Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Display not working

I used my PS3 on my original T.V. with an HDMI cable, everything worked fine. I moved, and then used it on another T.V. with regular connection cables, and everything was fine aswell. I stopped using it for about 2-3 months, then when I try to hook it back up, it doesn't work. I used the original 3 connection cables, didn't work. Went out to buy a new 5 connection, to use on an HD T.V., still doesn't work. Anyone know what could of caused this, or how it could be fixed? The only thing I can think of, is trying to hook it back up using the HDMI cable, but that T.V. is in storage still.

How down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system 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.

Mitsubishi rear projection tv, model WS-48311 - Lost audio after moving tv and re-hooking up cables. How do I get it back?


It sounds like this TV is being used only for the PS3. We'll need to troubleshoot this through a process of elimination.

If you're using Component Input 1 and audio, try using Component Input 2 and audio instead. If this set of inputs provides working audio and video - you can stop. Or, try going back to Input 1 once more. If Input 1 now works - you may have simply made a better connection. If it doesn't - then there's probably an issue with input 1 on the TV.

If moving to Input 2 above still didn't solve the problem, you should try using a different set of audio cables between the HDFury and the TV. If it now works, the original audio cables are faulty.

You can check the HDfury setup on another HDTV with component inputs with it connected to an HDMI cable. if the HDFury wors, you know the device and all the cables work. If you do this test and it works with your PS3, then you know that the PS3 is providing good video and audio signals via HDMI. If the problem follows the PS3 - then it's the PS3 at fault. If everything works perfectly on the second TV, then there is some issue with the audio amplifier / inputs / speakers of the Mitsu TV. You could get a cheapo stereo amp and speakers - or a set of computer speakers for audio - it all depends on how much you want to spend for sound.

Good lcuk!

HMDI 1 and 3 do not work (why) ?


Since you did not mention HDMI 2, I assume you have that connected to something else, and that is working properly. The following procedure is based on that assumption.

First, turn off everything connected to the set, and the TV itself. Disconnect the HDMI cable from whatever is going to HDMI 2 (leave the TV end alone for now) and connect it to the PS3. If the PS3 shows up on the TV, the problem is most likely a bad cable. To verify, turn off the PS3 and the TV, then move the known good HDMI cable to either HDMI 1 or 3. If the PS3 works on those also, the HDMI cable you had originally connected to the PS3 is defective. I know there are some bad ones out there; there is at least one lot with a right-angle connector on one end and a straight connector on the other that has a very high failure rate.

If the PS3 does not work with a known good cable to HDMI 2, then the PS3 has a problem. Try using a component (RGB) or composite (yellow end) connection to narrow down what the issue is.

If HDMI 1 and 3 do not work with a known good cable or any input source (DVR or cable box), then the HDMI switching circuit inside the TV is defective. Since the set is "new" that would be a warranty issue.

PS3 HDMI No picture nor audio


  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 power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system 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).

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.

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


The problem is with your PS3 itself.
If it's still under warranty, take it back.

Ps3 has no video


I would first try changing the inputs if there is an HDMI cable connected the PS3 will detect it and change the output to HDMI. Make sure when you connect any HDMI cables that the power is off on ALL Units that are using HDMI. Connect the cables then power up all units. Change TV and Receiver or Amp to correct HDMI Inputs. On the PS3 go to Display Settings over to the left of the Crossbar. Select output settings and select HDMI and everything after select AUTOMATIC! Then Set your Audio (Also use Auto) and Save by pressing X.  Good Luck!

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?


Check the couplings at either end of the cable. Sometimes these will loosen and can cause a lack of signal strength.

but its probably not the cable, its probably the ps3. HDMI cables don't really break because they are just wires, they don't have moving parts. Try connecting your PS3 to your TV with the regular cable red, white, and yellow connectors that you got when you bough the PS3. If the PS3 doesn't work with the original red, white, and yellow connectors then you know its the PS3. If the PS3 does work fine, you know its either the HDMI cable (still unlikely) or the HDMI connection on your TV or PS3 (more likely
