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.

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.

Toshiba 32AV500U HDMI issues


The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.

Ps3 trouble


ok, i got it working... Ok...your problem is probably that when you're using it on the HDTV...you have the resolution set to an HD one (720p, 1080i, 1080P). A normal TV cannot display these. While it's connected to the HDTV,Before you connect it to your normal tv, you have to switch it back to 480i or 480p otherwise, your regular tv wont show a picture. So go to settings, display settings, and uncheck 720p, 1080i, 1080p. It will ask you if these are the settings you choose (and it's going to look funny on your HDTV) Accept the settings and turn it off. When you connect it to your Regular TV, you should now see a picture. Hope this helps!
