Turn power on with a steady green light but nothing appears

Nothing appears on the tv. No menu or anything. I tried switching channels from video 1 to video 2. A disc loads fine but nothing.

    System seems to power on. The lights come on, but there is no sound or menu or anything. The discs will load fine, but nothing at all happens.

    I have the same problem. The discs will load and eject, (with no video) then when I try to power it down because it is unresponsive the power button on the console will not respond.

    I turn my ps3 on, I can stick in a game, but nothing shows on my tv.
    When I listen to the ps3 as I turn it on, it gives a slight "whiiirrr" and then that's it.

Try it on another TV if nothing shows up then your PS3 or the video plug is broken.

When I try to hook my Sega Genesis up to my TV, why does nothing happen?


you should have a red light and if its on it should be working. I would just go on Amazon and buy a AV connector for the system, no need to use RF like its 1989 :)

My PS3 turns on to green light but nothing comes on screen


After the system boots up, hold your finger down on the metal spot where you normally turn it on. it'll completely reset all settings & hopefully set to the proper video output.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

PS3 doesn't appear on screen. Possible power issue.


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.
