Turn off the system. Then touch the power button on the system front for 5-10 seconds to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
I hope this helps and good luck!

My ps3 turns on but no picture


First, how are you connecting? RCA jacks(red yellow white cords) or HDMI? If it's the RCA cords, they were known to develope shorts in the yellow cord that connects to your TV. Just try another cord. They are very cheap, and the cords from all of the other Playstations will work for the PS3. Second, try to do a picture reset on your system. Sometimes, going from HDMI, back to the RCA confuses the system because the RCA connections are NOT detected automatically, HDMI is. To do a picture reset, turn the system on, then push the power button once,(you'll hear a beep) then push and hold the power button until the system shuts off.(you should hear 2 beeps) Then when you turn the system back on, the picture will be reset. ^^ Good luck, and I hope this helps.

When i turn on my ps3 the screen loads but the xmb does not what can i do to fix this.


Are you using an HDMI cable? Or did you use that before but are now using a regular cable?

-Hold the power button until you hear the beeps; the video settings will have reset themselves.
-Plug in the regular cables (yellow, white, red)
-If you can see the image, then stop right here
-If you want to use an HDMI cable, then follow the above steps, but...
-Go to Settings-->Display Settings-->and change it to HDMI or whatever cord you are using
-Restart the PS3, using the cable you set it to use.

Yesterday, i played my PS3 on a hd tv using the hdmi cord for the first time, then when switching back to a regular tv and using the red, white , and yellow rca cord, the ps menu didn't show?


There are a few ways to remedy this situation.

1) If you have access to that HDMI port on the TV, plug it back in and switch the settings back to composite. Your screen will go black which means you did it right.

2) I've only done this once and it was a trial-by-error step. Plug it into the tv, turn it on, hold your finger over the power button to turn it off. Hold your finger over the power button when turning it on. After a few cycles it worked for me. Key thing is to keep reseting it.

The safest thing to do is get the HDMI tv to switch your settings back

How do you convert ps3 from hdmi output to regular output without hdmi cord


hook the console to the tv with your regular cord and put tv channel you want. then push and hold the power button until it beeps twice, then release. its like an auto detect thing that also works the other way round(SD to HD)

This is what happen my regular Ps3 av jacks that came with the ps3 broke so i went to game stop and got some new ones but i accidently got hdmi jacks then i used those for a day and the color was in black...


you have to do the video reset once you use HDMI the ps3 stays in HDMI mode till you do video reset

to do video reset:

when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) press and hold the power button till you hear the second beep then release and that resets the video.

hold power button............beep..............beep.......release, done.
