Connect ps3 to a non HD tv and picture only black and white?

Are you connecting it to a new SD tv after having been connected to an HD set? You can force the system to reset the video resolution settings by pressing and holding the On/Off button after the system has already turned on. I believe it is ~5-10sec. You will hear another beep after the initial startup beep. This will reset video setting to default and go through the resolution setup wizard again.

However, it is also possible that you are trying to connect a component cable to a composite tv. They are VERY different signals even though the cables fit interchangeably. If you use the Green component cable for video on a composite tv you will only see a grayscale image of the picture. This is most likely your issue. If this is the case you will need to buy a composite cable for the PS3 (the PS2 one is the exact same as the PS3 one.)

FYI Component cable has Red, Green, & Blue cables. Composite has Yellow (Video), White (Left Audio), Red (Right Audio). Both are normal RCA type plugs and will fit in each others plugs, but the signals are VERY different.

No video but have audio

If you have already checked to ensure that the cables are firmly connected, the nest thing to try is another cable of the same type to see if the cable is the problem. If that doesn't resolve the issue then try and let the PS3 find the proper resolution automatically. Make sure your cables are firmly connected. Then turn on the POWER with the switch on the unit not on the remote. Keep holding down the power button until you hear a beep which should be about 5 seconds. You may have to try it a few times until you hear the beep. The PS3 will then automatically sense the cable connection as well as your display's native resolution. If that doesn't work then you likely have an internal issue. Unfortunately there are a number of problems that can cause the audio no video issue. At that point you would be better off having your local PS3 shop do a diagnostic on your machine. Most shops will probably charge you an hours labor to do the tests.

Greetings- my denon avr2802 is connected to ps3 for blu ray movies, games and music. The ps3 image goes directly to tv with hdmi and sound from ps3 goes to the denon using digital audio cable. Sound for...

Set the receiver for auto audio input - I think that you are getting caught out between MPEG and DTS audio. If you have the wrong one for the audio source then you hear nothing.

My PS3 hdmi cable does not work

First off, if you want to use the hdmi remove the supplied composite cable from the back of the ps3.
You don't need both plugged in at the same time, and I'm not sure with the ps3 but some video devices will not enable both at once.

Have your tv selected for whatever hdmi input you have it plugged into. They should be labeled where you plug them in.

With the unit in standby, switch off and red light in front, hold the power button by the disc tray for 3-5 second. You will hear it beep, after the initial turn on beep, then you should see a display set up screen.

If you switch back to the composite, you will have to do this over again.
