Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

I have a 27 inch syphonic flat screen tv and I'm trying to get it on an input channel in order to play my Xbox 360


I dont have a 360 so cant be 100% sure this will be helpful. i have a PS3 and to get it to run on HD after using it on SCART, you need to plug both the HDMI and SCART leads in simultaneously and go into the system visual settings and change it to a HDMI port.


after this you need to jsut unplug the SCART.


im hoping its a similar issue but just swapping the PS3 menu's with the 360 one.

Got to settings in the PS3 Crossbar and go to display settings. The first one should say video output settings, click on it. It should say your connection type is HDMI. Select component/D Terminal and hit change. The screen should go blank. During this time plug it in to your other t.v by the scart. It should say "Can you read this screen?" hit yes and there you go. To go back to HDMI do the same.

The PS3 switches on, lights up, drive and disc drive working but No Signal on TV. Saw HDMI cable solution previously posted. Does that work for SCART also?


yes just change hdmi for the word scart
  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).

It's a bit of a pain as you'll have to re-establish your initial internet setup ( this is where keeping old passwords, etc, comes in handy ! ), but the only solution that will work is by resetting your PS3 to ' first time use ' ( not back to factory condition though ).
This may be an unwanted slog but if you've accidently changed the settings and can't remember how or why at least you'll know the initial sttings should work.
If you don't want to do this, try going to the screen settings and adjust one at a time ( loading a game in between ), also if you have a scart lead fitted ( as well as the HDMI lead ) make sure it's in the audio out and not in ' video ' ( the audio out will be a circuit between an audio scart socket on your tv and the red and white leads going back to your audio output device : active subwoofer, etc , the yellow lead plugs into the scart lead from the console via a plug point adaptor which goes straight into the scart on the tv set ).
AV Multi Out should not have to be performed as the leads out devices are the only ones which should be pressed to set.
Hope this helps.

Adjust the system's video output settings. Select the best output settings for the TV in use.

1. Check the resolution supported by your TV.
Resolution (video mode) varies depending on the TV type. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the TV.

2. Select (Display Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.

3. Select [Video Output Settings].

4. Select the connector type on your TV.
Resolution (video mode) varies depending on the type of connector used.

Input connector on the TV Supported video modes (NTSC region) *1 Supported video modes (PAL region) *1
HDMI 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 480p 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 576p
Component / D-Terminal *2 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 480p / 480i 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 576p / 576i
Composite / S Video *3 480i 576i
AV MULTI / SCART *4 480p / 480i 576p / 576i
*1 The video mode options vary depending on the region where the PS3™ system was purchased. In North America, Asia and other NTSC regions, 480i video mode is displayed as [Standard (NTSC)]. In Europe and other PAL regions, 576i video mode is displayed as [Standard (PAL)]. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the product.

*2 D-terminal is a connector type used mainly in Japan. The resolutions supported by D1-D5 are as follows:
D5: 1080p / 720p / 1080i / 480p / 480i
D4: 1080i / 720p / 480p / 480i
D3: 1080i / 480p / 480i
D2: 480p / 480i
D1: 480i

*3 Composite is the connector used to connect the AV cable that is supplied with the PS3™ system. S VIDEO is a format mainly used in Japan.

*4 AV MULTI is a format mainly used in Japan. SCART is a format mainly used in Europe. If [AV MULTI / SCART] is selected, the screen allowing you to select the type of output signal will be displayed.


5. Change video output settings.
Change the resolution for the video output. Depending on the connector type selected in step 4, this screen may not be displayed.

6. Set the resolution.
Select all resolutions supported by the TV in use. Video will automatically be output at the highest resolution possible for the content you are playing from among the selected resolutions.*
* The video resolution is selected in order of priority as follows: 1080p > 1080i > 720p > 480p/576p > Standard (NTSC:480i/PAL:576i).
If [Composite / S Video] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed.
If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically adjust the resolution (the HDMI device must be turned on). In this case, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed.

7. Set the TV type.
Select the type of TV in use. Set when only SD resolution (NTSC:480p / 480i, PAL: 576p / 576i) is to be output such as when [Composite / S Video] or [AV MULTI / SCART] is selected in step 4.

8. Check your settings.
Confirm that the image displayed is at the correct resolution for the TV. You can go back to a previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the button.

9. Save your settings.
The video output settings are saved on the PS3™ system. You can continue on to set audio output settings. For details on audio output, see (Settings) > (Sound Settings) > [Audio Output Settings] in this guide.

Changed HDMI settings and can't now see image on screen


I did the same thing, if you hold the hdmi select button on the player (not the remote) while ejecting and inserting a dvd, it will reset so you are able to access the setup menu again.
