Hi , what you need to do is reset the video display. Do this by following steps :-

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then again 5 seconds later. When you hear this second beep let go of the power button.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start up.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

How do i get my hdmi to work for my ps3 system


Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.

To reset video output settings:

  1. Turn the PS3 system off by holding the Power button on the front of the console till you see the power light turn red.
  2. Then hold the power button on the front of the console for at least five seconds until you hear a second beep to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

[TOP]

Minimum Requirements

  • PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system
  • SIXAXISTM wireless controller (and USB cable)
  • AC power cord
  • HDMI cable1 (sold separately)
  • TV or display monitor with HDMI port and capable of displaying picture in HD resolution
  • Updated system software installed on your PS3
    Visit PS3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.
  • TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port
    You need to know the TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port on your TV. For instance, if your TV has multiple "Input" or "Video" channels, (i.e., "Input 1", "Input 2", "Input 3", etc.), you will need to toggle through each "Input" channel on your TV until you find the correct channel that displays the HDMI picture. This is important to remember, especially if you do not see the HDMI picture after you connect the cable and configure the PS3 settings. Please refer to the TV instruction manual for more information.

L2046NV Monitor Does Not Display, but Another Monitor Will.


The problem is with the Westinghouse monitor. The video card inside the monitor is most likely faulty. There are 2 cards inside, 1 is the power supply and the other video. The power cards are typically OK if you are getting a green power indicator. The video card is most likely the culprit and will need to be replaced. If you open the case, BEWARE the capacitors, make sure you drain them before poking around.

Monitor is blank


HI there,

Problem : no power
Action : * Make sure power button or switch is ON.
* Make sure A/C power cord is securely connected to the LCD display.
* :Plug another electrical device (like radio) into the power outlet to verify that the outlet is supplying proper voltage.

Problem : Power is ON but no screen image.
Action : * Make sure the video cable supplied with the LCD display is tightly secured to the video output port on the back of the computer. If the other end of the video cable is not attached permanently to the LCD display, tightly secure it to the LCD display.
* Adjust brightness and contrast.
* If you are using an Macintosh older than G3, you need a Machintosh adapter.

Hope this helps.
Have a goo day.

Display problam


  1. Make sure that the monitor is turned on and has power. Make sure that the display's power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
  2. Check that all video cable connections to the computer video port and to the monitor are properly connected.
  3. Examine the pins on the video cable connector to make sure they are not bent or damaged in any way.
  4. Connect a known working display (if you have an extra one available). If you see video after doing so, replace your old display.
  5. Unplug the video cable and then turn on the monitor, check any message is showing in monitor if its shown means ur monitor is ok or else their is a problem in monitor..
  6. turn off the system and check the ram..
  7. Reset the computer...

Monitor comes on but wont show picture


You should make sure the cable is plugged into the video port on the back of the tower. Also, if you have more than one video card, ie an "onboard card" and another card that was added later, try alternating one to the other and see if the other one works. You can identify video ports by finding the blue pentagonal plug. It also will be the only plug that your monitor cable fits into (that is describing a VGA cable, a white cable is a DVI cable and is even easier to identify.) You might also want to make sure the video card wasnt jostled out of place. The final solution could be you have developed some bad memory modules, or the memory was jostled out of its slot during the move.

Hello

To get the display on the TV . Please press Fn + F4 after connected TV to the Notebook using Svideo cable and the cable should be connected to the Svideo port of the Notebook.

Then please perform the following steps.

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and Battery.

If the issue persists then check whether the display is same on the external monitor.

I hope this will work.

Thanks

No display


Try swaping your memory with a known good stick of ram.
Are you sure your monitor is good? Video cables?
Try changing (if pci) slots when installing video card.
Other than these 3 things the only pretty sure thing is; sorry, mother board or cpu.
