Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Lines on the screen

When my PS3 is plugged in using the red yellow white hookup (I haven't tried HDMI or any other) these horizontal lines appear as distortions and scroll from top to bottom. I think my PS3 is defective or something. The TV is fine, all plugs are in tight. Any clues? has anyone else had similar issues?

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.

I dont have extra hdmi connections so i use av multi with the red/blue/green(no red/white on cable) conections with an optical cable- which will not play sound. What am i missing?


I honestly thought it would have the white red and yellow as well. If it does try plugging in the yellow along with the ones you already have. If not then try plugging the green into the yellow hole.

Att uverse hook up hd tv


I do not own a blue ray player but my son has a PS3. The thick cable is most likely HDMI and it should work without the red/white sound cable...try unplugging them so the auto detect feature if available and activated is not trying to compete by finding 2 sources. If that works great! If not, you can get a yellow RCA for the video and just use those as a source - again, don't use the HDMI cable and try it. If you don't have a yellow RCA, I've used another red or white for video testing to see if I can get a video feed. Most newer red/white cable will pass a video signal just fine and are only color coded for ease of hookup.

You can try resetting the display settings. What you need to do is plug in the input that you would like to use, whether it is the HDMI cord or your composite cable, and then press and hold the power button. It will beep once when it turns on, then continue to hold it and it will beep 3 times. Once it has beeped 3 times, you can release the power and it should start up with the input working just fine. If not I would suggest getting a hold of Sony to try their troubleshooting techniques and possibly getting your console repaired.

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.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv


The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    Sony DVP-NS77H No outout


    I had the same problem unitl I read the manual a little more carefully.

    I found that ALL connections through my AV receiver had to be identical. I was using component connections with analog connections.

    Since I switched to all HDMI connections (cable box to AV receiver, DVD to AV receiver and AV receiver to TV) all is fine.

    Hope this helps.
