You need to reset the resolution, try these steps :

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

    Yes, when you insert the HDMI cable back into the PS3 is "should" detect it and ask you about changing resolution and all that. Sometimes it won't though but this solution will make it register HDMI.

Please use HDMI cable to connect the PS3 to your computer when you found that it is working with that it. It only shows that your three prong cable is defective as it fails every time. Try with another three prong cable and see the results. I will still insist you to use HDMI cable which will give you better picture quality and sound.

My ps3 will boot up and the green light is on but i cannot see what is being displayed. i once changed the settings from the three prong to HDMI cable and since then i have not been able to view anything...


1. Turn off the PS3
2. Plug in whatever cable you are going to use
3. Hold the power button down until it beeps once followed by two quick beeps

This resets the display settings to defaults and you will see the picture again.

My PS3 wont display.


you could use the hdmi cable or the composite cable(like the old playstation one with the 3 leads but different colours,not red,white,yellow.)
both would be better for a plasma.
make sure your screen can utilise 1080 for hdmi.
if 720 or 480 use the composite cable.

Hdmi cord causing purple and green lines


It may be a ground loop caused by cable televisoin and the Ps3, as PS3 uses a 3 prong plug. Try unplugging the ps3 power cord and see if the lines go away. If they do, it is a ground problem...usually with cable tv. If this is the case, try a good quality power bar with cable suppression jacks on it. It will help eliminate the ground loop in most caese.
