Ressetig the ps3 on a new tv


Sounds like the Tv your using is faulty. Its could have hardware failure. You did say it PS3 was working on hdmi on a plasma. If your using the default hdmi cable that came with ps3 that also can be faulty. I have always had problems with the default hdmi so i bought a new one that was not SONY and it works beautifully. Another thing the black screen with green is a video cable or graphics issue.

Does this tv work if there is no ps3 connected? if so i recommend using the standard PS3 Component AV Cable. see if that will let you reset your ps3.

When i start up my ps3, it goes directly to a pink screen wit greenish streaks across it. Any idea to fix it ?


Did you hook it with HDMI or analog? My plasma was on the fritz but when i hooked it up analog it worked..ugly though compared to 1080P. Try a different HDMI cord as well

I get a black screen when I turn on my PS3. When I turn it on I do get the normal start up sound but the screen is black. The power cord is plugged in, the HDMI cord works (I switched 3 different cords...


Your PS3 may not be in HD mode. When you turn on your PS3 hold down the button until you hear a series of beeps. This will switch the PS3 to work with your HDMI. Now turn off and turn on the PS3 normally and you should have video.

I may be wring on the steps so check your manual or reference:

I had my ps3 hooked up to the plasma with a hdmi cord, my tv went out n i had the setting of the ps3 to hdmi, now idk how to change it to where i can hook it up with the original cord(red yellow white).....


To go from HD to composite you have to do while in HD mode do to the fact that the PS3 will only automatically detect HD and not composite. You can try doing the composit hook-up and then start in SAFE MODE.


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

PS3 problems At home I have a new samsung hd 1080p TV that I normally use for my PS3. I will be in a hotel outa town for the next couple of days and I wanna watch a movie using my PS3. In my...


I had the same problem, stuck in a hotel room for 2 days. When I held down the button, next time I turned it on, I got the same prompt with using HDMI output, said yes, and screen went black. However, a screen then came up asking if I could see the image or not, but it has a 30 second time limit before it saves those setting, you have to click "No" on this screen, and it will drop the resolution to 780p instead of 1080 and it should work! Make sure you're paying attention so you don't miss the screen!

Hdmi cable with plasma... no back to a normal tv


hi there,

you need to do a grapics reset on the PS3

easy to do, just turn the console of from the rear.

place your finger on the power button on the front while doing this hit the power switch on the back.

The console will beep 3 times and reset its self and take you to the grapics setup.

dont worry you will not loose any data doing this.

hope this helps

Can not get HDMI to work on PLAYSTION 3 on my Philips 42' Plasma


I had the same thing with my PS3 on a samsung 40". Try pressing the power button down on the PS3 for 5 secs or more, until it beeps (Not sure if it's one beep or a series of). I think this is how you reset the system and it should automatically recognise and reset the resolution size to HD on you're screen. Hope this helps,

Andy.
