No display on the television


The system may have been connected with a different video type. Like hdmi, or rca. If you hold down the power button for ten seconds or so, until it beeps a few times, then let it start up, it should fix itself.

Doesnt show up on the television. It does turn on. turned playstation on and off, tried different connections, still nothing


It is likely that the problem is your AV cable. This cable has one plug that connects to your Playstation 3 and a red plug, a white plug, and a yellow plug that connects to your television. Follow these steps to get your PS3 up and running again
  1. Unplug your AV cable from your PS3 and T.V.
  2. Plug in your AV cable to your PS3 and T.V.
When plugging your AV cable back into the T.V. make sure that the red plug is in the red socket, the yellow plug is in the yellow socket and the white plug is in the white socket.
If problems persist try using a different AV cable.

We have an old style(not slim) Playstation 3 and cannot get either av channel, on the TV detailed below, to play it. all plugs are plugged in. we have tried both scarts and the side (yellow, red, white)...


If you've used the HDMI port or another sort of connector and you're switching to a DIFFERENT connector, you need to default the video output on the PS3.
First, you need to plug the PS3 into your tv with just the cables you're going to be using.
Then, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
It should beep and a picture should appear on your screen.

Please use HDMI cable to connect the PS3 to your computer when you found that it is working with that it. It only shows that your three prong cable is defective as it fails every time. Try with another three prong cable and see the results. I will still insist you to use HDMI cable which will give you better picture quality and sound.

No picture on tv screen from ps3 console


It may be that,

1:
You have it on the wrong channel.I personally have had trouble with this.Usually on most modern televisions there is AV 1 2 3 4 and 5,CVI,and HDMI 1 2 and 3.Try each of these channels.

2:
You don't have the cords lined up.The three cords(in the order of Yellow White Red) must be lined up straight up and down.Otherwise the sound will be on one channel while the picture will be on the other.

Thats all I can think of,I hope it helped.

Playstation 3


There are a few things you can try first. If your system was previously working but now doesen't show video. try to remember if you changed any settings on the ps3 or did anything with your television different, video mode ect. If you havent been able to get a picture the whole time your ps3 may be set for a different video mode than your currect set up. If this is the case try turning off the ps3, then holding the power button until you hear a few beeps. Each beep is the ps3 changing video modes hdmi/component/composite/s-video. try this and see if you get picture.

Hope this helps.
