Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

There is a slight buzzing sound on my TV

With the PS3 connected via hdmi to my 58"lcd, there is a buzzing sound and a slow rolling shadow going up the screen. The shadow takes about 5 seconds to go up the screen and is only a little darker, but noticable. It happens whenever the ps3 is connected, even if it is turned off with the back power button. Is it the tv, console, or hdmi cable?

    same basic problem. i did read that if you get a two prong adapter and put that on the ps3 cord and then plug that into the outlet it should solve the lines in the screen haven't tried to see if it will work on the buzzing noise.

Sounds like your HDMI cable is crappy.......if its aftermarket, make sure its a good quality......you can check the resistance of the cable with a multi-meter in the "ohms" mode.  The cable package should have the ohms value on it, if the cable is out or range, thats your problem.......

I have sound on my TV from the PS3 connection via HDMI, but no display...


From stand by (red LED) press and hold the power button, after about 5 seconds the PS3 will make a second beep. let go of the power button. This will reset your display settings.
if it asks you to display in HDMi and the screen remains black there after, just wait 30 seconds and it will default back to a lower resolution. This usually means that you have an HD READY TV which only supports 720. You can then cjange the display settings to what ever you like in the display settings menu.

My ps3 has these lines coming up from below my tv screen and makes a buzzing sound


Are you using HDMI or AV.

Either way, you will need to reset the settings and try one or the other.

If you have AV, you will need to try HDMI.(we need to eliminate a few possibilities).
If you have HDMI, you will need to plug in your AV cables.

Do the following:

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



If you have a HDMI cable, plug it up, if you have AV plug it in as well. If you have both settings on your TV, be sure to have them both inserted into the system. Also, make sure that you are switching your TV from HDMI to AV and vice versa.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.


At times, it's the cables, at times it's the actual motherboard.. At times, it is the TV.


You have your work cut out for tonight.


Good luck and feel free to post with new questions.

No display


Hi,The settings on the PS3 are sending the video signal throught the HDMI port. Either go through the XMB via system settings, display settings,or if you only have a low def tv then hold the power for 5 seconds (when you turn it on i belive) and it resets it. You may have to adjust the audio settings at the same time, because if you pressed yes when the HDMI was first connected, you agreed to send the audio signal via HDMI as well.

No picture connected via HDMI


Your PS3's HDMI settings may be the issue. When you go to turn on your PS3 next time, instead of just pressing the poser button and letting go, hold it for 5-6 seconds until it beeps again and then let go. This will force the PS3 to autodetect your TV again and should bring up the video. good luck!

Shadowing on screen


You should get a good surge protector. Sometimes some areas have a spike in the power. That will cause interference in the TV signal coming from your PS 3. Try out different surge protectors that should solve your problem.
