Sony's PS3 tech support that may help also. http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=263

Hi I recently played my ps3 on my friends tv using an hdmi lead and all was fine. Now i have returned home and tried to play my ps3 without the hdmi lead and it wont work can you help please.


go back to your friends with your ps3 and change the tv settings on the ps3 back to scart output but also take your scart lead and have it plugged in at the same time. once you have selected scart output unplug the hdmi cable to make sure the settings are right. hope this helps you.
