Please do the following :-

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it and then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to restart.

This solution basically resets the resolution back to standard definition and allows you to setup the video to how you want it.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I used a xbox hdmi cord for my ps3 and changed my ps3 settings to be compatible. The I tried to use the av audio cord and it did not show the picture. How do I fix this?


You need to do a video reset to your system. You might have to do this every time you go between HDMI and A/V. Here is a link how. It's really easy. ^^ Good luck. P.S. It's the same for every model of the PS3.

Toshiba 20WLT not working with PS3


The PS3 has to be configured to put out HDMI or AV(RCA plug)output.The easiest way to switch between is to connect both cords to the same TV,so you can swap to the other ouput and verify it works.(In other words,if you had the PS3 set on HDMI,you have to connect with an HDMI cord unless you change it in the PS3's settings).I think this was an energy saving solution by Sony,bacause I'm sure they could figure out how to make both work at the same.

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.


What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.

My ps3 was recently connected to a hdmi cord at my friends house now im back home nd i plug the av cords in and nothing is coming up its still connected to the hdmi


Hello. Sounds like you need to adjust the video output setting back to component. Go to settings, display settings, then video output setting. you may need to do this under an hdmi connection in order to see it. Once you change it to component then it will switch over to a standard AV connection.

I have had my PS3 for bout a year now and I'm using HDMI cord and all of a sudden i cant see nothing on my screen for nght to day...why could it be?


Have you tried changing the HDMI cable and making sure none of the settings have been changed on the tv or the console? try the normal AV cable on the back of the Ps3 console to see if it works but make sure you consult your manual to see how to change from HDMI to AV and vica versa.

Hello can you help with this error!


When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.

Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.

Hope this helps.

Ps3- hdmi to av


unless there is a switch on the ps3 itself to change to normal tv, you may have to reconnect the ps3 via HDMI and change the screen resolution back to 480p or change the settings in the setup from hdmi to av.
