Hook it up with a different connection, go into the main menu and "format" the ps3 to hdmi mode. Then your cord will work fine.

    The Menu in the PS3 has the setting you need to change, you will need a different hook up like the component cords, then you should be able to see the ps3 and get to the input

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board . In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

I used a xbox hdmi cord for my ps3 and changed my ps3 settings to be compatible. The I tried to use the av audio cord and it did not show the picture. How do I fix this?


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.

I have my ps3 plugged in but powered off so just a red light is on.i push power button light turns green I hear fan come on and everything sounds normal but it has no picture at all.it takes cd no pro


Rudy, are you connecting to the TV with HDMI, or RCA cords? HDMI carries both picture and sound thru 1 cord, whereas RCA splits it to YELLOW RED and WHITE. The HDMI connection is automatically detected when connected to your TV. It will say"HDMI is detected, do you want to use these settings?" RCA is not automatic, and is prone for the video(YELLOW) cord to develope a bad connection. I wouls duggest first replacing the cord. They are inexpencive, and the fastest way to check your issue. I am going to include a link to a youtube video that will guide you through the steps on how to reset your video settings on your system.

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.

Power cames on but no picture


make sure all your cords are connected right and press the power button on the playstation 3, NOT the controller, and hold it down until u hear 3 or 4 beeps, then let go and it should start up with a Audio/Video set up page, and if this does not work make sure you are on the right channel/AV/HDMI setting, if you have a HDTV with multiple HDMI ports make sure you are on the right HDMI selection

How do i hook up a nintendo to my tv which cords go where and can someone walk me through it


Round peg into the round hole. Red peg on the red slot. etc. If the wire from the nintendo doesn't fit the slot on the tv then you're in the wrong slot. if the wire from the nintendo fits the slot on the tv (and is the same color if you are using red/white/yellow rca cables) then you're good. here's a hint on connection types (you will not mix): 1. RCA (red/white/yellow round connectors) Red=right audio sound White=left audio sound Yellow=video connect to the slots that look like they want some. 2. Coaxial (stiff cable with a pinner poking out of the end -- same cable that connects you to cable tv) just hook it up by itself; it carries audio and video. 3. Component (red/green/blue)(red/white) two 'bundles' red=red component of video green=green component of video blue=blue component of video red=right audio white=left audio 4. VGA + (red/white) VGA=video (computer monitor cable) red=right audio white=left audio 5. HDMI (flat hdmi cable. you spent $30 on this 3 foot ****) HDMI=audio and video 6. hugs and kisses hugs=video kisses=audio (both sides)

Picture but no sound through my s-video hook up.


S video is just video, you need to run two rca jacks to the left and right audio channel thet the s video is on. The only one that runs both audio and video is the HDMI, component is 5 wires, s is 3, as is the old shhool rca 2 audio 1 video, so if you want the best picture and sound use the HDMI, next step down is Component, 5 wires, 1red ,1blue, and one green, just for the video, then the right and left audio. Or an optical audio, but HDMI is what you want, one wire does it all

I had the same problem. Panasonic is kind of a pain about the whole thing. You have to find out who your local Panasonic repair place is, tell them there is a service bulletin and they will get on it. You must be diligent! Do not take no for an answer! If it comes down to it, and the repair shop won't do it for you, then call Panasonic and endure a loooooong wait time. Trust me though...this is the issue. Once the eeprom gets fixed/updated/whatever, the picture looks amazing! Good luck.
