Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Heard a spark now ps3 doesn't work

I can hear it but no picture on t.v. I tried hooking it up to other tv's throughout the house but still has the same problem. What do you think the problem is? I heard a spark when I plugged it into my vcr, and everything else works fine (t.v, vcr..etc), could it have possibly been shorted out?I have tried new cables, turning off and on by holding down button till after 2 beeps, 3 beeps powering it back on fast/slow waiting for a few minutes. I've tried almost every suggestion except for sending it back to sony to avoid having to pay $160. I purchased my ps3 a lil over a year ago so it is no longer under warranty it ended about a month ago!!

    No the system hasn't been dropped or misused and like I said it is no longer under warranty.

I own a Sony kdf-55e2000 , when I try to hook up a ps3 through the hdmi imputs i get a message reading "unsupported signal please check device output" i can here the sound but no picture.Is there any


try only having the hdmi cable hooked up to ps3 and tv, turn off ps3 and hold power button for 5 or 10 seconds and you should hear 3 beeps, this should reset the ps3 and detect the settings, if this doesnt work you mmay have to manually change audio and video settings in the ps3 settings menu to hdmi output and auto detect which settings work.

How do you use PS3 and DVD player with the Toshiba 32Dtu2 LCD TV?


The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.

Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.

If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.

If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps!

I just hooked up my Curtis lcd2425a tv and get no picture or sound. Just a white screen.


It might be the cable not the tv... Try hooking up an xbox or ps3... If the picture comes up on that then have someone come over to your house to fix the cable... If it doesn't work then send in your tv for a new one... Best if luck

Hello,

Have you tried "resetting" the ps3 with it hooked up to your hdmi port? When the ps3 is in standby (red light), hold the power button to power it on, however, dont let go, keep hold the button down for 5 or so seconds until you hear a beep again, let up and wait about 15 seconds and it should detect the hdmi port.

No video or sound


Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.

Thanks,
Ced

Invalid format??


change the display settings to 1080i or 720p- his tv likely does not support 1080p.

Everything works but the picture; even on screen programming


try pluging cable wire directly to the tv to see if you get a picture you may have shorted out the rca connection may need to be repaired good luck.....

Unhooked ps3 from an hd tv and plugged it into an sd tv and it shows no picture.


when in standby mode(redlight) push and hold the power power button until you hear the second beep. This should reset your PS3 to it's standard 480i resolution.
