Excerpt from the PlayStation 3 Manual:

There is no picture on the TV screen.

*Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the system.

*There may be a problem with the AV cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PS3 system.

*If the video output settings on the system do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, with only the system and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

*If the resolution of the video content is not supported by the TV in use, when the video is played the screen may go blank. If this happens, go to the screen for selecting the resolution in the system's video output settings, select "Custom" and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

When I turn my ps3 on I get no video on my tv and I just bought the wire so its not the wire... How can I fix this?


Obviously, first make sure the PS3 and television/projector are actually on. Then confirm the television actually works, and that the port you're connecting to on the TV works (connect another console, for example).

You should then make sure all cords are firmly attached to the PS3 and you television.

If the cables are snugly in place and you still have the issue, you should make sure the PS3 is outputting the correct video. To do this, power off your system, then press the power button to turn it on, but keep it held down for a couple of seconds (around 5 seconds I believe). It should beep and your video settings will be reset.

Still nothing? Make sure the cables are working. Swap them out with cables you know that work, or test the cables in question on something else (another PS3 or old PS2 for the regular cable, anything that has HDMI out for the HDMI cable). I know you said it's not the wire but you should confirm it because the next solutions are kind of a last resort...

You might have to send it in to Sony, which can be done here. They take forever to send it back though, and if you're out of warranty it costs $150 (it's free if you're under warranty though!).

Alternatively, if you're awesome and feeling adventurous, you can fix it yourself. Here's a guide, and more can be found online.

Regardless, hope everything works out!

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.

Sound but no picture on PS3 using AV3/4


if it's happening with your ps2 and your ps3 on teh same tv, try it on a different tv. if you're getting sound but no picture, tehn it's something with your cables or your tv. restting the display setting should get your picture back up. make sure the system is in standby and then hold down teh power button. it will turn green and beep, then flash green and beep again. it should brng up a picture. if not, check your component cables, especailly if it works with the original cables.

No video - blue screen...


since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.

PS2


Your PS2 is definitely broken. Either send it in to Sony to be repaired or buy a new PS3. Bummer. Sorry to hear about this.

PS2 screen won't show on tv set to game


try to trouble shoot if the wire is the problem, how? remove the 3 colored wires from the tv and ps2 then try to use the red color instead of yellow to the video from tv and ps2 (both red) temporarily do not use the yellow color. once a picture appears use now the white for the audio (both white) for left audio once there is a sound you may try the yellow for the right audio. i hope this will help you and hear a positve reply from you.
