Welcome to Fixya

Try the troubleshooting procedure below:

Step 1 - Turn off the playstation 3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.

Step 2 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the playstation 3 is powering on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is red).

Step 3 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the playstation 3 to power on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At this point release the power button. if you succeeded in activating the safe mode, you will see a message on the screen saying 'connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button.

Step 4 - Perform the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one option works, do not continue onto the other options.

Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Rebuild Data Base
Restore PS3 System etc...

After I updated my console and it restarted the screen just stays black and does not do anything. I've tried unplugging and plugging it back in. Still doesn't work. Please help. Brand new system.


Try resetting the video:

While the PS3 is off (solid red led)

Hold down the POWER BUTTON until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release the power button.

Let me know what happens.

My screen is blank and the contollers won't sync up


Sounds like it may be a video problem. Try reseting your system:

1. make sure the system is off

2 hold down the power button for 5-6 seconds, until you hear a second beep

You should be able to use it.

If that doesnt fix it, please let me know the serial number on your ps3, how you are connecting it to your tv (composite, hdmi etc) and the last time it was working and what you have done since.

My ps3 will play disk but i have no home start up screen. it appears black although you can hear the sounds as you scroll through the menu


First thing you should try is a manual video reset.

While the PS3 is off (red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, QUICKLY release.

That will reset the video.

Let me know if that works.

My son dropped my ps3 and it stills turns on but the display screen is black and when i try to turn it off ,i have to pull the cord.


sounds like the main board might have cracked, hope not but its a possibility, we can try a hard reset and see if it fixes the ps3's programing (if its a programing error) when your system is on hold the power button down until you hear 2 beeps (providing this works being you have to turn off the system by unplugging it) Oh have you tried using the power switch in the back? Anyway if u hear the dual beep it signifies that the system has reverted back to the factory settings. Hope this works for you

All the connections work the ps3 comes on but then goes black


You may have messed up the Screen-Settings, to solve this try this.

Step 1: Turn off the PLAYSTATION 3 by holding the Power button on the front of the unit till the Power light is red.

Step 2:
  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the PLAYSTATION 3 is powering on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (Power light is red).

Step 3:
  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PLAYSTATION 3 to power on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the Power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button."
  4. Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PLAYSTATION 3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode.
  5. Then you will see the Safe Mode menu.

Step 4
: We recommending performing the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one of the options work, do not continue onto the other options.
  1. Restore Default Settings
  2. Restore File System
  3. Rebuild Database
  4. Restore PS3 System (This will wipe your harddrive, so remember to backup savegames.)

PS3 blackscreen, but sound! tried all common tricks to reset!


Try your cable connections..either its not conencting properly to the back of your tv. or your cord is fried. Try a different tv and see if it works, if it does, it may be the connectors on your TV.

No picture on tv screen.


Had the same problem. When I turned on the console, the screen went a bit fuzzy at first and then remained blank. There was no sound either, but I could still turn it off with the controller. I checked all the connections and even plugged it into another T.V. I have now discovered the problem! The scart connector which came with the PS3 wasn't working properly. Didn't have the prob before because I wasn't using it. Hope that this helps. If not, try holding the power button down for a few seconds after turning on the system. You'll hear a beep noise and the system will try to adjust its AV output or something. Worth a try anyway.
