Re: ps3 is not working

First Off I'd suggest going out and buying a A/V cable, either a normal one that retails for around 10 dollars US currency or a hi def one thats about 20 dollars US currency and hook the system up. It should be able to recognize it then, and you can go into settings and change over to the HDMI cable if you wish to. Or maybe the system just downright doesn't work, it'd be good to know, hmm?

I have a new slimline DVD and a sony bravia HD tv. My PS3 worked with the basis cable and I recently purchased an HDMI cable and now it won't work on any of my 6 AV channels, including 1 of the 2 HDMI...


All you have to do is reset the video settings on the PS3. Hold down the power button until you hear a single beep, then press it again.

That should have reset the video settings so you can play on the new TV.

Remove SCART leads, plug in HDMI from PS3 to TV HDMI 1 port.


Turn OFF TV, turn OFF PS3
Wait 15 seconds
Turn on TV
Press and Hold PS3 On switch until it has completed one recycle.
Now wait 2 secs and you should get the handshake and connection.

Connecting a PS3 to an LGHT902

Hi there,
If your TV is HD then the very best way to connect it is to use HDMI cables. These cables carry HD Video and Audio. both the PS3 & LG HT902 have HDMI connectors so if your TV does then these are all you need.
Connect one from the PS3 to an Input on the LG then one from the Output on the LG yo your TV.
I would not buy the cables locally because you will likely pay $25 to $50 each. You can get them on ebay or from for about $5.

Ps3 starts and the green light is on but no image omes up on my

Try connecting the PS3 to your TV with a scart cable first and go to the appropriate channel. The problem you are facing is probably because the default output is not HD. So you must change it to HD you can do this by going on your PS3 display settings, whilst your operating on standard definition, AV1 or something like that. When the you are on display settings plug the HD cable in the PS3 while still being on AV1 and then plug the cable in, this may prompt a message saying that a HDMI device has been detected and you can change to HD, if this message appears switch to the HDMI output and then select yes and automatic on the PS3 for optimal settings in HD. If the message does not appear then select the HD output yourself after plugging the HDMI cable in and then change to the channel and do the same.

PS3 - tv says no signal

You need to change the resolution output on your PS3 to match the capabilities of your TV. If your TV is not HD you can't leave the PS3's video output on HD. SCART is for european television connections. Have you tried using component cables? Have you tried changing your tv's source to Video 1 or Component 1 or HDMI or anything that might work? Good luck!!

Sony ps3 an samsung tv

Well your PS3 Can't connect with your TV to the Samsung, because PS3 Was made HD Blu-Ray. If your TV/Samsung is not supported by High Def. or Blu-Ray, it will not work, you will need a different HDMI Cable, and it should work fine.
Hope this Helped.
