PS3 does not have a reset button as far as I know. Although the PS3 controller does have the reset button on the underside. It's there if your controller lost its connection to the PS3.

If you want to change from HDMI to Scart you need to press and hold the power button while it's off, than a blue light will turn on on your ps3 and you can stop holding.

SOURCE: ps3 -- quick or full format?

If you know the hard drive is good then do a quick format. If the hard drive has given you problems like losing data, corrupted save files and stuff like that then do a full format (which takes longer) as this will check the sectors out on the hard drive to verify if they are good or bad.

How to reset your playstation 3


If you are having issues with your Playstation 3 where it's locking up or freezing, you might need to reset the unit.

You can preform a reset by holding down the Power button for about 10 seconds. The power light should turn red, then you can let go of the button.

Your PS3 has been reset, try to power on the unit normally to see if your problems persists.

i hope i could help you, if not please let me know.

Playstation is on but screen is black


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

Origiannly had my son's PS# hooked up to our HD TV


You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

    Try reseating the hard drive. Take it out of the PS3 and then put it back in and then turn it on and see if the problem goes away.

    Playstation 3 hook up


    If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
    • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
    • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
    • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
    • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
    If that does not help try contacting sony at

    Ps3 wont come on!!


    Hey, your screen settings may need to be reset. You can reset your playstation 3 screen settings by first turning of the playstation three, then turning it on by hitting the power button on the console and hold it for 5 seconds. You should hear it beep several times and then it should work.
