When entering a game I hear sound but no picture. Plugged in correctly and TV set to HDM11.


If you are sure that you have your TV on the correct input, you can try resetting the PS3's video settings using the following procedure:

  1. Before changing cables, make sure the PlayStation 3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back of the PlayStation 3 (the 0 side is pressed down).

  2. Unplug the power cord of the PlayStation 3 and television (or display) from the wall socket.

  3. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PlayStation 3 system.

  4. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.

  5. Plug the PlayStation 3 and television (or display) back in to the wall socket.

  6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PlayStation 3 back on (the line on the power button is now pressed).

  7. While the PlayStation 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.

  8. Turn ON the PlayStation 3 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 TV/monitor).

Do you need a hd tv to use a playstation 3


Hi there, no you don't need an HD tv to use a playstation 3. You can use a standard AV cable that has 3 connectors that go to your tv, a red, white and yellow connector. This is for use on standard tv's. As long as you have these inputs into your TV then you can use it.

Obviously the advantages of HD are that graphics are much more vivid and watching blu rays in true high definition is always a bonus.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

No, but you do have to select HDMI output in the settings in the PS3 menu and make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI input ( Whatever one you plugged your PS3 into)

Playstation 3 hook up


If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • 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.
If that does not help try contacting sony at

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


All: Try this -

P
erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
  1. 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.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 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 TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
