Hi,

If you are sure that you have set up the cables correctly for the non HDMI connection then do the following;

Turn off the ps3 and then power it back on by holding the on/off touch switch for at least 5 seconds until you hear the console beep a second time.

This should reset the video/audio to default and should resolve the problem.

Hope this helps. If you continue to have problems leave a comment and I will be happy to respond.

If the issue is resolved please do leave a vote for the solution. Thanks

Why when I connect PS3 throgh AV it do not work meanwhile it work throgh hdmi cinnection


With the regular AV cables plugged in and not the HDMI cable, press and hold the power button until you hear a beep with the unit off.
When it turns on, the video output will default to whatever connection is plugged in.

Look in the manual for which version of HDMI. If it's 1.2a, they had a problem with the boards and were repairing them. Contact Yamaha @ 1-800-292-2982 Hope this helps

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video


This happened to me a few years back so I apologize if it's not 100% accurate. If you can get it to work on another TV, go ahead and connect it to that, and go in to the settings to select the video input. If it's connected through an HDMI cable, then it will probably be set to HDMI. Change the input here to whatever cable you used in the living room. You will have to power it off at this stage, but when you connect to the other TV it should work.

Ps3- hdmi to av


unless there is a switch on the ps3 itself to change to normal tv, you may have to reconnect the ps3 via HDMI and change the screen resolution back to 480p or change the settings in the setup from hdmi to av.
