Please try these steps :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Hi,i got a ps3 connected to sony bravia 22'inch my ps3 wont display anything in the hdmi mode .the power is on but no display ..i checkd the cables to be correctly fitted but no use..plz help me


Sometimes a system restore will fix this problem. Make sure that if you have more than 1 HDMI port on your TV that you have your TV tuned to the right HDMI port#. NOTE: A system restore will delete all saved game data. I recommend backing up your console onto a usb flash drive. GOOD Luck!

My samsung tv wont connect to my ps3 through the hdmi cable, the tv works if i connect my laptop or anything else to it. iv tried my ps3 on my lg an it work just fine just cant get it to work on my samsung...


When you have PS3 connected to the TV with HDMI connector, hold the ps3 power button down for 5 seconds, when u hear 2 beeps, release it and it should display standard format on the TV, thats when you'll get the option to correct the picture mode for the PS3. Hope that helps.

My playstation wont transmit a picture to my television


Make sure everything is connected correctly. Then, turn on the PS3 from putting your finger on the "power button" but HOLD IT DOWN. After a few seconds it will beep at you a few times. Check the TV. If the video OUT settings got messed up somehow, it should now display picture on whatever cables you are using "HDMI" or "Composite" . Hope this helps!

Problem connecting my PS3 to my Sharp Aquos LC-C3237U LCD TV


Your PS3 set itself above the max resolution your LC-C3237U. Most likely the PS3 is doing 1080P, but the highest the Sharp can do is 1080i. So do this:

1. Connect PS3 to TV (you can use the current cable or analog cable)
2. Turn on TV and set input to port PS3 is on.
3. Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
4. 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.

Sharp Aquos LC-32B20E wont display a PS3 output via HDMI


kitconnolly,

I too went through this problem.

Step 1 - Plug in your "composite" cables and the HDMI cable to the PS3. Obviously, the "composite" cable are the ones that came with the system. You need to start with them as the default connector.

Step 2 - After connecting the "composite" cable and the HDMI cable to the PS3, connect the other ends to your TV.

Step 3 - Power on your PS3

Step 4 - Select display settings-->video output settings

Step 5 - Change from the current video cables to HDMI. (Your tv has different inputs. When you switch to HDMI in the PS3, you will have to switch your TV to the HDMI input that it is connected to, to get a picture)

Step 6 - Be quick, the PS3 will display a "test" for 30 seconds. You need to switch your tv to the correct HDMI input and press "X" on your controller to accept the change.

Let me know how this works for you.

My PS3 wont start up. when i turn it on i get noting no sound or image .


Check your HDMI (looks like USB connetion) Connection or your Composite video connection (yellow, red, white connections.) Make sure they are correct and tight on both your TV and PS3.
Most common connection to use 1st is the Composite video connetions. Yellow is your Video display; Red and White are your Sound!

Good Luck.

if you have a SD TV. ( standard display, not HD ) but chose the HD display option on system settings you wont see picture but hear sound. and same goes if you've chosen SD display but own a HD TV. so try to reset your system somehow or take it in for inspection.
