Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I cant get a video signal on my TV, I tried my regular video and audio cable, and my HDMI cable and still cant get a signal, but all the lights is on and the system runs
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.

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.
Separate analog audio cables are not required (see
illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may
not output digital audio signals. In that case, you
may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).
The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
