The PS3 is on, but it won't show on the TV screen?

I'm able to turn the PS3 on.. I've got it to work on an HD TV with the HDMI cables, with no problems..

but when I take it with a regular tv using the AV cables, it doesn't seem to work.. i mean, like i said.. the PS3 is on.. but nothing is showing up on the screen.. can anybody help me?

 I've got it to work on this TV before, which is why its frustrating..

 

if anybody can help, it would be greatly appreciated..

What you need to do is turn the playstation off till it is on the solid red light then turn it back on by holding your fingure down on the power button it will beep once initailly ten seconds later it will beep for a second time as soon as it beeps for time lift your fingure up off the power button. You should get a picture coming up. Make sure you either have HDMI or AV cables plugged in not both as this will confuse the system.

 

If that does not work try doing it on another TV with different cables if that still doesn't work contact technical support centre Aus 1300365911 or NZ 09 415 2447 as there is more likely then not a problem with your ports 11

Have you changed the AV settings from HDMI output to the output for the standard tv?

right when you had your ps3 you set it up for hd with hdmi once you've set it up its save with those settings, so when you take your ps3 and use a normal tv the picture goes blank. what you need to do its set it up for normal tv before you unplug it. If not you could hold down the power sencer till you hear 5 beeps that should reset it on any tv........hope that helps you

I'm having the same problem now. I've just tried to turn my ps3 on and all I can see is a black screen. anyone have any idea what's up with it, had it for about a year and had no problems before today.

 

Not got a hd tv either so don't know what it could be.

either you have a problem, or the PS3 has simply forgotten what source it should be using.

 

to solve the latter, try the 'hold the power for a few seconds until 5 bleeps' as mentioned in the above post - this resets all video output to default.

 

if that doesn't work, try the PS3 on a different TV - in case your TV is the problem.

I have the same problem with my PS3. I have it configured to my HDMI at my place. I took it to my dad's (forgot to switch back to AV) and plugged it in. The socket sparked when I plugged in the power cable, so I didn't think anything of it. I brought it back home to set it to AV, and I didn't have a picture, or audio. I tried doing the power sensor override, and nothing. I went out, bought new AV cables, a new HDMI cable, and a new power cable. I turned it on, and I got audio, but no video. I plug in the new HDMI cable, nothing.  I unplug it and I lose audio on AV. I kept trying the power sensor override, and NOTHING. PLEASE HELP!

I'm sorry, but despite reading that a few times, I got lost :(

could you list what works and what doesn't work when connecting with AV, and then again (separately) when using HDMI?

And are you doing the video settings reset in between swapping the leads? (from standby, hold front power button until 2 beeps)
