Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

No picture, no sound, standby button doesn't work normally

All of the sudden, when i turned my PS3 on last night, there was no picture or sound, the machine sounds normal. I got the normal blue and green lights, the eject button works normally, but you can't just hold the standby button for a few seconds because it wont turn off, the only way it works is if you are pressing it for ten seconds. I can't afford to get it repaired, is there anyone who can help me out because I would really appreciate it.

Make sure all your connections are tight and if you're using hdmi try using component cables.

My problem is earlier today i was playing my ps3, the picture was showing on the t.v. ( a HDMI Cable conected it to the tv), but 30 minutes later, i tried to play my ps3, the picture was not showing up...


Sounds like your video settings are wrong. Since you were on the HDMI connection the video was outputting in HD. When you switched over to normal AV (composite) cables the video was still outputting in HD.

Simple fix: power off your PS3 (so it's in standby; red light is showing). Then turn it back on, using the power button on the console (not the PS3 controller) and hold down the power button until it beeps a second time (about 5 seconds). The video settings will reset to composite. If needed, change your video settings.

Normally I'd put down like 3 other things it could be (each worse than the last), but I'm fairly certain that this will fix it. If it doesn't, just say so and I have many a more potential fix available.

Hope it works!

No picture, no sound, but ps3 turns on. how to fix this


if your ps3 turns on like normal but there is no picture (video) and or there is no sound follow the tips bellow to fix this
  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

most of the time this problem occurs when you change the cable to HDMI or scart

Hi- we are having a problem with our ps3....it just started overheating....we forgot to open the door...I heard the fan kick in...so we turned off the ps3 to let it cool down....now the ps3 is running...we...


try video reset

when ps3 is in standby mode(red light)
press and hold the power button till you hear a second beep.

standby mode press hold power........"beep"......"beep"..release power button

then try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

Help no picture or output


Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

PS3 no picture and no sound


Try turning the system off completely with the main power switch on the back of the console. If that doesnt work call Sony technical support for further help.
