Our Ps3 has stopped communicating to our Sony T.V. The ps3 still works but it won't talk to the t.v. They are both Sony products and the HDMI seems to have stopped working. All other gaming console's


Hi.

You will probably have to make sure the video output settings are set up.

Make sure the PS3 is turned off and make sure that the HDMI lead is properly connected, also make sure you have selected the correct source on the TV.

Press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps. That will allow you to set up the desired video output.

If you still have a blank screen then I would change the HDMI cable as that could be faulty.

Good luck!!


Regards.

Try this: Power off the ps3 (red light) then hold down the power button until you hear 2 beeps and let go. that should work, you just needed to reset the ps3 to work on your tv.

Hi I have a brand new 320 GB PS3, barely a month old. Worked up until today when all I'm getting is "no signal". I've tried using other HDMI leads (component also) and TV's (mine is a Samsung...


Try these steps first -

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep

Wait for the PS3 to reset its display.

This will now choose the best setting for your TV and everything should be ok.

If you still get problems, go back to where you purchased it from or contact Sony, as it is under a year old it is still within warranty laws etc

Hope this helps

I want to just make it clear to you, that you can repair the following problems at home with a good repair guide. There is no technical knowledge needed you simply do what you see on the step by step vids or the paper guide.

The best thing is you get to keep your PS3 guide for life so if something goes wrong in the future you can just review your guide and fix it.

Ps3 freezes after start up


Hey guys, same thing happened to me. In case you're looking at this site like I recently had been, I just wanted to post a little update. I bought my PS3 on the Christmas of 2007, and it stopped working after I played an online round of Tekken: Dark Resurrection on July 5. It froze on the wavy part of the introduction of the PS3 system. So what you do is:

1. Press the PS3 "touch" power button and hold it until you hear two buttons "beep"
2. Connect your USB cord to your ps3 controller and press the center button when instructed on the screen.
3. Choose the third choice on the screen which says something about restoring the data (sorry i cant remember i know its the third choice though)
4. When it asks you its question say "Yes." and it will begin the restoring process with the download bar.
5. When its complete it may make you do step 4 once more, so just do it again, or any more times it asks, until it finally restarts properly. ( I had to do it two times)

I hope this helps you guys, it helped me the first day it stopped working!

It POWERS ON BUT HAS NO PICTURE,


Okay, I am now going through all the unsolved problems for which previously I had the same problems and now posting our solution. First, if you have no pic due to swiching of the cables (ie, cable av, hdmi) WHENEVER you switch your cable output, the ps3 also switches it's output. Make sure when there is no picture due to this problem to turn off the game console, then turn on, hold down the power button for approx. 5 SECs, there will be a BEEP. Let go of power button, the ps3 has then switched back to the output it is currently plugged in and will work. (ALSO sometimes you have to have ONLY the ps3 and tv hooked up) Hope this helped. I know how stressful this can be!
