Just pull the casing off and get the hdmi slot and get you a small small flat head and wiggle it out... it should come out with no problem cause you can push it from the back of the hdmi slot...

The console will not play through normal av cables. only plays through an hdmi cable.


Plug in the AV Cables while the system is turned off. Make sure the HDMI cable is turned off
Press and Hold the power button on the front until you hear it beep a second time and that should reset the video settings.

I played my xbox 360 on a hd tv, then i switched to a regular tv and the picture wont work. What should i do?


If you are using the video cable (multi-colored jacks on one end, big trapezoid on the other) with the switch on it, make sure the switch is on tv and not hdmi. If you are using the hdmi cable (small trapezoid connection on both ends) then you need to find the video cable. You should also check and make sure that your screen settings are not for HD.
Go to:
System settings
---Console Settings
-------Display
----------HDTV settings
If the HDTV settings option is available then you have the hdmi cable attached or the switch is flipped on the video cable causing the 360 to think you're transmitting to an HDTV.
Hope this helps you.

No sound from hdmi cable


Go to the Sound settings in PS3 and be sure it's listed as HDMI and not Audio Video Cables.

Output on TV may be set to surround sound system? Powerd On?

I cant get my ps3 to play threw my sony surrond system period the tv is a sony too i have all the hdmi cables hooked up why wont ps3 play on the surround?


You can't get audio from HDMI cables. You have to connect the regular AV cables into your sound system first or you can use the digital output from the PS3 into your sound system if you've got the right cables. You'll also have to configure this through the audio settings. This should solve your problem. Let me know if it doesn't.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

Ps3 hdmi-av


i currently have the exact same problem...i always play HDMI but i went home from college for thanksgiving and wanted to play on a regular AV jack TV, hooked up, and have no picture whatsoever...and i think it's because of the settings on the PS3 since it's set to send out an HD signal...Well i found this straight from Playstation3.com, on the support/troubleshooting section

"
  • 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."
Hope it helps =)
