Alright mate, Try these steps...
1. turn on the ps3 so it is in stanby i.e. the red light is on. 2. push and hold down on the red button for as long as it takes to turn the ps3 back off on to standby, you should hear a beep. 3. when it goes back to standby do the same thing again, and this time you will hear one beep (when you pressed it) and two more beeps and it will go back to standby 4. when it is back in standby again, push and hold down the button again, you'll hear the first beep, then three more beeps, and it will go back to standby. 5. do the same again, however when it turns on this time, if done correctly, it should say connect the controller using a usb cable. do this and turn it on. 6. Go through everything it says on screen, 6 options should eventually appear, for me, option 4 did the trick, but i heard option 3 works too, as the other ones do too i presume. 7. the final part is that it will ask you to restore the hard drive etc... just keep pressing the ok button.
if all fails, then phone this number (sony) 0818 365 065. glad to help. let me know.... David.

My playstation3 will turn on looks like it is working but my tv screen is blank nothing comes up


Hi,

Try to reset the video settings on the PS3 and also make sure the cables are all attached and that you have the TV on the correct input source.

Turn the PS3 off so the red light is on. Hold down the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. Release the power button and press it again.
That should have reset the video settings so you will be able to set the video settings again on the other TV and access the PS3 menu to set it up.


If there is anything else please post back.



Regards.

My ps3 will boot up and the green light is on but i cannot see what is being displayed. i once changed the settings from the three prong to HDMI cable and since then i have not been able to view anything...


1. Turn off the PS3
2. Plug in whatever cable you are going to use
3. Hold the power button down until it beeps once followed by two quick beeps

This resets the display settings to defaults and you will see the picture again.

My PS3 video was messing up so i turned it off. But now the video wont even show. All of the plugs are correct and the game system will turn on but i dont see anything or hear anything from it? Can you...


Have you tried replacing the video cable going from your ps3 to the Television... if it is an HDMI cable and you have more than 1 HDMI port on your TV, try a different port as well.


Hope this helps.
