A/V will not work on PS3

I can't get my AV multi to work properly on my PS3. It works fine when the HDMI is connected, but when I switch to A/V all i hear is sound. I tried reseting it about 7000 times, and i tried switch the settings to a/v multi out on the PS menu. Is My A/V multi output broken?

Hold the reset button while the system is off for approximately 5 seconds, you will hear a series of beeps from the system which will indicate a 'formal' reset has been made

a 'master' or 'hard' reset will actually wipe your systems data and restore the system back to factory settings... which will cause you to lose all your save game and profile data...

Their are a coulpe of different A/V settings within the A/V settings menu. Probably the easiest way may be to plug up your A/V cable and switch the TV to that input then turn the system on with the button on the front. Then trun it off with that button, by holding it down untill the system goes off. Then push the power button down again and hold it down, then the system will turn back on and beep at u, continue to hold it down, until it beeps again(5sec. maybe). This resets the system to factor settings, but do not tell it to master reset or what ever it asks you to reset on the screen when it returns, or it will mess up your saved files. Some of your saved games will not reload if you accept the reset.

My monitor was working perfectly fine until I unplugged it to play on ps3 so when i did the ps3 wouldnt connect i tried holding down the ps3 button nothing so i plugged back into laptop no connection.


Have you used the HDMI cable with the PS3 before? it may be configured to use the AV connection. If so plug in an AV lead, then you would need to find in the settings to change the output to HDMI.

The HDMI cable may not work

Press windows key and P to switch between monitor modes

Try those and post back if you need more help.

Fixed ps3 ylod but now no picture and sound. what could this be? and how could i fix it?


If your tv output it av (red white and yellow cables and av connection), then make sure you push the cables in properly. If that doesn't work then if you have a ps2, use that av cable and switch it with your ps3 one (theyre both the same). And if your output is hdmi, than either the cable is faulty, the tv or the ps3. And for av connection if none of those options worked then its probably your ps3.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv


The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    PS3 doesn't work with tv anymore


    did you move the ps3 while it was on. If you did the reset for AV should repair both the AV problem and your HDMI as well. Shoot me a message back if it works or doesn't.

    try connecting A/V rca cable first. go to ur diplay settings and then to video output settings in it select av multi. don't use HDMI settings let it automatically ask u when u plug in hdmi cable. Then switch to HDMI cable. I had a problem like this before with a ps3 that i had bought used. hdmi was set up and it took forever to set it up with rca cords. took many times power on and offs and unplugging video cords for it to reset. . not sure. Now when u plug in your hdmi on any tv it should automatically set up. and you have settings for a/v as backup. the other thing is it could be the just the port or cable.

    Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


    I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

    I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

    Cheers

    Hello can you help with this error!


    When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.

    Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.

    Hope this helps.
