Moved playstation to friends tv played fine. Connected back to my tv power lights come on but No sound or picture yet all cables are ok


You need to reset the display, follow these steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to start up with normal display settings. If you are using HDMI make sure only the HDMI cable is connected when doing the above steps.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa
