Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Something Wrong with PS3

I was watching a movie on my PS3 (has HDMI setting) and I accidentally fell asleep and the system was not turned off. This Morning I saw it was still on, I turned the tv on and it was in the XMB menu as someone had taken out the disk, I put it back in and when the movie started there was a purplish shade instead of how it was supposed to look. The Image is still there but now there it a purplish shade. Also there is no sound( I tried audio from the audio cables and HD cable for HDMI and there was still no sound). I tried both video and audio on A/V and it worked perfectly. Is it the system that doesn't work or is it the HDMI cable or the TV(Is a Westinghouse HDTV, everything worked perfectly before: the cable, system, and TV).

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.


What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.

I put a movie on my playstation pirrana 3D watched it in 2D and now when I try to play a game or watch a movie it comes up with a warning saying things like you my experience discomfort whilst watching 3d...


If you can see the screen for the PS3 dashboard before playing the game I would suggest trying to reset all your video display settings on the PS3 first then try it again. If you changed any settings on your tv try setting them to defaults. The PS3 system has an auto video adjustment system built into it and sometimes it has a brain fart and gets locked up on a specific setting and doesn't want to change back by itself. One way to try for resetting the video settings on the system is turning off the power switch on the back of the system with it on instead of the regular power button on the front.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

No picture no sound


If you are using HDMI sometimes an improper shutdown will cause the HDMI "Handshake" to get confused.Try going to the Crossbar (Menu) on the PS3 2nd coluom from the left and down to Display Settings. Choose the appropiate output settings and use AUTOMATIC whenever possible. After that Set your Audio again use AUTO. Never plug in HDMI cables when Power is on it can and will short out that Input!! Good Luck!

No sound with games


go into the system settings on your ps3 and check the sound options, make sure the sound output for games is set correctly, check any of the other settings that applies to sound output. some games are encoded in surround sound, also check to make sure your ps3 has the latest updates.

New ps3 turns all of my blu-ray movies into a pink screen


On the XMB go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI)

Give that a shot, and if not poke around a bit and ultimately you could do a system restore as well. Not sure if those will solve your problem, but it's a good place to start.

PS3 - green Bar when playing blue ray on my 50" Phillips Plasma


Green bar or border is due to wrong AV Setting. To resolve this just insert the Blue-Ray DVD and begin to play. Press the Triangle button and select "AV Setting", in AV Setting change Video Output to RGB.
