The image on the tv is constantly turning off, the lights on the ps3 are green and blue. The ps3 is connected with an hdmi clable. how can fix the image problem?


This is sometimes caused by what is known as the "High Definition Handshake". When your PS3 is connected via PS3 it tried to detect the optimal settings for your TV. If it cannot perform the handshake you get the symptoms that you are describing.

When the screen is going on and off, unplug the HDMI cable and plug it back in to perform the handshake again. If this does not work try resetting the display settings by turning the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on). Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it and then again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep.

This will reinitialize the display and hopefully sort your problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Niether the hdmi chord or the av chord are producing any type of picture on the tv. when i turn the ps3 on the green light comes on but nothing displays on the tv?


Sounds like the Video device for your PS3 has died. You will have to either replace it, or contact PlayStation about getting it repaired.

The system turns on but there is no picture and it sounds the fan doesnt even start to run


try doing a display reset, Turn the PS3 off. Then turn it back on but once you turn it back on continue to hold the power button until you hear the beeps. It will reset your display. If that doesnt work let me know.

Ps3 turns on but no audio or video


try plugging the standard video scart cable in to see if you get pic and/or sound as this uses a different port to see if you have a faulty hdmi cable

PICTURE LAG WITH HDMI HOOKEP TO RCA 42'' L42FHD37


Check in your TV's settings for a selection called "Game mode" It will turn off the scaling chip in the TV(The PS3 will scale the image anyway) and remove the lag it was producing.

Hooking up my new PS3 to my five year old 55" Mitsubishi HDTV.


The Sony outputs 180P, not 1080i. There is a difference. I don't know what exactly, but Sony says 1080p is for superior.
