How do i fix my PS3 when I cant see anything, but the system itself looks to be functioning?


You are going to have to do a video reset. Witch takes the video settings of the system back to default. To do this, make sure you have everything hooked up. Power, HDMI. Then, turn the system on, push and hold the power button until the system turns off, then push and hold power button until you hear 2 "beeps" then the video settings will be refreshed. ^^

I just get a blank screen with no sound or anything when i turn it on


I once had this issue, the solution was hard to find(five hours), but fairly simple. (This works for HDMI cable set up, but I'm not sure concerning AV)
Note: Yes, the solution sounds ridiculous, but for this issue, it works.

1. Unhook your PS3 from the current TV/Computer screen you have it hooked up to.

2. Hook it up to a different TV/Computer screen that you have or a friend may have.

3. Power on the PS3 and it should have a screen and everything and work just fine.

4. Hook it back to your original TV/Computer screen and power on the PS3 and it should work fine there again aswell.

My ps3 is hooked up and everything it comes on but it won't come up on my tv screen, BUT EVERYTHING IS HOOKED UP, The hdmi cable is plugged in to


Please do the following steps to reset your PS3 display :-

Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Wait for the PS3 to detect your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Sound but no picture


Hook up the composite cables that come with the unit. Turn the TV on to the correct input. Turn the PS3 on using the power button on the unit. When you press the button continue holding the button until you hear a second beep....about five seconds. That should set the PS3 back to the factory output. If that corrects the problem you can set the PS3 to use whichever cable you want via the XMB.

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.

Cant acess ps3 Xbar menu,still plays games


it sounds like you haven't set the display settings correctly. turn off your ps3 and try using the red,white,yellow cables (make sure everything is plugged in correctly). if you get a signal, then change the display settings to whatever connection you will use.

hope that helps
