Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Ps3 unit stopped working

Playing ps3 on my big screen t.v. worked fine. Took it to my neighbors to see it on his new high def-flat screen. He hooked a cable in the Hdmi output to get it on his T.v....nothing..hooked it up with the regular cables...nothing. Brought it home and now it will not work at all even on my set where it was just working. Black screen..will not power off correctly...green button does not flash and skips to red and there is a clicking sound when it goes to red. Never hooked a cable like that to run the ps3, did it damage the unit? I now have a $600 unit doing nothing. Please help

    when on standby hold the power button for 4 seconds, it runs the optimal settings screen, i dont think this is your prob but it might help. What cable was used at your neighbours? was it an hdmi cable? did you knock your ps3 when moving it?

If it is still under warranty, call the sony customer care line, the uk number is:08705998877. Any other numbers are available on the internet. My laser stopped working today, my ps3 is only two months old. I called the care line this afternoon, and my new ps3 is being delivered tomorrow! They have a technical help line and may be able to help you fix it over the phone.
Good luck.

I have a ps3 60gb capatible for the ps2 I have it hooked up to the TV but its not showing anything on the TV I have the High Def connectors for the TV


It is a known problem with some high def connectors not working properly. The following should be checked before concluding there is a problem
1. Ensure you have your TV tuned to the right output station for as your ps3 is connected.(for example you cannot have your ps3 connected to the second set of av ports on your tv and your tv is on av1, it has to be on av2)
2. Cross-check the functionality of your ps3 using the default av cables that come with it so as to know if your cable or console is faulty.
3. Ensure that you high-def cables are properly connected.
If all the above prove abortive, you have to see a repairer to check-up your ps3 or tv

My ps3 only plays hooked up wooth a high def cord and not the a v cable is it something i can change in settings?


Yes! Under your settings menu on your main screen (2nd in on the left), scroll down to Display Settings and click on the first option. This will prompt you to change your video output to the desired location. The thing is, if you don't have the other connection hooked up as well, it will revert back to the other screen in 30 seconds.

Good Luck!

Respectfully,

Don.

Have xbox 360....got used,no instruct. book,was hooked to flat screen tv, no longer have flat screen tv, have regular tv hook up game comsole to tv, wont work.....why


If it was hooked to a flat screen it was most likely on high def. There is a switch on the connection to the tv to make it work on a regular defination tv. Just slide the switch over to regular and it should work. Hope this helps.

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.

No visual picture


If it's a setting on the PS3 then just hook it up to another T.V. set it back to default and hook it back up to your other T.V.
