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.

Dear sir/Madame, I?m having a problems with installing my PS3 on mine TV. TV that I?m using is a Tatung V32MCGI 32inch LCD. Problem I?m having is following. When I try to connect my PS3 on to my TV...


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.

It's hooked up with HDMI,but all of a sudden can't get any picture. i can hear the sound. No luck when i hooked it up with rca wires either.


Check your connections to the TV itself to make sure they are properly hooked up. Once this is done, turn off your PS3 completely. Turn the PS3 back on using the touch button on the front, BUT keep your finger on the button until you see something on your screen. This will reset your video settings back to 480i which will work on any tv/monitor and should allow it to auto detect the HDMI option again.

If this doesn't work, you may want to make sure that your HDMI/AV/COMPOSITE settings and inputs are working correctly on your tv. You might want to try and plug something else in for full testing purposes if the above does not fix your issue.

My ps3 doesnt play after bringing from another house to my house?


The video output selection may have re-set. Try hooking it up with component cables and the HDMI cable both, then change to each type of input on your TV and see if either give you a picture.

PS3 no picture problem..


Try using RGB cables and unplug the HDMI cable from the PS3, then while the PS3 is off, hold down the power button/sensor on the PS3 untill you hear a beep or a few beeps. This will force the PS3 to automatically detect the TV/cable resolution settings. Hope this works.

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,

Sound but no picture


Hook up the composite cables that come with the unit. Turn the TV on to the correct input. Turn the PS3 on using the power button on the unit. When you press the button continue holding the button until you hear a second beep....about five seconds. That should set the PS3 back to the factory output. If that corrects the problem you can set the PS3 to use whichever cable you want via the XMB.

Invalid format??


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

Ps3 reset


turn the PS3 off. hold the power button for at least 5 seconds or until you hear another beep.
This should reset all your ps3's settings.  If you have an HDMI connection, wait for a couple of seconds so that the PS3 recognizes and negotiates the right video output for your TV.

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.
