I think your best bet for this is to call Sony. Seems like a hardware problem.

My problem is earlier today i was playing my ps3, the picture was showing on the t.v. ( a HDMI Cable conected it to the tv), but 30 minutes later, i tried to play my ps3, the picture was not showing up...


Sounds like your video settings are wrong. Since you were on the HDMI connection the video was outputting in HD. When you switched over to normal AV (composite) cables the video was still outputting in HD.

Simple fix: power off your PS3 (so it's in standby; red light is showing). Then turn it back on, using the power button on the console (not the PS3 controller) and hold down the power button until it beeps a second time (about 5 seconds). The video settings will reset to composite. If needed, change your video settings.

Normally I'd put down like 3 other things it could be (each worse than the last), but I'm fairly certain that this will fix it. If it doesn't, just say so and I have many a more potential fix available.

Hope it works!

I bought my ps3 in london and now im in Paris the ps3 turns on but wont turn off and it doesn't show up on the screen and the controller keeps on beeping none stop


Easy to solve, the way to turn off the ps3 is simply hold the power button until you hear one beep, then let go. That way you wont have to go to the menu, and your controller beeps because it is low on battery try using a charger that connects to the ps3

Turned off incorrectly, now it won't show desktop


Dear,
you may try to use the PS3 recovery options.
The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this:
  1. Make sure the PS3 is turned off
  2. Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off.
  3. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try)
  4. It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable,
  5. Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu.
Please rate my solution ++++ if it was helpful, or feel free to ask for more information. Thank you

My ps3 will turn on but wont show a picture on the tv or give sound


Reset the video settings by turning on the ps with only the power cable plugged in, when turning on continue to hold the power button until you hear a second set of beeps then turn off the console.
Boot up the ps and plug in your av/hdmi cable and you should have picture and sound.

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.

Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.
