Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (80GB) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 3 no video & no sound BUT THE RESET WONT WORK

It powers up, disc drive works, Hd works, fan sounds stronger at first then kicks down could be normal due to not doing much of anything, When you try the reset it powers on beeps once then powers off, no blinking lights, also the usb ports dont seem to get power, could this just be a power supply issue or ??? power on then gets to login menu then freezes. there are dots randomly all over the screen.

Power supply is very easy to replace. if you plan on working on unit you will void all warranty cuz you remove the sticker to get into it. 90 percent sure its the powersupply.

Hi forever_drea

PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER IF YOU FIND IT HELPFUL !

1- Turn off the power of your PS3 and then turn it back on again.
2- During that, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen.
3- And that's about it. What it does is, completely resets the video settings to 480p I think, the basic configuration, which enables it to work on any TV or monitor.
4- Once you get something on your TV / monitor screen, you can configure your PS3?s video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to.

DO YOU FIX PS3s... I have tryed everything i can think of incloding different cables HD & normal,different TVs HD & normal Also holding down the power button and waiting for the beeps.But nothing...


  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).

SAFE MODE

Have a look at this, it may help.

My ps3 wont come on the light comes on but the screen doesnt i just got it fixed yesterday from sony i paid 150 and now its working


It sounds like your PS3 may be in HD mode.
Try pressing and holding the power button until you hear 2 beeps. This will reset the video to standard output.

No video or sound


Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.

Thanks,
Ced
