The reset returns it to composite out (yellow jack) to view the ps3 now you need to connect the yellow cable from the ps3 to the tv input, go to the ps3 menu (settings) and select which cable type you want to use --have the hdmi already plugged in as you only have 30 seconds to confirm this

Have you tried resetting the video ouput?

Try these steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later.
Step 3. Release the power button when you hear the second beep.
Step 4. Wait to see if your PS3 starts up

What this does is reset the video resolution back to standard definition.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Tv and ps3 plugged in and on. av channel shows an empty screen


Follow these steps to resolve your problem:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release. This should reset the video settings.

4. Wait a few seconds, and the Play Station 3 (PS3) logo should appear.

If this does not resolve the problem, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button on the front until the Play Station 3 beeps and then turns off again. This should reset the video for you and you can turn it back on after this.

Issues with Audio from the PS3


you can try resetting the ps3. you need to hold the power button down for about 10 seconds this will reset all the settings. You will not lose your saves or game data. You may have to set your audio video setting via the XMB on the PS3 when you turn it back on.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

Ps3 dont have hdtv no more :)


Hold down the power button when turning the system on. This will reset the video and audio settings back to default. From there you can reset the video settings for the type of cable you are using and the type of tv you are using.
