Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 No audio video

My PS3 was working lately and now when I start it up I just get a Green light. Tried to restart system by holding in power and nothing helps. My Hard drive was working just fine before. Is there a solution without paying Sony $150.00?

This problem happens with some of the PS3's and it is a motherboard issue. The PS3 motherboard needs to be reflowed using a reflow station. I have one of these stations on it's way to be able to fix this issue if you still have this problem. You can contact me at ced70@hotmail.com for more details.

Thanks,
Ced

How do i fix my PS3 when I cant see anything, but the system itself looks to be functioning?


You are going to have to do a video reset. Witch takes the video settings of the system back to default. To do this, make sure you have everything hooked up. Power, HDMI. Then, turn the system on, push and hold the power button until the system turns off, then push and hold power button until you hear 2 "beeps" then the video settings will be refreshed. ^^

Hello,

Follow the procedure below to fix the problem on your ps3,

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.

PS3 HDMI No picture nor audio


  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).

Will not play without using HDMI cable


  1. Make sure the 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 AV Cable into the yellow Composite port for video, and into the white and red audio ports (if your TV does not have the red port, simply ignore it) on the back of your TV.
  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).

No video or sound


Hello.
Most likely this is an output problem. But I have had 1 PS3 that had a bad hard drive and it wouldn't even load to the XMB. So try another hard drive and see if that works. Even a swift smack to the old one may work. If that doesn't work try the video out reset.

Reset the Video Output Settings. 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. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

PS3 doesn't appear on screen. Possible power issue.


Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. 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. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
