Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I can't get any kind of picture from my PS3 to my TV it just stays a blank blue screen (using a scart lead). The cable to the TV I'm using is fine as it is working on my PS2 and I don't have any red or yellow lights showing, it also takes and ejects dvds etc without any problems. Its and early 60GB.

I was using my ps 3 on my plasma tv connected by a HD lead. I then hooked it up to another tv using a scart lead and now it won't work. I hooked it back up to the plasma tv and it works fine. I need it to...


Got to settings in the PS3 Crossbar and go to display settings. The first one should say video output settings, click on it. It should say your connection type is HDMI. Select component/D Terminal and hit change. The screen should go blank. During this time plug it in to your other t.v by the scart. It should say "Can you read this screen?" hit yes and there you go. To go back to HDMI do the same.

Bought my ps3 when it came out been really good till naw . it will switch on disc will go in everything sounds like it works but i get no picture tried a new scart lead and still nothing.


  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
  • This is from playstations website Hope this helps.

    MY SCREEN IS BLANK MY TV IS NON HDMI AND SO WAS


    • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
    • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 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!

    Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films


    I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

    The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

    Solution

    You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
    HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

    That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

    Connection problems


    Assuming you have connected the DVD to the component (red / green / blue phono) connectors at the back of the set, and the TV is set to EXT5 then the problem is a setting on the DVP5980.

    Check the Upscaling setting on the DVP5980 by pressing the HD UPSCALE button on the unit. Cycle through the options until you get a picture. The 30PF9975/12 is not fully HD compatible, so may only support the lower resolutions. (If any)

    If this does not work, connect the DVP5980 with the scart and power on the without a disc in the tray.

    Press Setup on the remote.

    Press the right arrow button twice to get to the VideoSetup Page.

    Move down to the Component setting an change from RGB to INTERLACE.

    Disconnect the scart and connect the component lead. Select EXT 5 on the TV.

    If the picture appears correctly, go back to the Video Setup Page and change the progressive option to On.

    go back to your friends with your ps3 and change the tv settings on the ps3 back to scart output but also take your scart lead and have it plugged in at the same time. once you have selected scart output unplug the hdmi cable to make sure the settings are right. hope this helps you.
