Make sure you have set your tv to the right channel or video mode.

Examples

  • HDMI televisions usually have several HDMI ports and can be accessed via HDMI-1, HDMI-2, and so on.
  • Regular AV usually has a game channel/video mode you can access from the menu or the button itself on your remote.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

MY PS3 IS PLUGGED IN PROPERLY BUT HAS NO PICTURE OR SOUND???? ive tried over 3 tvs and multiple outlets,sony you just keep letting me down


try connecting it with a different av cable or hdmi cable and see what happens. i wouldn't say it is a coincidence that all 3 tvs are not compatible but also ensure that they are high grade tvs that would probably support the graphics of the ps3. if it still doesnt work, try using your av cable for a ps3 system you know is working with a particular tv and see if it works. if it does, then you know you have to return the console to where it was bought or take it for repairs and let them check it out

has nothing to do with your tv or ps3 or xbox ive had this problem and fixed it...you are simply running to many things in the house or on that specific circut at once and the ps3 and tv are not getting enough juice.

Green light but no picture or sound.


First thing you wanna try is a manual video reset.

It's probably a good idea to hook up the regular av cables as well.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Let me know what happens.

Powers on but nothing happens


It happened to me too. When you plug in your av cables and are ready to play, follow these steps. With your PS3 off (Red light on), Press and hold the power button on your console. (Do not use the controller to turn it on.) Keep holding the button until you hear a second beep. (it takes about 2 to 3 seconds.) You will notice your screen flickers, then your PS3 will show up on the tv. All you did was reset the PS3 display settings. You can always go back to HDMI or AV cables. Have Fun.

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.

No sound or picture


hi i think it's the heat transfer compound (fan) in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety percaution.

you ring microsoft, say you have 3 red lights (which you obviously dont have) and they take some details and you send it off and they send you a new one. Same thing happened to me, and thats what i'm doing.

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).
