Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (80GB) Console

1 Answer

No start up menu

Just bought a Playstation 3 off Craigslist and I dont have a manual. Heres the problem - when I turn it on the TV says no signal for about 5 minutes and then the game starts and works fine. If I take the game out it goes back to no signal. Is there something on the joystick I should be pushing?

How do I change my resolution on my 32 inch flat screen from 480 to 720


Assuming your TV will support 720p signals, check how you have the TV connected to the Playstation 3. Change your video cable to component video or HDMI, depending on the TV. (The Composite input is limited to 480i (SD) pictures. The same is true for a SCART connection.) Put the TV to the new input by pressing the Input Source button on the TV Remote or through the menu depending on your TV.

You may have to do the first of these steps before changing your cables and the TV input source (I'm not sure). On the Playstation, select Settings and then Display Settings.Choose your video output (component or HDMI). Next select all resolution that the TV can use. (Most 32" TVs only do 720p. There are some that can do 1080i or 1080p.) Confirm the video connection works. Then Save your settings.

For screen captures of the steps, see: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/3_15/settings/videooutput.html . You should always turn off the TV and the Playstation before swapping the cables. (So you may need to stop and save after setting the output to component video. Then return to the Display Settings menu.)

I hope this helps.

Cannot access menu with remote, can i access menu manually ?


If there is a menu button on the TV then you can, but if it isnt working on your remote then there must be a problem with the remote. You can look at the manual that came with the TV for more information on that and if you dont have one heres a link to one: http://www.scribd.com/doc/34310286/Sharp-LC-32AD5E-BK

My PS3 has no sound when game starts. It does have sound before game. Also, the Blu-Ray movies skip & dont play.


It sounds like the sound signal type might be incorrect. I'd go into sound settings in the options menu, and when it asks whether you want manual or automatic, choose manual. Tell it to send regular PCM audio instead of the default Dolby settings, and see if this fixes your issues.

Ok so i bought a play station 3 in iraq while i was deployed it is 220 and i bought a power converter since i got home and it turn on every thing works but it will not put out a signal for my tv neither...


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

No signal on both EXTs on TV


Try a video reset. Turn the system to standby, where just the red power light is on. Then hold the front power button till it turns on, beeps twice, and shuts off. Then turn on normally.

No signal using multi cable


Hi! Had encountered this problem also. Dont lose hope, there's a solution to it. First, turn off console using switch at the back and disconnect HDMI and connect AV Cable. Turn on console and after seeing red light in front of PS3 press the soft touch ON button in front for 5 SECONDS. Your TV would flicker a while but then it would display the PS3 XMB. To be sure with this solution, you can find it in the troubleshooting page of the manual where the same problem is also stated. That would be all. Good Luck!!
