Try holding down the power button when you switch it on, for 4 seconds it runs the optimal settings screen and selects the best option for the leads fitted. hope this helps

My ps3 didnt want to show any video/audio. i did the whole 3 beep thing and it brought me to a menu, then i chose to reset the whole console, then i turned it off and on all of a sudden the screen wen


I think that your whole HDD is corrupt, but that doesn't explain why it wouldn't turn on. I don't know if it might have some adverse effects to do safe mode twice in a row. I wouldn't think it would be an issue. Have you tried other A/V connections? Like another cord, or HDMI? Give it a shot, it might be a simple cord issue. Well worth a look into. Good luck.

Nothing shows on screen when inserting game , i hear the disc is turning but nothing shows on screen


Make sure you have the cables hooked up properly, regardless of whether your using an HDMI cable or regular A/V cables.

Best thing to do in a case like this is to do a factory reset on your PS3. Be sure that the A/V cables are being used originally and are hooked up properly.

Here is how to do the factory reset on a PS3:

1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Try that, if you still don't get video and you know the cables and the TV are set to the right output then its an issue with the main board not having any output.

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.
