1. turn off system completely (this means the switch on the back)
2. hold touch sensitive reset button down till you hear 3 beeps, than let go.
3. hold down touch sensitive reset button until you hear 2 beeps and a double beep.

seems to work the best)
5. follow on screen directions

I AM TRYING TO RECONNECT MY PS3 ON MY LCD TV AFTER 2 WEEK BEEING DISCONNECTED AND IT DOESNT SEEM TO WORK THREW HDMI CABLE! IT SAYS THAT HDMI CABLE WAS DETECTED BUT WHEN I AM ON HDMI CHANNEL ON TV THERE IS...


I think maybe the following steps might help you out :

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

My ps3 will play disk but i have no home start up screen. it appears black although you can hear the sounds as you scroll through the menu


First thing you should try is a manual video reset.

While the PS3 is off (red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, QUICKLY release.

That will reset the video.

Let me know if that works.

My ps3 screen goes black when i start playing games


try changing the resolution settings on the ps3 itself to match your tv because if the tv cant handle 1080p then dont set it to it, going into a game changes the resolution to mach the games rated one

Everything is connected, i can hear it, but cant see it


The previous answer is partly right. Are you both using HDMI, or are you changing connection method. If you change method, you must reset the graphics settings, which can be a bit tricky without a screen. Turn off your PS3, then Press AND HOLD on the Power Symbol for some time, or until you hear the beeps, and the flight flashes green, then, it should work.

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted


This is happening because your console is not recognizing the HDD (hard drive) for what ever reason. The corrupted files are about to do damage to your console, and a PS3 will not turn on if it thinks further damage will occur. Here are two things you can do;
1. Try accessing the HDD reset menu. Here's how you do this: With a solid red light showing, hold down both the power & eject buttons. You're going to hear a single beep, then a double beep. Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. You'll get a message on your TV saying "connect your controller using USB". Following all the instructions will lead you to a 6 item menu. You are going to choose number 3. If that option doesn't work, pick number 6. BE WARNED!!! Number 6 will delete ALL of your saved memory! I know that really sucks, but this may be the only way to save your console short of repair. You can "back-up" your saved data using a "USB storage device" Like a memory stick or even your iPod.
If none of this works, or the console just won't let you do the "double button" thing, it'll need to be repaired. You can contact PSR repairs at www.psr1.com. They are really great! They do both warranty & non-warranty repair work for a very decent price. I hope I helped. Good luck, Indra!

My ps3 is not working the screen is just black and cant get any thing from it the ps3 is turend on but nothing coming up on scree can you help me


press and hold power button until it reset
you gonna hear a beepor go to next step:

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).

Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
