No video output, just sound

Tried the RT+ Y reset and that didnt work.

Is the overheat idea a good idea? It sounds like a few people have made it work.

Try the overheat trick only if you are off the warranty, it's risky. It can lead to other problems.

Well first make sure if you have a av cable that has both component and regualr avi jacks that the cable is set to right setting

HD - blue,red,green, and audio (red n white)
TV - yellow and audio (red n white)

should be a switch on the thick part the connects into the 360

My ps3 has no picture but has sound


you can try this..

leave a testimonial if it works.

if it doesn't write back and we will try another idea I have.

From the PS32_bing.gif main menu:

1. Settings->Sound Settings->Audio Output Settings
2. Change it from HDMI to Digital Out (Optical). I do NOT have optical hooked up on my PS3, so if you have it hooked up, you may want to unhook it.. probably shouldn't matter.
3. I left what was defaulted: "Linear PCM 2 Ch. 44.1 kHz" and 48kHz
4. Right on the D pad (X selects/unselects options) to move to the next screen.
5. A confirmation page, hit X to Enter, saving the changes.
6. Start up a game, you shouldn't hear any sound (as expected)
7. Exit the game, then go back to Audio Output Settings and switch back to HDMI. I selected "Automatic" for "method for setting the output format."
8. A confirmation page, hit X to Enter, saving the changes.
9. Start up a game, you should now hear audio with your game (once again).

My issue I believe was caused because I had been using a different TV2_bing.gif for a while. Somehow, when I switched back to my original TV, the settings did not automatically reset back.

Good Luck!

No picture but have green light


  1. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  2. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

PS3 - tv says no signal


You need to change the resolution output on your PS3 to match the capabilities of your TV. If your TV is not HD you can't leave the PS3's video output on HD. SCART is for european television connections. Have you tried using component cables? Have you tried changing your tv's source to Video 1 or Component 1 or HDMI or anything that might work? Good luck!!

Sound no video


Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list a couple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

Hello.
Most likely this is an output problem. But I have had 1 PS3 that had a bad hard drive and it wouldn't even load to the XMB. So try another hard drive and see if that works. Even a swift smack to the old one may work. If that doesn't work try the video out reset.

RE: No Picture


Ok,

Then it is a hardware issue.If you have tried the switch, tried multiple cables, and tried it ondifferent tv's and it still does not work than this sounds link theknown X-Box 360 video problem.

Red Ring of Death problem is that the GPU(Graphical Processing Unit) has a tendency to overheat, which wouldmake sense why you get no video, since this is the internal componentthat sends out video through your a/v cables to your tv. The Sound cardand motherboard probably still work, so that is why you would still getsound.

So the only solution is to get it serviced.
