When I turn my playstation on, the lights come up but the playstation does not appear on my TV. Also, my remotes do not connect.


You may want to try resetting your display settings with your PS3. I had one that did this. To do this turn the PS3 off. Make sure you are on the correct channel. Push and hold the power button for approximately 15 seconds. You will hear a series of beeps. When this happens you should get a display on the screen asking you if you want to switch your display settings to the one on the screen. Select yes. This should solve the display issue. As far as the controllers not connecting you should be able to plug them into the USB ports on the front of the console. When you do this press the PS button in the center of the controller. This should sync the controllers with the game console.

I get a black screen when I turn on my PS3. When I turn it on I do get the normal start up sound but the screen is black. The power cord is plugged in, the HDMI cord works (I switched 3 different cords...


Your PS3 may not be in HD mode. When you turn on your PS3 hold down the button until you hear a series of beeps. This will switch the PS3 to work with your HDMI. Now turn off and turn on the PS3 normally and you should have video.

I may be wring on the steps so check your manual or reference:

My ps3 was recently connected to a hdmi cord at my friends house now im back home nd i plug the av cords in and nothing is coming up its still connected to the hdmi


Hello. Sounds like you need to adjust the video output setting back to component. Go to settings, display settings, then video output setting. you may need to do this under an hdmi connection in order to see it. Once you change it to component then it will switch over to a standard AV connection.

The lights come on the playstation, but the screen stays black, and it doesnt read the controller, the controller just keeps blinking.


For the screen try making sure the cable is firmly connected to both your ps3 and your tv. For the controller, plug the controller into you playstation with a usb cord and then press the ps button.

It works fine with a high def cable, but when i go to connect it to a tv with the audio video cords nothing at all will come up on the screen.


There are certain settings on the PS3 that has to be changed each time that you switch from High Def to AV. You have to plug both cords in and turn the PS3 on and view the screen with the High Def. You have to go to Settings --> Display Settings --> Video Output Settings
then follow the instructions.
Watch this video and it will help you switch from High Def to AV.

Playstation 3 not coming on the tv


Try flipping the switch in the back of the PS3 off and then on so the light on the front is red... Then, hold down the power button on the front of the PS3 for about 5 seconds until you hear a "beep"... This should reset the audio/video, and you'll be able to see and hear everything... Just did it myself!!!

My screen is purple, and my ps3 games display with purple colors.


I had the same problem and i tried what you tried and no result. Came to find out it was my tv. Depending on your tv you have to programe it just like you had to program your ps3. And if that doesnt work its your monster cord. Ask some one at best buy to help their pretty good.
