  • Make sure the system is off.
  • Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds - until you hear the second beep.
  • That's it, your video settings are reset and you should be able to choose your input and configure it from there.

    Everything connected, the screen shows but the


    Try connecting the PS3 to your TV through a different port. For example, if you are using HDMI1 on your PS3, try HDMI2 or HDMI3.

    Try a different cable. If you have a friend with a working cable try that.

    Try a different output on the PS3. For example, if you are currently using the HDMI port, see if the standard composite or component output will work.

    While convenient to plug things into an AV reciever, I find that just adds another link in the chain of devices that could go wrong.

    Good luck.

    I was was watching a movie on an hd tv and there were lines on my tv so i tried to switch the video settings to normal and now it wont show the games or anything on the screen


    Unplug you HDMI cable and use the normal 3 tulip cable (if you don't have this anymore borrow one from a friend the PS2 has the same.). Connect it to the side or front input of your TV. You can now reconfigure the Video out settings to HDMI (it should also ask you automatically if you plug it in).

    Good luck.

    No video or sound


    Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.

    Thanks,
    Ced

    PS3 won't connect to TV with component video.


    You need to connect the PS3 to the television with both connectors (HDMI and Component). Then in the display settings change it from HDMI to component and during the 30 seconds that the screen goes black you need to disconnect your HDMI cable from your playstation. Then switch to the input that the component cable is connected to on your television (ie. AV1, AV2, etc). From here you will see the countdown for the test and you can continue with these settings.

    Ps3 wont show or load games


    If you originally set up the PS3 with A,V cables it won't work on HDMI even if you set it up to and visa versa. There is a work around but you will have to call tech support. Here is a link at Sony's PS3 tech support that may help also. http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=263
