Try resetting the video output settings. They may not be appropriate for your new tv.
Press and hold the power button until you hear two beeps while it is off.

If you've had this happen with two systems in a row, then it may not be the systems. First, try hooking up the PS3 directly to the TV, or another TV, and see if the issue still occurs. If it does, then something between the PS3 and the TV is causing your issue. Otherwise, call and get it replaced again, and hope the issue doesn't happen again.

Unit is turning on but no picture. just brought new


Trouble shoot: Make sure cables are in tight. and corrected to the correct tv input Test your HDMI cable on another device. (is it working) Make sure your TV is set to the correct input. Try another device on your TV's HDMI input.(working?) Try anolog hookup instead of HDMI (is that working)

It turns on but nothing shows up on the screen. i had it set to hdmi on a different tv but now it doesnt wrk n the new one. and it doesnt work with the original cords either


does the console even turn on?

if so
  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

Try a video reset first.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

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

Let me know if that solves your problem otherwise it's a corrupt file system.

Ps3 turns on but doesnt show on screen...what to do???


You should try reseting the video setting.
When you have the PS 3 on Stand by (Red Light), press the reset button, but do not let go. The system will beep a few times and then go back into Stand By Mode(Red Light).
Reboot the system again and video should be back to normal throw the AV port.
