Set your system up on the TV you want to use then hold the power button down until you hear two beeps. This resets the video setup feature. None of your games will be erased.

Hey im having issues ive had before but fixed easily i just cant remember how to do it. I connect my PS3 through hdmi on my dell W3201c tv, however, now it is saying OUT OF RANGE CANT DISPLAY THIS VIDEO...


Have you tried to reset the PS3's video manually. To do this you turn the unit off at the power supply. Turn it on. Press and hold the power button. You should after a lil time hear a series of beeps. Soon the system shoudl turn off. Turn it on with one touch and it should reset the video for detection mode and then select the monitor by itself.

Playstation 3 is on however the tv screen is


Since I don't know if this has worked for you before I can only give you advice. I'll do my very best to help you in whatever way I can.

If it's a new system I need to know how you have it hooked up. I'll start by having you troubleshoot some things:

If you want it hooked up through HDMI connection you'll need to hook up both the composite (Red White & Yellow) cord that came with it; along with the HDMI cord.

Turn your console on and set your TV input to whichever input the composite cable is hooked into.

Assuming you have picture:

Go to your settings and select Display Options. At the next menu, you'll want to switch it from composite to HDMI. Your screen will go blank.

Set your TV to whichever HDMI input you have it hooked to and you should see a display. Confirm if necessary.

If you still have no picutre:

What I would initially do then is make sure the system is off, turn your TV input to the correct video settings for the composite, and when you turn it on, hold your finger on the power button for a few seconds after it's on to set the default picture display.

You should have a picture now. If not, it could be your TV. Try these same steps on another TV.

Please let us know if you're having further issues & Good Luck!

Respectfully,

Don

Connecting ps3 to hd tv


ok here's what you do. Hook up your ps3 to your hd via hdmi cable then turn the tv on first. Then turn the power on to your ps3 and switch tv to hdmi. wait a while then a screen should come up and you should see and screen where it says an hdmi device is connected do u want to accept theses settings say yes. sometimes the "handshake" doesn't happen properly. If u already know this or have tried this it could be that your tv needs a firmware update, happened to me.
