I just hooked up my PS3 to an HD cable. My movie sound works, but now the game sound doesnt... Help?


Hi forever_drea

PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER IF YOU FIND IT HELPFUL !

1- Turn off the power of your PS3 and then turn it back on again.
2- During that, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen.
3- And that's about it. What it does is, completely resets the video settings to 480p I think, the basic configuration, which enables it to work on any TV or monitor.
4- Once you get something on your TV / monitor screen, you can configure your PS3?s video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to.

Hello,

8002f281=issue with the PS3 Harddrive.

Chances are it was busy and you shut it down, then the HD got corrupted. Try this link:
http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=441

I would say try to troubleshoot it. But, I think in the end you will just need to reset the PS3 back to factory settings/format everything.

Good luck and please rate my answer.

For the ps3 if i change to HD settings, how could i change back?


  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps32_bing.gif will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all

Try to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM.
Follow this guide.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when it turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

  • Reassign BD Remote to #7.

PS3 NO VIDEO/AUDIO output- no display NOTHING NEED HELP!!!!!!!!


I have a friend at playstation and when I called I had no video or audio using the AV Multi Out.
The soultion is:

1. Turn Off in back (wait few seconds for it to re-set)
2. Turn on in back
3. Turn on in front and hold your finger on it 'till it turns off again -
(you get the beep on then the three beeps for reset and it will eventually beep again and turn off)
4. Turn off in back (wait few seconds for it to re-set)
5. Turn on in back
6. Turn on in front hold finger for three beeps and damn it works!

I was so Pissed for two days and spent $80.00 on new cables (that I did not need) and the answer was so simple.. The SONY on-line troubleshooting instructions really need to be updated!

Let me know if this works for you!

Thanks

It POWERS ON BUT HAS NO PICTURE,


Okay, I am now going through all the unsolved problems for which previously I had the same problems and now posting our solution. First, if you have no pic due to swiching of the cables (ie, cable av, hdmi) WHENEVER you switch your cable output, the ps3 also switches it's output. Make sure when there is no picture due to this problem to turn off the game console, then turn on, hold down the power button for approx. 5 SECs, there will be a BEEP. Let go of power button, the ps3 has then switched back to the output it is currently plugged in and will work. (ALSO sometimes you have to have ONLY the ps3 and tv hooked up) Hope this helped. I know how stressful this can be!
