Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 will no longer work

I can hear it but no picture on t.v. only a blue screen. I recently had Dish Satellite installed in my room and since then I have been unable to play my ps3. I tried hooking it up to other t.vs throughout the house but still has the same problem. What do you think the problem is? I don't think it's the hard drive, could it have possibly been shorted out? Also, I purchased ps3 a lil over a year ago so it is no longer under warranty it ended about 2 weeks ago!!

How do i get my hdmi to work for my ps3 system


Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.

To reset video output settings:

  1. Turn the PS3 system off by holding the Power button on the front of the console till you see the power light turn red.
  2. Then hold the power button on the front of the console for at least five seconds until you hear a second beep to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

Minimum Requirements

  • PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system
  • SIXAXISTM wireless controller (and USB cable)
  • AC power cord
  • HDMI cable1 (sold separately)
  • TV or display monitor with HDMI port and capable of displaying picture in HD resolution
  • Updated system software installed on your PS3
    Visit PS3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.
  • TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port
    You need to know the TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port on your TV. For instance, if your TV has multiple "Input" or "Video" channels, (i.e., "Input 1", "Input 2", "Input 3", etc.), you will need to toggle through each "Input" channel on your TV until you find the correct channel that displays the HDMI picture. This is important to remember, especially if you do not see the HDMI picture after you connect the cable and configure the PS3 settings. Please refer to the TV instruction manual for more information.

Just did the most recent update on my ps3 and now all I have is a black screen. I have restarted several times and the main screen will momentarily flash but then goes to black.


This may work. When the system is off press and hold the power button you will hear a beep keep holding you hear another beep then release the power button. That will reset the video settings which should return your picture ..

If not call 800-345-SONY

They may have other steps to correct the problem

Dear Experts I recently played my ps3 online at a friends house, but when i returned home and turned the console on, my ps3 no longer had audio or visual support. The power supply is still working fine...


While the PS3 is OFF (solid red led), Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.

This is how to issue a soft video reset. Should work after that :)

I unplugged my ps3 to put it into a different room and it worked fine, then i put it back in my room and now it comes up with a blank screen?


Hi,
Connect your controller into the USB port and press the `P` button.
If still no joy, then hold the power button down at the front of the console until your hear one beep then eventually another. When the PS3 shuts down, let go of the button.
Then press and hold it again until you hear the first beep, 2nd beep then a double-beep.
This will bring up a 6 option menu, select `Restart System`.
This should sort the problem!

Good Luck!

Ps3 screen margins too wide for tv display


Try holding your power button on your ps3 down till it blinks.(not your main power switch on back of console) I do believe if correct, this should reset your ps3 resolution to an auto set for best display on your tv. It may pop up with a message on resolution, but that should work. I had similar problems and that worked for me.
