Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Follow up on Playstation / TV connection

Hi
I bought a lead similar to the one you suggested. However it only works if I connect the S-Video lead, just connecting the 3 phono connectors alone does not work at all. If I connect the S-video it works, but there is no sound. It does not help that the TV sockets are a different colour to the cable. I connected the one labelled to the yellow plug; does it matter which way round the other two are? Many thanks for your assistance.

I think that the audio/video cables only work when s-video is not used at the same input. In other words if you use video 1 as a s-video input, you can't use the video port on video 1 with a video cable. Also, when you hook up s-video you must use a/v cables as L) and R) audio along with it. It really doesn't matter in which order audio cables are either. Hope this helps, Russmann.

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.

    All picture and no sound


    Rick:
    simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
    Let me know

    When I hook my ps3 up to my Sony Bravia tv it comes up invalid format. Any suggestions? But doesn't do that when I hook it up to other sony


    Disconnect any SCART leads.

    1. Connect your HDMI lead to your TV HDMI 1 port and PS3.
    2. Now turn OFF your TV, then turn OFF your PS3
    3. Now wait 15 seconds.
    4. Now turn on your TV and follow this carefully......
    5. Now press and hold the "ON" button on your PS3 until it cycles at least once.  
    6. Wait 2 seconds and it should handshake properly and make the connection.
    I had the same issue, was a pain until I saw the solution on another site.

    I connected my playstation 3 to another tv and it


    If you attached your PS3 to an HDMI capable TV it asks you if you want to switch to HD Mode.

    However, once you attach it back to a regular TV you get no picture.

    Follow these steps to resolve:

    1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can flick the power switch in the back then back on again.

    2. With your PS3 connected to the TV and the TV on, press and hold the power button.

    3. Hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release.

    4. Wait a few seconds and the PS3 logo should appear.

    PS3 no longer communicating with TV


    All: Try this -

    P
    erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
    1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
    2. 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.
    3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
    NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

    As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

    If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
    With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

    If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

    1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
    3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
    4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
    5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
    6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
    7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
