I was was watching a movie on an hd tv and there were lines on my tv so i tried to switch the video settings to normal and now it wont show the games or anything on the screen


Unplug you HDMI cable and use the normal 3 tulip cable (if you don't have this anymore borrow one from a friend the PS2 has the same.). Connect it to the side or front input of your TV. You can now reconfigure the Video out settings to HDMI (it should also ask you automatically if you plug it in).

Good luck.

Go to display settings and you must change the video output manually to 480 or less.

No video or sound


Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.

Thanks,
Ced

My ps3 doest display anything nor makes any sounds please help


Just a gander, but your PS3 may be set for HD output thus not displaying on your non HD television, your best bet in this case is to find an HD television, friend, coworker, etc, connect to it and switch the settings back to regular. Also if I understand correctly leaving the ps3 completely unplugged for 72 hours may also reset all settings. Good luck!

It's probably a problem with the connection of the PS to your tv. If the connection setup is right, and you still get no sound or colour, connect the PS3 to the TV using the standard-def A/V cable provided in the packaging and press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds when you start up the console. After that, you can change the display settings to an HD connection and connect the PS3 to the tv using an HD cable. (That is if you want it in HD)

PS3 Scart / HD


Turn it off with the "hard" switch in the back. Then turn it back on with the switch while pressing the power button on the front for 10 secs, this should reset your display settings.

You need to reset your video settings when you move to a regular TV. Just hold down the power button, it will beep twice and go back to stand by mode. They boot up again and your video setting should be back to normal ( for standard TV).
