Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

60GB PS3 had been hit by a power surge. HDMI not working.

My 60GB PS3 had been hit by a power surge and everything hooked up through video(TV, cable box, Receiver) got damaged. The HDMI won't show a picture but the regular(yellow)composite will. Is there a way I can fix it for less than sending it to Sony for $150?

Hook up the ps3 thru the regular yellow composite and HDMI. Go into the settings and change the output to HDMI and then see if you can get video thru the HDMI, if you don't then the mainboard is bad and you would have to send it to Sony unless you can get your hands on another broken sony ps3 with a good main board.

Can a tv working normally after been stuck by lighting


In most cases no, depends on level of surge. I've seen cases where a surge came in through an HDMI cable and take out the HDMI port on a TV, everything else worked. I've seen cases where a surge damaged multiple boards on a set. So again it depends how how big of a surge, and whether the surge comes in through the power cable or an video/audio input.

Please do the following steps to reset your PS3 display :-

Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Wait for the PS3 to detect your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Dynex tv works. bought ps3. when hooked up to


I would suggest you check if your PS3 is set up on going through the HDMI Cable.On your PS3's XMB scroll to settings -> Display Settings -> ANd from there go down to the one that says "Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr Super-White (HDMI)" and hit X and select the option Yes... That sets the PS3 displaying through the HDMI
If you are already have done that I'm pretty sure you know you have to change the Input on your TV to HDMI... Take your remote and hit Input -> Scroll down to HDMI on the Input Source menu and hit Enter when you get to HDMI
If the AV on your PS3 works and not your HDMI sounds like Display Settings issue...
If you have done all that, that is strange if it still doesn't work.
There are some people that are having problems with the AV Cable with the PS3, I tried this and it really does work. I switched from HDMI on one tv to a AV Cable on another and when I did that neither TV would display content from my tv. The fix for this is resetting your PS3, like on a iDevice you hold the home button and lock button, for the PS3 you hold the Power off button and the Eject button for around 10 seconds. This resets your PS3 into default video settings. Until it Turns on, Beeps, and Turns off. This should work.

PS3 vs Toshiba 65" 65hm117


Sorry to here about your problem. I have a 65HM167 Toshiba tv which is the same as your model, and I have my PS3 connected HDMI with no problems. Try using a different brand HDMI cable and a different HDMI input on the tv if you have not already done so. Hope this does it for you, good luck.

Display not working


how down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.
