There are RCA outputs on the PS3 that will allow you to connect to an older non HD TV. If you do not have RCA (that is the yellow, red and white cables used for video and audio) inputs on your TV, you will need an adapter (most likely a coaxial to RCA adapter found at radio shack, walmart, target, etc.).

Hope this helps,
Bill

SOURCE: my ps3 doesnt show any screen on my regular tv anymore !!!

You will need to change the display settings back to normal for a standard TV. Obviously a little tricky if it's already hooked up to the TV that won't display a picture! If you do a manual (or is it called total reset?) this should revert it back to standard TV settings. To perform the reset hold the power button down for 10 seconds (I think it's 10 anyway) or until you here a couple of beeps and it should reset the display settings to it's default.

Hope that helps? Sorry I cant be more exact on the reset details.

SOURCE: had my ps3 connected to

Turn off your PS3. Now press and HOLD the 'On' button on the PS3 itself (not on the controller). It will beep and reset the connection type. I believe it will use HDMI if available, if not then it'll switch back to the A/V setting (for older televisions)

I connected my playstation 3 to another tv and it


If you attached your PS3 to an HDMI capable TV it asks you if you want to switch to HD Mode.

However, once you attach it back to a regular TV you get no picture.

Follow these steps to resolve:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can flick the power switch in the back then back on again.

2. With your PS3 connected to the TV and the TV on, press and hold the power button.

3. Hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release.

4. Wait a few seconds and the PS3 logo should appear.

How to hook psp3 to regular tv


The ps3 has 2 ways to connect to your tv. It has HDMI output and a regular video output. The regular video output is a yellow RCA connector with a red and white audio connector. You should have gotten this cable with the ps3. If your tv does not have a video or AUX input a regular vcr will. Connect the yellow, red and white from your ps3 to the same on your tv or vcr and select that input on your tv or vcr.

I connected my sons ps3 to our new hd tv and now it wont connect to his tv as it only seems to be using the hdmi output which his tv does not support


Hi,

Turn the PS3 off and make sure it is just showing a red light,

Then, with the PS3 connected to the TV with the regular (not HDMI) connections, press and hold the power button.

As soon as you see the screen flicker, release the power button.

That should do it!

My PS3 unit is 2 years old: Slow moving lines on game screen.


Easiest way to figure out what the problem is by taking your PS3 to another TV with a different set of cables.

Maybe you've got a freind or family member with a system.

If you get the same problem, then it's the GPU chip on the motherboard.

Let me know what happens.

Blue ray disc on Ps3 does not look high definition


If your TV has a 120 mhz setting, turn it off. My blu-rays (and some regular DVDs) were having problems as well, but this solved it. Basically, the 120 mhz setting is just too good, even for a PS3.

The setting may have other names, but whatever it's called on your TV, it's responsible for providing extra scaling/processing from the source (your PS3).

Also, make sure your PS3 is NOT set to double-scale. "Normal" is just fine.
