Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.

But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.

PS3 Problem... I turned on my ps3 but nothing shows up on the television screen and controls wont even detect... PS3 shows that it is receiving power because the power light on ps3 is green. Can someone...


Turn the power off on the switch on the back, and then back on again. Hold down the power button, keep on holding it down after the first beep, but let go once another couple of beeps sound. It should then take at max a minute but then it should show a screen set up section.

Plasma shows rings of contrast around highlights & shows echos of what has been on the screen which last several seconds before fading away


This is common with plasmas actually. So long as the image fades and isn't a constant residual affect I wouldn't worry about it, but if it is constant and doesn't fade, its a sign of plasma burn out. The plasma in the tv has been active too long with one specific image or series of images. 

Plasma televisions have been complained about because of this.

You could have the wrong AV channel on your TV to the slot you have you PS3 plugged into your TV with.

Or you colud have set your PS3 to a HDMI setting while using a non-HD TV, I think there's a way to reset this setting on your PS3, check the manual.

PS3 No signal to the TV


I'm having similar problems. I had my PS3 on pause, whent out for a couple hours, came back to find a weird fuzzy screen. My PS3 had froze, so I turned it off. I turned it on a couple minutes later, and the green light came on, however, my controllers would not connect, no image was popping up and it also wouldnt turn off unless I flicked the switch on the back. After contacting Sony, they told me it could be an overheating issue. If it has been less than a year, they will replace it, NOT FIX IT. Which is great and all, but unfortunately I am about to lose the countless hours I've put into assassins creed, skate, call of duty 4 and motorstorm.

HOWEVER. If your PS3 is still "functioning properly" except for no signal, turn the power off on the back, turn it back on, press and hold the power button on the front untill you hear the second beep, let go, give it a couple seconds, turn it off from the back and then back on, hold it till the second beep again. Good luck.

P.S. I recomend getting the extra cooling fan for it, and saving game data on another card (SD) incase crap like this happens.

Fading monitor


This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I just "Shotgun" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use High Temperature Caps, Good luck.
