My coby lcd tv won't work for my ps3 what wires would I need to make it work


You will need an HDMI cable. Please follow the below instructions.

Instructions

  1. Before you begin installation:
    • Turn OFF the PS3TM system using the [MAIN POWER] switch (in the back)
    • Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet
    • Turn OFF and unplug the TV
  2. Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PS3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor. ps3_8_hdmiconnecttv.gif
  3. Plug in the AC power cord by connecting one end of the AC power cord into the [AC IN] port on the back of the PS3 system and the other end into an electrical outlet. ps3_11_connectacpower.gif
  4. Press the [MAIN POWER] switch on the rear of the system. A red light should appear on the front of the system indicating power is available.
  5. Turn on the PS3 by pressing the touch-sensitive [On/Off button] on the system front. The red light will turn green, indicating the PS3 is now turned on.
    Note: The blue light will also appear on the front of the system if you have a disc inserted.
  6. Plug in the TV and turn the power on. The PS3 should detect the HDMI display device automatically. When prompted, "Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton. (You may need to press the PS button on the center of the SIXAXISTM controller to enable the controller first).
  7. The next screen will ask, "Do you want to automatically switch to the optimal setting?" Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton.
  8. On the next screen, the PS3 will display the maximum resolution capable on the display (i.e., 1080p). The screen will display, "Do you accept the setting?" You will have 30 seconds to confirm your answer.2 Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton to save your settings. You have now completed the HDMI installation.

Ps3 remote wont work


you can try to reset the power switch in the back with the ps3 controller connect via the usb cable.
After you turn main switch in the rear on try using the controller's "PS" button to power on the system. If this does not work then power on the console using the button in front then use the PS button to sync....watching the top of the controller for recognition.

IF YOU ARE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH YOUR PS3 THE LAST THING TO DO IS TO TRY AND BOOT INTO DIAGNOSTIC SCREEN AND CHOOSE "RESTORE PS3 SYSTEM" or "REBUILD FILE SYSTEM". This can erase all saved data but is a good starting point for problem solving your PS3 before sending it to me for repair :-)

My ps3 won't work with rca jacks


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

When I turn on my ps3 system on, there is no signal on my T.V.


With the system off, hold down the power button on your PS3 for 10 seconds. This should set everything back to factory defaults. If that doesn't work, try holding it down until you hear the beep that sounds when the system turns on. Keep it held until you hear 2 more beeps, and release it instantly. If it doesn't work after that, then its going to be a problem with either the power supply, meaning that its missing some off the voltages which powers on the system properly or the main board is bad, at that point you would have to call Sony Tech Support.

Cant get it to go back to av


You have to reset the display setting and this is how you do it. make sure ther is no disc in the system, turn off ps3 in the back (main power switch), turn that switch back on and you should have a red power light, hold the power button, you will hear a beep right away and the a 2nd beep a few seconds later and then let go of the button. The light should be green, if it still does not work try the steps 1-2 more times. If this does not work, you will need to cal 1-800-345-7669 to get your ps3 serviced

No main menu, just wavy lines with sony entertainment


This is a hard reset of the system, used when there is a catastrophic error etc. I have trawled these kind of sights and the main concensus is to ensure you have a back up of all important data. I experienced the same issue but the method above was advised by my games shop.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


Try Accessing the Ps3 Recovery Menu
Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear 2 consecutive (quick) beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button
You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the ps button
The recovery menu will pop up

Recovery menu
* restart system
* restore default settings
* restore file system
*rebuild database
*restore ps3
*system update
Now I was not sure which one to choose. I clicked restart system and that did NOT work so I clicked restore ps3 and lost everything but it DEFINITELY WORKED!!
