Its siomple if before you us to conneted to an hdtv just hold the turn off button on the ps3 for about 10 seconds to restart the settins. but if is the first time you connect your ps3 to a tv just plug in the a/v cable (red, white, and yellow) to the tv.

I had my ps3 hooked up to an hd tv but my tv broke and i have it hooked up to an old tv now. I'm having trouble getting a picture or sound is there any way I can configure it to my old tv?

you need a tv with hdmi to connect too then change settings back to normal but you need it connected to both hdmi and component av at once so you can switch between them both to save the settings. so when you change from hdmi to av you need to change your tv channel from hdmi to either video 1 or 2 then save your settings... hope this helps!

Chances are ur trying to use a HD tv but u have the settings wrong on ur ps3. so...

Hi there

The no display problem is very annoying as you check all your cables and everything is fine but still nothing shows up on the screen,

What is the no display error

Again this problem is pretty much what it say's, you know you have this when you have no display on the tv when the PS3 is all set up correctly

The Causes

The basic causes are cables not connected correctly or you have a cable that is not compatible with your Tv/PS3

It can also be PS3 settings that are not correct.

The bigger problem is the Display chip internally or hardware failure.

The Solutions

Solution 1
Ok so you can send the console off to sony they will collect it, repair it and send it back, this will usually cost you $150

Solution 2
My favourite solution is the PS3 repair guide, you can fix the problem within the hour, costs are below $40 and you don't need to be technical at all.

Solution 3

How to Reset Your PS3 to Standard Video Mode

So you bring your PS3 to your friend's house to experience HD Head-shot Glory on her new 50 Inch HD She-Better-Stop-Looking-So-Smug-Or-She's-Gonna-Have-To-Get-A-New-Friend TV.
Now the fun is over, you return home with sad little steps to your Standard Definition TV.
You reconnect your PS3 and "What!? Why the heck is there a blank screen when I turn on my PS3?"
Your PS3 is in HD mode.
Here's the fix:
  1. Turn off your PS3.
  2. Hold down the power button for 2 beeps.
Voila! Your video is restored! Now you can return to getting owned by the chick hiding in the far corner of the map behind that bush you can no longer see. Yay!

My PS3 connects to my 3yr old Mitsubishi HD tv fine via HDMI or the analog connection. However, using the same cable(s) it won't do anything but flash a squiggly green line a couple of times on a 6 year...

yup one or the other is capped at or below 1080 P - I so when you go to power it up at a new tv push and hold power till it makes the second beep 5 secs later and your good to go ok :)

Is it ok to play ps3 on plasma tv. I just bought a 50 inch lg plasma and don't want to mess it up. Its a 1080p 600hz

I have 2 50" plasma tvs. One is a Samsung and the other is a LG. I play my PS3 on both and have not had any problems whatsoever. You can also look through the manual and it should also give you some facts about hooking up a console system to it. You should also have different settings for the TV such as standard, sports, game mode, etc... So you can set the tv up on however you wanted to view it. Have fun gaming!

My ps3 turns on but i have no picture at all........ ive had it 2 years and never had any problems with it. could my hd cable be faulty??? ive had that the same amount of time???

Possible reasons for mess up:
1A.yes it could be the hd cable
2A.have you changed tv's to a standard t.v and switched back
3A.used hd cables for a sd tv because the resolution could be too high for that t.v.
4A. or sadly the system is dead

Possible solutions:
1B. if it's 2A. try putting the system into safe mode by pressing and holding the power button for 5sec. till you hear a beep and that should reset the picture settings.
2B. if it's 1A and you wanted to trouble shoot try to get another hd cable.
3B.if it's 3A hook hd cable back to hd t.v and see if that works
4B. Call SONY for help and advice and they may be able to fix it and if not you get a new system (for free if under warranty) for $150
[here's SONY's hours and number:
Sony Computer Entertainment America
M-SAT 6:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. PST
Sunday 7:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m
800-345-7669 (800-345-SONY) ]

p.s. the average life span of a ps3 is about 2 yrs. Sorry for any bad news
I hope I have helped and I hope it works!!

No visual picture

If it's a setting on the PS3 then just hook it up to another T.V. set it back to default and hook it back up to your other T.V.

PS3 Video Connection--Lines on TV

this may be due to the fact that your ps3 will be set up to hd. go into video settings when you switch it on and this should solve the problem. i had similar problems and bought a hdtv until someone pointed this out to me. however once you have experienced ps3 in hd you will not go back!!! hope this helps
