Can not get picturew on TV

I had my PS3 set on hdmi for video and audio. Problem is that I am traveling and can not get it to work on any of the hotel TV's because they do not have an HDMI connection. I hook up the regular cables to the Tv and get no piture or audio. Is there a way to reset the ps3 so it can be used on a regular TV? I can not adjust the setting due to the fact I get no picture.

Hold the power button until you see the picture come up. I think it's around 10 seconds.

NO audio on my TV/PS3 while TV connected with receiver via HDMI


Check the audio settings in the PS3 console. Then check the firmware version of HDMI that your receiver uses. It may be listed on the manufacturers webpage or in your manual. It must be 1.3a or 1.3b in order to work with your PS3. The downside to this is that there is no firmware "patch" to correct the problem. If you still have issues, post a reply on this thread and I can help you further and give you some options that "Will" correct the problem without degrading video and audio. Hope this helps.

HDMI Video not working on kv-30hs420 but audio works


AmigaDude posts how to reset the video to factory settings here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=766771

The instructions are as follows: 1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Once reset, you'll connect your RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow) and set up the PS3 display settings. To get there from the XMB bar, go to Settings > Display Settings. You might have to disconnect the HDMI cable from the PS3 before the RCA cables work. I don't remember entirely.
Select Video Output Settings > HDMI > Automatic. If you can see the prompt about a max resoultion of 1080i (with your HDMI cable plugged in) you should be good. Select Yes and press X to continue. You can set up the audio but it's not necessary. Select Finish and you should be good.

MX 3950D Philips - PS3 no sound


Aside from the xbox360 working via the coaxial digital cable. I got the PS3 to work this way.

I had to use the supplied SCART > (Y-video) (Red-Audio) (White-Audio) cable. Basically plugged this in from the PS3 directly to the MX 3950D Aux (Auxiliary) audio input.

On the PS3 audio settings menu, switched from HDMI to the 3rd option SCART.

Turn on the MX 3950D and set to Aux. Bang, got sound again.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I missed this cause I "assumed" the video/audio cable that came with the PS3 was a HDMI to Audio/Video cable, and didn't even see the SCART port in the back of the PS3. So I thought I didn't want to lose 1080p ..etc etc. Anyways. MX 3950D still good =)

Ps3 plays audio but does not show image on tv


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.

Separate video and sound on hdmi


yes it would be possible to separate audio and video from your PS3. You would need to go to the PS3 setting for audio and choose Optical instead of HDMI. You would need to connect and Optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. Then on the receiver you would need to set the digital inut for your source(PS3) to optical.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.
