Just bought a ps3 secondhand but no scart lead do i need one?


You don't need a scart lead for your ps3 if you have a HD television. All ypu need is the HDMI cable (which is not included with a new PS3 but you can get very cheap from Ebay- don't bother with 'gold plated' or other 'high quality' cables as they are all the same output quality). The HDMI carries audio and video to your HD television, but you can use a scart lead for audio if and the HDMI for video if you want to use external speakers. The ps2 scart cable also works for the ps3 if you don't have a HD television. (note: a HD television is highly recommended because the quality is a hundred times better). Mine is a Samsung HD monitor which you can buy fairly cheaply.

When i turn on my ps3, the green light stays on and the tv screen doesn't even change. i changed the cords to make sure the audio/video wasn't just out. i tried to enter 'recovery mode' but it won't even...


If you have a "slim" ps3, it does not beep 3 times. Try this.
First, with the system off,plug in your old red, white, yellow cables into the tv. (make sure your tv is on the correct setting). Now, just turn on the ps3 the regular way. Did you hear the sounds it normally makes when booting up (the ps3 boot music?). If so, thats good. If you did not, check again that the tv is on the right channel, and if possible, try another set of red, white, yellow cables.

If you heard sound, but do not get a picture, turn the ps3 back off. After the red light comes on, hold your finger down on the power button for about 5 seconds. If you have a fat ps3, it will beep 3 times after a few seconds to get back to regular tv mode. If you have a slim ps3, it will beep once, then 1 more time a few seconds later. It should reset and turn back on. If your tv is on the right channel and the cables work, then you should now see a picture and you know your audio/video is working. You can now try your HDMI cable and it should prompt you to use the HDMI at this point.

Hope that helps.
Mike!

The new AV cable will not fit into the slot in the ps3. Used a regular composite cable prior to trying the new HD cable.


connect the hdmi as normal , then use the composite cable to the headset and in audio output settings enable audio multi out , that will output audio to both the hdmi and composite audio jacks .

What to do with my Ps3??


Your PS3 auto-adjusted to the HDMI Input cable, so you will need to find somewhere that you can either get an HDMI cable or a HDMI TV, so you can view the screen. Then you can hook up the A/V jacks and go to your Videa and Audio Output Settings and choose them, disabling the HDMI hookup selected. Then you'll be back in business!

Ps3 hdmi cable with adapterto tv's rca's


Just use the regular AV cords. They are 480i using an HDMI to this and that isn't going to improve picture quality.

I cant get my ps3 to play threw my sony surrond system period the tv is a sony too i have all the hdmi cables hooked up why wont ps3 play on the surround?


You can't get audio from HDMI cables. You have to connect the regular AV cables into your sound system first or you can use the digital output from the PS3 into your sound system if you've got the right cables. You'll also have to configure this through the audio settings. This should solve your problem. Let me know if it doesn't.

Ps3?


Check the couplings at either end of the cable. Sometimes these will loosen and can cause a lack of signal strength.

but its probably not the cable, its probably the ps3. HDMI cables don't really break because they are just wires, they don't have moving parts. Try connecting your PS3 to your TV with the regular cable red, white, and yellow connectors that you got when you bough the PS3. If the PS3 doesn't work with the original red, white, and yellow connectors then you know its the PS3. If the PS3 does work fine, you know its either the HDMI cable (still unlikely) or the HDMI connection on your TV or PS3 (more likely

Blu ray not playing on ps3


Could be an overheating issue.. Is there enough air circulation around the unit? Is it possibly dusty? try and perform minor servicing (use a can of compressed air incase if there's dust causing problems)

Does this happen on regular dvd's ?
