You can try to reset the system. The way that you go about that is to push and hold the power button for, I think 15 secs. you will hear it beep and then reset. Give it a try.

Ressetig the ps3 on a new tv


Sounds like the Tv your using is faulty. Its could have hardware failure. You did say it PS3 was working on hdmi on a plasma. If your using the default hdmi cable that came with ps3 that also can be faulty. I have always had problems with the default hdmi so i bought a new one that was not SONY and it works beautifully. Another thing the black screen with green is a video cable or graphics issue.

Does this tv work if there is no ps3 connected? if so i recommend using the standard PS3 Component AV Cable. see if that will let you reset your ps3.

Ps3 goes to black screen then to normal


It could be as simple as your video cable going bad. Check to make sure the wire is in good shape and that the contacts and connections are secure.

I would say try using it with an HDMI cable (if possible) and see if the problem persists. You can also try and hook up another device (DVD player, camera, PS2, etc) to the TV input you are using now and see if it is the TV that is giving you trouble.

Screen goes black


sounds like you're using an HDMI cable, and the cable is broken. That's exactly what happens when HDMI cables break, a few of those 0s and 1s don't make it to the TV every once and a while, and the TV goes black and the audio dies.

or

go to system update and choose online update. an optional ps3 firmware 3.01 fixes this issue

also, I had a similar situation a while back. Anytime I loaded any disk (game or movie) it would just go black and freeze. I had to do a system reset (where it reloads everything and you lose your data). You can back everything up before that and restore it once you are done. It has worked fine for nearly a year since then.

I can only use the hdmi cable. iv been trying the other one that came with it but its just a blck screen no sound or anything. i went out and got a new set of wires and it still dose the same thing. why?...


HDMI cable will give you perfect picture, what you need to do is get a fiber-optic cable to go from your PS3 to your receiver to get the best sound with it. The component cables that came with it don't need to be used if you have a HDMI

Black screen on ps3


try to unplug the system and turn it back on, some times you can get it to work that way, or it could be the audio video cable connected to your tv

Sreen is black


It's probably a problem with the connection of the PS to your tv. If the connection setup is right, and you still get no sound or colour, connect the PS3 to the TV using the standard-def A/V cable provided in the packaging and press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds when you start up the console. After that, you can change the display settings to an HD connection and connect the PS3 to the tv using an HD cable. (That is if you want it in HD)

Ps3 80 gig


Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.
