SOURCE: A/V will not work on PS3

Their are a coulpe of different A/V settings within the A/V settings menu. Probably the easiest way may be to plug up your A/V cable and switch the TV to that input then turn the system on with the button on the front. Then trun it off with that button, by holding it down untill the system goes off. Then push the power button down again and hold it down, then the system will turn back on and beep at u, continue to hold it down, until it beeps again(5sec. maybe). This resets the system to factor settings, but do not tell it to master reset or what ever it asks you to reset on the screen when it returns, or it will mess up your saved files. Some of your saved games will not reload if you accept the reset.

Try to reset your video. Make sure the red light is on in the front. Hold down the power button continuously until the system turns itself off. You should hear two beeps. If you have problems give us a call at 1-888-389-3038. We are a repair company and I can have one of our techs walk you through this. You can also check out www.wiredextreme.com.

Try connecting the PS3 to your TV through a different port. For example, if you are using HDMI1 on your PS3, try HDMI2 or HDMI3.

Try a different cable. If you have a friend with a working cable try that.

Try a different output on the PS3. For example, if you are currently using the HDMI port, see if the standard composite or component output will work.

While convenient to plug things into an AV reciever, I find that just adds another link in the chain of devices that could go wrong.

Good luck.

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

    My playstation 3 turns on but the av multi out doesnt work so i cant see or hear anything.


    Try resetting the display by doing the following:

    Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

    Step 2 Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

    Step 3 Wait for your PS3 to start

    Hope this helps

    PS3 no longer communicating with TV


    All: Try this -

    P
    erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
    1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
    2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
    3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
    NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

    As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

    If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
    With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

    If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

    1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
    3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
    4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
    5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
    6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
    7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.

    Ps3 wont show up on tv


    Hey i just posted i have the same problem as you do but then I checked the SONY PS3 website and it solved my problem. Try resetting your video output. I'll paste what it says on the PS3 website but if that doesn't solve your problem go to the website. They have a bunch of troubleshooting solutions for this problem...



    If while manually changing the Video Output Settings, the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, you may need to perform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.

    1. Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
    2. Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.
    3. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
    4. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).
