Please try the following steps to solve your PS3 problem :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Try resetting the video output. Follow the steps below:


  1. Before changing cables, make sure the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 (the 0 side is pressed down).

  2. Unplug the power cord of the PLAYSTATION 3 and television (or display) from the wall socket.

  3. Make sure the AVI cable is connected to the [AVI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.

  4. Connect the other end of the AVI cable into the [AVI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.

  5. Plug the PLAYSTATION 3 and television (or display) back in to the wall socket.

  6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 back on (the line on the power button is now pressed).

  7. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.

  8. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 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).

Did you reset your settings on the PS3 to display in 1080 whatever while you were there? If so, you may have go back over and change the display setting to "automatic" (or automatically detect...I don't remember exactly what it says off the top of my head). There may be an easier fix but I can't test it for you because all of my tv's are HD. For future reference, "automatic" or "automatically detect" is always the best way to go with settings. It avoids situations like this. :^ )

Good luck.

My ps3 doesnt show any screen on my regular tv anymore !!!


You will need to change the display settings back to normal for a standard TV. Obviously a little tricky if it's already hooked up to the TV that won't display a picture! If you do a manual (or is it called total reset?) this should revert it back to standard TV settings. To perform the reset hold the power button down for 10 seconds (I think it's 10 anyway) or until you here a couple of beeps and it should reset the display settings to it's default.

Hope that helps? Sorry I cant be more exact on the reset details.

Playing on a regular TV.


Ensure you have returned the PS3 video output system setting to 480i vs the 720/1080 setting. Regular TV will give you a black screen at the higher resolutions.

WONT WORK


hold down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system1.gif on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.

Ps3


Depending on your television, if it's a tube then your display settings should be at 480i and no higher. Sounds like you set it at 720 or 1080 and your TV can't handle the resolution. You need to go to the PS3 main screen (turn on without game in it) and select the "settings" ( might be called "system settings", 2nd or 3rd icon from the left), a sub menu will show up and look for the 'display settings' heading and change it back to 480i. That should do it. Reset the PS3 just to make sure the new settings take effect.

You need to reset your video settings when you move to a regular TV. Just hold down the power button, it will beep twice and go back to stand by mode. They boot up again and your video setting should be back to normal ( for standard TV).
