    Same here. Have 3 faulty motherboards. In fact, my question is can i simply replace the faulty component (ONLY) on the MB instead of the whole thing. Like if the processor or VGA chip or any other chip for that matter is gone, can i simply replace that component on its own?

    And yeah, i'm pretty certain its not to do with resets, etc... the reason i'm sure is cause i've put a working motherboard and all ran fine but when i put any of my other 3 faulty MBs, none worked.

I am trying to connect my ps3 to this TV. i have tried with AV ables and through HDMI but it does not seem to work. is there a problem with compatability?

PS3 outputs hi definition video through HDMI ie 1080p. Your tv will not support that resolution. Because its a HD ready one ie 1080i. If you wnat to connect the PS3 through the hdmi then you have to down convert the video output resolution of PS3 to 1080i. for that you have to connect the PS3 to any FULL HD tv and go to the HDMI video setup and down convert the resolution to 1080i. After that you can connect the PS3 to you tv. Surely you will get the video.

There is one more way to get the video in you tv. connect the PS3's component video output to the component video input of you tv and the audio output to the corresponding component audio input . Select component video input on the tv. You need a component video cable and a stereo RCA cable for that.

Convert MKV to vob or mp4 for playback on PS3 with your needed audio track

I'm trying to convert an MKV files to the format of vob or mp4 for playback on my PS3. The thing is that the mkv file contains two audio tracks, English and French. For some reason, the French track is the default track, but I can understand English only, so I have to look around the Internet for a program that allows me selecting English track as output audio track. After trying out couples of converters, finally I came across Pavtube MKV Converter in a forum, and found some good reviews on it. It really saved me a lot. Share it here, hope it is exactly what you are looking for. Please find a step-by-step instruction from my following contents.
First off, you can free download Pavtube MKV Converter here.
1. Launch Pavtube MKV Converter and click "Add" button to load MKV files
As soon as the file is loaded, you can double click the file name to preview the movie.

2. Click "Properties" icon to select your needed audio track
You are allowed to click on the drop-down menu of "Audio Stream ID" to see which one is your needed audio track. After your selection is done, do remember clicking "OK" button to save your choice.

3. Click on the pull down menu of "Format" to select mp4 or vob as output format for PS3
I chose "PS3 Video (720P) MPEG-4 (*.mp4)" for instance. To output vob files, you can select "VOB Format" firstly, and then select a format according to your own requirement.

4. Click "Settings" button to do advanced settings
If you want to adjust the video and audio parameters to achieve a special video and audio quality, you can click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters like codec, image size, bit rate, etc to whatever you like. To get a smaller file size, you can select smaller values, but there will be some video loss to some extent; to get a better quality, you can select larger values, while the file size will be enlarged without doubt. That is to say you'd better make a good balance between the output file size and the file quality. If you are not good at it, you can totally skip this step, because the default settings can satisfy you needs basically.

5. Click "Convert" button to start converting mkv to mp4 or vob
Once finished, you can get the resulted files via clicking on "Open" button effortlessly. Now, it's time to enjoy the movie on your PS3 via your wide screen TV.
The end! Hope this helps.

My ps3 power turns on but there is no signal output to the tv no audio no video and my a/v wire is working cause i tried it on a fren game

The problem may not be the wire but the video output settings. A lot of other PS3 users have had this problem and the solution is this: Hold your finger on the power button for 5-10 seconds and you should then hear 2 beeps. The video output should be reset to the default composite cable. You can let go of the power button after the second beep. After you've done this, you should be able to power on with the sound and video working.

I bought an opticall cable to play my ps3 threw my philips mx 3800d surround sound system but it dose nothing why wont it work please help


You have to set your audio out settings, since your PS3 is probably connected via HDMI and both video and audio passes through it you will need to select your audio source through the PS3 audio output settings and set it to optical out, here is a guide you can follow:

Why doesnt my tv recieve signal from my ps3

Your tv might not receive a signal for a variety of reason.

a. You have the RCA (yellow,white,red) cables plugged in the wrong way
b. Your ps3 hasn't recognized your video due to using an hdmi cable and switching around with the settings on your ps3.
c. you have changed the video settings on your ps3 and is now set to the wrong video output.
d. the cables have become defective and you need to purchase a new one.
e. the ps3 has malfunctioned and wont take video anymore.
f. the tv input is set wrong. make sure all RCA cables are found in "video output", all hdmi cables are found in "HDMI", and all VGA cables are found under "PC".

Your guess on the problem is as good as mine.

I hope everything goes better for you : )

Can you connect the ps3 to a regular tv

There are RCA outputs on the PS3 that will allow you to connect to an older non HD TV. If you do not have RCA (that is the yellow, red and white cables used for video and audio) inputs on your TV, you will need an adapter (most likely a coaxial to RCA adapter found at radio shack, walmart, target, etc.).

Hope this helps,
