When I switched my connection from HDMI to av on my ps3 I couldn't hear sound anymore why

Its completely understandable , lot of people face the same trouble switching between the two..

The first step is to make sure that your PS3 is on standby. In a more understandable term, just make sure that your PS3 is turned off but plugged into the wall to the point that the PS3 power light is showing red and not any other color. To switch PS3 HDMI to AV you will have to hold the power button down until it beeps twice. You will have to make sure that your PS3 is off before you begin holding the button down or it may not work successfully. This will tell the PS3 to switch back to AV video. You will have to do this every time you switch to and from PS3 HDMI to AV. This also means that you will have to select the option that allows HDMI every time you try to go back to the HDMI interface. One you do it once you will problem remember by heart on how to fix the problem of not being able to switch PS3 HDMI to AV interface.

Samsung TV Is Not Picking Up A Playstation 3 HDMI Signal

If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.

Only sound comes when i connect HDMI cable to my TV for the ps3

you need to select High definition output on the PS3. Connect it via hdmi and via standard lead switch the tv to standard so you can see the picture then select high definition output. Switch over to hdmi and you should see a picture

I had my PS3 hooked up to an HDMI cable, and now switched it back to the regular yellow, red, and white hook ups, and it no longer comes up on my TV. What can I do to solve this? Is there a reset button on...

The unfortunate problem is that the PS3 is now in HDMI mode and you have to be connected to HDMI to see the menu and switch to composite display. If possible connect back to HDMI to swap the menu to composite.If that is not possible then follow these instructions (I had to switch them once without HDMI so I wrote them down for future reference.):

1. Turn on your ps3 and wait a few seconds (approx. 10 seconds)
2. If you have multiple accounts on the ps3, Press ( X ), If you don't then just skip to number 3
3. Press Left arrow 4 Times ( <<<< )
4. Press Down Arrow 9 Times ( vvvvvvvvv )
5. Press ( X ) 2 times
6. Press Down arrow 2 times ( vv )
7. Press ( X ) 2 times
8. Your Done! the screen should be shown now in your standard definition TV

Hope that helps.

What do i do if my hdmi on my ps3 isnt working can it be fixed

The issue may be that your TV is not capable of displaying the resolution the PS3 is attempting to use. By doing the following steps the PS3 will adjust itself to your TV's native resolution.

1) Make sure your TV is on and set to HDMI input.
2) Make sure that you have your PS3 connected through the HDMI connection.
3) Power on the PS3 using the POWER switch on the unit itself, not the one on your controller. Hold down the POWER switch for 5 seconds. The PS3 will then automatically switch itself to the correct resolution.
If this doesn't work then try another HDMI cable to ensure the problem isn't the cable.

If none of the steps work then you may have an internal issue. The problem is that there are a number of issues that could be causing the HDMI connector to malfunction. Without the proper equipment and experience it will be impossible identify the cause. This would be the time to take it to your local PS3 shop and have them do a diagnostic and a quote on the cost of repair. Remember that most shops will charge you a minimum of one hour's labor to do the diagnostic.

PS3 won't connect to TV with component video.

You need to connect the PS3 to the television with both connectors (HDMI and Component). Then in the display settings change it from HDMI to component and during the 30 seconds that the screen goes black you need to disconnect your HDMI cable from your playstation. Then switch to the input that the component cable is connected to on your television (ie. AV1, AV2, etc). From here you will see the countdown for the test and you can continue with these settings.

No picture connected via HDMI

Your PS3's HDMI settings may be the issue. When you go to turn on your PS3 next time, instead of just pressing the poser button and letting go, hold it for 5-6 seconds until it beeps again and then let go. This will force the PS3 to autodetect your TV again and should bring up the video. good luck!
