Hold the power button down till you hear it beep 2 times, this will reset the video settings. If this does not work, you will probably have to call Sony on the 800 number that came with your playstation3 and give tech support a call. They will send you a box with prepaid postage and hanling. As long as its still under warranty, they will cover the cost of fixing it for free.

How to change or reset PS3 Video Display Mode


When you attach your Play Station 3 to an HD TV through an HDMI port, the Play Station 3 will ask you if you wish to switch to HD Mode.

However, if you decide to move it to another TV that is not HD compatible, you will get no picture because the Play Station 3 is “stuck” in HD (HDMI) mode.

Follow these steps to resolve your problem:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release. This should reset the video settings.

4. Wait a few seconds, and the Play Station 3 (PS3) logo should appear.

If this does not resolve the problem, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button on the front until the Play Station 3 beeps and then turns off again. This should reset the video for you and you can turn it back on after this.



That’s it! You can play your Play Station 3 again!

I can hear sound but have no display on my Xbox 360


If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

If you stop the heat getting to the display chips you will be fine!

Its not showing picture its blank


hi
play station 3 is equipped with 550mhz nvidia/sceirsx graphics.so may be due to lack of display capacity of your moniter/tv. Or may be due to the loose connections of cord to the tv or from the play station .
