Try reseting the video following these steps:

Power off your PS3.

Turn on your PS3 by holding down the power button until you hear TWO beeps, then let go immediately.

This will reset it back to the default video settings.

If that doesn't work then you probably have a problem with the RSX (Video Chip) on the motherboard. You'll have to call Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY for service.

My ps3 didnt want to show any video/audio. i did the whole 3 beep thing and it brought me to a menu, then i chose to reset the whole console, then i turned it off and on all of a sudden the screen wen

I think that your whole HDD is corrupt, but that doesn't explain why it wouldn't turn on. I don't know if it might have some adverse effects to do safe mode twice in a row. I wouldn't think it would be an issue. Have you tried other A/V connections? Like another cord, or HDMI? Give it a shot, it might be a simple cord issue. Well worth a look into. Good luck.

I think i blew my left audio on my ps3. I tried using other AV cords but its the same result. Its my system not the cords. My right speaker works fine but now my left is very low on sound. Can i fix...

Is it the PS3 audio or the speaker itself? swap the speakers over before you worry, or just swap the white and red connectors over, It could also be the speaker amplifier.

It wont turn on the power works but i think the audio cord is broke idk i cant c a thing visually but the ps3 turns on fine

If you recently moved the PS3 to a different location or switched TV's you may need to hard reset the system due to the default settings not being in place.

otherwise its your HDMI cable. they tend to go bad rather frequently

PS3 turns on but nothing comes up on the screen/no sound.

First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 is off (red solid light) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release the power button.

Let me know what happens.

PS3 Power Surge Help!

hi there try using the ps3 as audio-cd play(blind, without screen)
with any other tv to make sure soun still is coming...
if there was a flash or circuit destroyíng the yellow(video)plug,
either the cable has been destroyed or the short backfired even into the video module of the psx3.
try exchanging the cable, if that doesn't do any good, the video module got smoked...

let a technician repair/replace it or you think about becoming the happy owner of another brand new psx3

good luck!

My playstation 3 wont work on my tv

use your own cords but it is broken inside your tv. the ps3 is not the problem its not the cords it is simply the tv were u insert the cord. something may have yanked it out fast and disconnected it. my solution would be to connect it to the back of a dvd player and then put the tv on video mode that is how i play at my dads but at my moms it works fine on some tvs but not on one because my puppy pulled out the cord to hard.

Video/audio trouble

I dont know exactly how to fix it, but if you take it to a games place and ask them, they should tell you. They wont have to do it for you. Just try and you may end up getting a new one! Good luck.
