Had the ps3 working fine, plugged it into another tv and nothing, the tv wont pick up the signal.. went to plug it back into the 1st tv and still nothing


Try resetting the display back to standard definition -

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep

Wait for the PS3 display to reset

Hope this helps

What do i do when my ps3 turn on, and nothing comes on the tv?


Sounds like you video display settings have been messed with. You can reset this by turning off the console so that the red light is on. Then hold down the power button for five seconds,it will beep a few times.If you have red white and yellow a/v cables laying around for the ps3 unplug the hdmi from the tv and the ps3 connect the a/v cables then turn it on. If you have picture,plug you hdmi into the console and the tv then go to display settings on the ps3 and set it for hdmi out.that should work.

Tv says "no signal" when i turn on PS3


About holding the reset button, I assume you know how to use that trick, you might be missing something, though: Probably you have your TV set to the incorrect input, eg. Connect only the HDMI, set your TV to HDMI input and go with the power button trick (press (youll hear a beep), dont release until you hear a second beep) the system will autmatically display through HDMI, it can take up to 5 secons or so.

I turn on my ps3 and nothing comes on the screen! the sound works but nothing on the screen! ive tried to hold the power button but nothing happens


Check the following:

First try plugging in a VCR or DVD player and see if you get a picture. If not, try changing the video cables. It may also be that your TV video jack isn't working. Which in that case you will have to get a new TV.

Ps3 wont show up on tv


Hey i just posted i have the same problem as you do but then I checked the SONY PS3 website and it solved my problem. Try resetting your video output. I'll paste what it says on the PS3 website but if that doesn't solve your problem go to the website. They have a bunch of troubleshooting solutions for this problem...



If while manually changing the Video Output Settings, the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, you may need to perform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.

  1. Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
  2. Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.
  3. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  4. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).
