I can not see any picture or sound at all. We have the HDMI cable pluged in the PS3 and the TV, but red white ,and yellow plugs we r not sure where they should be.


There are different settings for PS3 video output, i.e. if it is set for HDMI it wont display when a scart lead is used. Try the scart connector, if it works go into settings and change to how you want it set, dont forget to save settings

Just bought a ps3 secondhand but no scart lead do i need one?


You don't need a scart lead for your ps3 if you have a HD television. All ypu need is the HDMI cable (which is not included with a new PS3 but you can get very cheap from Ebay- don't bother with 'gold plated' or other 'high quality' cables as they are all the same output quality). The HDMI carries audio and video to your HD television, but you can use a scart lead for audio if and the HDMI for video if you want to use external speakers. The ps2 scart cable also works for the ps3 if you don't have a HD television. (note: a HD television is highly recommended because the quality is a hundred times better). Mine is a Samsung HD monitor which you can buy fairly cheaply.

I was using my ps 3 on my plasma tv connected by a HD lead. I then hooked it up to another tv using a scart lead and now it won't work. I hooked it back up to the plasma tv and it works fine. I need it to...


Got to settings in the PS3 Crossbar and go to display settings. The first one should say video output settings, click on it. It should say your connection type is HDMI. Select component/D Terminal and hit change. The screen should go blank. During this time plug it in to your other t.v by the scart. It should say "Can you read this screen?" hit yes and there you go. To go back to HDMI do the same.

When the display is via HDMI Games won't load, the screen will alter as if loading the game then it will flicker and go black.... But it plays Blu Ray Movies fine...? I then have to restart the system and...


It's a bit of a pain as you'll have to re-establish your initial internet setup ( this is where keeping old passwords, etc, comes in handy ! ), but the only solution that will work is by resetting your PS3 to ' first time use ' ( not back to factory condition though ).
This may be an unwanted slog but if you've accidently changed the settings and can't remember how or why at least you'll know the initial sttings should work.
If you don't want to do this, try going to the screen settings and adjust one at a time ( loading a game in between ), also if you have a scart lead fitted ( as well as the HDMI lead ) make sure it's in the audio out and not in ' video ' ( the audio out will be a circuit between an audio scart socket on your tv and the red and white leads going back to your audio output device : active subwoofer, etc , the yellow lead plugs into the scart lead from the console via a plug point adaptor which goes straight into the scart on the tv set ).
AV Multi Out should not have to be performed as the leads out devices are the only ones which should be pressed to set.
Hope this helps.

No input signal HDMI


turn on and hold down the on/off button for thirty seconds when it resets it will load up via hdmi lead this works both ways going from sd to hd, failing that have both connections plugged in both scart and hdmi lead then change the settings to hdmi when viewing through scart connector then flick to hdmi input and hey presto its worked.........

Cant get no picture on tv via hdmi or scart was working suddenly stopped


Youve gotta reset your console,,and make sure you switch the video back when you get back on,,if its the ps3 ,,check your manual,, it tells u how to reset,, if the 360,, i would say check the same ,,hdmi is high def,, and scart is analog 480i thats why , must be reset. ,, unless you get a scart cable with component jacks ,, thats 1080i,, hdmi is either or 720p,,1080p,,1080i,,good luck

I have had my ps3 connected to my hdmi lcd but now when i connect via the scart plug on an older tv no picture appears how do i sort this


This is because your PS3's Display Output it set to HDMI, therefore the SCART isn't active. I believe the PS3 has a video reset. This should be how it's done:

1. Shutdown your PS3 if you haven't done this yet.
2. Press and hold the powerbutton. It should beep once for power on and shortly afterwards beep again.

You'll have picture on the other cables and the resolution is reset to 480p. You can change the settings now.

You'll probably have to do this again when you plug it in to your LCD with HDMI again.

I hope this helps, please don't forget to rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
