My playstation 3 will not display a picture i changed the settings from output HDMI to output RCA and now there is no screen on ether output but there is audio on the HDMI output how do i get the picture...


Turn off the PS3 and take the HDMI cable out, then switch it on again holding the power button for about 10-15 seconds until it gets turned off. This should reset the output settings. After that, put the HDMI cable back in and switch the PS3 on , if you did everything right it will ask you to confirm the HDMI output.

I was switching my ps3 from hdmi output to the red,yellow and white cords and after i accepted i switched my tv to av1 and there was picture and sound but it then asked me what format and i selected 1080p...


Easy to fix so don't worry ;)

While the PS3 is off (solid red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.

This will reset the video settings back to default.

I took my ps3 to my cousins house who has an HD tv with a HD wire. But once I took it back to my regular tv it didn't work. The screen was black. Please help me.


I had this same problem myself, and it's simple to fix. First, make sure to power off your OS3. The only light should be the red "Standby Mode" light. Now, press and hold the power button until you hear a beep, and the wait a moment. The console should start outputting to your TV again.

The problem your having is the video settings. Once the PS3 was set to output to HDMI, that's all it's outputting to. It can't tell when there is an RCA connection (those red white and yellow connectors), only when there is a new HDMI. Next time you go to your friends, just make sure to into the settings and choose the RCA video output before you disconnect from his TV and go home, then you shouldn't have any problems.

Here are the Sony instructions for this process.

My ps3 comes on but not giving any output


first of all. have you hooked up a hdmi cable, if so then you need to turn the system off and then the swcoitch on the back off for about 10 to 15 seconds. turn the switch on then press the power button and hold it until you hear a beep(only one beep) thjen release and that will switch from hdmi output to the composite (audio vedio cables) output. If that does not fix it the your connectors r bad and need to be replaced inside the system....

Blue no signal screen in the middle of playing a game - ps3 hdmi


Have your tried a different plug HDMI plug on your TV? Maybe bring your PS3 to a friend who has HDMI and try it on his TV. What about a diffferent HDMI cable?

Could also be your HDMI on your PS#, but try these other simple tasks first.

Good Luck

60GB PS3 had been hit by a power surge. HDMI not working.


hook up the ps3 thru the regular yellow composite and HDMI. Go into the settings and change the output to HDMI and then see if you can get video thru the HDMI, if you don't then the mainboard is bad and you would have to send it to Sony unless you can get your hands on another broken sony ps3 with a good main board.

No video on PS3


Use regular A/V cables on the ps3. Turn off the PS3 from the back. Go ahead and hold down the power button on the front and as your doing that turn on the ps3 from the back and keep holding the power button on the front for 5 seconds.

At this point it should reset the machine back to factory defaults and you should get video. Go ahead and change the video output to HDMI and reboot the system. On the reboot you should get video from the HDMI output, if you don't then that means you have a bad main board inside of fthe PS3.

Ps3 plays audio but does not show image on tv


Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.

But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.
