Maybe your settings got buggered up...
first off, did you ever have video, then it quit?

did you try the cable that comes with the ps3 and then do a video reset? If not, try this

Try this: hook the ps3 to the tv with the ORIGIONAL video cable (the one with red and white audio, and yellow video).

Trun off ps3 with power switch on back. Turn switch back on. press and hold ps3 front power button for 5 to 8 seconds till system double beeps. This resets the video output to standard res. Turn on and see if you have a picture. If not, try another cable. (same cable as Ps2 for this test). If none of that works, you may have a broken PS3

Ps3 Turn on and off right away help


Assuming the power cord was securely plugged in, the PS3's action can result from one of the following:
Faulty Power CordFaulty Power Supply UnitPossible shortage somewhere else on the unit cause it to immediately power off.

I would recommend contacting Sony customer service or to a local service repair shop if it's out of warranty. Unfortunately from the looks of the video there may not be an easy fix.

When my son plays his PS3 after a while the screen goes blank and the message: check signal cable appears. His PS3 is connected to tv with an HDMi cable and the cable that fits into the AV with the three...


Try these steps:

1. Before resetting cables, make sure PS3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back.
2. Unplug the power cord of the PS3 and TV from the wall socket.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI Out on back of PS3
4. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI Input port of the TV
5. Plug the PS3 and TV back in to the wall socket
6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PS3 on.
7. While the PS3 in standby mode(red light on) hold down the on/off button on front of system until the system goes into standby mode again. (So the light cycle would go red light-green light-then back to red. This will ensure you held down long enough to reset video output settings.
8. Turn on the PS3 and once the system finishes powering up, the video output settings will automatically reset.

I was using my ps3 and sudenlly it turn off and wont turn on what can i do


You can try to reset the console:

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

If you're unable to perform the above then you've got either:

RLOD (Red Light of Death - Caused by the unit overheating)
YLOD (Yellow Light of Death - Caused by GPU / CPU )

There are some DIY methods to fix the problem but as someone who fixes PS3's on a daily basis I would HIGHLY recommend you sending your unit into SONY direct for repair.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

My PS3 powers on then light turn yellow/amber after that you hear 3 beeps and red light starts flashing. How do I fix it. pr is it something I have to send off to get fix?


This can be caused by the unit overheating causing solder on the board to melt and bridge (connect). Once this happens, it shorts out the board causing the the error present now. Contact Sony to see if the unit is still under warranty
