PS3 tuning problem

I used to use my PS3 on a non HD TV. I then changed to an HD TV and it works fine but it will no longer work on a non HD TV - I just get a blank screen. Do I have to re-tune it? Can anybody help?

Hello. This is what you need to do.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

Chances are ur trying to use a HD tv but u have the settings wrong on ur ps3. so...


Hi there

The no display problem is very annoying as you check all your cables and everything is fine but still nothing shows up on the screen,

What is the no display error

Again this problem is pretty much what it say's, you know you have this when you have no display on the tv when the PS3 is all set up correctly

The Causes

The basic causes are cables not connected correctly or you have a cable that is not compatible with your Tv/PS3

It can also be PS3 settings that are not correct.

The bigger problem is the Display chip internally or hardware failure.

The Solutions

Solution 1
Ok so you can send the console off to sony they will collect it, repair it and send it back, this will usually cost you $150

Solution 2
My favourite solution is the PS3 repair guide, you can fix the problem within the hour, costs are below $40 and you don't need to be technical at all.

Solution 3
Buy a new PS3 console over $200 this is the last resort.

Will not tune in to my non-hd tv


You need to reset the A/V out settings.
Have your PS32_bing.gif in standby mode (solid red light). Press and hold the power button, you will hear one beep (power on), then you will hear another beep (reset). Release the button at this point and the video should reset and work on your standard TV using the red/white/yellow RCA cord.
Thank you!!

MY SCREEN IS BLANK MY TV IS NON HDMI AND SO WAS


  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

Having trouble playing my Ps3 on a non HD tv after already using it on a HD tv


Hey bro try going down to circuit city, best buy and get the HDMI cord that converts to a Component cable on the opposite end. You can do this as long as the back of the non H/D tv has the Component Inputs on the back of the TV. If that does not work get the HDMI cable that converts on the opposite end to a S Video signal and connect that end to the S Video input on the back of your tv. I have seen these cables at circuit city in the playstation section. Again on one end of the cable it has your HDMI input to connect to your ps3 and on the opposite end of the cable it has the S video plug to run to the back of your tv and plug it into the S Video input. Same thing can be said for the HDMI on one end of the cable and the Component cables on the opposite end to run to the back of your tv. This will work if you find those cables. Good Luck.

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).
