My ps3 is not working because when i plug in all the leads the picture or sound does not work so i bought a new cable but it still does not work I think it may be because i plugged it in to a hd tv then...


Ok, please follow these steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later, let go of the power button when you hear this second beep

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to restart

This basically resets the video output back to standard definition where you should now be able to set it up properly.

Hope this helps

My ps3 will turn on but wont show a picture on the tv or give sound


Reset the video settings by turning on the ps with only the power cable plugged in, when turning on continue to hold the power button until you hear a second set of beeps then turn off the console.
Boot up the ps and plug in your av/hdmi cable and you should have picture and sound.

My ps3 powers up, but I get no picture or sound.


Put your PS3 in standby mode (hold the power button until the light turns red) then release, and hold the power button again for about 10 seconds, or until the light beeps a second time. When the PS3 restarts, it should display on whatever it finds plugged in first.

My playstation turns on and everything, but once i plug it in to any kind of television there is no picture or sound


Heres one solution that I found. If your ps3 turns on but does not boot up just stays a black screen most likely the hard drive got corrupted. So unfortunately you will lose all your saves. But to save the system when you power on the ps3 hold the button down its should beep once keep holding it and it should turn red in standby mode. Keep holding the power button down though. It should turn green again keep holding it should beep then double beep this time instead of going into standby. Let go now and some options will come onto the screen. You will need to plug in your ps3 controller and 6 options should come up. Reformat PS3 worked for me but I lost all my saves. Good luck!

Got picture no sound on games only


Check the audio settings on PS3 and make sure they are set to what audio source you are using. If not that make sure those inputs work with other devices. If not that then the sound card has gone out and the soon the video car will go out.... :(
