HARD RESET
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.(60gb if no switch unplug it and plud it back in)
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

Im not getting anything (soud or picture) with the red, yellow, and, white cords. thats because it is set for the HDMI cable. how do i get the picture to come in without a HDMI compatable TV?


Sounds to me like you will need to plug the PS3 into a HDMI capable display and change the output settings on the PS3 to composite / AV.
Then reconnect to the non HDMI TV. The red, yellow and white cables should now work.

So my ps3 will turn on but i get no picture whatsoever and my tv says unsupported signal. I have checked all hdmi cables and they are working correctly.


You are probably plugging HDMI cables into A/V jacks. Try using the red/yellow/white cables and plugging them in to the same color. If that works, then you know that your system is working and it is either a cable problem, or you just plugged it in wrong.

Try using different HDMI cables. If that doesn't work, your T.V. has a problem.

When i tried to hook up my ps3 to my hd tv, it just was stuck on the blue hdmi screen the ps3 will turn on, but will not show up on any tv in the house, why is that? and how can i fix this from home, if...


First take the red white and yellow cable from your ps3 a/v cable
and plug that in to any tv that has these inputs and select the correct
a/v input on your tv. You should get a picture if not swap the the
cables for another set. This will establish your problem is with
the ps3 setting and not a failure of the console.

Then goto video settings menu on the ps3 and select hdmi out
not standered tv . The picture will disappear and your hdmi out
put should be active if you want to return to standered video using
the Red white yellow plugs again just turn off the console and
then hold the power button down for 5 secs this will reset the
console to standered video out.

if you need more assistance feel free to ask.

How do you hook up a playstation to my vizio tv


depending on the age of your play station you may or may not have an hdmi output on the playstation. if youi do then its simple. one hdmi cable from the tv to the playstation and yoiur done. if not, you should have some round color coded plugs on the back of the tv and the same ones at the playstation. they should be just larger than a pencil eraser. these are called RCA plugs or phono plugs. the cables will have the opposite end with pin sticking out. you can go to google images and type rca plug to see a picture.

What do i do when my ps3 turn on, and nothing comes on the tv?


Sounds like you video display settings have been messed with. You can reset this by turning off the console so that the red light is on. Then hold down the power button for five seconds,it will beep a few times.If you have red white and yellow a/v cables laying around for the ps3 unplug the hdmi from the tv and the ps3 connect the a/v cables then turn it on. If you have picture,plug you hdmi into the console and the tv then go to display settings on the ps3 and set it for hdmi out.that should work.

When i plug my hdmi cable into the back of my PS3, it says no input on my TV ?


you need to connect both the yellow red white cable and the hdmi cable into your ps3 and go the yellow red white av channel

go to the ps3 settings and change the video settings (ithink) to hdmi and also change the sound to hdmi

the screen will go blank and then the tv should change to the hdmi av channel if not change to it and accept the changes

PS3 hdmi cable


Hold the power button for 5 seconds or more, that will reset to regular viewing ratio. From there you can adjust to whatever you are using. I had the same problem.
