It wont turn on the power works but i think the audio cord is broke idk i cant c a thing visually but the ps3 turns on fine


If you recently moved the PS3 to a different location or switched TV's you may need to hard reset the system due to the default settings not being in place.

otherwise its your HDMI cable. they tend to go bad rather frequently

I recently moved house and have connected my ps3 80gb to a TV not previously used to connect the ps3 to. When I switch on the ps3 all I get apart from the Sony log on tune is multi coloured vertical wavy...


It sounds like the PS3 is sending a signal that the television isn't 100% compatible with. I'd start by plugging the PS3 in using standard RCA jacks, and making sure that the video and audio configuration settings are all set to automatic. Then, plug back in using the HD cords that you have, and the PS3 should reconfigure its signal output to match what the TV can handle.

Moved playstation to friends tv played fine. Connected back to my tv power lights come on but No sound or picture yet all cables are ok


You need to reset the display, follow these 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 then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to start up with normal display settings. If you are using HDMI make sure only the HDMI cable is connected when doing the above steps.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

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.

Earlier i configured my display settings to only HDMI. But now i do not have such television anymore and nothing is visible when i plug in then vga connection. Can i reset the display settings?


If you have a Sony PS3 that you move from place to place, you may run into the issue where you connect it to a new TV or monitor and you can't see anything because the video settings are different than what your PS3 is configured for. When this happens, you can't even get to the screen that allows you to set the video settings, so you are basically screwed. If this happens to you, there is a fix. Turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on any TV or monitor. Once you can then get something on the screen, you can configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to. You'll probably have to do the same thing when you take it back to your original location. But at least with this trick you can now move your PS3 around if you want.

PS3 Scart / HD


Turn it off with the "hard" switch in the back. Then turn it back on with the switch while pressing the power button on the front for 10 secs, this should reset your display settings.
