When you use the HDMI cable the system becomes automated, it detects that the HDMI cable is in use and with your help it sets up your audio and video.

RCA or Composite cables (same thing) are basic and dont communicate, so you have to go to your system settings in the XMB (cross media bar) and look for video settings, change them back to composite, and do the same for your audio. If that is too much work for ya you can do a master reset of the system. Hook the system up using your RCA cables while the system is powered off, then turn the system on wait 30 seconds and then hold your finger on the power button until it beeps twice, this will reset the system to its original settings

Why will my ps3 not workwhen conected via multi-av cable to the RCA jacks?it does work conected to a hd tv via hdmi


When you use an HDMI cable with your PS3, the system is outputting the signal in a digital format. You need to tell it to switch back to displaying in an analog format to use the RCA jacks, otherwise it won't work. To do this, turn off your PS3. Then, once it's off, press and hold down the power button on the system. After a few seconds, it will beep and reset the output signal back to analog. Just make sure only your RCA cables are plugged in when you do this. Hope this helps!

PS3 shows a blank screen when I use the RCA jacks but works well when watching DVD movies when using a HDMI cable. When using the HDMI cable the sound is distorted whe I insert a game disk


Well heres the problem when you set your ps3 to be on 1080p using a hdmi cable the rca jacks wont work. to reset it power down the console. Then hold your finger on the power button you will hear it beep twice i believe rca jacks should be working now you will have to do that everytime unless you change it with hdmi cable plugged in to where you can see.

I own a Yamaha RX-v365 and i cant figure out how to connect my PS3 to the surround sound. For some reason the HDMI cables wont work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks


As above :
Connect PS3 via HDMI to DTV/IN, Connect HDMI from out to TV's HDMI/IN. Connect TV's Optical out to amps DTV/Optical in.

2X HDMI cables and one Optical are required.

I have the V363 but yours looks the same.

Enjoy great sound :)

OH: choose the DTV input then stereo and then dolby etc .. cheers

Ps3 works on hdmi but not on rca jacks ???


Sometimes its a pain to re hook up the cords if you are stuck in HD mode and tryin to go back to Regular or Vise Versa, power off the ps3 press and hold the power button for 3 seconds. that will switch the video card back to default settings.

No picture, only sound through HDMI port


You have the video [yellow cord] on the wrong rca jack. Or a bad video cord. Should be easy to fix.

I want to hook up external speakers to my Acer H213H for when my PS3 is hooked up to it.


What method are you using to connect to the monitor?

If you are using the HDMI -> DVI adapter it does not support sound. HDMI does, but DVI does not.

If that's the way you are set up then all you need to do is use the HDMI -> DVI adapter for your video and use the regular RCA connections for audio.

You can set the video and audio settings in the PS3 with the "Display Settings" and "Sounds Settings"

That way you just use the red and white RCA ends to connect to a speaker system, the yellow won't be in use at all.

No power on PS3


I THINK YOU NEED TO BUY NEW RCA JACKS,, BECAUSE IF THE ELECTRICAL FUSE WENT FROMT HE TV TO RCA JACKS THEN ALL THE CORDS THAT PLUGS TO THE PS2 ARE SHORTED OUT.
