I would try getting a replacement from Wal-Mart.If that doesn't work,send it in to Sony.If you have a warranty,the cost is free i beleive.However without a warranty,There is a 150$ repair fee,Which is cheaper than whole new PS3

I turn the ps3 on but the video doesn't appear. i checked the tv and cords and nothing was wrong with them.

Did you check that the AV cords are plugged in right? Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow? Are they properly connected in the back of the PS3 not loose connections? It could also be that the PS3 display settings are at a really high resolution for your T.V. Try reset the PS3 resolution settings back to factory settings by turning the PS3 off and then hold down the power button for 3-5 seconds and you will hear some beeps it will load your PS3 resolution at 480i. Should give you your screen back.

Hi i bought call of duty. i updated my ps3 when i first put the game in and it worked fine , but now when i turn my ps3 on ,nothing happens. the power is going to the ps3 , but nothing comes up on the tv ,...

This will be something to do with the av cable or the HDMI lead. try replace them. if it still doesn't work, Message back to me and i'll have a in-dept look at your situation.
Have a great day. Thanks

My ps3 wont show picture on any tv, even tried the old white, red and yellow cord and still nothing, any ideas on whats wrong with it?

You have said you have tried the standard AV cable but have you reset the PS3 back to standard definition? Do this by holding the power button down for 5 seconds. It will revert to standard definition after that.

Hope this helps

My ps3 has 80130182 error. i dont know what to do. can you help?

first try this: turn off the feature allowing you to connect to a media device under network.

if it still is not working try this: you are going to need the cord to connect the ps3 and the modem.
-turn the modem off.
-take the power cord out of the back
-unplug the usb cord from the back
-connect the cord in both the ps3 and the modem
-plug power cord back in
-all the lights will show up and then the orange light will be the only one on
-turn it back on
then you have to go to your network settings on your ps3
make the connection wired and anything that you can make automatic do that.
That is the best I can do. This error seemed to be lot more prevalent when Sony put out it's ps3 2.60 update. Hope this helps.

The picture on my t.v when i turn on my ps3 goes black and white with a section of it at the top gone a fuzzy green colour. how do i get rid of this and put colour back on the screen

First of all hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds. YOu should hear a couple of beeps. That is resetting the video to the ps3. Power it back up. If you have it hooked up through hdmi try the other av cordes it came with. ALso try unpluging and plugging back in the av cords. If that does not work then I dont know.

No hdmi output

hmm.. it could be ur tv.. or u playstation, its most likely its ur tv because it plays on AV, open the back up and take the memory catrage out then put back in. (this does not break any waranty u have on it because ps3 incourages u to open it up and get a higher gb mem pack)

AV Cable Problems

try turning your tv on the input that you have the ps3 plugged in. Then with your ps3 on standby (the red light is on), hold the power button until the second beep. This resets the video settings
