Re: How do I get my PS3 repaired?

Well PS3's come with a 1 year warranty, I'd check your date of purchase to see if it was under 1 year, if so - you can get it repaired under warranty if it's faulty.

I have a ps4, when I turn it on the blue light will come on and then it'll go to the white one and there is no image on the t.v. even the homepage on the ps4 won't even show. Anyone know why?

1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

HDMI no longer output after lightning storm. ps3 still has all the data and can still output in composite. tried resetting and reboot and still not working

I would try another device that uses HDMI output and plug it into that HDMI tv input to ensure that it is not your tv that is at fault. If the TV is fine, more than likely something in your PS3 got fried. This is actually a common issue with the PS3 as you can see here:

If your tv is fine you will more than likely have to call up Sony for a repair or a replacement. Lightning can do damage to any electronic device from up to miles away. EMF damage is a nasty thing. It used to wreak all kinds of havoc for the wireless internet company I used to work for.

I hope this helps! If it does, please give it a thumbs up!

Ps3 won't transmit on tv, tv works ps3 is running, checked all cords

You need to check and make sure that you are trying to view the PS3's output on the proper channel or input on your TV. If you need to scroll through every channel and input.

If that doesn't work try replacing the A/V or HDMI cables. If it still doesn't work you may need to send it to Sony and have it replaced. The video output section of the console may be bad or not functioning correctly.

If you have a friend with a PS3 try to see if they will bring their's over and let you test it out. If their PS3 won't display then it's something wrong with the wires or the TV.

Hdmi connection doesnt work on ps3

By you saying that you have a new cable & tv, I assume you had the console conected tru composite before (red, white & yellow rca cable). This is what you need to do: Connect the PS3 to the tv with HDMI cable only, do not use the composite cable at the same time, reset your PS3 by pressing and holding the power button, when the power is off, for about 7 to 10 secconds, it would cicle from power off, on, then off again, it would also give you 2 sets of beeps, after the power is off, turn your tv on, make sure you select HDMI input on it, then turn your PS3 on, the console would set itself to the best resolution available on your tv. Give it a try!

No video - blue screen...

since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.

Bad AV Multiout on a Japanese PS3

Copied from another forum: "On the PS3 from Standby (red light on) depress the power button till you hear two beeps. That will reset the resolution and you should get a picture." MANY THANKS to the original poster!
