The "FROZEN VIDEO then PIXELATED VIDEO then NO VIDEO/" triad problem is all too common on the PS3. It results from gradual overheating of the RSX and/or CELL processor. The unleaded solder used in these machines XBOX360/PS3 often fails. In addition, if the ps3 also shuts down on its again own due to overheating. It is necessary to disassemble the unit and apply AS5 compound and shim the heatsinks to ensure proper contact between the heat sink and the processors.

You could always try a system reset:

Starting with the PS3 off... Hold Power button on PS3 for 10 seconds. When you hear the second beep, it has been reset.

Try this : When you put your ps3 on, hold the power button on the front of the console until it beeps 2 times, then the screen should start flashin and after that u'll get the chance to choose what resolution u want and so on.

When you hold down the power button like this, the screen goes back to default. Should fix your problem!

My ps3 powers up, but I get no picture or sound.


Put your PS3 in standby mode (hold the power button until the light turns red) then release, and hold the power button again for about 10 seconds, or until the light beeps a second time. When the PS3 restarts, it should display on whatever it finds plugged in first.

make sure there is no disc inside first as stupid as it sounds people do do it, when you go to turn the ps3 on hold down the eject button b4 you press the power one then turn the power on whilst stil holding the eject button, if this does nothing when you turn the ps3 off hold down the power button this should reset its settings which can be the cause of no display on your tv

Green light but no picture or sound.


First thing you wanna try is a manual video reset.

It's probably a good idea to hook up the regular av cables as well.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Let me know what happens.
