Make sure all the video cable connections are plugged firmly into the back of the PS3
The sound you are hearing indicates that you are on the right track. To get the video to work you will need to select the correct channel on your TV set. Connect the video cables (yellow) to the video INPUT of the AV port of your TV and then change to the AV channel on your TV set to view the picture.

Please let me know if this did not fix your problem
Cheers

    It sounds like a typical loading error which would point to 2 main issues.
    1. your disc is either dirty or scratched.
    2. Your laser is out of alignment and needs to be tuned or replaced

    Typically it is the disc that is at fault.

    Try to troubleshoot by doing the following.

    1. Try another disc. Preferably a new disc as then you can be absolutely sure that the disc is not scratched.
    2. Try unplugging all the cables and then plug them back in again making sure they are all firm

    If there is still no joy after this it is still possible that your AV connection is damaged. This is rare so if you can get hold of another set of working AV leads that is ideal. Maybe take your unit into the store with your game and see if they can try another set of AV leads with your game, or try your game in their machine.

    If you cant get to a store and the first 2 options did not solve the issue you may need to send your unit in to get the laser aligned or replaced.

    Hope this has helped

First connect the PS3 to the TV you want it on. Then try resetting the display resolutions on the PS3 by holding the power button for a few seconds when the PS3 is off until you hear 3 beeps. That should re-detect the video and should solve your problem. Hope this helps!

You need to reset the video setting on the PS3. Simply hold down the power on button for about 5 seconds and you'll hear the system beep. After the beep release and it should come up fine.

Playstation 3 not coming on the tv


Try flipping the switch in the back of the PS3 off and then on so the light on the front is red... Then, hold down the power button on the front of the PS3 for about 5 seconds until you hear a "beep"... This should reset the audio/video, and you'll be able to see and hear everything... Just did it myself!!!

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony
