Hold down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the systemWONT WORK - 1.gif on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.

I have a 65" Mitsubishi dlp tv. Now when I connect anything (cable box, blue ray, ps3) to my 3 Hdmi ports the screen will flash like it is trying to receive signal. The picture will show then go away over...


make this test and fix it. God bless you
  1. Verify TV is plugged-in and getting power.
  2. Verify your home's power breaker has not tripped.
  3. Verify the batteries in the remote control are good.
  4. Verify you have selected the right input for Cable/Satellite, antenna, DVD, VCR or Game Console.
  5. Verify the cable/satellite box is plugged in and getting power
  6. Verify you are getting cable/satellite in other parts of the house
  7. Verify the VCR is plugged-in,getting power, and turned on.
  8. Verify that all wires are connected to proper place
  9. Scroll through input screen to verify you are watching the correct inputs
  10. Look at the FAQ on the manufacture's website or user manual

The Basics

Before we explore more complex tv troubleshooting techniques, we need to examine the basics. First, we need to verify the TV is securely plugged into a power outlet. Don't laugh, but failure to plug-in the TV is the number one reason reported why electronics do not work. Second, you need to verify the remote has fresh batteries. This can easily be overlooked. The remote can be working one minute and not working the next, so replace the batteries Finally, verify that all cables and connections are correctly and securely attached.

How do I get the input to work for the PS3 on a a RCA truflat tv, the cords are connected properly, we tried all the inputs. now what?


If the PS3 was hooked up to another TV, perhaps with the HDMI, the PS3 needs to be reset. With the PS3 off, press and hold the Power button for approx. 10-15 seconds until it beeps again. This should provide picture/sound through the A/V cable. Hope this helps.

My samsung tv wont connect to my ps3 through the hdmi cable, the tv works if i connect my laptop or anything else to it. iv tried my ps3 on my lg an it work just fine just cant get it to work on my samsung...


When you have PS3 connected to the TV with HDMI connector, hold the ps3 power button down for 5 seconds, when u hear 2 beeps, release it and it should display standard format on the TV, thats when you'll get the option to correct the picture mode for the PS3. Hope that helps.

Have ps3 that was working fine, unhooked it from one tv to another and proceeded with holding the power button 5 seconds til it beeped twice and still have blank screen


hi, if the ps3 was working fine on the other tv and you have not dropped it or anything like that then this would point towards their being a fault with the lead of the connection in the back of the telly.

what you should do is unplug it all again and refit all the leads in the back of the ps3 making sure they are pushed in far enough then plug the lead into the back of the telly making sure you push it in far enough, then switch the telly on and then switch the ps3 on if the telly dont change to the correct channel as soon as the ps3 comes on then you need to get the telly control and put the tv on the correct channel.

now depending on how many inputs the telly has would depend on how many times you press the button on the control, the button you need to press is going to be on of the following its either av, input,source,ext,aux, or a picture of a rectangle with an arrow running from left to right, now once you have found this button make sure your ps3 is on with a game in then press the button on the tv remote then wait couple of seconds it may say something like av1 on the telly if this dont show the ps3 then press it again it should then go to av2 and keep going until you see the game on the ps3 you need to keep going until your telly is on the right input channel.
once you have done this your ps3 should be working again.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Wont sow anything on tv


make sure your cables are properly put in the correct input, also check the plug that goes into your ps3, if it still don't work see if you are putting the right video input on your tv i.e: Video1, Video2/ HDMI1,HDMI2, if problem still occurs maybe the A/V Cable is broken

We cant get a signal on the tv and it wont work


If the tv powers on correctly, then recheck all wire connections (including ac cord) are in proper placement and fit. Make sure the DVD is working properly and is connected properly to the tv. Visit the tv menu and check all settings for input signal. Be sure to have the correct "input source" set on your tv.

Sharp Aquos LC-32B20E wont display a PS3 output via HDMI


kitconnolly,

I too went through this problem.

Step 1 - Plug in your "composite" cables and the HDMI cable to the PS3. Obviously, the "composite" cable are the ones that came with the system. You need to start with them as the default connector.

Step 2 - After connecting the "composite" cable and the HDMI cable to the PS3, connect the other ends to your TV.

Step 3 - Power on your PS3

Step 4 - Select display settings-->video output settings

Step 5 - Change from the current video cables to HDMI. (Your tv has different inputs. When you switch to HDMI in the PS3, you will have to switch your TV to the HDMI input that it is connected to, to get a picture)

Step 6 - Be quick, the PS3 will display a "test" for 30 seconds. You need to switch your tv to the correct HDMI input and press "X" on your controller to accept the change.

Let me know how this works for you.

PS3 WONT WORK SOS I NEED HELP


Well the first thing is you should check that the AV cables are properly plugged into the TV and console and that the TV is set for the proper input. If that doesn't work try to hold the power button down for a few moments, that will reset the PS3's sound/video output to the default settings.
That failing you can always try a new set of cables.

If these things fail it's possible your video card is bad, your tv's input may be not receiving a signal properly(e.g. not working) or some other flaw in the PS3 hardware.
