Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Console will not work

I unhooked my console in my gameroom and hooked it up in the living room using a HDMI cable (it's hooked up by component cables in the gameroom). After playing last night, I took it out of the living room and hooked it back up in the gameroom. Now it doesn't work. No signal.

I tried to hook my wii to the new hd led flat screen but its black and white I tried doing the yello cable to green but it doesnt work and all the other inputs dont have ac jacks its just hdmi hookups


The yellow cable is RCA component and it sould not be connected to the Green port. Why not get a HDMi cable to make the hook up easier? Component RGB connection requires a RGB cable along with a stereo audio cable where as HDMI requires just one.

Hooked up hd cable to ps3 and tv, now have no sound


Be sure to check the cables. You may need to replace them.

Try the cables with another component, if possible.

Also, try using AV cables to verify that it is not the TV and to simply troubleshoot:

To get back to default AV settings:

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until it shuts off again.


Once you have verified that AV is working, turn off console, take out AV cables.


Plug in HDMI cable and turn system back on. Switch TV input to HDMI and it will ask you if you would like to use the HDMI cables, select yes again and verify.


If you cannot get sound, again, check the cables..


If new cables do not work, then your HDMI output is going bad, not from use rather normal wear and tear of the motherboard.


To get the best non HD picture, you will need to get some 'component' cables, rather than the standard AV (red, white, yellow).


Good luck

I can not get my ps3 to work with the component cables. I had it hooked up in my other tv with a hdmi cable and it was working


there is no true HDMI cable for the Wii but a "Component" cable which is as near to HDMI as possible. The cable has 5 plugs on it (make sure your TV has the same 5 plugs). They are available off of ebay

How to hook up a game console to an Olevia 232-T12


It all depends on your game console.

You can connect most to the Component, Composite, or HDMI inputs.

For modern consoles, use HDMI cables or provided Composite cables.

HDMI = Single cable and single plug (Best)
Component = Red, Green, Blue, Red, and White plugs (Average)
Composite = Yellow, Red, and White plugs (Worst, used for most older consoles and older TVs)

not 100% sure but check the manual for your tv it may be that you need a faster hdmi cable, as with having a larger tv it will work at a faster rate so the basic hdmi cables wont work.

Hook it up with the component cable and then hold the power button on the console until something comes up on screen. Make sure you have selected the component input on your tv or else you wont get anything anyway.

What holding the power button does is it resets the video settings to the lowest common denominator and then you can reconfigure it for the optimal picture quality of the component cables.

If that doesn't work double check the component connections on the back of the TV and just make sure they are where they should be and that no accidents were made while hooking it up.

Please post the results from these steps here so that I know what happened.

PS3 will not display on TV


WHEN YOU START YOUR PS 3, KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE START BUTTON UNTIL YOU EAR A SECOND BEEP ( BETWEEN 5 & 10 SECONDS); THIS WILL RESET AND SELECT THE RIGHT CONNECTION . I HAD TO FIND THIS PROBLEM WHEN WE WERE SWITCHING FROM THE LIVING ROOM TO MY KID'S ROOM.

LET ME KNOW, HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video


This happened to me a few years back so I apologize if it's not 100% accurate. If you can get it to work on another TV, go ahead and connect it to that, and go in to the settings to select the video input. If it's connected through an HDMI cable, then it will probably be set to HDMI. Change the input here to whatever cable you used in the living room. You will have to power it off at this stage, but when you connect to the other TV it should work.
