Recently used the PS3 on a HD TV and after changing settings to HD as asked by PS3 I tried to play it on the tv that is not HD compatible and it will not play. It was working prior to changing the settings and still works perfect with the HD tv. Please help b/c I want my son to stop using my nice tv. I tried resetting it by holding the power button down until it beeps but did not work.

Re: Will not play without using HDMI cable
Make sure the AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
Connect the other end of the AV Cable into the yellow Composite
port for video, and into the white and red audio ports (if your TV does
not have the red port, simply ignore it) on the back of your TV.
While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the
front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on
the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again .
(So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light
--> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held
down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up,
the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard
resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your

There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd
high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not
supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input
and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or
1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready
one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p). or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3.
change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video. ok
If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.
Hello there. There's a few possibilities. First, the obvious, do you have it set to 1080P in the Display Settings options? Secondly, are you using an HDMI cable? You need to be using HDMI to play games in full 1080P. I use the component cables (The red, green and blue ones) for my PS3 and when I'm on the XMB (that's the PS's desktop so to speak) it's displayed in 1080P but games will not play in 1080P, only 720P. Any old HDMI cable will do the trick, so don't get suckered by the price if you are going to pick up a cable!
Shelley, the fix for this is simple! Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and the system will beep. This resets the video setting for your ps3 from HD too whatever the current cables are that you are using too hook up too the tv. This works on my PS3 which I just bought about 3 months ago and should work with the older ones.
I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.
The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.
You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.
That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.
go back to your friends with your ps3 and change the tv settings on the ps3 back to scart output but also take your scart lead and have it plugged in at the same time. once you have selected scart output unplug the hdmi cable to make sure the settings are right. hope this helps you.
