Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My PS3 worked yesterday but not today. It is not giving out Video or audio signal to the T.V.
When I try to link the controllers they just blink (all 4) as if trying to register with the PS.
I called the help line. The Soft restart failed.
Red light on - press once(one beep), goes green then nothing else. Long press (10sec) one beep and returns to red.
The lady on the help line could not help me any further and now I am stuck. Can you help?
The software is 1.92 installed six weeks ago when I first got my PS3.
I had the same problems.... no signal for hdmi or the ( red,white,yellow) wires..... im no ps3 expert so i came on here looking for help but found out i had the green light of death.....i read around and
found no help..... so i decided to play around with everything ...ok this is all i did and now it works...... i turned on my ps3 40g held onto the power button (only the one that looks like an i) make sure to keep your finger off the button that looks like an O. i had both hdmi and the red,yellow,white plugged in then i got a signal its says ......we have found a hdmi connection would i like to switch..... i first selected yes and then it tried to go to hdmi but got a black screen so i turned off and repeated my steps and this time i selected to not to switch to hdmi and now my ps3 works again......at first everything was blurry for like 10 to 20 minutes but now everything is good......
ok thats it... im pretty busy..... just wanted to see if i can help...........
questions .. hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org i cant gaurantee to get back at you right away but i will try ..... bye guys hope all works well for all......

Try this if you are having a problem getting picture/sound from your PS3. power on the system but keep it in hibernate mode, hold down the power button until it beeps twice, turn on and your system should now have vid/aud...if not hit me back up..... email@example.com

You have to go into the display options and change the resolution to 480i instead of 480p or higher

I got the same problem, gave this PS3 to my kids for Christmas, two days later 'no signal' took it back to shop, got a replacement, took the new one out of the box and it was the same, thought it was my TV

Since you guys have had this problem, and I'm currently running head first into this problem, I need to ask you if they fixed it or if they replaced it. I dont want to lose all my game data. Did they put all the stuff on your old HDD onto your new one????

It is the comunication between hdmi from the ps3 to the tv
if you unplug it from the console and reconnect it (when powerd on) it should do the trick

I just had the same problem with my PS3 through HDMI and OPTICAL cable. Its not a problem with the cords or the inputs either. it works through component, but I dont want component!
I already got a replacement because of it, and the replacement does the same thing right out of the box!

They will replace the unit you send in with a refurbished unit with a 90 day warranty for $150. No other option. Mine mysteriously came back to life, but now I am getting a ton of polygon problems. It will draw like 98% of the picture correctly, but then there will be weird sticks shooting out of everywhere because they are rendered wrong. This to me says the video card fried and now is very damaged. But if I send it in now with semi-functionality, or a year from now when completely dead, it is still $150. Sony warranty sucks ass.
