My problem is earlier today i was playing my ps3, the picture was showing on the t.v. ( a HDMI Cable conected it to the tv), but 30 minutes later, i tried to play my ps3, the picture was not showing up...


Sounds like your video settings are wrong. Since you were on the HDMI connection the video was outputting in HD. When you switched over to normal AV (composite) cables the video was still outputting in HD.

Simple fix: power off your PS3 (so it's in standby; red light is showing). Then turn it back on, using the power button on the console (not the PS3 controller) and hold down the power button until it beeps a second time (about 5 seconds). The video settings will reset to composite. If needed, change your video settings.

Normally I'd put down like 3 other things it could be (each worse than the last), but I'm fairly certain that this will fix it. If it doesn't, just say so and I have many a more potential fix available.

Hope it works!

Hey guys i gave my ps3 to a shop in st neots to get my hd working and he blew out all the dust with a air gun and changed the settings and said the ps3 is set up for hd now and it worked on the shop tv but...


When changing the display mode of the PS3 you must be in the correct mode and be using the correct wire. If in the shop it was last set up in HD mode, then you must be using an HD cable (component cable(wire with red/yellow/white) will not work. Also, make sure that your TV can handle the resolution it is set in. If your TV at best handles 720p and the PS3 is set in 1080, then you will have to hook it up to a TV with 1080 to change it back or you will not get a picture.

Ps3 only works on my HD tv.


when you turn on the ps3 from the switch on the back, when the light turns red, hold down the power button on the front instead of tapping it to turn the light green. Hold it for atleast 5 secs. This restores the display settings.

PS3 pwr issues


I had this same problem, I removed the HD from the ps3 and put it in my notebook (you can do it in any other computer), with the ps3 HD in my notebook I booted up from a bootable cd downloaded from the SeaGate web site (a diagnostic tool). The tool found and fixed a problem in the ps3 HD, after that I put it back in the ps3 and it worked. =)
Hope it helps.
