You should start with a manual video reset.

While th PS3 is off, hold down the front power button until you hear two beeps, then quickly release. This will reset your video back to default.

Ps3 turns on but no signal on tv


Hi There,
Is the TV set for the correct input?
I assume you are using HDMI?
If all settings and input selections are correct then I will have to say that either the HDMI cable is faulty, or the HDMI port on either the TV or PS3 could be faulty.
Check if PS3 can work on another TV with the HDMI cable.
Check if another Device can work on that TV with the HDMI cable.
Try another HDMI cable.
From this, you should be able to determine where the issue is sitting.
Hope this helps!

My PS3 worked fine for 2 months, then just like that I get "no signal" on the tv screen. Nothing has been changed (cable or tv). I've tried holding the on/off button down till the unit turns back off, but...


Your A/V cables might not work anymore. Do you have any spare A/V cables....like from a ps2? Try the cable on your ps3 to see if you can get a signal then. If you don't get a signal it is a problem either with your ps3 or the TV. Try using a different TV, if it continues to happen than it's your ps3. I highly doubt it's your ps3 and doubt you will get to this step, but if you do what you need to do next is buy an HDMI cable and hook it to your ps3 and tv. If your tv doesnt accept HDMI than i dont know what to tell you. If you do this step and it still doesnt work than sorry it didnt work. Hope this helps, good luck.

My ps3 is hooked up to my tv via HDMI cord. The


1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
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.

Then after that change the output setting to HDMI on your PS3 and see if it works after that, if not, try the system on another TV to make sure its not a problem with your tv.

If it still doesn't work try another cable and then after that it could be a problem with the main board inside of the ps3.

Cascading white craziness


First thing you should try is using the regular old AV cables. That way we know if it's an hdmi problem or a video problem with the PS3. Hook them up, do the manual video reset ( hold down the power button until you hear a second beep, quickly release) and then post back here with the results.

PS3 not working on 42'' JVC via HDMI cable port


I have the PS3 and this TV and it works....Try this.

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect HDMI from TV to PS3
3. Select the correct HDMI input on the TV for the PS3(important)
4.Turn OFF PS3 if it is ON.
5. hold [I/O] Power button on PS3
6. Wait about 5 second and you should get the "HDMI Detected" or some similar message.
7. Configure the HDMI output for the PS3

Also, If you set the PS3 to "auto" for hdmi, it may set the resolution to 1080i. You may want to deselect everthing but the 1080P.

Ps3?


Check the couplings at either end of the cable. Sometimes these will loosen and can cause a lack of signal strength.

but its probably not the cable, its probably the ps3. HDMI cables don't really break because they are just wires, they don't have moving parts. Try connecting your PS3 to your TV with the regular cable red, white, and yellow connectors that you got when you bough the PS3. If the PS3 doesn't work with the original red, white, and yellow connectors then you know its the PS3. If the PS3 does work fine, you know its either the HDMI cable (still unlikely) or the HDMI connection on your TV or PS3 (more likely
