Re: problem help

Ok bud, here's what id do from one gamer to another. dont have a ps3 though, but a ps2 and an xbox. it could be one of two things. the 1st, you could have your AV jacks, red white and yellow connected to the wrong colors, this would cause no picture to show up. make sure they are the same if that doesnt do it, than unfortunatly in my opinion you may need to see if its still under warranty. since something is either fried or the cables could be threaded wrong or something insdie the console, and you cant gain access to that unless you take out all the screws, and i did that for my ps2 take my advice dont do it. if that isnt it, than I dont know, but i thought id give it a shot :)

When i turn my ps3 on i get no menu screen. tv says no signal and have a blank screen. as soon as i put a game in i get the picture on the tv

It sounds like your PS3 is putting out a resolution that your tv can't display when it is on the menu screen. The fix for this would be to press and hold the PS3 power button until you hear two beeps. This will default it to factory display settings and should set it to a resolution your TV can handle.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

No picture or sound

You may have incorrect video setting. Try going back to default settings by holding the power button down for about 10 sec.

You need to turn off the system with the "hard" button in the back of the unit, when you switch it back on hold the power button down for 15 secs, this should reset your vid settings.

I'm sure you already checked the connections on both the ps3 and Tv to make sure they are firmly and properly connected.
So, when turning on the ps3, hold the power button for at least 6 seconds until you hear a second beep. this should reset your audio/video settings to normal.

if using HDMI, wait for about a minute for the ps3 and TV to negotiate a connection.

No Picture on PS3

If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, touch the system's power button for more than 5 -10 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
