Make sure the cables are properly connected and nothing is loose. Try turning off your TV and PS3 and disconnect and then connect all the cables back. Try using another cable, if you have HDMI try another cable.
It is a known problem with some high def connectors not working properly. The following should be checked before concluding there is a problem 1. Ensure you have your TV tuned to the right output station for as your ps3 is connected.(for example you cannot have your ps3 connected to the second set of av ports on your tv and your tv is on av1, it has to be on av2) 2. Cross-check the functionality of your ps3 using the default av cables that come with it so as to know if your cable or console is faulty. 3. Ensure that you high-def cables are properly connected. If all the above prove abortive, you have to see a repairer to check-up your ps3 or tv
If ur ps3 console wont start up....then the
things to check are>>> 1.check ur power cable 2.check whether u have
inserted the disc properly and precisely. 3.check the insertion of memory
card... 4.check the video port.......
Make sure you have the cables hooked up properly, regardless of whether your using an HDMI cable or regular A/V cables.
Best thing to do in a case like this is to do a factory reset on your PS3. Be sure that the A/V cables are being used originally and are hooked up properly.
Here is how to do the factory reset on a PS3:
1 - Turn on TV and set input to port
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release
after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to
the TV's native resolution for all settings.
Try that, if you still don't get video and you know the cables and the TV are set to the right output then its an issue with the main board not having any output.
for the ps3 i know why u are not gettin any video. make sure the ps3 is off with the red light showeing in the front then hold down the power button for (i think) 30 sec. u will see the light blink a bunch of times them you might have to re start it but it should show the vedeo againg
Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.
since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.
