You can enter the safe mode for options. Start with system off. Hold the power button on the front. You should here 2 single beeps, the third
should be a quick double beep. Immediately release the button and instructions/options should come up. It might be smart to email sony support first. They have been really helpful to me.

I had a nightmare....I done an update a week ago and all was well until I turned it off and on again later that day and all i would get was the sign in part of start up menu. I would sign in and nothing would happen, no options etc ....just stay on my log in name, so i read the above solution and......What the dude said in the first fix is totally correct and i thank him BIG TIME!!! The first time you attempt to hold the power switch down to wait for two beeps it'll turn the system off.....just repeat it and it'll access restart-resolve problem etc page. I had no idea what the problem was so just done the restore to default settings option and it worked but i lost my saved battlefield 1943 in the process and have gotta re-install all my map pax for cod 5...just let it do its thing overnight!! Anyway, I have my system back and all is well thanx to mborr2118....you saved my life!!!! KEVROK

Picture wont show up on TV from PS3


Make sure the cables are properly connected and nothing is loose. Try turning off your TV and PS3 and disconnect and then connect all the cables back. Try using another cable, if you have HDMI try another cable.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video


This happened to me a few years back so I apologize if it's not 100% accurate. If you can get it to work on another TV, go ahead and connect it to that, and go in to the settings to select the video input. If it's connected through an HDMI cable, then it will probably be set to HDMI. Change the input here to whatever cable you used in the living room. You will have to power it off at this stage, but when you connect to the other TV it should work.
