If you mean power cord you can use a standard cord for a Computer power supply. If it is the video you can use a PS3 standard video or hdmi cable.

I've been using an hdmi cord for my ps3 now i want to use a ps2\ps3 av cord do i have to change my setting on my ps3 for before i which to the ps2\ps3 av cord

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

My ps3 is hooked up to my tv via HDMI cord. The

1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Then after that change the output setting to HDMI on your PS3 and see if it works after that, if not, try the system on another TV to make sure its not a problem with your tv.

If it still doesn't work try another cable and then after that it could be a problem with the main board inside of the ps3.

Ps3 no power

PS3 unit has fuses that probably failed. I wouldn't void the warrenty to try and change them yourself but this would be the place to start if you take it in for repair.

Re white and yellow cords

Try holding the power button on the ps3 for about 10seconds. It should beep as it normally would turning on, carry on holding the button until it restarts. This should restart the ps3 in standard mode so that it can be viewed via rca/scart connection.
