Have you gotten a new cable such as an HDMI? If you have and you have that cable plugged in revert to the old cable (take out new one), turn on the PS3 go to settings and go to the section display. Plug the new cable back in and select the new one. Your screen should go black then a screen will appear asking you to accept the new display choose yes and go on gaming. If you've already done that then try holding the Power button on the front of the PS3 for 10 seconds to revert it to the most basic resolution. It should work. If not then either call Sony or the place that you got the cable from (presuming you got a new one). Hope this helps.

Picture wont show up on TV from PS3


Make sure the cables are properly connected and nothing is loose. Try turning off your TV and PS3 and disconnect and then connect all the cables back. Try using another cable, if you have HDMI try another cable.

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.

No video or sound


Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.

Thanks,
Ced

My ps3 turns on but don't show any picture!! HELP ME PLEASE!!


All you have to do is this: While it's off(red light is on) hold down the ON button until it turns on then turns back off. Now just turn it back on normally and it should greet you with display settings. Hope this works!

Turns on fin sometime it wont turn on the freezes n shows lines


if you left it in your car with heat or even let it get too cold you may have caused damage. PS3 machines also say do not transport in the instructions especially with a disc inside this to me says their game system is really fragile and theirs a possibility you broke it even with the slightest bump.

PS3 freezes...shows colored "specs" on screen.


This is a common problem with the PS3. sadly you cant do anything for it. The only think you can really do is to get your PS3 replaced cause sadly your PS3 has suffered dome physical damage for sure.
