Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

HI, I just bought the PS3 today. Connected using the AV cable. The Menu came in Colors. Then I installed the games. Now When I start the game it takes few seconds and game starts BUT in BLACK and WHITE. Now I quit the game. STILL BLACK and WHITE screen. Then I removed the YELLOW cable from TV and reconnected same place ( while playing game or in MENU ) the colors are back. I am more frustrated to see this.

    I have the new TV only. I know HDMI can help. However I am looking for a solution for AV cables.

Buy a decent TV with HDMI. Then connect using a hdmi cable instead of old AV. Your ps3 is also a hd blu ray player, no good on an old tv!

    So now you have the hd tv are you still having problems with the AV connection? Why do you want to use AV on a HD tv? Surely you want to play it in HD, by using a HDMI cable connection.
    If you are still having the same problems with your AV connection, try a different AV cable.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your quick respose. Yes I tried with other AV cables. Same problem. I can go for HDMI cables. How ever I want to fix this issue first before I spend more money. As I recently bought this. AV cables are working fine in store with the Sony tv.

    Wow, strange, must be a problem with the ps3 itself. As you've just bought the ps3, return it as a warranty issue.
    Sorry I can't help you more.

Ps3 does not appear menu screen & AVI cable trouble


To fix the HDMI AV cable issue just do a manual video reset. When you power on the PS3 hold down the power button until you hear two beeps then quickly remove. If you have other problems I would suggest doing a System Restore under Settings.

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.

Hello can you help with this error!


When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.

Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.

Hope this helps.

40gb hdmi


I had the same problem at first. I did the following:

1. Connect both cables: Multi-AV and HDMI.
2. Go to the TV's channel for SCART.
3. You now can see the PS3. Go to Display Settings, under
Settings menu. Select HDMI and the desired resolution.
4. Change to the HDMI channel.
5. You should now also see the PS3's XMB on the HDMI channel.
6. You can now disconnect the Multi-AV.

I hope this information can help you and your customer.
Please rate.

P.S. I figured you were Dutch since you used Neophyte as a name for your previous question. Are you Dutch, and in that case: what videogames store you work at?

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

All picture and no sound


Hi,
Silly question, but have you gone into the setup for the AUDIO and chosen the correct signal connection i.e. Audio via HDMI, AV or something else?
