When it is in standby and normal cable is fitted, when you switch it on hold down the power button for over 4 seconds, it runs the optimal settings page. hope this helps

Hooked up hd cable to ps3 and tv, now have no sound


Be sure to check the cables. You may need to replace them.

Try the cables with another component, if possible.

Also, try using AV cables to verify that it is not the TV and to simply troubleshoot:

To get back to default AV settings:

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until it shuts off again.


Once you have verified that AV is working, turn off console, take out AV cables.


Plug in HDMI cable and turn system back on. Switch TV input to HDMI and it will ask you if you would like to use the HDMI cables, select yes again and verify.


If you cannot get sound, again, check the cables..


If new cables do not work, then your HDMI output is going bad, not from use rather normal wear and tear of the motherboard.


To get the best non HD picture, you will need to get some 'component' cables, rather than the standard AV (red, white, yellow).


Good luck

No video or audio output. Normal TV not a HD one. Tried new Componet HD AV cable but still no joy.


Check the HD switch on the A/V cord. Make sure it's not set to HD or it won't work. Then try another TV. Then call MS.

My xbox 360 turns on fine but it won't show on my tv


Im presuming you have check all the cables settings...
and still just audio , It requires that the G.P.U. be Preheated
and seated ( clamp down) and then Burn in A.K.A. x clamp mod.
the dead video problem needs a little more then the regular
x clamp mod , so make sure who ever dose it has a good
success rate .

My ps3 has no picture or sound...


if there's absolutely nothing on the TV screen, then most probably the video output is different then the cables you are using (eg: video output HD and you are using AV cables). Are you sure your TV is set correctly? like using HD cable you have to choose HDMI or AV cable choose AV. Anyway, When the PS3 is on, turn it off by pressing and holding the power button on the front (so the light turns red) you will hear beep sound ( I can't remember how many but not once). This should reset the Video output to AV. Swithch to AV cables (if you're using HD). Usually if the system is set to AV output and you switch to HDMI cables, the system recognizes that and swithches to HD output. But if it's set to HD output and you are using AV cables, it doesn't switch back; that is what my system does.

PS3 Scart / HD


Turn it off with the "hard" switch in the back. Then turn it back on with the switch while pressing the power button on the front for 10 secs, this should reset your display settings.

Can only get snow on tv screen


Try Changing the AV cable from HDTV to normal TV unless your TV is HD the cable Setting on HDTV will not work. You have to turn off the system and then change the switch. Then turn on your system.

If this doesnt fix your problem then Either of two things has happend your AV cable has gone bad or the chip that enables the AV cord inside the XBOX has bit the dust. If this is the case you will need to contact MS.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!
