You need to do a video reset to your system. You might have to do this every time you go between HDMI and A/V. Here is a link how. It's really easy. ^^ Good luck. P.S. It's the same for every model of the PS3.

SOURCE: ps3- hdmi to av

unless there is a switch on the ps3 itself to change to normal tv, you may have to reconnect the ps3 via HDMI and change the screen resolution back to 480p or change the settings in the setup from hdmi to av.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.


What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.

Im not getting anything (soud or picture) with the red, yellow, and, white cords. thats because it is set for the HDMI cable. how do i get the picture to come in without a HDMI compatable TV?


Sounds to me like you will need to plug the PS3 into a HDMI capable display and change the output settings on the PS3 to composite / AV.
Then reconnect to the non HDMI TV. The red, yellow and white cables should now work.

Hello,

Adjust the system's audio output settings. These settings are mainly used when the system is connected to audio devices that support digital audio output, such as AV amplifiers (receivers) for home entertainment systems.
1.
Confirm the formats supported by your audio device.
Settings vary depending on supported formats. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the audio device.
2.
Select in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) under in_setting.gif (Settings) in the home menu.
3.
Select [Audio Output Settings].
4.
Select the input connector on the audio device. Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use.

HDMI HDMI OUT connector in_maru.gif in_maru.gif in_maru.gif Digital Out (Optical) Digital Out (Optical) connector in_maru.gif in_maru.gif - Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI AV MULTI OUT connector in_maru.gif - - 5.
Select audio output formats.
Select all output formats that are supported by the audio device in use. If [Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting audio output formats will not be displayed. If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically set the audio output format. (In this case, the HDMI device must be turned on.)
soundoutput003.jpg 6.
Check your settings.
You can go back to the previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the in_left_key.gif button.
soundoutput002.jpg 7.
Save your settings.
The audio output settings are saved on the system.
Hints
  • [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio is set to be output from all output connectors by default. If you change the audio output settings, audio will be output only from the connectors that were set.
  • If you change the audio output settings, the system will no longer be able to output audio from multiple output connectors at the same time. For example, if your system is connected to a TV via an HDMI cable and to an audio device via a digital optical cable and you switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings], audio will no longer be output from the TV. To output audio from the TV, switch the setting to [HDMI], or select in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) > [Audio Multi-Output] and set the option to [On].
  • If you select [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 88.2 kHz] or [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 176.4 kHz] in step 5, sound may be intermittent or may not be emitted from some audio devices.
  • When using an HDMI cable, only [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio will be output from PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software. To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.

Hope it helped.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

If it has a hdmi cable and you or a friend has a tv compatible try and get a picture from their.
It sound that you might have a faulty cord for the video, or possibly the video drive has gone out on the 360, witch is a reported problem on many consoles.

Try to use b/g/r or the hdmi.
Is your switch on the correct location?
Av or High deff.

Good luck
