How do we change PS3 settings from HDMI back to non HD?

PS3 was working fine then we went to visit friends with a HD telly and set it up for HD. Now back home we cannot get the PS3 to work on our non HD telly. Can anyone help please?

Switch it to standby then hold the power button for three beeps(not including the first power on beep)this should open a troubleshooting menu,pick option 2.If it doesnt give you the menu first time,switch it off at the back and repeat the steps again.Good luck.

MY PS3 is hooked up via HDMI and has always worked fine. All of a sudden i went to turn it on and there was nothing but black, it detected a signal, but it was just black.


Hi there, Have you switched cables or changed any of the video output settings on the ps3 or your telly? Just double check all the settings and that the cables are connected properly and are not damaged. If you have another cable try that to see if you still have a black screen or try on another telly with the same cable to see if it's the cable that the problem is? If you using a standard cable to try on another tv, you will have to reset the video output so it will work, to do this simply hold down the power button on the front of the ps3 until it powers off again and this will allow it work on a standard tv with standard cable, and to switch back to hdmi just connect with hdmi. Cable to HDTV and the ps3 will detect the cable and ask if you want to use these settings. Hope this helps

Message stating check signal cable


Hi there, This could be a few possible issues. What you can try depending on your setup, is 1st to try and connect your ps3 to a different telly using the same cables if possible, like if you had it connected to hd telly with hdmi cable, use this setup on another telly to see if you have the same problem. If it's the same on the 2nd telly then it's the hdmi cable that's the problem, just replace and you should be good to go, but if it works on the 2nd telly then you will have to adjust some settings usually a resolution issue on the 1st telly. You can also try using an analogue cable that came with the ps3 to see if that works. If it was the analogue cable you were using anyway you may need to get a new one, but try on another telly 1st to be sure. It's most likely just a resolution issue but if you have the same problem on 2 tellys it's probably the cable then. Hope this helps

Ok, you need to reset the PS3 back to standard video settings by doing the following :

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

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

Step 3. Wait for the display to initialize.

Hope this helps

MY SCREEN IS BLANK MY TV IS NON HDMI AND SO WAS


  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

PS3 not working on reg tv's after HDMI use on LCD HD tv


Shelley,  the fix for this is simple! Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and the system will beep. This resets the video setting for your ps3 from HD too whatever the current cables are that you are using too hook up too the tv. This works on my PS3 which I just bought about 3 months ago and should work with the older ones.

Display not working


how down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.
