You have said you have tried the standard AV cable but have you reset the PS3 back to standard definition? Do this by holding the power button down for 5 seconds. It will revert to standard definition after that.

Hope this helps

Im not getting anything (soud or picture) with the red, yellow, and, white cords. thats because it is set for the HDMI cable. how do i get the picture to come in without a HDMI compatable TV?


Sounds to me like you will need to plug the PS3 into a HDMI capable display and change the output settings on the PS3 to composite / AV.
Then reconnect to the non HDMI TV. The red, yellow and white cables should now work.

If you have a "slim" ps3, it does not beep 3 times. Try this.
First, with the system off,plug in your old red, white, yellow cables into the tv. (make sure your tv is on the correct setting). Now, just turn on the ps3 the regular way. Did you hear the sounds it normally makes when booting up (the ps3 boot music?). If so, thats good. If you did not, check again that the tv is on the right channel, and if possible, try another set of red, white, yellow cables.

If you heard sound, but do not get a picture, turn the ps3 back off. After the red light comes on, hold your finger down on the power button for about 5 seconds. If you have a fat ps3, it will beep 3 times after a few seconds to get back to regular tv mode. If you have a slim ps3, it will beep once, then 1 more time a few seconds later. It should reset and turn back on. If your tv is on the right channel and the cables work, then you should now see a picture and you know your audio/video is working. You can now try your HDMI cable and it should prompt you to use the HDMI at this point.

Hope that helps.
Mike!

I turn the ps3 on but the video doesn't appear. i checked the tv and cords and nothing was wrong with them.


Did you check that the AV cords are plugged in right? Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow? Are they properly connected in the back of the PS3 not loose connections? It could also be that the PS3 display settings are at a really high resolution for your T.V. Try reset the PS3 resolution settings back to factory settings by turning the PS3 off and then hold down the power button for 3-5 seconds and you will hear some beeps it will load your PS3 resolution at 480i. Should give you your screen back.

No picture on tv screen from ps3 console


It may be that,

1:
You have it on the wrong channel.I personally have had trouble with this.Usually on most modern televisions there is AV 1 2 3 4 and 5,CVI,and HDMI 1 2 and 3.Try each of these channels.

2:
You don't have the cords lined up.The three cords(in the order of Yellow White Red) must be lined up straight up and down.Otherwise the sound will be on one channel while the picture will be on the other.

Thats all I can think of,I hope it helped.

Where do the yellow,red, and white cords connect to on my Proscan 37'' DVD/HDTV


it depends on what signal your sending to the tv.
red and white are usually sound and yellow is picture or AV.
you may need to select the input on your TV to recive a picture. Does this help?

Full HD picture NO SOUND from ps3 to lg42hd using HDMI


Maybe your TV is not made for HD from the Sony Console. Try calling Sony Customer support, then your TV's brand Customer support. That will tell you if your TV Model allows the HD from the PS3. Remember though, PS3 Uses Blu-Ray. So you need Blu-Ray for your TV. Hope this helped.
