My ps3 is not working because when i plug in all the leads the picture or sound does not work so i bought a new cable but it still does not work I think it may be because i plugged it in to a hd tv then...

Ok, please follow these steps :

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

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

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to restart

This basically resets the video output back to standard definition where you should now be able to set it up properly.

Hope this helps

I just bought a PS3 from someone who doesnt have the user manuals. Im not sure how to connect it to my tv. I connected the HDMI cable. Is there something else I have to do?

you have to tell the tv to expect a hd signal just like changing extentions with scart leads. you will have options for hdmi 1-2-3 etc.
once you get a picture go through ps3 settings carefully.

No picture or sound on ordinary TV after hooking up with HD TV

You system is still out-putting through the HDMI cable. Press & hold the "on" button after the system is already on, it should go back to regular factory settings & show up on your screen.

I never tried a Ps3 on a standard def tv before but you may need a HDMI cable to connect from the tv to the console and you need a port on the tv for the av cable that comes with the ps3 to plug into the tv from the ps3. An HD tv has everything for the ps3 to run

Full HD picture NO SOUND from ps3 to lg42hd using HDMI

Maybe your TV is not made for HD from the Sony Console. Try calling Sony Customer support, then your TV's brand Customer support. That will tell you if your TV Model allows the HD from the PS3. Remember though, PS3 Uses Blu-Ray. So you need Blu-Ray for your TV. Hope this helped.

press front power switch to turn it on and hold for a few seconds, it will beep a few times and turn off automatically. now everything you setup for hd tv will be defaulted to normal.
