1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

I was playing my ps3 then i tried to turn it off but i press the power button and the reset button on my ps3 and now when i turn my game on the ps3 screen frezzes and i cant fix it

Hey, Try unplugging the power from the back of the ps3 system and turning it back on. If this does not solve the problem then go to settings and factory restore the system this will delete any bug or corruption you might have got there. after this just connect back up to the internet and retrieve your psn account. :)

Movies will play, games will load the intro screen with music and still pic(such as madden 11) but when you choose to play, the screen goes black...why?

Hey there,

No promises this will work, but you can give this a try. Hold the power button on your PS3 until you hear it beep twice. This will bring you to Restore Mode. From here you will want to set it to Restore Default Settings. This will keep all your PS3 Data in-tact but restore the video, sound, and system settings to default.

It could just be that you set the Video Settings of your PS3 to 1080p when your TV can only handle 1080i.

I was changing the display setting on my ps3, i set it to something and my screen white blue, but seems it saved the settings, ive turned my ps3 off and back on but no pic, the cords all in correctly,...

Yes, hold the power button down until you hear two beeps it may have to come on go off and come back on again before you hear two beeps so just hold the power button down until you hear those beeps release the power button and a settings menu should pop up. Hope this helps.

No connection on ps3 to t.v.

try resetting your video settings.....see if this helps, otherwise you could have a bad video cable or PS3.
Hook up your origional cable that came with Ps3..the red, yellow, white one.

1. Turn off PS3 with switch on back
2. Turn switch back on. Red light should be on.
3. press and hold power button for approx 8 seconds till multi beeps are heard. Turn off and back on. See if you get a pic...If not your ps3 might be broken, or bad video cable.
