My hdmi cable only puts out sound but no picture. i even bought a brand new one. whats wrong?


Hi, all you have to do is the following :-

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

My PS3 wont start games when im signed in on PSN


HI I HAD THAT PROBLEM SO I ASKED THE EXPERT..HE SOLVED MY PROBLEM! BASICALLY THERE A CORRUPTED DATA ON YOUR COMPUTER WHICH NEEDS FIXING.
QUICK STEPS: PLEASE NOTE YOU MAY LOSE YOUR SAVED DATA SO BEST TO BACK UP SYSTEM TO A USB FIRST.
ONCE YOU BACKED UP YOUR SYSTEM FOLLOW THIS STEPS ONLY IF YOUR SURE. THIS WORKED FOR ME, IT WORKS 90% OF THE TIME SO I WAS TOLD BY THE EXPERT. REALLY DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH DATA HAS BEEN CORRUPTED.
QUICK STEP:
  • TURN PS3 TO STANDBY BY PRESSING THE BUTTON THATS ON THE CONSOLE..HOLD THE BUTTON,YOU WILL HEAR FIRST BEEP THEN ANOTHER BEEP 5SECONDS LATER, THEN THE THIRD BEEP. HOLD BUTTON DOWN UNTIL THE LIGHT TURNS RED THEN MOVE FINGER.
  • NOW SWITCH ON PS3 HOLDING POWER BUTTON ON THE CONSOLE..HOLD THE BUTTON DOWN YOU WILL HEAR FIRST BEEP THEN ANOTHER BEEP 5 SECS LATER, THEN TWO BEEPS TOGETHER.LET GO OF BUTTON WHEN YOU HEAR TWO BEEPS.
  • IT SHOULD SAY SOMETHING ABOUT CORRUPT DATA. AGREE TO IT. SOON YOU SHOULD HAVE A 6 OPTION MENU COME UP.
  • PRESS NUMBER 3...RESTORE SYSTEM FILES
  • IT SHOULD THEN RESTART COMPUTER.
  • NOW TRY PLAYING YOUR GAME ONLINE.
  • ITS MEANT TO WORK AS IT DID FOR ME.
IF IT DOESNT WORK THAT MEANS THERES ANOTHER PROBLEM. I WOULD ADVICE YOU TO ASK THE EXPERT. THEY TELL YOU STEP BY STEP, THEY FIXED MINE IN HALF HOUR. ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY.IF THEY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM THAT IS! HOPE THIS HELPED YOU GUYS...GOODLUCK!

I was gaming on my PS3 and the whole system went down. Now


Hi.

Right, you need to hold down the power button untill this happens:

BEEP!

BEEP! BEEP!

BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!

The recovery screen should appear. Choose the desired option.
