PS3 Help!!?


Ok heres how it goes. I usually have my PS3 hooked up to a standard definition TV with the yellow/red/white cable. The other day i took my PS3 to my cousins house and hooked it up to his HDTV with a HDMI cable. when i turned it on it told me that it detected a HDTV and HDMI cable and told me that it could change some settings to make the picture better. I let it change the settings and thought nothing of it. The problem is that when i hooked it back up to the original TV i got no picture or sound. How do i get my PS3 to start displaying again.

  1. you know what my friend had the same problem. what you need the do is you need to change it back from hdmi to av input

    by going to your ps3 display settings in the ps3 dashboard.

    settings>display settings>video output settings>AV MUTI/SCART

    and o yea if you didnt know in order to change it back you need to back on your cousin’s house hooked it up back to the hdtv because the current video output is in hdmi

    P.S. sorry

  2. when it has red light hold standby button for 5 seconds and then you should have picture and sound

  3. It should be detecting the new hook up on its own but it’s not. You may want to try turning the power off in the back of the unit. If that doesn’t work, you’ll need to go back to your friends house – so you can actually see the display – and then go into the tools and set it back to standard output and 480i resolution.

  4. Look dude all you need to do is turn off your ps3, and then press the on button down for some seconds until the console says a “beep” sound. That beep sound indicate that you have restarted the ps3 back to it’s fabric state, with all the start configurations. The bad side of this is that all saved files on it will be deleted and it will go back to exactly how it was when you bought it.

    If you don’t want to do that and delete all your configurations you could set it up via a hdmi cable on a hd tv and then set it back to standard av cable. the way you do that is as follows.

    Go to settings, scroll down to display settings, go into video output settings, and choose AV MULTI/SCART.

    Good luck.

  5. if you just complete a few quick tasks on this site they’ll send you a playstation 3, completely free of charge!!

  6. Connect it to your friends house connect hdmi and standard cable bot on the same time go to settings change it back to regulaur in the audio and image settings or. turn it off three times and then turn the main power off after the 10 times and when you do that wait a minute and then turn it back on.
