Try to unplug the system and turn it back on, some times you can get it to work that way, or it could be the audio video cable connected to your tv

My ps3 console signal isn't working but the sound works but there is no signal! not even a hdmi cable works help!


Try these tips to fix the so-called "black screen of death".

Tip 1: The main reason of HDMI black screen problem due to HDMI cable may be damaged and not properly connected to the PS3 console. Please follow below step to troubleshoot PS3 HDMI cables problem:

1) Restart your PlayStation 3.
2) Look for loose cables.
3) Try to unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them back in. If you found out that your HDMI cable is damaged, borrow a friends cable and try it. If your friends cable works fine, and the black screen error disappears. Then you can buy a brand new HDMI cable for a replacement.

Tip 2: Only try as last resort. There is a possibility you'll lose all data on your PS3's hard drive. If tip 1 didn't work, you will need to go a step deeper and reset your console. Most PS3 gamers are not aware that Sony actually included a black screen of death troubleshooting method and other HDMI problems in the PS3 manual, you can find it under the troubleshooting section - topic "console reset".

If you do it correctly, the console reset fix will allow you to reset back your PS3 to its default HDMI settings without impacting your gamer profile, and other storage data on the hard drive.

You will need to perform the following steps:

1. Place your PS3 in stand-by mode.
2. Hold down the touch power button until a series of beeps are heard.
3. Listen for one long beep, followed by two shorter beeps.
4. Release the power button.
5. Follow the instructions on screen.

If it works you should be good to go.

I turn my ps3 on but there is nothing just black screen .how i can fix this problem


First off, you should try turning your PS3 off and removing the HDMI cable from the back of your console. Plug it back in and then restart your console to see if this fixes the problem.

If this does not work then you will need to try a reset on your console (NB- this should NOT delete your save games, gamer profiles etc, but I'm not taking any responsibility if that does happen by mistake)

Put your PS3 into standby mode, then hold down the power button until a series of beeps are heard. Release the button then restart your console. This is actually in the PS3 user's manual too, and it is unlikely that anything is seriously wrong with your PS3.

I hope this helps you to fix your console,

Regards,

It may have the changed somehow, try turning off your ps3, wait 10 secs, turn the ps3 back on and do not release the power button until you hear the beeps, it should reset your display.

PS3 + UPDATE = bad for me


Sounds like your stuck in a firmware update loop.

See what happens when you boot the PS3 with the hard drive out.

Do you still get the same menu on screen?
