Tip & How-To about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

No Audio Blank Screen Video PS3 - SOLUTION

  1. Check video cables - Make sure they are secure and the TV has correct input selected.
  2. While the PS3 is OFF ( solid red light ): Hold DOWN the power button until your hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.
If that doesn't solve your problem: Remove the hard drive from the PS3.
Try the above steps again with the hard drive out.

If you still aren't receiving video or audio try connecting the PS3 to another TV and if possible, try different cables and different cable types: A/V (red,white, yellow) and HDMI.

If the above persists the problem is most likely related to the GPU on the motherboard. In this case I recommend contacting Sony direct for service.

when i tried to hook up my ps3 to my hd tv, it just was stuck on the blue hdmi screen the ps3 will turn on, but will not show up on any tv in the house, why is that? and how can i fix this from home, if possible?


First take the red white and yellow cable from your ps3 a/v cable
and plug that in to any tv that has these inputs and select the correct
a/v input on your tv. You should get a picture if not swap the the
cables for another set. This will establish your problem is with
the ps3 setting and not a failure of the console.

Then goto video settings menu on the ps3 and select hdmi out
not standered tv . The picture will disappear and your hdmi out
put should be active if you want to return to standered video using
the Red white yellow plugs again just turn off the console and
then hold the power button down for 5 secs this will reset the
console to standered video out.

if you need more assistance feel free to ask.

im plugging in my ps3 to the tv, the tv recognizes its there, but it still says no signal. everything is plugged in right..


Hi,

Try to reset the video settings on the PS3 and also make sure the cables are all attached and that you have the TV on the correct input source.

Turn the PS3 off so the red light is on. Hold down the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. Release the power button and press it again. That should have reset the video settings.

My playstation3 will turn on looks like it is working but my tv screen is blank nothing comes up


Hi,

Turn the PS3 off so the red light is on. Hold down the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. Release the power button and press it again.
That should have reset the video settings so you will be able to set the video settings again on the other TV and access the PS3 menu to set it up.


If there is anything else please post back.

how to fix ps3 when light flashes green,yellow, then red


Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.hello
