1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

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.

    My ps3 screen wont show when i turn the ps3 on.


    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).

    Hdmi doesnt show picture


    a few things to check. 1) does the TV tune to the appropriate HDMI port? If not then it isn't detecting a signal from the PS3. In that case you may not have HDMI output turned on. If you can reconnect the A/V cables then go to the system menu to display and set the output correctly. Start with 720p and work your way up to make sure you don't set it to a resolution that your TV can't handle. If you don' have the A/V cables then boot into safe mode and reset to default. This will reset the PS3 to out of the box settings (no data lost).

    PS3 doesn't work with tv anymore


    did you move the ps3 while it was on. If you did the reset for AV should repair both the AV problem and your HDMI as well. Shoot me a message back if it works or doesn't.

    No signal on my TV


    try connecting the ps3 to the HDMI only, now when the ps3 is off and all but the single red light is on rest your finger on the on button for about 8 seconds, as soon as you touch it it will turn on but just wait a bit and you'll here the a second beep- this should reset your ps3's video output settings. Try it out, it works for me when i go back and forth from av to HDMI.

    Please remember to rate my response if helpful.

    PS3 no longer communicating with TV


    All: Try this -

    P
    erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
    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 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.
    3. 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). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
    NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

    As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

    If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
    With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

    If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

    1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
    3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
    4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
    5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
    6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
    7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
