We had the same problem with ours. We had to call XBox company and we ended up shipping ours off to be fixed.

I have a 42 inch panasonic plasma tv, I have great picture and sound on hdmi input only


From a quick look at the tv spec it would seem to cope with most inputs so I wonder if it may be due to input type selection. Mine on some inputs have sub options on its inputs which would be in the screen menu (mine has rca sockets and can become component or normal video input).
You say you can hear sound but no picture which sugests there is a signal of some sort (tv's and video's inputs become live when a video signal is present but if its poor in some way will not show) but allow sound through.
If the game is old then it may not conform to modern standards so present a blank screen. its hard to say what may be the problem but I think input selection or an incompatible signal looks to be a possible answer (if you have your plug ins correct)

Hope this helps.....

When i turn my ps3 on i get no menu screen. tv says no signal and have a blank screen. as soon as i put a game in i get the picture on the tv


It sounds like your PS3 is putting out a resolution that your tv can't display when it is on the menu screen. The fix for this would be to press and hold the PS3 power button until you hear two beeps. This will default it to factory display settings and should set it to a resolution your TV can handle.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Ps turns on but no picture or sound on tv i've tried a different cable and its just the same. the tv appears to pick up some sort of connection but not what it should. The ps turns on and all the lights...


I will take a shot at your problem and assume you are using a HDMI cable. First you need to turn the PS3 on by the switch on the PS3. Then press and hold the On/Off button on the PS3, keeping it pressed until you here a clear beep and then a couple of seconds after you should hear a second beep. Once you hear the second beep take your finger off the button. Now as long as you are on the correct HDMI channel the rest should be on the screen for you to complete.

Please Note - If you have it working on a particular TV, then decide to unplug the PS3 and put it on another TV, there is a very good chance it will be blank again. This is normal because each TV has different setting, pixels, size, etc, and the HDMI has to be set to each individual TV. Once you get use to the settings. It takes no more than 1 minute to do.

Cheers, and hopefully this will solve your problem.

My xbox 360 wont show a picture but it has sound


Since your sound works, you know the xbox is booting properly.  Check two things: 1) try another television to make sure it's not the tv.  2) try another cable(from a friend?) to see if the cable is bad.
**Also, if the video settings were saved on an unsupported setting, it could cause the screen to not show video.  If you try these 2 things and you think someone might have saved bad settings, I recall a button combination you can use to reset certain things, and I try to help if it comes to that.

Blank screen when ps3 is turned on.


If you can still hear sound make sure your video output is compatiable with the setting on your tv example dont try to put 1080i if your tv can only run 720i

Playstation 2: Blank screen


Try another AV cable, recheck your connections and just try it straight to the TV first without using the sound system and see what happens.
