Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

Scary Lead, I assume you mean Scart Lead?

 

Have you tried resetting your PS3's video/audio settings?

 

If not do so like this:

 

1. Have the TV on your regular gaming channel you use.

2. Have the PS3 turned off, in standby/red-light mode.

3. Now hold down the power/on/off button until a message appears on the TV screen.

4. Press 'X' to accept the settings.

 

You should now be good to go, any other problems let us know.

I'm having the same issue on an older PS3.  I've had it for about 3 years now it has always worked on my tv.  It worked as recently as twelve hours ago.

 

I run the video and audio through a sony brand sound bar.  

 

I tried the hdmi cable into my laptop and image and audio worked fine.  

 

I've tried about ten different combinations of powering things on and off and none of it seems to work. 

 

This post states holding the button until a message appears on the screen; how long should that take?

 

 

Thanks for any help I can get.
