    Ps3 will not display on the tv

    hold reset button until the game reset, use the rca cable and reconfigure the ps3. after you reset the setup it will work with the rca video cable, if you want to use hdmi, then reconfigure the ps3 to hdmi, from there it will send signal to hdmi not rca anymore.

    Try connecting it to the PS3. After the 4 leds start flashing, disconnect the power from the PS3. Re-connect the power. That usually resets that for me.

    Ps3 wont power all the way up

    if you have moved your ps3 to a different tv or something, the video setting can get messed up, thus having to reset the video settings. here are a few steps to do so.

    1. put your finger on the reset button and wait until the ps3 is in standby. (Keep holding your finger on it, don't let go)

    2. turn off the ps3 completely by switching off the power switch (make sure your still holding your finger on the reset button)

    3. turn your ps3 back on (while still holding the reset button) and you will hear a beep. keep holding the reset button until you hear a second beep. let go of the reset button as soon as you hear the second beep

    this should reset the video of your ps3. ive done this to my ps3 before because when i was installing linux i almost screwed up my ps3. when i turned on my ps3 no picture or sound would appear. so i called sony and this is what they told me to do and it worked.
