Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

I have a playstation 3 (the slim version). It was tuned to a HD tv and now we are trying to get it to work on a regular tv. It won't. We had this problem before with th original ps3 and we got it working by holding the on off button down for 5 secs and it retuned it. That doesn't work with this new version. Any ideas? Thanks

That is strange this should work. the reset is the same for the slim as the large. switch the cables out and try different ones. sometimes they go bad. if that doesn't fix it then there may be something wrong with the hardware. 800-345-sony... i'd hate to have to call them but sometimes there just isn't any other choice.

Have a PS3 slim, when i turn it on at connect it to the TV with the Component cables, everything works fine, picture shows and the sound comes out just fine, but when i try to connect it with the HDMI...


You need to turn on the tv and set to HDMI, Then power on the PS3 and hold down the on (standby) button until it beeps again twice and it will pick up the TV and display on the HDMI,

If this doesnt work go to system settings and video settings and set the output to HDMI.

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.

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.

How do i connect the playstation 3 to tv, it was connected to hd tv then we have tryed to connect to normal tv and nothing. please help


You have to connect the wire that has 3 separate wires at the end into your television according to the color. Plug the red wire into the red slot, yellow in the yellow and white in the white. You will then have to take the other end of the wire and plug it into the back of your playstation. Also, make sure to plug your playstation into the electrical outlet.

No solution found on your site. My 62" Toshiba DLP makes an extremely loud chopping noise when on HD channels using a satelite service. (Happened on Dish and Suddenlink) No sound except for the chopping....


Have you contacted your satelite provider? Have you any other HD sources to try, A Playstation 3, a blue-ray disc player or even using the TV's terrestrial HD tuning system can tell you if its the TV or the Satelite.

I cannot get my psp slim, lite to play on my tv.


Connect the psp side to the bottom right. Connect the tv side to the corresponding input colors. Your tv needs to have progressive scan and the right inputs.
