Make sure all your connections are correct!
You can always RESET your PS3 by; "When turning on PS3, press and hold the power on button untill you hear 2 bips. 1st bip will be right away then the 2nd bip will be in about 5 seconds.
This will reset you PS3 to use the RCA jacks (Yellow Red White). Then hook it up using those jacks.
Good Luck.

Also if over heating: Check the Fan or follow these Directions!
If you don't have money to send it out for repair.
Turn off and unplug your PS3 for atleast 1 hour.
Take an "Air Can" and blow it out all the dust from all angles.
*You have to use Clean Air and never turn the can Upside down nore angle it too much, your air can will start shooting cold liquid! VERY BAD!
After you clean out your PS3 then let it sit for ½ hour and then turn it on and see if you fixed the issue!
Good Luck!

Ps3 restarts itself (when it does work nothing on screen)


sounds like your ps3 has overheated. ask a good electronic repair shop to change the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and the heat sync. let them know the gpu and cpu may need to be reflowed.

Tip: Keep your PS3 flat do not store standing on it side this will help prevent the thermal compund from moving as much

My PS3 turns on to green light but nothing comes on screen


After the system boots up, hold your finger down on the metal spot where you normally turn it on. it'll completely reset all settings & hopefully set to the proper video output.

The "NO VIDEO/PIXELATED VIDEO/FROZEN VIDEO" problem is all too common on the PS3. It results from overheating of the RSX and/or CELL processor. let it cool and resume and pray

Ps3 wont come on!!


Hey, your screen settings may need to be reset. You can reset your playstation 3 screen settings by first turning of the playstation three, then turning it on by hitting the power button on the console and hold it for 5 seconds. You should hear it beep several times and then it should work.
