Ps3 display issues

I have been running my ps3 with an HDMI cable and have never had any issues until i went to get my daily dose of madden last night. to my dismay i was unable to play the game. my tv kept displaying the "no signal" text on the middle of the blue screen. i have never experienced this problem or any similar before. any ideas on why this may be happening and any ideas on how to remedy the problem?

Check if all the connections are fine..remove the HDMI cable and re insert..might be a loose thing somewhere..make sure the PS3 is powered with the green light on..all the best!

1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

It's actualy an easy fix. The problem you are having, is resetting the video options on your PS3. It auto detects HDMI or A/V cables. Here is a vid of how to do it. Again, really easy. Remember, this works with EVERY PS3 system.

My PS3 isn't working. I put in Madden 2011 and it just shows a blue and green light in the front of the console but nothing comes up on my tv screen. What could this issue be?


Your video settings may be scrambled. Have you recently tried using different cables?

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds) Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go. It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 1-5. If you do not see this menu, chances are, your motherboard has gone bad and will need to be sent in for service.

Be sure to try using HDMI cables and AV (component) cables.

Just bought a ps3 two weeks ago. Played games just fine and everything worked well. We watched a movie last night. Turned off the system and went to bed. The next morning we tried turning it on but it...


This may be a simple fix. Do you still have the original cable that came with it for the video OUT? Plug this back into your playstation and TV while leaving the HDMI cable connected.
check now both HDMI channels and AV/Composite options on your source selection this should give you the display,
Now what we need to do is setup your HDMI output again.
From the menu bar,
  • Go to settings
  • Display Settings
  • Video output settings
  • choose HDMI
if you have the choice to choose OK choose it. If your screen goes blank go through your HDMI channels again and if the Playstation screen is there then select OK,
Then you can remove the composite cable again

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!
