My PS3 is only showing black and white Help please!

2 replies 105 views Edited Jan 2, 2013

I just got a new HD flat screen and my PS3 is only showing black and white now.  What can I do to fix it?  It worked fine on my old TV, but now is not.  Do I need to buy a new HDMI cable to connect vs the component cable?  Help please.  thanks

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

An HDMI cable would be ideal for your new TV, if you have one use it.

 

Try resetting the video/audio settings, you can do this by doing the following:

 

1. Have the TV on your usual channel for gaming.

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

3. Hold down the power/on/off button on the PS3 until you hear 2 beeps.

4. A message should appear on your TV screen.

5 Hit the "X" button to accept the new settings.

 

You should now be fine, let me know if you need more assistance.
