Playstation3 has been converted to play 3d but now wont project an image does it require a hdmi cable


OK sometimes people put the HDMI cable to the PS3 and it changes the settings. Try to reset the ps3. Turn the ps3 off with just the red light showing. The hold the power button. when it beeps and the light changes keep holding it. then you with hear 2 to 3 beep right after another. When you do let the button go. The does a manual reset and whatever cables you have connected at the time should work. If this doesnt then your video card on the board might be out. I hope this helps you out.

How do i change my sony playstation3 from high definition to normal television


Hold the ON/OFF button on the system while its turned on. It will turn on, then back off, and beep a few times. Thats a soft reset. Should do the trick and wont hurt anything. Wont lose anything either.

Playstation3 wont turn on red flashing light then a double beep then turn off


Unplug the power cable from the back of the PS3, wait around 30 minutes...this will allow the unit to cool down. Plug the cable back in and try to boot the unit again. If you still have a red light, call PlayStation. If you're still under warranty, they'll send you a new unit at no cost to you. The problem may be the Hard Disk. This happened to me and PlayStation was very easy to deal with.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony
