Re: ps3

Depending on your television, if it's a tube then your display settings should be at 480i and no higher. Sounds like you set it at 720 or 1080 and your TV can't handle the resolution. You need to go to the PS3 main screen (turn on without game in it) and select the "settings" ( might be called "system settings", 2nd or 3rd icon from the left), a sub menu will show up and look for the 'display settings' heading and change it back to 480i. That should do it. Reset the PS3 just to make sure the new settings take effect.

Did you have the setting for picture set to hd on another tv beforehand? If so, plug it back into a high quality tv and change the setting back to a normal television

For the ps3 if i change to HD settings, how could i change back?

  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps32_bing.gif will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all

Cant see the screen

Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Sound but no picture on PS3 using AV3/4

if it's happening with your ps2 and your ps3 on teh same tv, try it on a different tv. if you're getting sound but no picture, tehn it's something with your cables or your tv. restting the display setting should get your picture back up. make sure the system is in standby and then hold down teh power button. it will turn green and beep, then flash green and beep again. it should brng up a picture. if not, check your component cables, especailly if it works with the original cables.

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.

Ps3 not playing blu ray on my samsung LCD

Change the frame rate on your tv to 60hd, that should solve it. Basically, your tv might be set to theater mode which is playing 24hd..
