Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Unable to see picture

So i read through lots of these posts and my PS3 still doesnt work. I've tried hdmi cables, the regular av cables and the psyclone 5 wire one. Nothing works. I've also tried doing the resetting thing many times. I only get sound, no picture. This PS3 works with my moniter, but i cant get it to see picture on my TV. Could it be that its a white PS3 from singapore? Im using it in the US

    I have a 46" in my living room that plays at 1080i, and i have a 32" in my room that plays 1080p. Now I have had my PS3 set up on the 46" since I bought it, but ever since I hooked it up to my new 32" tv now it won't work on my 46"....it is a pretty stupid problem, and to be honest it is really getting annoying. sometimes it works on the 46", sometime it don't. but it always works on the 32" and always worked on the 46" before...I don't understand...WTF

IF YOUR UNABLE TO GET A PICTURE USING AN AV CABLE IT MAY BE BECAUSE THE CONSOLE IS TOO HOT! MINE WAS IN THE CABINET BY MY SKY BOX ONCE I PULLED IT OUT I STARTED TO WORK!

Is your PS3 in a corner or something? Because mine was and my PS3 didn't have any picture either til I moved it into an open area where the vents could breath and never had the problem again.

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.


What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.

My plastation 3 works when i hook it up through the hdmi cable but not the regular cables that come with the consol. is there a setting i need to change?the cables are not broken nor are the hookups on my...


Ok, you need to reset the PS3 back to standard video settings by doing the following :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (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 the display to initialize.

Hope this helps

I have ps3 but only a normal tv not hd how do i connect


first if you do not have one you will need an HDMI cable, depending where you get it, it can cost you anywhere from $15-$165 it doesnt matter which one you get they all work, now if you dont got one an hdtv is next with a hdmi hookup,

easy way, have your ps3 on, then plig hdmi to back of ps3, then go to the sisplay settings and change it from AV component to HDMI and there you go.

harder way, ps3 off, hdmi in, av component not plugged in, reset ps3 till you get the picture on your HDTV

What to do with my Ps3??


Your PS3 auto-adjusted to the HDMI Input cable, so you will need to find somewhere that you can either get an HDMI cable or a HDMI TV, so you can view the screen. Then you can hook up the A/V jacks and go to your Videa and Audio Output Settings and choose them, disabling the HDMI hookup selected. Then you'll be back in business!

Console starts up and I can hear but shows no picture.


make sure video cable is plugged in all the way on back of ps3. the a/v cable is little tricky. it looks like its plugged all the way but its not. also if doesnt work, if u have hdmi cable use it then go to display settings, then connetions. set it up as av cable connection then it will ask about audio - av rca connetions. and save. now its set up as av cables and then when u use hdmi it will automatically set up hdmi.

Ps3 hdmi cable with adapterto tv's rca's


Just use the regular AV cords. They are 480i using an HDMI to this and that isn't going to improve picture quality.

Ps3 hdmi-av


i currently have the exact same problem...i always play HDMI but i went home from college for thanksgiving and wanted to play on a regular AV jack TV, hooked up, and have no picture whatsoever...and i think it's because of the settings on the PS3 since it's set to send out an HD signal...Well i found this straight from Playstation3.com, on the support/troubleshooting section

"
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution."
Hope it helps =)
