PS3 Works on HD TV without Sound, no sound or display on a reg TV

I went to my friends house and played my PS3 upstairs on one of his regular TVS and it worked fine. Later one we decided to put it on his parents huge HD TV downstairs. We got it all hooked up and when the PS3 Loaded and went to the main screen it played sound. When I played a game there was no sound. Now I brought it home got it hooked up and ready to play and now it won't work at all. No screen no sound nothin. It'll turn on... sound like its loading the game thats in it but no screen no sound.

MY SCREEN IS BLANK MY TV IS NON HDMI AND SO WAS

  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

My PS3 has stopped playing voice overs.. / commentary on FIFA 09

When powering on ps3 hold the power on button until it beeps. then it will ask you a series of questions. I answered yes to each question and it solved the problem. Fwiw, I had this problem with not only blu ray but also regular dvds.

My ps3 doest display anything nor makes any sounds please help

Just a gander, but your PS3 may be set for HD output thus not displaying on your non HD television, your best bet in this case is to find an HD television, friend, coworker, etc, connect to it and switch the settings back to regular. Also if I understand correctly leaving the ps3 completely unplugged for 72 hours may also reset all settings. Good luck!

PS3 not working on reg tv's after HDMI use on LCD HD tv

Shelley,  the fix for this is simple! Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and the system will beep. This resets the video setting for your ps3 from HD too whatever the current cables are that you are using too hook up too the tv. This works on my PS3 which I just bought about 3 months ago and should work with the older ones.

Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films

I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

Solution

You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.
