no signal on Composite
no signal on Composite –
just recieved a NTSC/J PS3 model Number CECHG 40GB ,I checked the HDMI and its working fine ,tested the AV multi-out connector with my PS2's component cabels and got it to work too .still the composite doesnt work (tested on my CRT TV) .while my 80Go CECHL PAL works as its supposed to do
so what is the problem ? is it cause of my european TV ,but my TV supports both NTSC and PAL 60Hz ,I had dozen of NTSC/J consoles and they worked fine (PSone/PS2/Dreamcast)
additional info :F/W v3.15
checked the display output on the system settings and switched from HDMI to Composite but still no luck
any help would be appreciated
I'm not sure if this helps, but I had an issue with switching from HDMI-DVI in my LCD monitor back to Component in my non-HDTV. After going back to Component, I was getting a black screen because I set my Display Settings > Video Output Settings manually to HDMI and it wouldn't let me switch it back to Component while still connected to my LCD monitor. So I had to memorize the exact steps of how to change the Video Output Settings back to Component, while connected to my non-HDTV with a blank screen, since my PS3 was still forcing HDMI as the video output.
Hardware: PS2 v7 (GH-022) NTSC | Crystal Chip 2.0 Pro SLE | Sony Network Adapter | 300GB Segate HDD
Software: uLaunchELF 4.40 | HDLoader 0.8c | HDL_Dump 0.8.6+GUI | SMS 2.9 (Rev.3)
My Projects: uLaunchELF - skins/template | skin template readme | documentation (contributor)
Thanks buddy ,but i really still need help
some useful info:
1-HDTV +Component = OK
2-HDTV +HDMI = OK
3-HDTV+Component(switch the display to Yellow/white/red on the PS3 menu)= OK /576i
keep the same configurations but using YWR(yellow white red) cabel and jump to step 4
4-CRT +YWR cabel = blank screen (screen doesnt move at all as nothing is connected)
I can provide any other details if needed ,so please help i wanna sell this system and i dont want to come in trouble with the buyer ,the system still virgin ,never opened ,the label is on its place with no traces of being removed
The best way to get a PS3 back into composite mode, is to do the long reset mode.
Hook up the PS3 to your CRT TV, and using the original Yellow/White/Red cable.
With the machine in Red Standby mode, put your finger on the power button, BUT leave it there, and continue to leave it there, the system should turn on, and then after a while turn back off.
Once off, lift your finger on the power button, wait a second, then turn on the system normally, by just tapping the power button.
The screen should flash, and after a few seconds the system should display.
If this does not work, try the super-long reset (or safe/recovery mode).
Same as above, but on the second power-up, again leave your finger on the power button until the system beeps TWICE really quick in a row, remove your finger, and after a few seconds the system should display connect a usb cable, and after you sync the controller display 6 options.
Pick the "restore default settings" and then it should work normally on all TV's
have just done what you told me but no luck
I noticed that there's no sound on YWR cabel ,are they using the same audio pins on the connector like the Component ?
Yep, it uses the same audio pins for both component or composite.

For the PS3 itself to be bad it is rare but possible, but you should get sound no matter what.
thanx for your reply
I tested my YWR cabel with both PS/PS2 and it seemed to work just fine with smooth sound and picture
Does anyone have some similar problem on a NTSC/J PS3 ?
Is it a hardware issue ?
What country are you in? -- A NTSC one I guess?

I'm from Morocco PAL just like Europe ,most of the consoles here are PAL with XXXX04
the power is 220\240V ,i had no problem at all with all of my Japanese consoles
anyway tomorrow I'll try a RF and scart cabels and see
BTW Japan has been using 110\120V in the PS1\SATURN/Dreamcast/PS2 era ,how came they switched to 220V without getting rid of milliards of electric/electronic devices ?
About the word MILLIARD ,I dont think you're familliar with it ,if so it means billion in the US/Canada
