SOURCE: ps3 a/v connection not working

You will need to change the video settings from HDMI to the lower resolution first before you can use. (component/RGB/svideo etc)

Or just follow the below to reset the video settings.

Hi. Please help. I'm using sony Bravia klv-s3210,


Change the resolution for the picture to match the resolution from the PS3. It probably will never work as VGA does not support HDMI resolution.

My ps3 console signal isn't working but the sound works but there is no signal! not even a hdmi cable works help!


Try these tips to fix the so-called "black screen of death".

Tip 1: The main reason of HDMI black screen problem due to HDMI cable may be damaged and not properly connected to the PS3 console. Please follow below step to troubleshoot PS3 HDMI cables problem:

1) Restart your PlayStation 3.
2) Look for loose cables.
3) Try to unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them back in. If you found out that your HDMI cable is damaged, borrow a friends cable and try it. If your friends cable works fine, and the black screen error disappears. Then you can buy a brand new HDMI cable for a replacement.

Tip 2: Only try as last resort. There is a possibility you'll lose all data on your PS3's hard drive. If tip 1 didn't work, you will need to go a step deeper and reset your console. Most PS3 gamers are not aware that Sony actually included a black screen of death troubleshooting method and other HDMI problems in the PS3 manual, you can find it under the troubleshooting section - topic "console reset".

If you do it correctly, the console reset fix will allow you to reset back your PS3 to its default HDMI settings without impacting your gamer profile, and other storage data on the hard drive.

You will need to perform the following steps:

1. Place your PS3 in stand-by mode.
2. Hold down the touch power button until a series of beeps are heard.
3. Listen for one long beep, followed by two shorter beeps.
4. Release the power button.
5. Follow the instructions on screen.

If it works you should be good to go.

I have a problem with my samsung tv and my PS3, when i try to be on HDMI... All this time (for about 1,5 year) it worked perfectly, but now it doesnt! The tv has a "No signal" message and...


It is possible that your PS3 has "Forgotten" its HDMI setting. Please try the following to see if it fixes your problem :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (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. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to display.

Do this with the HDMI lead connected and hopefully it will sort it for you.

Hope this helps

I have my PS3 plugged into my RX-V365 via HDMI then i have my RX-V365 plugged into my Sony Bravia, the problem is i get no Audio through the HDMI input on my Amp but it still comes through the TV how can i...


Run optical or digital coaxial from your PS3 to the receiver and HDMI from the PS3 directly to the TV. Your receiver's version of HDMI will not work, it's 1.1 and cannot be updated. That's the fix, if you want more info on HDMI problems google HDMI issues or problems and you will find thousands of posts and forums on this issue. Short answer though is, you either need a receiver with version 1.3b HDMI or run optical or digital coaxial for audio to your receiver. Hope this helps

PS3 no picture problem..


Try using RGB cables and unplug the HDMI cable from the PS3, then while the PS3 is off, hold down the power button/sensor on the PS3 untill you hear a beep or a few beeps. This will force the PS3 to automatically detect the TV/cable resolution settings. Hope this works.
