Hold your finger on the power button as you turn on the ps3, it will beep once when you turn it on and again about 5 seconds later. It basically resets the display settings to default which fixes the no display issue.

Unplug the playstation power cable to reset.

Check PS display definition.

    Try first unplugging the PS from power for five minutes or so. This is called hard reset , and reset the PS to factory by draining power.

    When connect PS back, ensure that there is no disk inside PS.

    If you still get the problem, try connecting the PS to a different HDMI input (always plug/unplug HDMI cable with PS and TV off, or you can damage TV).

    Try going to TV HDMI configuration menu , and re-configure HDMI devices.

    Try also setting both TV and PS display settings to 720 dpi, if that work, eventually set back to 1080 afterward.

Will not play games or dvds- menu screen will not come up the screen just shows the red wavy lines not the blue like it is suppose to


1- Disconnect the PS3 from the internet.
2- Turn the standby switch off so the red light turns off too, then you turn the system back on
3- Then place your finger on the power button for a total of 4 beeps to access the recovery menu. It might not work on the first attempt but it will on the second.
4- The display will instruct you to connect your controller to the PS3 and press the enter button. A list of menus will appear on your display. The choices are as follows: Restart System, Restore Default Settings, Restore File System, Rebuild data base, Restore PS3
5- Select Restore Default Settings.

When powering up the ps3 i can only see a wavy thick stripe across the screen?? what can i do?


Hi, this sounds like a problem with the TV cable (from the ps3 to the TV), this is a common problem that causes bad picture on the TV, try to replace it.

Hope This Helps

Ps3 will not start up. no display


sounds like the resolution is not set correctly on your tv or your ps3 settings. make sure they both are set to 720i to start, if you have a HDMI cable, that should be the min resolution your tv will do.

Find out the max resolution your tv can do, and set the ps3 to output that.

720i is a good place to start.

Ps3 from wavy screen to blank screen at start up.


Quick call and its fixed.... Whilst the PS3 is in stand by (red light on) press and hold the on button. Wait until it peeps slowly three times then take the finger off the button. This opens up a factory reset. Work from the top down and see which one fixes your PS3. For me it was a full reset, but at least it keeps your updgrades. :o(
