Adjust the video input on the TV to match the input connector that is being used to connect to the PS3™ system.
Check that the cable is securely inserted. Try disconnecting the cable from the PS3™ system or TV and then reconnecting it.
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, and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.
If your TV has an OUTPUT MONITOR Output Jacks, Yellow, (Video) Red (Audio) & White (Audio) FEMALE RCA Jacks.Then these will output WHATEVER is showing on the TV screen. And can be used as an Output for any Recording Viewing device.
There will be other, FEMALE RCA Jacks,AV, Yellow, (Video) Red (Audio) & White (Audio) and possibly also The Composite Video, Red, Green, Blue, all Video, These are INPUTS, they will be there also. Make sure.

ok hook up the audio video in the OUTPUT on vcr and INPUT on the tv then make sure tv is changed to the right input channel now go to vcr and change that channel to AV,.if AV isnt there you may have to go into menu of vcr and do a channel search,but when you change it to AV on vcr you should see the picture
Your player has several outputs and you might want to start with the basic Video Audo Left Right output first.
Set your with your plazma to see if you can change the input types to accept the video and audio input which will probably be labeled AV 1, AV 2 and so on.
My guess is that you have it set for Component Red Blue Green which his a high def (just before HTMI) and requires a separate audio cable. Your player, depending on the age of the unit, probably will not have Red Blue Green picture output.
Next if you have an HTMI output from your player hook that to your Plazma in the HDMI 1 position and select it on the TV's setting. Audio and Video are both carried in the HDMI cable.
if there's absolutely nothing on the TV screen, then most probably the video output is different then the cables you are using (eg: video output HD and you are using AV cables). Are you sure your TV is set correctly? like using HD cable you have to choose HDMI or AV cable choose AV. Anyway, When the PS3 is on, turn it off by pressing and holding the power button on the front (so the light turns red) you will hear beep sound ( I can't remember how many but not once). This should reset the Video output to AV. Swithch to AV cables (if you're using HD). Usually if the system is set to AV output and you switch to HDMI cables, the system recognizes that and swithches to HD output. But if it's set to HD output and you are using AV cables, it doesn't switch back; that is what my system does.
i currently have the exact same problem...i always play HDMI but i went home from college for thanksgiving and wanted to play on a regular AV jack TV, hooked up, and have no picture whatsoever...and i think it's because of the settings on the PS3 since it's set to send out an HD signal...Well i found this straight from Playstation3.com, on the support/troubleshooting section
If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 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 PLAYSTATION®3 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."
Hey i just posted i have the same problem as you do but then I checked the SONY PS3 website and it solved my problem. Try resetting your video output. I'll paste what it says on the PS3 website but if that doesn't solve your problem go to the website. They have a bunch of troubleshooting solutions for this problem...
If while manually changing the Video Output Settings, the screen
remains blank for more than 30 seconds, you may need to perform the
following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.
While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the
front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on
the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again .
(So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light
--> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held
down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up,
the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard
resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your
