Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

No video or audio on PS3

I have tried the posted solutions of trying to reset, but even if I go through multiple on/off, three beep combos I still get no video. I've tried multiple TV's and multiple cables. HELP!

As you said..three beep combos, you got a big problem..it´s a hardware problem called CELL and RSX bga Crack...you will have to reflow the bga connections under the ps3 processors...you will need to use a good smd air resoldering station..and a good flux paste...there are a lot´s of video tutorials of Ps3 Reflow on youtube...search and good luck!!!

When i turn on my ps3, the green light stays on and the tv screen doesn't even change. i changed the cords to make sure the audio/video wasn't just out. i tried to enter 'recovery mode' but it won't even...


If you have a "slim" ps3, it does not beep 3 times. Try this.
First, with the system off,plug in your old red, white, yellow cables into the tv. (make sure your tv is on the correct setting). Now, just turn on the ps3 the regular way. Did you hear the sounds it normally makes when booting up (the ps3 boot music?). If so, thats good. If you did not, check again that the tv is on the right channel, and if possible, try another set of red, white, yellow cables.

If you heard sound, but do not get a picture, turn the ps3 back off. After the red light comes on, hold your finger down on the power button for about 5 seconds. If you have a fat ps3, it will beep 3 times after a few seconds to get back to regular tv mode. If you have a slim ps3, it will beep once, then 1 more time a few seconds later. It should reset and turn back on. If your tv is on the right channel and the cables work, then you should now see a picture and you know your audio/video is working. You can now try your HDMI cable and it should prompt you to use the HDMI at this point.

Hope that helps.
Mike!

I just bought a ps3 and have never hooked up one before. I can't get it to hook up to the tv. I have hooked it up and it looks like it should be working but I don't get audio or video. I have tried it...


Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition. If this does not work then it is probably down to a faulty Graphics Processing Unit on the motherboard which is unfortunately terminal.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

PS3 NO VIDEO/AUDIO output- no display NOTHING NEED HELP!!!!!!!!


I have a friend at playstation and when I called I had no video or audio using the AV Multi Out.
The soultion is:

1. Turn Off in back (wait few seconds for it to re-set)
2. Turn on in back
3. Turn on in front and hold your finger on it 'till it turns off again -
(you get the beep on then the three beeps for reset and it will eventually beep again and turn off)
4. Turn off in back (wait few seconds for it to re-set)
5. Turn on in back
6. Turn on in front hold finger for three beeps and damn it works!

I was so Pissed for two days and spent $80.00 on new cables (that I did not need) and the answer was so simple.. The SONY on-line troubleshooting instructions really need to be updated!

Let me know if this works for you!

Thanks
