Ps3 turns on but no signal on tv


Hi There,
Is the TV set for the correct input?
I assume you are using HDMI?
If all settings and input selections are correct then I will have to say that either the HDMI cable is faulty, or the HDMI port on either the TV or PS3 could be faulty.
Check if PS3 can work on another TV with the HDMI cable.
Check if another Device can work on that TV with the HDMI cable.
Try another HDMI cable.
From this, you should be able to determine where the issue is sitting.
Hope this helps!

My ps3 console signal isn't working but the sound works but there is no signal! not even a hdmi cable works help!


Try these tips to fix the so-called "black screen of death".

Tip 1: The main reason of HDMI black screen problem due to HDMI cable may be damaged and not properly connected to the PS3 console. Please follow below step to troubleshoot PS3 HDMI cables problem:

1) Restart your PlayStation 3.
2) Look for loose cables.
3) Try to unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them back in. If you found out that your HDMI cable is damaged, borrow a friends cable and try it. If your friends cable works fine, and the black screen error disappears. Then you can buy a brand new HDMI cable for a replacement.

Tip 2: Only try as last resort. There is a possibility you'll lose all data on your PS3's hard drive. If tip 1 didn't work, you will need to go a step deeper and reset your console. Most PS3 gamers are not aware that Sony actually included a black screen of death troubleshooting method and other HDMI problems in the PS3 manual, you can find it under the troubleshooting section - topic "console reset".

If you do it correctly, the console reset fix will allow you to reset back your PS3 to its default HDMI settings without impacting your gamer profile, and other storage data on the hard drive.

You will need to perform the following steps:

1. Place your PS3 in stand-by mode.
2. Hold down the touch power button until a series of beeps are heard.
3. Listen for one long beep, followed by two shorter beeps.
4. Release the power button.
5. Follow the instructions on screen.

If it works you should be good to go.

I recently went online to play and now i get 'no signal' on my tv from the ps3.


ok have you set up the ps3 on the same as the tv wants to go to

ex. hdmi tv + hdmi ps3 = hdmi cable
or if you have it through scart check it on there

and if that doesnt work then press and hold the on/off button for 5 seconds or untill it beeps when turning on your ps3 and it should work with the cable you have connected to the tv enjoy

I was doing something on my PS3 and it asked me if I wnted to perform some sort of function and I said yes with out thinking. Now my TV and another TV I tried search for the HDMI signal and can't find...


ok, try this, disconnect your ps3 entirely, including power, then plug in the HDMI FIRST, then the power cable, the device will enter standby mode, turn the device on and see if that works. if it doesnt repeat what i just said but instead of turning it on hold the power button for 8-10 seconds. this resets the device to origional setting and when it turns on it should detect that the HDMI is the only connected media, thus selecting it as the primary output. Hope This Helps!

Hdmi doesnt show picture


a few things to check. 1) does the TV tune to the appropriate HDMI port? If not then it isn't detecting a signal from the PS3. In that case you may not have HDMI output turned on. If you can reconnect the A/V cables then go to the system menu to display and set the output correctly. Start with 720p and work your way up to make sure you don't set it to a resolution that your TV can't handle. If you don' have the A/V cables then boot into safe mode and reset to default. This will reset the PS3 to out of the box settings (no data lost).

No signal on my TV


try connecting the ps3 to the HDMI only, now when the ps3 is off and all but the single red light is on rest your finger on the on button for about 8 seconds, as soon as you touch it it will turn on but just wait a bit and you'll here the a second beep- this should reset your ps3's video output settings. Try it out, it works for me when i go back and forth from av to HDMI.

It wont run through HDMI


Follow the guy aboves solution to reset your Ps3 to 480i. Turn the power to the system off from the switch on the back and then when you flip it back have the power button held down on the front of the system. This only resets the picture doesn't change anything else or erase any games, I had to do it and it works!!
