PS3 conection cables

I have been using my PS3 w/ HDMI cable and works great. I need to move it to a different room and the TV does not have an HDMI connection so I tried the other cable (just thr standard yellow red white RCA's), just like the one for the PS2 and I get nothing? MUst the TV have an HDMI or Compnonet connections to operate?

    Interesting, I have EXACTLY the same problem. I moved the PS3 to a TV with no HDMI and got NO SIGNAL out of the video/audio cable.
    Took it back to my HD tv and used the same video/audio cable and NOTHING. Then plugged the HDMI cable in and viola! Everything worked.
    Is there a setup that we are missing to get the Video/audio cable to work?

    I am in the same situation as these other users above. Whoever this was responding to the problem I feel wasn't very knowledgeable in this matter at all being that the "answer" that was posted was most definately not helpful to say the least. I believe someone who is experienced and genuinely informative about this subject should at least view this question not someone with a useless, quick fix response. I would rate this response but there isn't an option for extremely dissatisfied.

    Same issue, only HDMI works no matter what TV I put it on RCA, Video/Audio and RCA, Hi Def does not work only HDMI, I have gone to the settings of the PS3 and switched it using HDMI put it on the other TV and it does not work. It is like Once the HDMI output gets a signal it will always look for that and not switch back. Maybe a full reboot with it hooked up to the RCA Blind? anybody know how?

Suggest using HDMI or Component Video if you can. They provide the best picture quality. Should be able to use RCAs if need to.

Try switching the TV Mode. TV may have multiple modes if you have multiple connections.

How to fix issues whith component outputs on haier hlh26atbb 26 in. lcd ?


When you make the connection with HDMI are you changing the source or input key on the television to activate HDMI port? If you don't activate the corresponding source you connect to and leave the TV in the TV mode, you won't actually see the device you are connecting. It's possible the TV does not support the 1080P from your PS3.

No PS3 signal on TV using HMDI or Component Parts


It could be that either HDMI port could be bad or you might want to try a different hdmi cable. The cable could be bad.

Cant get output ps3 on hdmi cable


  • Make sure the system is off.
  • Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds - until you hear the second beep.
    This resets the video settings to defaults (standard video output).
    Power up the PS3 again and it should auto-detect the hdmi at this point.

    If that does not work use the original audio/video cable that came with the system, power it on, then adjust the video settings and try the hdmi cable again.

    Connecting Ps3 with philips tv (full hd) when i got hd cable in, and click to switch so the ps3 uses hd to show things and i than switch over to the channel i plugin the hdmi cabel it gives blac kscreen


    If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.

    I have the same problem with my Samsung LE46A656 A1F Full HD


    Hi,

    If it was doing it on your old console then its the TV not the PS3.

    Causes: HDMI cable (Replace cable), HDMI socket on TV (Get it repaired), If it happens on all HDMI inputs then the video board maybe faulty, Interference - location of PS3 to other equipment.

    The first thing to do is move everything else away from your TV except for the PS3, now factory reset the Samsung TV and make sure your firmware is up to date my records show that an update came out in May for your TV, also factory reset the PS3 and setup the HDMI video settings using the wizrad in the PS3, now connect the PS3 through all HDMI inputs to see if its one input or all, if all inputs are the same then the TV maybe faulty.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Thanks

    My ps3 only works with hdmi cables?


    Did you try holding down the Power button until you heard 3 beeps? It is not uncommon for the video output to exceed the resolution of different television. This hard reset feature was added to troubleshoot such a problem, factory resetting the video settings.

    Hdmi connection doesnt work on ps3


    By you saying that you have a new cable & tv, I assume you had the console conected tru composite before (red, white & yellow rca cable). This is what you need to do: Connect the PS3 to the tv with HDMI cable only, do not use the composite cable at the same time, reset your PS3 by pressing and holding the power button, when the power is off, for about 7 to 10 secconds, it would cicle from power off, on, then off again, it would also give you 2 sets of beeps, after the power is off, turn your tv on, make sure you select HDMI input on it, then turn your PS3 on, the console would set itself to the best resolution available on your tv. Give it a try!
