PS3 No signal to the TV

Our PS3 is not being recognized by our TV, "No signal". I tried it on other TVs as well. Same problem. I also setup our old PS2 using the same configuration and TV setup (Video 2, etc) and it worked fine. I also tried out two different cables and both worked for the PS2 and not for the PS3. The PS3 previously worked fine. Any thoughts? Who could fix this?

    The above solution from 11eleven worked perfectly for me. I was having the "no signal" trouble, held down the power button for 2 beeps and it worked fine after that, first try. Anyone know what causes the problem in the first place?

I'm having similar problems. I had my PS3 on pause, whent out for a couple hours, came back to find a weird fuzzy screen. My PS3 had froze, so I turned it off. I turned it on a couple minutes later, and the green light came on, however, my controllers would not connect, no image was popping up and it also wouldnt turn off unless I flicked the switch on the back. After contacting Sony, they told me it could be an overheating issue. If it has been less than a year, they will replace it, NOT FIX IT. Which is great and all, but unfortunately I am about to lose the countless hours I've put into assassins creed, skate, call of duty 4 and motorstorm.

HOWEVER. If your PS3 is still "functioning properly" except for no signal, turn the power off on the back, turn it back on, press and hold the power button on the front untill you hear the second beep, let go, give it a couple seconds, turn it off from the back and then back on, hold it till the second beep again. Good luck.

P.S. I recomend getting the extra cooling fan for it, and saving game data on another card (SD) incase crap like this happens.

Hey I have the same problem, when I turn my ps3 on the green light shows but there is no screen showing for the game, and my tv says no signal. After waiting hours it sometimes finally works, but as soon as I turn it off to go outside or and come back in to play it doesn't work. Sony gave me many options such turning it on in safe mode amd also deleting corrupted data. Ive tried everything but I think I jus need a cooler to keep the system from overheating suggested from PSN

Hi, have just spent 3 hours trying to solve a sudden loss of channels and appearance of SBS (which we didn't have before)... checked HDMI, rescanned but little signal - turns out it was the aerial cable (a long and cheap one) that once I removed and ran the aerial from the ps3 tuner to tv and then tv to aerial port was fine (I had linked in the video previously and all worked fine up until today)...? Just another thing for someone to try - process of elimination worked for me but hope it takes you less time!! :)

you could have a loose south bridge chip, you will need to do a re-flow.
also check any small resisters next to the HDMI port.

How do you use PS3 and DVD player with the Toshiba 32Dtu2 LCD TV?


The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.

Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.

If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.

If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps!

I inherited a Sharp LCD 32" flat screen TV that's only about 2.5 years old. It worked fine at its previous location. Upon bringing it to my house, I've tried disconnecting the cable from my TV &...


Try going into your setup menu. Look for a setting for "Cable/Air". Try switching it to Cable and then doing a channel search. If you are using a cable box try setting channel to 3 on tv. Those are the two easiest things I can think of off the top of my head without seeing it.

PS3 hdmi only working on some displays


I have noticed using an HDMI cable that with some of the newer tvs you have to set up the tv also to enable HDMI for a game system. Like you said before internet tv and blueray dvd player work fine. Try adjusting the settings on the tvs themselves. I have a 50in DLP mitsubishi, and had a very troubling time getting my ps3 to work on that particular tv set while it worked flawlessly on other sets. And what I had to do was enter my tv setup menu and then power on my ps3 with both my AV and HDMI cables connected, it would pick up the AV first. Then I would alter the video settings on the PS3 for HDMI, and unplug the AV cable. Exit the tv menu and then reenter it. Then I had to setup my HDMI port from the tv to game in order for it to work, where you can set options ar usually like cable/dvd/sat, and so on. Without my TV being set to game that way it would not work. Try this and see if it helps. Good Luck.

PS3 No signal to the TV


To solve this, when the ps3 is in standby (solid red light), just hold the power button. It should beep on, then beep again in about 5 seconds. This will automatically search for the optimal audio video output. if if beeps on then turns off, just try again, it takes 1 or 2 tries sometimes. the reason this is happening is because your ps3 is set to one AV output, ex. composite(red yellow white), HDMI, and then you changed the cable to a different one. another way to fix it is plug both cables, HDMI and composite, into the tv and ps3, then go to settings and change the output to the desired one.
