I had my PS3 hooked up using a HDMI cable and it worked fine. Upon moving I had to switch to Component cables and now I dont get any picture or sound. Can you help?


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you are using component cable on your Ps3 you need to set the input of your Tv to Component Mode. Use the Remote of the Tv look for a Source or Input button then select Component Input.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Nothing show up on tv screen after plugging in the cables. the HDMI and the AV cables too.


Hi, try the following
1 using the av lead and not the hdmi so plug the av lead into your tv and make sure your tv is on the correct input
2 turn the ps3 on at the back
3 now press and hold the on button down until the ps3 switches itself back off
4 then press the on button again, doing this resets the video mode from hd back to standard av so once you have done this you should have a picture on the tv, if not check your on the correct input

if you have done the above and it still dont give you any video than please let me know then ill do my best to assist you further ok

please rate this solution, thanks

No picture, sound or menu on PS3


Try booting the PS3 with the hard drive removed from the drive bay ( on the side) you just remove the small plastic piece hidding it and remove one screw. It's easy. Let me know what happens. Also make sure you also plug in the original red white n yellow cables too to check if it's just an hdmi issue or system wide.

No picture displayed on screen


OK, I am assuming you are using the same TV, PS3, cables etc that you were using before you went on vacation. Turn off the PS3...we are going to reset the video display. make sure everything is connected properly before we start. now here we "kinda" gonna turn it on, except you will hold your finger on the touch sensative power button until it beeps several times in a row with about a half second between beeps. It should reset the PS3 and the resolution.

If you get nothing on the screen after trying this several times, you should gather up 150 bucks and call sony for hardware repair.

My screen is purple, and my ps3 games display with purple colors.


I had the same problem and i tried what you tried and no result. Came to find out it was my tv. Depending on your tv you have to programe it just like you had to program your ps3. And if that doesnt work its your monster cord. Ask some one at best buy to help their pretty good.

Ps3


  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If that does not work try calling Sony at

HDMI causes red lines (static?) on screen


im having the same problem to fix it i unhook my cable box (the video cables and the hdmi inputs to the tv) this stops the lines--try just the ps3 hooked to the tv and no other devices this should solve the problem--must be getting interference from some device
