I never tried a Ps3 on a standard def tv before but you may need a HDMI cable to connect from the tv to the console and you need a port on the tv for the av cable that comes with the ps3 to plug into the tv from the ps3. An HD tv has everything for the ps3 to run

I have a ps3 60gb capatible for the ps2 I have it hooked up to the TV but its not showing anything on the TV I have the High Def connectors for the TV


It is a known problem with some high def connectors not working properly. The following should be checked before concluding there is a problem
1. Ensure you have your TV tuned to the right output station for as your ps3 is connected.(for example you cannot have your ps3 connected to the second set of av ports on your tv and your tv is on av1, it has to be on av2)
2. Cross-check the functionality of your ps3 using the default av cables that come with it so as to know if your cable or console is faulty.
3. Ensure that you high-def cables are properly connected.
If all the above prove abortive, you have to see a repairer to check-up your ps3 or tv

The video and audio will not show up when using the standard jacks but everything works fine when using high def cable what would cause the standard cables not to work.


Hi, this happens because your console is set to use that definition. When you change tv or cables, just reset the video settings. It's pretty simple: switch on your console, hold on the switch until you hear 2 beeps. Now video settings are reset. Regards, Peter

Some games won't run on my PS3 40mb


Hello.
All games should run regardless of the settings. Are they PS3 games or games from the PS1 or PS2? That could also make a huge difference. The 40GB PS3 is not fully backwards compatible. Also, if they are PS3 games, try the reset default video settings. That might even work. Here is how to do that.


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!!

Unhooked ps3 from an hd tv and plugged it into an sd tv and it shows no picture.


when in standby mode(redlight) push and hold the power power button until you hear the second beep. This should reset your PS3 to it's standard 480i resolution.
