My ps3 will boot up and the green light is on but i cannot see what is being displayed.
i once changed the settings from the three prong to HDMI cable and since then i have not been able to view anything (hear aswell). My tv isn't HD so i don't know whats happening please help...
i have had my friends try and guide me through the process of changing to the three prong from the HDMI but so far it hasn't worked (via the phone)
To all those who cannot see any display..hold down the on/off button until it beeps once, then wait a few seconds until it beeps again, the ps3 will have reset itself and will adjust the visual settings to fit your tv
I've this before. I connected my PS3 to HDTV via HDMI cable and for sound I've AVR connected via opitcal cable. The sound are playing well, but I got no luck on display. I checked HDMI, Component, AV cables, but still I got nothing even with resting PS3 setting (holding power button 5 seconds in the start-up). Then I turned of my TV for couple minutes then I turn it on, with my previous cables setup, and resting PS3 setting again, I turned on the PS3 and I got the display.
The system does not load discs. At the start up screen there is a little green dot in the upper right hand corner saying that the system wants to load disc, however for some odd reason it does not load.

Playstation 3's will not output display information via usb, it does although have a traditional Playstation style connector port for displaying via component cable/ AV cable. To switch to this display setting without having access to an HDMI television press and hold the power button until the PS3 beeps for a second time. Pressing once it will beep but continue holding until the device beeps again and it will boot into a display "safe mode" and ask you to verify your display settings.
What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.
Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the
back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI
cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the
front of the system), hold down the
touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system
goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from:
red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This
will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to
reset the Video Output Settings.
Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering
up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard
resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your
If your display settings aren't set to automatic this can occur. Example: if you have set resolution to 1080i and are trying to play it on a display that has 1080p you will get a blank screen or no signal message. you will have to connect your PS3 to the last display you had an image on and change the "display setting" to "automatic" for your PS3 to work on all displays. when you choose a specific resolution to the "display settings" it will only work on that specific resolution. hope this helps.
I had a second playstation hooked to another tv in my home and took a controller from the non-LG-TV-displaying ps3 and one from a working ps3 on a seperate TV. And used the working ps3 to guide me to the settings menu on the ps3 that was not displaying video. Anyways, if you cannot see the tv screen because it is set on 1080p and your LG will not display it (Only displays up to 1080i). Start The PS3 and press the D-pad buttons in this order.
Left 10+ times. (This Takes you to the far left icon in the XMB) Right Once. (This is the settings icon) Down 20+ times. (To reach the bottom of the settings) Then Up 4 times (This is Display Settings) Press "X" Once. (This enters Display Settings) Press Up 5 times (This Makes Sure you are at the top of the sub-menu at Video Output Settings) Press "X" Once (This Enters Video Output Settings)
Before pressing any more buttons, Know what cables you have pluged into your TV. For HDMI Just Press "X" and it will auto adjust to for the new TV. For Component / D-Terminal Output Press Down Once Then "X", and X Again (This changed my ps3 from the 1080p-Invalid Format back to 1080i and fixed my problem. For Composite Video Output Press Down Twice, Then "X" and X again.
For AV MULTI / SCART Output Press Down Three Times, Then "X"and X again.
Green bar or border is due to wrong AV Setting. To resolve this just insert the Blue-Ray DVD and begin to play. Press the Triangle button and select "AV Setting", in AV Setting change Video Output to RGB.
