Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

4 Answers

Unhooked ps3 from an hd tv and plugged it into an sd tv and it shows no picture.

I go to college. where i go to school i have my ps3 hooked up to my hd tv with an hdmi cable. i set my ps3 to 1080i resolution. when i left for home i forgot to set my ps3 back to standard def. now that i'm at my parents house i have it hooked up with regular av cables. Is there anyway to get my ps3 back to standard def without hooking it back up to an hd tv. my problem is that since the screen does not display a picture i cannot search through the menu to change the settings. anything will help like maybe a step by step guide through the menu to change it manually (you know without being able to see the screen) (or like giving a blindfolded person directions to a spot). thank you

    I am having trouble hooking my ps3 40GB up to my jvc rear projection hdtv. I have tried tuning the system off and holding the power button to reset the output settings for hdmi but it does nothing. It will work with the regular cables but not the hdmi cables. Can you give me a step by step process of how to fix it?

When in standby mode(redlight) push and hold the power power button until you hear the second beep. This should reset your PS3 to it's standard 480i resolution.

Sd dish reciever not recognized by hdtv tuner


Hey dgrines81!

I would need more information to provide an accurate solution including what model of receiver, but it sounds like you have an SD receiver hooked up to a HD TV.

Our SD receivers can show picture on an HD TV, they just need the correct cable. If your TV has the spot, I would recommend using RCA (Red, Yellow, White) cables. Plug those in to the receiver and the TV and then change the input. If the problem continues feel free to reach me here, or at thomas.faust@dish.com.

How to put playstation where it will show on a regular TV that does not have HD my son took his playstation over his friends who had a HD TV when he brought it back home and hooked it on same TV they had...


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.

No video or sound


Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.

Thanks,
Ced

I have power to my ps3 but no pictu on the tv.


Also, if it was previously plugged in to HD, it might need to be switched back to SD cable. To do this switch your ps3 off, then press and hold the power button when you turn it on. It will beep once when you turn it on, then beep again after a few seconds. Once it's beeped the second time the display settings will be reset and hopefully it will show up on the screen.
