Hello. I have a 220-240V European PAL 60 GB PS3 which I have brought over to the U.S.
I've got the step-up (Voltage) transformer which is needed so it can operate here now.. power switches on fine and machine seems o.k.
I don't get any picture on my Samsung HD TV and I've tried all the ways possible to connect it with HDMI cables and the yellow, white and red cords. At best, I can get sound (no picture) through the TV when I have the AUX (yellow, white and red) cables going from my PS3 to a cable box- I have then an HDMI cable connecting the cable receiver to the television.
Why on earth is this not working for me and so difficult- I've spent all day trying to work this out and scanning the interent for solutions..
Thanks in advance for your gracious gesture of helping me.

The only way how to play PS2 games on PS3 is to have the correct version of the console. Either your Playstation 3
can play PS and PS2 games or it can't, and there's not much to do about
it. Most of the PS3 models simply cannot play older titles as they lack
the necessary hardware and firmware. However, a few models do have
backwards compatibility. The 20 Gb, 60 Gb, and original 80 Gb models
all have backwards compatibility, either through hardware or software
emulation. The other models lack backwards compatibility, so even
knowing how to play PS2 games on PS3 won't help you out much here.
You'll need to buy the converter. Ebay usually has them for the best price around. If you wanna keep the hdmi they're usually around $200 for the converter. You could save yourself a bit of trouble depending on your situation by just selling your pal ps3 and getting an ntsc version instead.
You can't just replace the motherboard, the blu-ray is tied to the motherboard number, so if you put in a new motherboard it won't read blu-ray games anymore. Check http://www.edepot.com/playstation3.html to find out how it is tied to the motherboard.
All the machine manufacture for Usa work on 110 volt 60 hz and the format is Ntsc.You should check availability on line about region Format like NTSC-PAL -PAL2 SECAM and which country are using the same, and make sure the hz is 50.Most of the new Game system support Dual Voltage But not the Ps3.You need to let your seller check on the machine tag to make sure everything is correct like 220v 50 hz.
The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
NTSC is the video system or standard used in North America and most of South America. In NTSC, 30 frames are transmitted each second. Each frame is made up of 525 individual scan lines.
PAL is the predominant video system or standard mostly used overseas. In PAL, 25 frames are transmitted each second. Each frame is made up of 625 individual scan lines.
Sorry , you cannot play the games
