Start with a video reset first.

Hold down the power button until you hear two beeps then release immediately. That will change the video back to the default settings. Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

I have a goodmans TV is having issues, sky box works fine through the hdmi but, ps3 no display or sound through the same port, my ps4 gets pic but no sound, both consoles have been tested on other tvs


1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

Playstation 3 has sound but not showing picture


It sounds like you have changed your display settings either to HDMI but are not connected with HDMI or you have set the progressive scan to ON and it's not supported by your TV. Try turning off the Playstation 3 and then hold the power button for about 5 seconds, until you hear a second set of beeps. This procedure will reset your display settings, then auto detect your connection, provided you have kept up with the updates. If you have kept up with the updates or aren't sure, you can use the same steps, but you will need to be connected via Composite Cable and not HDMI. If this doesn't work, you may need to send it in for reparis.

I can hear my Ps3's Sound, when the HDMI cables are connected, and it's on the correct HDMI channel, though i can't see anything, the screen is just black. I have tried holding the power down, until i...


Ok, you are actually holding the power button down for too long. Please do the following to sort out the display on your PS3.

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then beep again about 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep. The display will now reset and it should detect your HDMI display with no problem.

Hope this helps

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.

When entering a game I hear sound but no picture. Plugged in correctly and TV set to HDM11.


If you are sure that you have your TV on the correct input, you can try resetting the PS3's video settings using the following procedure:

  1. Before changing cables, make sure the PlayStation 3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back of the PlayStation 3 (the 0 side is pressed down).

  2. Unplug the power cord of the PlayStation 3 and television (or display) from the wall socket.

  3. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PlayStation 3 system.

  4. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.

  5. Plug the PlayStation 3 and television (or display) back in to the wall socket.

  6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PlayStation 3 back on (the line on the power button is now pressed).

  7. 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.

  8. Turn ON the PlayStation 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).
If that does not resolve your issue, try the other steps here:

Tv says "no signal" when i turn on PS3


About holding the reset button, I assume you know how to use that trick, you might be missing something, though: Probably you have your TV set to the incorrect input, eg. Connect only the HDMI, set your TV to HDMI input and go with the power button trick (press (youll hear a beep), dont release until you hear a second beep) the system will autmatically display through HDMI, it can take up to 5 secons or so.

if you have a SD TV. ( standard display, not HD ) but chose the HD display option on system settings you wont see picture but hear sound. and same goes if you've chosen SD display but own a HD TV. so try to reset your system somehow or take it in for inspection.
