Samsung TV Is Not Picking Up A Playstation 3 HDMI Signal

If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.

My PS3 worked fine for 2 months, then just like that I get "no signal" on the tv screen. Nothing has been changed (cable or tv). I've tried holding the on/off button down till the unit turns back off, but...

Your A/V cables might not work anymore. Do you have any spare A/V from a ps2? Try the cable on your ps3 to see if you can get a signal then. If you don't get a signal it is a problem either with your ps3 or the TV. Try using a different TV, if it continues to happen than it's your ps3. I highly doubt it's your ps3 and doubt you will get to this step, but if you do what you need to do next is buy an HDMI cable and hook it to your ps3 and tv. If your tv doesnt accept HDMI than i dont know what to tell you. If you do this step and it still doesnt work than sorry it didnt work. Hope this helps, good luck.

PS3 not playing games


I had exactly the same problem. I managed to fix it by executing so called Rebuild Database operation.

I followed these instructions;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu.

Cant acess ps3 Xbar menu,still plays games

it sounds like you haven't set the display settings correctly. turn off your ps3 and try using the red,white,yellow cables (make sure everything is plugged in correctly). if you get a signal, then change the display settings to whatever connection you will use.

hope that helps
