Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

3 Answers

I can't get the picture.

My problem is that when i turn on the ps3 and the tv, and i know i am DEFINATELY on the right input, the tv doesn't show the picture. I have gotten a new hd cord that goes into hd tv's from the ps3, and the ps3 turns on fine. I think it is the little port that goes into the ps3, and i think the ps3 got knocked down and the cord damaged the port the is in the ps3 that holds the hd tv cord. It's not the tv, cause i have tried it on 3 different tv's and it hasen't worked on any of them. Over the last few day's it has been getting worse, because before i used to see like a bunch of fuzzy lines going back and forth, and could slightly see the picture. I also have tried going back to the old cord, and that didn't work ether. Sombody tell me what's wrong, or i am oing to have to fish out 500 bucks to buy a new one, and i don't feel like doing that.

Not an expert on PS3 but I'll try. Does your tv support the HD setting the PS3 is on? Does it support the frequency it is on? Frequencies can be 50Mhz and 60Mhz. HD setting could be 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. If you cannot change the setting because you cannot see the settings to do it, refer to a proffesional to find out how to do it without being able to see a picture.

When I hook up my ps3 to TV no picture shows up


Is it a flat screen LCD TV? if so check to see what input you are using.
Turn on your PS3 and try a different input.

Would like to hook up playstation2 can you help with this


I would suggest hooking up via HDMI or via the composite cables. Then all you should have to do is turn on your ps3, change the input on your tv to whichever port shows the ps3 or new input device. If it doesn't for some reason recognize it as ps3, you can always go into more detail using the tv to rename that port as the PS3. Hope this is what you wanted to know!

How do you use PS3 and DVD player with the Toshiba 32Dtu2 LCD TV?


The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.

Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.

If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.

If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps!

Connecting Ps3 with philips tv (full hd) when i got hd cable in, and click to switch so the ps3 uses hd to show things and i than switch over to the channel i plugin the hdmi cabel it gives blac kscreen


If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.

My ps3 is connected correectly to the tv but for some reason no picture is showing. It does come on and i have tried another ps3 to make sure everything is connected properly. HELP!!!!!


Try to find the right input ot the cable that your using. If your using HDMi cable then use the HDMI input of your tv, If your using Component Cable look for component input use the original remote of your tv and look for the right input.


Thanks for using Fixya

Will not display anything from the output, T.V. just says "no signal". Tried with both the HDMI cable as well as the regular audio/video cable. Television was definately on the right input, either HDMI-1...


Please follow these steps to solve your PS3 problem :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

How would i know if my HDMI ports are working or not?? Tried to connect a PS3 to it but nothing. Thought it may have been the cable so checked someones that i know is working and still nothing. Checked...


As you already checked PS3 and HDMI cable,
select HDMI input in TV and connect PS3 via HDMI cable. TV should show PS3 picture.
And if still no joy then HDMI input port in TV is bad and need to replace input board/ main board.
