Playstation3 has been converted to play 3d but now wont project an image does it require a hdmi cable


OK sometimes people put the HDMI cable to the PS3 and it changes the settings. Try to reset the ps3. Turn the ps3 off with just the red light showing. The hold the power button. when it beeps and the light changes keep holding it. then you with hear 2 to 3 beep right after another. When you do let the button go. The does a manual reset and whatever cables you have connected at the time should work. If this doesnt then your video card on the board might be out. I hope this helps you out.

My ps3 is not working because when i plug in all the leads the picture or sound does not work so i bought a new cable but it still does not work I think it may be because i plugged it in to a hd tv then...


Ok, please follow these steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once 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 restart

This basically resets the video output back to standard definition where you should now be able to set it up properly.

Hope this helps

I have two seperate playstation 3 consoles. One works just fine, but did not include the audio/video cables. The other one will not read blue ray disks. The cables from the one that cannot read disks will...


Ok, for the one that does not show the home screen, try this :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again about 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep.
Step 3. The PS3 should now come back to life on the screen.

What this has done is basically reset the PS3 display back to standard definition.

If this does not work please reply here and I will try another solution with you.

HD settings not working tried 2 diferent hdmi cables still in 576p


Hi,

Turn off the PS3 until the light goes red and make sure the HDMI cable is connected.

Hold down the power button for a couple of seconds until you hear 1 beep, that means the video settings has been reset.

You should now be able to set the video settings.

If this does not work you need to be looking at the HDMI settings on the TV itself.




Regards.

No video or sound


Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.

Thanks,
Ced

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.

Console starts up and I can hear but shows no picture.


make sure video cable is plugged in all the way on back of ps3. the a/v cable is little tricky. it looks like its plugged all the way but its not. also if doesnt work, if u have hdmi cable use it then go to display settings, then connetions. set it up as av cable connection then it will ask about audio - av rca connetions. and save. now its set up as av cables and then when u use hdmi it will automatically set up hdmi.

When you hear the second beep, QUICKLY release the power button.

PS3 starts up but doesn't show up on the screen.


You can try resetting the video. I had one that went out on me like that, and Sony told me to hold down the power button till you hear 2 beeps this will reset the video settings.

I never did get the playstation3 fixed so I tore it apart and learned what makes it tick. Very interesting.
