60gb console working fine, it turns on, but no audio or viseo

My 60gb PS3 was working fine yesteday, turned it on today and it says there is connection problem and there is no display, although you can tell that PS3 is effecting the TV in some way as the screen flickers form a black screen to saying "connection problem" I have turned it off for a few secs, turn it back on whilst holding the power button till it resets, turned it off again for a few secs and then turn it on whilst holding the power button for 3 bleeps again, like advised on this site. However this still isn't working. I don't know what else to do? Is it broken? Please help

    Sorry I meant to say I was using a HDMI connection. I've figured it out now. I just had to turn the HDMI cable around for some wierd reason, and use the opposite to normal sides.then reset it, Cheers anyway.

I turn on my ps3 and get no video or audio output anly a green light on the front. also the remote will not turn it on it just blinks all four lights. this is a 60gb system

Try to turn your PS3 with the power button pressed for 08 seconds and you will hear a beep it will restart with full video and audio functions....check the hdmi or video component cable or even try a simple Ps2 A/V have many options....Good Luck!!!

When I turn on my PS3 it turns yellow then immediately shuts down

Its the yellow light of death, its an over heated ps3. Theres not much you can do about it, take it to sony or a computer fixing shop and get the console fixed. These can be fixed at a price of around £35. If you cant get that, get a new ps3, its what i had to do.

Hdmi on my sony PS3 not working

Have you changed your HDMI settings recently? Make sure you are using the correct resolution supported by your HDTV. The audio settings can be changed independently to the display.

You can reset the display settings by turning off the PS3 and holding down the power button down for 10 seconds.
