When i turn on my ps3, the green light stays on and the tv screen doesn't even change. i changed the cords to make sure the audio/video wasn't just out. i tried to enter 'recovery mode' but it won't even...


If you have a "slim" ps3, it does not beep 3 times. Try this.
First, with the system off,plug in your old red, white, yellow cables into the tv. (make sure your tv is on the correct setting). Now, just turn on the ps3 the regular way. Did you hear the sounds it normally makes when booting up (the ps3 boot music?). If so, thats good. If you did not, check again that the tv is on the right channel, and if possible, try another set of red, white, yellow cables.

If you heard sound, but do not get a picture, turn the ps3 back off. After the red light comes on, hold your finger down on the power button for about 5 seconds. If you have a fat ps3, it will beep 3 times after a few seconds to get back to regular tv mode. If you have a slim ps3, it will beep once, then 1 more time a few seconds later. It should reset and turn back on. If your tv is on the right channel and the cables work, then you should now see a picture and you know your audio/video is working. You can now try your HDMI cable and it should prompt you to use the HDMI at this point.

Hope that helps.
Mike!

My ps3 system will turn on, get the green light, but don't get any sound or picture. it's not my av cord, cuz i am using my ps2 on it now. my ps3 was working just fine and then my screen just scrambled and...


Interesting problem. I recommend trying a reset of the video card. It's pretty easy, Sony has the instructions here.

Except for the scrambling and freezing, it sounds like an issue I had recently with my own system. Give this a try and please leave a comment on weather it worked or not.

Have power, no picture or sound


Sounds like you blew the A/V and HDMI connector on the back of your ps3. If it still has it's warranty I would send it back because this problem sounds serious.

This could be caused by many problems. First try a differnet video cable the current one may be shot. Secondly your hard drive may be loose so try uninstalling the hard drive and reinstalling it. Instructions can be found here and the warranty is not voided by this action http://boardus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3media&thread.id=32840

Av cable displays no video but only sound


Use your ps3 warranty and get Sony to replace that one with a new one.

No sound on tv or from the actual ps3 unit, no picture.


be sure all cords are plugged in correctly and that the tv itself works if nothing helps and its not any of the cords you may need to get it looked at.

Green light but no picture or sound.


First thing you wanna try is a manual video reset.

It's probably a good idea to hook up the regular av cables as well.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Let me know what happens.
