Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Green Screen Hello!  Just hooked up via HDMI a brand new PS3 to a month-old Sony Bravia HDTV.  Went through the set up screens, then it downloaded updates, then it displayed a blank, green screen and nothing else will happen.  Re-booted it to no avail.  Also turned TV off and on.  Any ideas?

I have both an HDTV and a regular tv. When I set up the ps3, I told it to hook up with the HDMI cable. I want to move the ps3 to the regular tv, and the video and audio won't appear on my regular tv.

First add the basic wires to the old tv too. Then go to the screen options while using the hdmi on your hdtv and set it to the normal non-hd screen mode. Then it should appear on your regular tv

Cascading white craziness

First thing you should try is using the regular old AV cables. That way we know if it's an hdmi problem or a video problem with the PS3. Hook them up, do the manual video reset ( hold down the power button until you hear a second beep, quickly release) and then post back here with the results.

PS3 Video Connection--Lines on TV

this may be due to the fact that your ps3 will be set up to hd. go into video settings when you switch it on and this should solve the problem. i had similar problems and bought a hdtv until someone pointed this out to me. however once you have experienced ps3 in hd you will not go back!!! hope this helps

PS3 no picture on screen. Borrowed Unit from a friend.

If the TV was originally set up on an HDTV via HDMI cables you'll have to reset the video/audio outputs on the PS3. When you turn the PS3 on hold your finger down on the button until it beeps a second time, then remove your finger and let the console restart. That should reset the PS3's video output.

Ps3 won't display on hdtv via dvi

Re-Set the PS-3, by pressing and holding down the power button (front panel) this hard re-sets the unit and yo can then reconfigure via the composite video cable it came with, back to HDMI / DVI

Ps3 unit stopped working

when on standby hold the power button for 4 seconds, it runs the optimal settings screen, i dont think this is your prob but it might help. What cable was used at your neighbours? was it an hdmi cable? did you knock your ps3 when moving it?
