I have my ps3 plugged in but powered off so just a red light is on.i push power button light turns green I hear fan come on and everything sounds normal but it has no picture at takes cd no pro

Rudy, are you connecting to the TV with HDMI, or RCA cords? HDMI carries both picture and sound thru 1 cord, whereas RCA splits it to YELLOW RED and WHITE. The HDMI connection is automatically detected when connected to your TV. It will say"HDMI is detected, do you want to use these settings?" RCA is not automatic, and is prone for the video(YELLOW) cord to develope a bad connection. I wouls duggest first replacing the cord. They are inexpencive, and the fastest way to check your issue. I am going to include a link to a youtube video that will guide you through the steps on how to reset your video settings on your system.

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.

What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.

I turn my xbox 360 on, the fans are working but the picture does not show or the green lights at the front , there are not red ones either? help me plz ?

how old is the xbox360/ the cord is the one you need to inspect first and then if that works properly, you may need a specialist to check the 360's cord input where the picture is sent to the screen of your t.v.

Playstation 3 is on however the tv screen is

Since I don't know if this has worked for you before I can only give you advice. I'll do my very best to help you in whatever way I can.

If it's a new system I need to know how you have it hooked up. I'll start by having you troubleshoot some things:

If you want it hooked up through HDMI connection you'll need to hook up both the composite (Red White & Yellow) cord that came with it; along with the HDMI cord.

Turn your console on and set your TV input to whichever input the composite cable is hooked into.

Assuming you have picture:

Go to your settings and select Display Options. At the next menu, you'll want to switch it from composite to HDMI. Your screen will go blank.

Set your TV to whichever HDMI input you have it hooked to and you should see a display. Confirm if necessary.

If you still have no picutre:

What I would initially do then is make sure the system is off, turn your TV input to the correct video settings for the composite, and when you turn it on, hold your finger on the power button for a few seconds after it's on to set the default picture display.

You should have a picture now. If not, it could be your TV. Try these same steps on another TV.

Please let us know if you're having further issues & Good Luck!

We get sound but not picture...not connected to internet...using HDMI cord and it works with other devices

1 Adjust the video input on the TV to match the input connector that is being used to connect to the PS3 system. 2 Check that the cable is securely inserted. Disconnect the cable from the PS3 system or TV and reconnect it. 3 No picture could be as a result of that the video output settings on the system do not match those of cable or TV. Turn off the system. Then with only the system and the TV connected touch the system's power button for more than 5 secs to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolutions.

I plug all the right stuff in but its not coming on the screen...i have i fixed to video and everything

Assuming you plugged in everything correctly, (power, yellow white and red) and have set the TV to the proper channel/input, there are only a few other possibilities:

1. Video cord may be bad (unlikely)
2. Xbox 360 may have some sort of hardware problem (would have to ship it in for repairs if it does)
3. TV won't support it. To check that, all you have to do is try it on a different TV.

Oh and something else I remembered. On the end of the video cord that goes into the Xbox, there's a little switch on the side of it. Make sure you have it set appropriately

Good Luck :)

Xbox 360

If you are getting nothing when you try to turn it on, no lights or anything...then check your power converter to see if it is supplying proper voltage. This can easily be done with a multimeter.

If the power converter is ok, I would call xbox and see about getting warranty work done.

If you are getting red lights where it shows what controllers are hooked up (they are green when working correctly), then you will most likely need warranty work.

If you xbox turns on but you are getting no picture to your tv, I would check it on a different TV to see if possibly the input ports on TV are fried.

Also check to make sure that all connections like power cord, RCA cables are hooked up correctly and firmly in their socket.

Hope this helps.

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.

What do I do to change from black & white to color on the screen?

Don't rate me badly for this, because this most likly is wrong, but try adjusting the TV Settings. It depends on the TV you are using and input cords (take a look at how firmly the input cords are) but try pressing menu then picture qualitity. Hope it works
