Tip & How-To about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi everybody, i have seen alot of questions on here that refer to people getting blank screens (no signal) when turning on their ps3 (usually after using it with a HDMI cable but not always) if you are using a standard AV cable (scart or the red/white/yellow leads) and you dont get a picture most of the time all you need to do is
1, Turn on your console at the back so the res standby light comes on
2, Hold down the on/off button on the front for several seconds untill you hear the single beep followed by another single beep then release to reset video settings to default
3, If this did not work, when on standby, hold down the on/off button but when it double beeps do not let go, just keep holding until it switches off then do the same again this time it will double beep when you hear this let go, you will need to plug you pad in with the usb cable to continue.
Hope this helps
