Well its either both the chords you tried aren't working or perhaps a peice in the PS3 itself is fried.If you have a warranty you can send it in to Sony and get it repaired.I think it may be free,but I'm not totally sure.Also I think you can repair a Ps3 for 150$.It's alot,but cheaper than an entire ps3.

90% of the time you can fix this problem by simply swapping the power supply.

What model is your PS3?

When i turn on my ps3 the power goes on but no picture or sound...i tried a different audio/video cord but still dont get anything....


Please try the following solution :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My dad cant hook mine up for some reason


Ok

First, Turn your T.V. on and go to the input mode on the t.v.

Second, there should be two cords in the back of your playstation3.
The power cord and the input cord. These are the two basic cords to turn your playstation on.

Once you have them plugged in, on the back of your playstation 3 there should be a power switch right above the power cord. Click it on so that the I is down and the O is up. In the front of your Playstation, a red light will appear indicating that the Playstation is ready to be turned on. Tap the red light until it turns green ( this should only be tapped once) When it is green the system will go to the start-up menu and enjoy your Playstation 3

Playstation not receiving power


This could be a problem with your AC power cord, try these fixes. If they do not work you ca contact sony at:

or
www.uk.playstation.com/help-support/ps3


  • The console might not be turned on. Turn on the console using the main power switch on the back of the console.
  • Make sure the AC power cord is securely connected.
  • Visually inspect the AC power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.
  • Confirm the wall power outlet is active (receiving power). Try a different power outlet.
  • If possible, test the power cord by connecting it to a different PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If possible, try another AC power cord on your PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PLAYSTATION 3 power supply and the PLAYSTATION 3 may need service.
  • Make sure the vents are not obstructed in anyway.
  • Make sure there is adequate ventilation for the PLAYSTATION 3. There should be at least four (4) inches of clearance between the air vents on the system and any walls, televisions, entertainment centers, etc. Otherwise the unit may not function properly due to what are actually environmental issues.
