It happened to me too. When you plug in your av cables and are ready to play, follow these steps. With your PS3 off (Red light on), Press and hold the power button on your console. (Do not use the controller to turn it on.) Keep holding the button until you hear a second beep. (it takes about 2 to 3 seconds.) You will notice your screen flickers, then your PS3 will show up on the tv. All you did was reset the PS3 display settings. You can always go back to HDMI or AV cables. Have Fun.

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


You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard. 1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video) 2. Select [ Video Output Settings ] 3. Select HDMI 4. Select Resolution 5. Select Screen Size 6. Save the settings 7. Reboot the console. This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though. Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank GATpro Repairs

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.

With the ps3 already on standby, hold the standby button with the television on the correct channel until the display shows, it will take quite some time. Then change your setup accordingly.

You must go back to the origional place you used the HDMI last, and do all the setting up & hook up again, to get a picture, THEN set it to component, or AV, and THEN turn off shut down, Now it will work at the other place OK.

Green light but no picture or sound.


First thing you wanna try is a manual video reset.

It's probably a good idea to hook up the regular av cables as well.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Let me know what happens.

I have a ps3 i had it hooked up to a 46" samsung 1080p, then i drove 2 miles with ps3 in box and hooked up to a mitsubishi 1080i 52" tv and i could only see part of the ps3 screen either in game...


tv's are difffrent and the ps3 knows that.
You need to adjust the settings on the ps3 or on the tv.
It still works at your home correct?
If so its just a compatability issue with your ps3 and trying
to get it to work on another tv.. It thinks its still 1080p when its actually 2 miles down the road on a 1080i

Go to your system settins on your ps3 and change them to work on a 1080i

Good luck

And if you have anymore questions or if this dosn't work, please feel free to ask
