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.

I turn the ps3 on but the video doesn't appear. i checked the tv and cords and nothing was wrong with them.


Did you check that the AV cords are plugged in right? Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow? Are they properly connected in the back of the PS3 not loose connections? It could also be that the PS3 display settings are at a really high resolution for your T.V. Try reset the PS3 resolution settings back to factory settings by turning the PS3 off and then hold down the power button for 3-5 seconds and you will hear some beeps it will load your PS3 resolution at 480i. Should give you your screen back.

When I put on my ps3 my tv comes up not supported


when you go to turn it on, press and hold the power button until you hear a 2nd beep, then let go. that will set the graphics card back to regular not HD, plug the ps3 in with the yellow red and white rca cord. and you should see the ps3, then once you have your ps3 working you can switch the cord to the HD cord and use the ps3 to see what signal your tv can use by going to Settings>Display Settings>Video Output settings on your ps3 xmb. hope this helps

No video on ps 3


Check your HDMI (looks like USB connetion) Connection or your Composite video connection (yellow, red, white connections.) Make sure they are correct and tight on both your TV and PS3.
Most common connection to use 1st is the Composite video connetions. Yellow is your Video display; Red and White are your Sound!

No picture or sound


Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple 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. Make sure the TV is on the correct seting. i.e. Video 1, Video 2, etc.

3. 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.
