I have a ps3 and cant get a picture on my 42" LG


Ok, you need to do the following :

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

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

The PS3 will start up and reset the display

Make sure you do this with the HDMI cable connected.

Hope this helps

Hi,\r\nPlaytstation 3 will start up (logo and sound will come on) but no menu appears ? please help Thanks John.


Ok, this unfortunately means that your PS3 software has become corrupt. The only way to fix this is to completely restore it. The only problem with this is you will lose all of your saved games.
Follow these simple steps :-

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

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then beep once more and turn back off into standby. Release the power button

Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, then 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via the USB and press the PS button. Do this and then move onto the next step.

Step 5. A menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 5 "Restore PS3 System". Go through all the prompts and accept everything. This will format your hard drive and replace the PS3 operating system. When the PS3 next restarts it should all be back to normal.

Corrupt hardhrive msg comes up and can not do anything


Follow these steps to try and bring your hard drive back to life :-

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

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off. When the console turns off please let go of the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, then beep 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps let go of the power button.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a PS3 connector via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then go onto the next step.

Step 5. A menu will then load. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". The PS3 will restart and may report that your hard drive is corrupt, ignore this and click on "OK" to continue. Let the PS3 do its thing and hopefully when it restarts all will be well again.

If this procedure does not work, follow steps 1-4 again but on step 5 choose option 4. If this does not work try again but with option 5.

If none of these procedures work then I am afraid it looks like your hard drive may have become faulty. This will mean you will have to purchase a new one.

I turn my ps3 on, and the main menu never shows up. all i see is that wavy thing (that the menu usually shows up over) and nothing happens. then the only way i can turn the system off is by flipping the...


Ok, what you need to do is re-install the system software, I will talk you through it. WARNING! This will erase your save games and other data you have on the PS3!!

Step 1. Turn the PS3 on at the back but leave it in standby mode (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep 5 seconds later and then once more 5 seconds after that. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep once when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then about another 5 seconds later it will beep twice quickly. When you hear these 2 quick beeps, let go of the power button.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up and ask you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then move onto the next step.
Step 5. The recovery menu will load. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". The console will go through an automated restore sequence and re-write its software. It will then restart and hopefully after you have entered the time, date and username information start normally.

If you need any more help, please reply here.

Ok, follow these simple steps and your PS3 should display properly on the TV.

Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button

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.

PS3 will not display on TV


WHEN YOU START YOUR PS 3, KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE START BUTTON UNTIL YOU EAR A SECOND BEEP ( BETWEEN 5 & 10 SECONDS); THIS WILL RESET AND SELECT THE RIGHT CONNECTION . I HAD TO FIND THIS PROBLEM WHEN WE WERE SWITCHING FROM THE LIVING ROOM TO MY KID'S ROOM.

LET ME KNOW, HAPPY NEW YEAR.
