This sounds like your Audio Video Input Cable may be bad. This is quite common and can be easily tested with a friends cable or you may have to purchase another one.

You may also want to check this on another television set to ensure that there is not a problem with the current set's input connection (it does happen).

If this just suddenly happended, then you may have inadvertently set it up for Standard TV as opposed to Hi Def or vice versa.

If you have not tried resetting the video, then while your PS3 is in standby (red light) hold down the power button on the PS3 for 2 beeps. That will reset the video options.

Try it out and post results.

I hope this helps,

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.

I have audio but no video. used mainly for blu-ray playback but games have been played on the system.


Have you recently plugged the ps3 into another TV?

Try resetting the ps3 back to default.

1. Hold down the power button the ps3 system to turn it on and keep holding the button after the ps3 comes on
2. You should then hear another beep and the ps3 will reset both the audio and the video to default settings.

Hope this helps :)

Will the Sony STR-DG820 receiver support 3D?


I have this amp and mine does not have the latest firmware (indicated by a green or blue dot near the serial number) and it does not pass through Audio or Video when a 3D Blu-Ray is played in my PS3 although my TV (Sony Bravia XBR-52HX909) does say "3D Video Signal Detected." No audio or video ever plays but the PS3 looks like it's playing.

Hello Undernet01,

Yes, it's very simple. Connect the computer speakers to the headphone socket on the TV, then run a separate audio cable from the PC to the TV. A PC monitor cable wont carry an audio signal so you need to connect an RCA type cable or similar - depending on whether you have corresponding audio OUT sockets on the PC and audio IN sockets on the TV.

You will then have sound from both the PS3, the PC, and the TV on the computer speakers. The TV speakers will automatically switch off when something is plugged into the headphone socket.

Simples as pies.

Game sound doesn't work


Hello..

What you are experiencing is as a result of bad audio connection.

Please Check the mute function on your TV or audio system if there is no sound

Check the audio settings of your device to make sure it "sees" the PS3. Also make sure you are using the correct audio cables and they are properly connected.

Make sure the input mode on your TV is compatible with the connectors used by the PS3

Also check the audio settings of the game you are playing..

Using bluetooth audio with ps3 netflix


The Bluetooth audio signal for PS3 only carries voice chat. The game sounds and music are played through your TV or stereo receiver only.

It doesn't work on my ps3 no picture only audio


If it works on other televisions, than the video cord must be good. Is the television on the right input channel? If it is, the video input may be bad. You should test the video input with a dvd player or vcr. You can always plug ps3 into a vcr, and vcr up to televison.
