Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 on, No Pic or Sound?

Ok, so here's the deal: I got my PS3 from a friend of mine a couple of months ago. The green power light is operational. No picture or sound however. I'm playing on a basic TV set. I have tried everything from removing the HDD, to the 10 second calibration, to changing A/V cables, to trying different outlets and TV sets. I even called Sony and asked for troubleshooting advice and they cannot answer me. I know nothing is fried on the count of the system working shortly prior to receiving it.

anyone please help. my only other option is to send it to Sony for $150 to be fixed. But I Guarentee it's something very simple.

Turn on ps3, light truns green for a second then turn red with a beeping noise?


I had this problem not a few months ago. It is the beginning of the yellow light of death syndrome. Sony can repair it if it is in warranty, or there are independent chains that also do repairs. The price to repair mine (replacing the optical drive) was $130.

Please try the following steps to solve your PS3 problem :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

PS3 no picture or sound


The hardware has become damaged.

There are a number of things within the PS3 that can very easily go wrong if you drop it.

The hard-drive, the very sensitive calibrated blu-ray disc drive, lasers, magnets, all kinds of things.

You need to call Sony support and send it away to be repaired or replaced.

If you're still in warranty then this will be free. If not, it cost a friend of my £80 a couple of months ago.

Ps3 not recognising ps3 games and movies


Sounds like it could be failure of the Blu-ray drive. A friend of mine had the same issue.

Contact Sony support and if it's under warranty they will fix it free of charge (here in Australia they do anyway).
