Re: Ps3 does not appear menu screen & AVI cable trouble
To fix the HDMI AV cable issue just do a manual video reset. When you power on the PS3 hold down the power button until you hear two beeps then quickly remove. If you have other problems I would suggest doing a System Restore under Settings.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Please try this procedure to connect the PS3 to TV..
The PS3 has a Blu-ray drive that can be
used not only for playing games but also for watching high-definition
movies. The best way to connect a PS3 to a high-definition viewing
device such as a video projector is through the PS3's high-definition
multimedia interface (HDMI) output. The HDMI connection can transmit up
to 1080p high-definition from the PS3 to the video projector using a
single cable. Attaching and setting up the HDMI cable will only take a
few minutes and will let you watch high-definition video from the PS3 on
the video projector.
Attach one end of the HDMI cable
to the HDMI output connector of the PS3. Turn the HDMI cable around if
it does not slip right into the HDMI output, because the HDMI cable can
only fit into an HDMI connector one way.
Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input connector
that is on the video projector. Make sure both sides of the HDMI cable
is securely pushed into the connectors of the PS3 and of the video
projector. Turn on the video projector. Press the "Menu" button on the
video projector's remote. Navigate to the "Sources" setting on the video
projector's Menu. Select "HDMI" from the "Sources" setting. Press the
"Menu" button on the remote control again to exit the Menu.
Adjusting the PS3
Turn on the PS3. Wait for the
"Home" menu to appear on the video projector, although the quality of
the video seen from the video projector will be muddied and dark.
Navigate from the "Home" menu to the "Systems" icon using the game
controller and select the "Display Settings" tab. Choose "Video Output
Settings" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the
right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the
Choose "HDMI" from the list presented in the screen that appears.
Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to
move to the next screen. Choose "Automatic" from the list presented in
the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on
the game controller to move to the "Confirmation" screen. Press the "X"
button on the game controller to make the settings active. Return to the
PS3's "Home" menu.
Watching the PS3
Insert a Blu-ray disc into the
slot at the front of the PS3. Wait as the Blu-ray disc begins to play
the video content on the video projector from the PS3 through the HDMI

1) Reset the settings on the PlayStation 3 by having the unit turned off, then pressing and holding the power button on the front of the unit until you hear it beep twice (shouldn't take more than 7-10 seconds), then release. All of your settings will be reset to the factory defaults, and you can make adjustments as needed. 2) if you are streaming the avi files from a media center via wifi it is more than likely a connection error try hooking up your ps3 directly with an ethernet cable to your router if possible this should fix the problem
If your Ps3 has trouble reading all discs, then the lens could hardly read them due to it being dirty. Try to use a disc cleaner and let it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not work, you need to manually clean the lens opening the casing and removing the screws covering the lens. Get a cotton swab and damp it to an alcohol. Gently wipe the lens' surface and let it dry. Then return everything back and try playing those dics again.
Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.
I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:
1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep
After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.
Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.
As always, I suggest you get some canned air and blast it out from the front and sides. Just use the air holes that are on the machine. That way all of the dust build up can exit in the back. Also, check all your cables and revert back to your manual. Something on your TV stand may be interfering. If all else fails, then call Sony and get a box sent to pick up your PS3. I'm seriously out of ideas on this one. I hope this helps!! Good luck.
