Hi there, no you don't need an HD tv to use a playstation 3. You can use a standard AV cable that has 3 connectors that go to your tv, a red, white and yellow connector. This is for use on standard tv's. As long as you have these inputs into your TV then you can use it.

Obviously the advantages of HD are that graphics are much more vivid and watching blu rays in true high definition is always a bonus.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

SOURCE: I connected my playstation 3 to another tv and it

If you attached your PS3 to an HDMI capable TV it asks you if you want to switch to HD Mode.

However, once you attach it back to a regular TV you get no picture.

Follow these steps to resolve:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can flick the power switch in the back then back on again.

2. With your PS3 connected to the TV and the TV on, press and hold the power button.

3. Hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release.

4. Wait a few seconds and the PS3 logo should appear.

I had my playstion 3 hooked up to an hd tv and then i hooked it up to a regular tv..the tv isnt reconizing the playstation at alll..i dont know what to do,


Hook the ps3 back up to the hd tv. From here you need to acces the settings resolution options. Set the resolution to 480 (standard tv). Once set for standard, turn off, disconnect, and set up to non hd tv. Problem solved.

Well everytime we hook up the HDMI for the playstation 3 to the tv it says invalid format how do i fix this


You must make sure your playstation and your TV set are both set for the same video format (1080p, 1080i, 720p, etc.).

You can either go through all your HDTV formats until it synchs up (give each a good 20 seconds or so before moving on), or you can open the display menu for your PS/3 using a different video connection to your set (i.e. composite), setting both to match, then switching them to HDMI.

Origiannly had my son's PS# hooked up to our HD TV


You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
