PS3 and HDMI cable

 dollyonthekill -

We disconnected the PS3 from the HDTV to play a blue ray on another HDTV. When we went to switch it back again, the original TV is just displaying a no signal.

No matter the setting, we can't get it to pick up the signal again through the HDMI cable. Any ideas before I go crazy from calling Envision?

System Configuration: Windows XP Internet Explorer 7.0

Hold down the power button for 5 seconds and it will reset the image settings.

Hope, it will help!

I tried very other solution offered by the other sites. This worked perfectly. You are the dude.
thnx soooooooo much dat helped me allot I luv u mate thanxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxsssss
I pressed it for 5 seconds but, still no picture. Any suggestions?
So your Playstation 3 is on with no signal. Hold down the start button on the the console till it beeps then turns off. Start it back up the same way hold down the button till it beeps again and it will be reset to the RCA cables.You will be able to tell if it worked by the no signal screen going black then it goes to the PS3 screen. If this doesn't work hook it back up through the HDMI cables and go to video setting and it will say HDMI and 2 other options. HDMI being the top one. Pick the bottom setting of the 3 with a bunch of different letters with the / through them.That should solve your problem.
yeah I tried holding it down but it never worked and then I hooked it upto the av cable but it still never worked
can someone plz help me?? I went from a HMDI plug in to a tv that has components (Y, Pb/Cb, Pr/Cr, S-Video). at first I had nothing "no signal".. then I did the reset thing and that gave me visual, only problem now is no sound!?..all cords are pluged in the right holes and its a new cord
Ok heres the deal, I had my playstation 3 at my friends house and he has a hd tv and hdmi cables so we were playing my ps3 on his tv and used the hdmi, did that little update thing and was playing in hd :D

but now I am back home on my old crappy tv, got the yellow and white cords in and cant see the screen, I tried holding down the button for 5 seconds but after about 3 the playstation beeps and it just turns off.. pls help
turn off the system so the light on the front is res, then hold down/ touch where the power singnal is for about 5 seconds thatb should reset it back to its original settings
ohh thanks man you just made my day!!!

this does work its great !!!!!!!

thanks heeps
Ok, so I hooked the HDMI cable up to the PS3 and TV< everything was right and only the sound came through. I Also went to settings and tried all the HD settings. It was originally set to Automatic and it still didn't work. Any suggestions?
you have to turn your ps3 off while the HD cable is still in and then turn it back on manually without the controller and give it a couple seconds, mine did the same thing
press and hold down the power button until it beeps.
does all this apply on both ps3 or just the slim ps3 or just the fat ps3?
Both ps3s mate
ello . right so I hooked up my slim-lined ps3 with hd cable, I have sound but no picture ??? what in the world.
i went out & brought a new hdmi cable £30:00 to b exact that was on half price the curry's assistant said, still very good sound , just no picture !!! help me please ! humph
ok mate, what you do is... you hold down the power button on the ps3 (when on standby) for 5 secs, you will here a bleep around the 5 second mark, when you hear this bleep, take your finger off the button, give it a few seconds and you will get display :D:D

good luck (Y) :)
thanks! It worked
You Rock....holding it down for 5 second did the trick. You are a lifesaver!
hobaaaa it worked you're my king!!
it doesnt work.. when I press it all it does is turn off and then turn on.. same result.. =[

I understand this but the bad part is that neither of us can see an image on our tv right now. We have to do this like we are blind.
