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.

    Turn on ps3 i get no picture or sound then i cant turn it off i have to unplug it whats wrong with it?


    • Check your HDMI Cable

      HDMI is available in several versions. The PS3 is compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type A" and "Type B" connectors. The PS3 uses the 19-pin Type A connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
      The HDMI cable is not included with the PS3.

    • Cable adaptors (i.e., HDMI to DVI converters)

      If you are using an adaptor (i.e., HDMI to DVI converter), try bypassing this adaptor and connecting the HDMI cable directly into the display.


    • Check the adaptorTry an alternate cable

    • Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HDMI setup and/or equipment.


    • Some older HDTVs may have issues with the copy protection protocols (HDCP) causing the handshake not being communicated between the TV and the PS3. Try resetting the TV by turning the TV and PS3 off, then unplug the TV power cord from the outlet and plug it back in. Then turn your TV and PS3 back on and see if the picture appears.

    • Try using a different the HDMI Cable on the PS3.Make sure the HDMI Cable is free of any cuts, frays or other visible damage.
    • Try installing the PS3 to another TV or display (i.e., monitor).
    • Try using the HDMI Cable with a different PS3 system.

    PS3 HDMI No picture nor audio


    1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
    2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
    3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

    PS3 No signal to the TV


    To solve this, when the ps3 is in standby (solid red light), just hold the power button. It should beep on, then beep again in about 5 seconds. This will automatically search for the optimal audio video output. if if beeps on then turns off, just try again, it takes 1 or 2 tries sometimes. the reason this is happening is because your ps3 is set to one AV output, ex. composite(red yellow white), HDMI, and then you changed the cable to a different one. another way to fix it is plug both cables, HDMI and composite, into the tv and ps3, then go to settings and change the output to the desired one.

    Ps3 plays audio but does not show image on tv


    Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.

    But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.

    No video signal


    Try turning the console off, then holding down the on button until you hear a series of beeps, each beep representing the system switching video modes. (try testing another output source to make sure your tv is working correctly) if your tv accepts other video signals then you should find the correct one from your ps3 with this method. you may have to get it to work on AV or S-Video to make the appropriate changes to the HDMI and set the proper resolution for your television first.

    Hope this helps.
