Playstation 3 no video & no sound BUT THE RESET WONT WORK

It powers up, disc drive works, Hd works, fan sounds stronger at first then kicks down could be normal due to not doing much of anything, When you try the reset it powers on beeps once then powers off, no blinking lights, also the usb ports dont seem to get power, could this just be a power supply issue or ???

Ok let me try to help you My name is Juanand this happen a lot on the 80Gb units if you try the reset remove your finger before it powers off lets begin ok with the switch off place your finger on the on switch turn the main power switch on and keep your finger ther until it beeps once and then remove your finger before it shuft off try this couple of times but it could be your graphics card so once you have it running again if it freezes or shows a blurry graphics on tv after few minutes then is your graphics card and sorry but they can't be replaced

power supply is very easy to replace. if you plan on working on unit you will void all warranty cuz you remove the sticker to get into it. 90 percent sure its the powersupply.

Okay, hold the ps3's power button until it shuts off. Then hold it again until it beeps twice. When prompted, plug your controller in. Press the PS button on your controller. Now, dpad

Hi my ps2 slim wont turn disc,laser work up and down,i replaced motor with new one but i still have same problem


Make sure there aren't any problems with any of the ribbon cables. Make sure they're clipped down properly. It sounds like your drive isn't getting any power.

Hi forever_drea

PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER IF YOU FIND IT HELPFUL !

1- Turn off the power of your PS3 and then turn it back on again.
2- During that, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen.
3- And that's about it. What it does is, completely resets the video settings to 480p I think, the basic configuration, which enables it to work on any TV or monitor.
4- Once you get something on your TV / monitor screen, you can configure your PS3?s video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to.

My ps3 wont come on the light comes on but the screen doesnt i just got it fixed yesterday from sony i paid 150 and now its working


It sounds like your PS3 may be in HD mode.
Try pressing and holding the power button until you hear 2 beeps. This will reset the video to standard output.

No video or sound


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.

Thanks,
Ced
