Re: ps3 wont show a picture or sound

Hi Azzuri,


Try the other A/V ports.  If you cant get it to work on HDMI, try basic A/V. if not these try S-video.


The PS3 has been having solder problems with the A/V connectors.  You need to contact Sony Support at 1-800 345-7669(SONY), and send it to them.

If you do not want to mess with Sony, then I will attempt to repair this for you.  I run the Playstqtion Clinic at   Repair fee for the PS3 is $30, plus shipping.  No charge if I do not get it running. I have not had that problem yet. Running a 100% repaired record.

I can not see any picture or sound at all. We have the HDMI cable pluged in the PS3 and the TV, but red white ,and yellow plugs we r not sure where they should be.

There are different settings for PS3 video output, i.e. if it is set for HDMI it wont display when a scart lead is used. Try the scart connector, if it works go into settings and change to how you want it set, dont forget to save settings

My ps3 will turn on but wont show a picture on the tv or give sound

Reset the video settings by turning on the ps with only the power cable plugged in, when turning on continue to hold the power button until you hear a second set of beeps then turn off the console.
Boot up the ps and plug in your av/hdmi cable and you should have picture and sound.

Used my hdmi cable on my other tv perfect,pluged it back to my old tv and it dont work why ? ps3 im on about

f you attached your PS3 to an HDMI capable TVit asks you if you want to switch to HD Mode.

However, once you attach it back to a regular TV you get no picture.

Follow these steps to resolve:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can flick the power switch in the back then back on again.

2. With your PS3 connected to the TV and the TV on, press and hold the power button.

3. Hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release.

4. Wait a few seconds and the PS3 logo should appear.

You need to clarify a few things. Does it have sound? Also, is there a green light on the front of the PS3? Has it ever been played on the HDMI jack and then moved to the A/V jack?

No sound on tv or from the actual ps3 unit, no picture.

be sure all cords are plugged in correctly and that the tv itself works if nothing helps and its not any of the cords you may need to get it looked at.

Ps3 wont show up on tv

Hey i just posted i have the same problem as you do but then I checked the SONY PS3 website and it solved my problem. Try resetting your video output. I'll paste what it says on the PS3 website but if that doesn't solve your problem go to the website. They have a bunch of troubleshooting solutions for this problem...

If while manually changing the Video Output Settings, the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, you may need to perform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.

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