Hooked game system PS3 to tv-cannot get picture or sound

I have hooked the PS3 to the tv and tried every Input source on screen as well as hook ups in back of tv but still cannot get a picture or sound. Television is simply blank with only select Input in top right corner. I do not have a cable cord hooked from the tv to the wall however I have never needed cable on any other television to play a game system. Any solutions please????

SOURCE: Picture keeps alternating between HDMI1 "blank screen" and cable

try the lead in another slot and even another lead, if problem persists demand an engineer comes out.

I had my PS3 hooked up using a HDMI cable and it worked fine. Upon moving I had to switch to Component cables and now I dont get any picture or sound. Can you help?


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you are using component cable on your Ps3 you need to set the input of your Tv to Component Mode. Use the Remote of the Tv look for a Source or Input button then select Component Input.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Playstation 3 is on however the tv screen is


Since I don't know if this has worked for you before I can only give you advice. I'll do my very best to help you in whatever way I can.

If it's a new system I need to know how you have it hooked up. I'll start by having you troubleshoot some things:

If you want it hooked up through HDMI connection you'll need to hook up both the composite (Red White & Yellow) cord that came with it; along with the HDMI cord.

Turn your console on and set your TV input to whichever input the composite cable is hooked into.

Assuming you have picture:

Go to your settings and select Display Options. At the next menu, you'll want to switch it from composite to HDMI. Your screen will go blank.

Set your TV to whichever HDMI input you have it hooked to and you should see a display. Confirm if necessary.

If you still have no picutre:

What I would initially do then is make sure the system is off, turn your TV input to the correct video settings for the composite, and when you turn it on, hold your finger on the power button for a few seconds after it's on to set the default picture display.

You should have a picture now. If not, it could be your TV. Try these same steps on another TV.

Please let us know if you're having further issues & Good Luck!

Respectfully,

Don

Hooked up ps3 using hmdi cable worked not working now using the


mpc heesman1 might be right...

However. I´m inclined to think that you did change the input on your TV. So your problem is another, this is what you have to to to reset:


1. Unplug the HDMI cable from both the TV and PS3.
2. Plug in the AV MULTI OUT cable (the red, white, yellow one provided along with the system) to both your PS3 and TV.
3. Set the TV input to the correct one and turn it on.
4. turn on the PS3 with the front button but DON´T release it, keep your finger on it, until you hear a second beep, thats when you release the button, the PS3 will start to identify what it´s connected to and will display it on your TV.

Hope it helps.

I have my PS3 and TV hooked up to the HDMI ports. I have programmed the unit to show them under TV and DVD respectivly. When I change the source to TV or DVD, nothing shows up on my TV as expected


Sounds like you hooked them both up to HDMI input ports. Make sure that the PS3 is connected to an HDMI input port on the AVR-1508, and that the TV is connected to an HDMI output port (not an input).

Had the PS3 hooked up to a HDMI on my tv, now i hooked it up using the AV Cables and no picture or sound.


You have to go into the menu of your TV and set it up in the input area. Yo need to check your TV's manual maybe. I just did the same thing tonight on a tv new to me and with no manual. So if I can do it you can figuare it out.

No Picture, Only sound


You need to tell the PS3 that you are now using the new video method. It is still trying to output video on the yellow cable, not the component. If you go to settings>video and tell it to use component, and then switch the cables real quick, it should work.

An easier solution is to do a backup from the system menu, then a "restore" (quick restore is fine), and then power it off, hook up the new cable, and it will detect the video method when it turns on for the "first" time (since the restore).

You do have component input on your TV, and that is the input you are on when you are trying this, yes?
