Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

TV Blank when powering PS3

Power turns on the PS3 properly, goes from red to green, but the TV stays completely blank. When I put a game in the light turns blue and green and still nothing on the TV. Is there a solution to this problem.

    what are you using to connect your ps3 to your t.v?
    HD cable?
    Optical cable?
    Av multi scart?

    The ps3 could be set for HD and if your using AV scart then you wont get a picture, or vice versa

Ps3 wouldnt turn off. unplugged now will not turn on


how long was it trying to turn off before you unplugged it? it might of being performing an update which can be problematic if you canned the power to it while it was doing this.
you could try a factory reset but you will lose your saved data.

Try these steps:

1. Before resetting cables, make sure PS3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back.
2. Unplug the power cord of the PS3 and TV from the wall socket.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI Out on back of PS3
4. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI Input port of the TV
5. Plug the PS3 and TV back in to the wall socket
6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PS3 on.
7. While the PS3 in standby mode(red light on) hold down the on/off button on front of system until the system goes into standby mode again. (So the light cycle would go red light-green light-then back to red. This will ensure you held down long enough to reset video output settings.
8. Turn on the PS3 and once the system finishes powering up, the video output settings will automatically reset.

A blank screen


You probably need to reset the video. Here's what you do: Turn the PS3 off from ther back switch and then back on so that the light on the front is red. Then press down on the power button and DO NOT let go. Wait for it to turn green then beep and then go back to a red light. Then press the power button again. After you have tried that, either tell me it didn't work so I can offer more advice or tell me it worked. Thanks. :)
