My ps3 console signal isn't working but the sound works but there is no signal! not even a hdmi cable works help!


Try these tips to fix the so-called "black screen of death".

Tip 1: The main reason of HDMI black screen problem due to HDMI cable may be damaged and not properly connected to the PS3 console. Please follow below step to troubleshoot PS3 HDMI cables problem:

1) Restart your PlayStation 3.
2) Look for loose cables.
3) Try to unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them back in. If you found out that your HDMI cable is damaged, borrow a friends cable and try it. If your friends cable works fine, and the black screen error disappears. Then you can buy a brand new HDMI cable for a replacement.

Tip 2: Only try as last resort. There is a possibility you'll lose all data on your PS3's hard drive. If tip 1 didn't work, you will need to go a step deeper and reset your console. Most PS3 gamers are not aware that Sony actually included a black screen of death troubleshooting method and other HDMI problems in the PS3 manual, you can find it under the troubleshooting section - topic "console reset".

If you do it correctly, the console reset fix will allow you to reset back your PS3 to its default HDMI settings without impacting your gamer profile, and other storage data on the hard drive.

You will need to perform the following steps:

1. Place your PS3 in stand-by mode.
2. Hold down the touch power button until a series of beeps are heard.
3. Listen for one long beep, followed by two shorter beeps.
4. Release the power button.
5. Follow the instructions on screen.

If it works you should be good to go.

My ps 3 was working fine and all of a sudden it went off. I tried to turn it back on and can on for a sec and then went off again. The light started flashing red.


Dear Friend,

The red flashing light might indicate and error with your PS3 console just follow this step to reset your console. This might help,

Press down the power button, you will hear one beep, keep pressing then, the second beep will sound twice. From there it will prompt you to the reset screen.

Good Luck!!

My ps3 work fined at first with the three prongs cable then i used the HDMI and it work fine but when i go to a different tv and use the three prong it wont show nothing, it only works if i uses the HDMI...


You need to reset the resolution, try these steps :

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.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

PS3 turns on but nothing comes up on the screen/no sound.


First thing to try is a video reset.

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

Let me know what happens.

WE USED THE PS3 IN OUR LCD TV BUT WHEN WE TRIED TO USE IT WITH THE ORDINARY TV,THE VIDEO AND SOUND WONT COME OUT THE SCREEN.


Make sure the tv is set to the right video and audio input. If your using a different type of connection (A/V instead of HDMI), make sure the PS3 is set to the right setting.

If you do these and your still not getting any video. Hook up something else to your regular tv to see if the inputs work on it at all.

If other things work then its a setting in your ps3. If nothing works on that tv then its a problem with the inputs on the tv.

There are a few things you can try first. If your system was previously working but now doesen't show video. try to remember if you changed any settings on the ps3 or did anything with your television different, video mode ect. If you havent been able to get a picture the whole time your ps3 may be set for a different video mode than your currect set up. If this is the case try turning off the ps3, then holding the power button until you hear a few beeps. Each beep is the ps3 changing video modes hdmi/component/composite/s-video. try this and see if you get picture.

Hope this helps.

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.
