Check the cables to the back of your TV, make sure they are all connected....If yo run your cables threw a home theatre system, bypass the video in and connect it directly to the TV...If you are using HDMI unplug the cable from the TV, wait 30 seconds and reconnect.....If this doesnt work and all the cables are where they should be, do a hard reset, this is done by turning your system on, waiting for it to load (in your case, for the music to play) and then holding your finger on the power button until it beeps twice. your system will then shut off (it will take 30 to 45 seconds for complete power down) after your system is powered off, just restart it like normal. Hope this helps

When I turn on my ps3 i can hear the sound but i can see nothing.


Try these following steps :
Step 1 Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)
Step 2 Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then beep once more about 5 seconds later. When you hear this second beep let go of the power button.
Step 3 Wait for your PS3 to start up

What this basically does is reset the video output to standard definition. You should now be able to use the PS3 menu and setup your video correctly.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

PS3 start-up. ''Invalid Format'' presented on screen. Can hear sound but no picture. TV is LG Plasma Model # 60PY3D


turn off the ps3. when you turn it back on by the console hold the button down until you hear a beep, keep holding it down until you hear a second beep, this will reset the format back to normal, if you have hdmi or anything else you can change it then from your video settings menu.

PS3 turns on but nothing comes up on the screen/no sound.


First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 is off (red solid light) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release the power button.

Let me know what happens.

Ps3 wont power all the way up


if you have moved your ps3 to a different tv or something, the video setting can get messed up, thus having to reset the video settings. here are a few steps to do so.

1. put your finger on the reset button and wait until the ps3 is in standby. (Keep holding your finger on it, don't let go)

2. turn off the ps3 completely by switching off the power switch (make sure your still holding your finger on the reset button)

3. turn your ps3 back on (while still holding the reset button) and you will hear a beep. keep holding the reset button until you hear a second beep. let go of the reset button as soon as you hear the second beep

this should reset the video of your ps3. ive done this to my ps3 before because when i was installing linux i almost screwed up my ps3. when i turned on my ps3 no picture or sound would appear. so i called sony and this is what they told me to do and it worked.

MY PS3 WONT SHOW UP ON DISPLAY


Turn off the PS3, turn on manually with your finger on the power (touch) button hold until you hear the first beep (powering on) and then hear a second. This should change the output of the video to what you are currently using. If nothing, then check your input channel. Hook something else in the same spot make sure the inputs work and hook up the ps3 and repeat the last steps if needed.

Ps3 no sound nor video


I'm sure you already checked the connections on both the ps3 and Tv to make sure they are firmly and properly connected.
So, when turning on the ps3, hold the power button for at least 6 seconds until you hear a second beep. this should reset your audio/video settings to normal.

if using HDMI, wait for about a minute for the ps3 and TV to negotiate a connection.

if you have a SD TV. ( standard display, not HD ) but chose the HD display option on system settings you wont see picture but hear sound. and same goes if you've chosen SD display but own a HD TV. so try to reset your system somehow or take it in for inspection.
