My ps3 will work on hd tvs with the hd cable but will not work on normal tv with the scart cable

You will need to reset the video settings:

Press and hold the power button until the unit shuts off. After 2 seconds, repeat. You may hear 2 beeps but continue to hold the button until it shuts off. This will reset the video settings and you will be back to AV. You will need to set up your new video settings using the video settings tool.

I was using my acr cables for normal tv then I went and got an HD tv and an hd cable for my ps3 now when I try and use my normal cabels on a non hd tv the ps3 does not show on the normal tv wat can I do?

Hi, what you need to do is reset the display back to standard. Please follow these steps to do this :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 display to reset

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

When I put on my ps3 my tv comes up not supported

when you go to turn it on, press and hold the power button until you hear a 2nd beep, then let go. that will set the graphics card back to regular not HD, plug the ps3 in with the yellow red and white rca cord. and you should see the ps3, then once you have your ps3 working you can switch the cord to the HD cord and use the ps3 to see what signal your tv can use by going to Settings>Display Settings>Video Output settings on your ps3 xmb. hope this helps

Ps3 not wworking on regular TV after hdmi cable was used.

sounds like you have the ps3 set up in HD video display settings?

If this is the case hook it up to the regular tv and when you turn the power on continue to hold down the power button til it beeps this restores the video to default settings sometimes it takes a 2nd power down and power up holding it down to work.

If this doesnt solve please give more details
