Cannot get PS3 to work with AV television using AV leads.

Cannot get PS3 slim to work with AV television using old TV. When we connect the console using AV leads (red/yellow/white) we can't get a picture. We know the TV works fine because my old PS2 works fine. Any suggestions much appreciated. Thanx

SOURCE: PS3 No signal to the TV

I'm having similar problems. I had my PS3 on pause, whent out for a couple hours, came back to find a weird fuzzy screen. My PS3 had froze, so I turned it off. I turned it on a couple minutes later, and the green light came on, however, my controllers would not connect, no image was popping up and it also wouldnt turn off unless I flicked the switch on the back. After contacting Sony, they told me it could be an overheating issue. If it has been less than a year, they will replace it, NOT FIX IT. Which is great and all, but unfortunately I am about to lose the countless hours I've put into assassins creed, skate, call of duty 4 and motorstorm.

HOWEVER. If your PS3 is still "functioning properly" except for no signal, turn the power off on the back, turn it back on, press and hold the power button on the front untill you hear the second beep, let go, give it a couple seconds, turn it off from the back and then back on, hold it till the second beep again. Good luck.

P.S. I recomend getting the extra cooling fan for it, and saving game data on another card (SD) incase crap like this happens.

Slim PS2s have to holes on back left and right. The far edges one lower right hand side of the power plug and another on the upper left side of the fan exhaust. Hard not to notice. I've never actually noticed they were screw holes I figured they were just... holes. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: AV Cable Problems for PS3

I am not completely sure that this will help you, however try doing a "factory reset".
You accomplish this by first (1) having the PS3 being off (2) hold down the power button on the front of the PS3. It will beep once when you turn it on and then a second time. When you hear it the second time, let go. See what happens.

Sometimes if you connect your consoles video a different way such as S-Video, Component or HDMI, your console remembers those settings and saves them causing many individuals to turn their console on and there is no video.

I hope this gives you somewhere to start.

Doesnt show up on the television. It does turn on. turned playstation on and off, tried different connections, still nothing


It is likely that the problem is your AV cable. This cable has one plug that connects to your Playstation 3 and a red plug, a white plug, and a yellow plug that connects to your television. Follow these steps to get your PS3 up and running again
  1. Unplug your AV cable from your PS3 and T.V.
  2. Plug in your AV cable to your PS3 and T.V.
When plugging your AV cable back into the T.V. make sure that the red plug is in the red socket, the yellow plug is in the yellow socket and the white plug is in the white socket.
If problems persist try using a different AV cable.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv


The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    I get no picture on the tv when i turn the ps3 on. i have tried changing scart leads and scart sockets in the tv with no luck.


    put your old av cables in you got with the ps3. turn system off, turn it back on using the button on the console not the control but hold the button down until you hear it beep once, keep holding it down until you hear a second beep, this will reset the ps3 back to the av outputs. you can change it to scart afterwards in the video menu settings

    Psp3 no picture on tv tried new usb lead


    So you are using this cable to connect to the TV? On this cable is there only a red, yellow & white connector? This is known as an S-Video or AV cable.

    Can you make sure you are connecting it in the right part of your TV. Once connecting it you will need to select the AV input on your TV or you may need to tune the TV into that input (depending on your TV age/model)

    The best connection for the PS3 would be the HDMI cable which is one lead with one connector at either end (though this is for HD TVs only)

    Hope this helps

    Put ps3 on new tv does not pick up lead as we used hdmi on old tv


    If possible, hook the PS3 to the old TV, and then select the AV Cable option for both video and sound. Then hook it to the new TV, which should show the display at 480p. From there, you can adjust the settings to whatever you would like.

    I have the same problem with my Samsung LE46A656 A1F Full HD


    Hi,

    If it was doing it on your old console then its the TV not the PS3.

    Causes: HDMI cable (Replace cable), HDMI socket on TV (Get it repaired), If it happens on all HDMI inputs then the video board maybe faulty, Interference - location of PS3 to other equipment.

    The first thing to do is move everything else away from your TV except for the PS3, now factory reset the Samsung TV and make sure your firmware is up to date my records show that an update came out in May for your TV, also factory reset the PS3 and setup the HDMI video settings using the wizrad in the PS3, now connect the PS3 through all HDMI inputs to see if its one input or all, if all inputs are the same then the TV maybe faulty.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Thanks

    PS3 doesn't work with tv anymore


    did you move the ps3 while it was on. If you did the reset for AV should repair both the AV problem and your HDMI as well. Shoot me a message back if it works or doesn't.


    Thx
