Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

TV Malfunction after use of PS3

My brother brought home a ps3 today and asked my assistance in connecting it. He bought it off a friend without the plug to connect to the TV. I saw that the slot looked the same as my ps2 slot, so I took it from my ps2 and inserted it into the ps3 and to my surprise it fitted perfectly. After trying a different array of inputs i saw that i was getting no signal, just a black screen so i decided to remove it for good just as i did, i heard the TV turn off, since then my TV won't turn back on. The PS3 wasn't on for more than a good 15minutes so i doubt the TV got fried off the 15minutes of start menu, or maybe it did. Any advice, Diagnosis?

Any will be greatly appreciated the TV in question is the TV used in the living room, so as I speak there is a bounty out for my head.

Yikes, that sounds like you are in trouble---probably not the best thing to do.. well the only thing that i can suggest is to disconnect all the cables from the tv but unplug it first and even remove cable then rescrew it on after a few seconds.. wait for about a min, then just connect the tv back to the cable box only as you would if you didn't have anything else to connect.. see if that helps.. if not i would suggest also going to the manufacturere site and see if you could get some online assistance.. if your tv turns back on then i would advise buying the cord needed for the ps3---ebay is the best bet.. good luck.. let me know if this helps...d

How to put playstation where it will show on a regular TV that does not have HD my son took his playstation over his friends who had a HD TV when he brought it back home and hooked it on same TV they had...


With the ps3 already on standby, hold the standby button with the television on the correct channel until the display shows, it will take quite some time. Then change your setup accordingly.

I have just recently bought a second hand PS£


Ohhhhh u got there a problem i had months ago. PS3 only gives u one output signal at a time, that means either u use it hdmi or u use it the normal rca way.Bad thing is that the ppl at sony didnt think of this kind of situation.
What u need to do is go to ur friend's house and use his hd tv to config ur ps3 to the correct output signal(rca), both on video and audio. If u bought the ps3 from ur friend, he should know how to do it, since he had to config it to hd in the first place. Be sure to probe it with the config u are going to use at home :)

PS3 image keeps scrolling and is in black and white


I am an Australian ( 240v) and I took my PS3 to the Caribbean (110v - same as the US) and it worked fine as far as power concerned. However as I had the PS3 set to work on my TV back home (PAL) when I took it over there & plugged it in (NTSC) I had a similar problem. I fixed it like this: when the PS3 is turned off hold down the power button for 15-30 seconds it will reset the PS3's settings to defult and it should work on the system that it's connected to. Hope it helps

My playstation 3 wont work on my tv


use your own cords but it is broken inside your tv. the ps3 is not the problem its not the cords it is simply the tv were u insert the cord. something may have yanked it out fast and disconnected it. my solution would be to connect it to the back of a dvd player and then put the tv on video mode that is how i play at my dads but at my moms it works fine on some tvs but not on one because my puppy pulled out the cord to hard.

Ps3 blew up a 2nd tv


Make sure that you are not plugging either the game system or the TV into a surge supressor device or any other equipment that may allow you to have reversed the polarity of the AC current coming into the equipment from the wall outlet. Remember, most modern electronics equipment has a "hot" ground power supply. That means there is the possibility that you are sending current thru the ground return path of the items you connect in this way.

PS3 - HDMI to SD change issues


While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.Good Luck!
