    I see. Do you mean the cords connecting to your TV? Or the power cord? The PS3 has an automatic system recovery and checker if this happens. For example, you are in the middle of playing a game, and for some reason you lose power. It gets unplugged, or power failure in the house. The next time you turn the system on it will tell you "The system was shut down incorrectly. Now performing memory check. The system will restart after this is complete." It's automatic, and will do the check by it's self.

    I don't get anything on my tv. Some times just a bunch of dots on the screen.

    Do you get sound? Are you using an HDMI cord?

    Then I would say you have a bad HDMI cord. Try connecting with the regular playstation cord that seperates yellow red and white. That is if your TV has the inputs for (Component) in. It sounds to me like your system is fine, you just have to find the correct video settings. Also, check your TV's settings. The PS3 handles both 720 and 1080p with a frame refresh rate of 60 hertz.

First, how are you connecting? RCA jacks(red yellow white cords) or HDMI? If it's the RCA cords, they were known to develope shorts in the yellow cord that connects to your TV. Just try another cord. They are very cheap, and the cords from all of the other Playstations will work for the PS3. Second, try to do a picture reset on your system. Sometimes, going from HDMI, back to the RCA confuses the system because the RCA connections are NOT detected automatically, HDMI is. To do a picture reset, turn the system on, then push the power button once,(you'll hear a beep) then push and hold the power button until the system shuts off.(you should hear 2 beeps) Then when you turn the system back on, the picture will be reset. ^^ Good luck, and I hope this helps.

No picture


I'm sure you already checked the connections on both the ps3 and Tv to make sure they are firmly and properly connected.
So, when turning on the ps3, hold the power button for at least 6 seconds until you hear a second beep. this should reset your audio/video settings to normal.

if using HDMI, wait for about a minute for the ps3 and TV to negotiate a connection.
