My ps3 console signal isn't working but the sound works but there is no signal! not even a hdmi cable works help!
Try these tips to fix the so-called "black screen of death".
Tip 1: The main reason of HDMI black screen problem due to HDMI
cable may be damaged and not properly connected to the PS3 console. Please
follow below step to troubleshoot PS3 HDMI cables problem:
1) Restart your PlayStation 3.
2) Look for loose cables.
3) Try to unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them back
in. If you found out that your HDMI cable is damaged, borrow a
friends cable and try it. If your friends cable works fine, and the
black screen error disappears. Then you can buy a brand new HDMI cable
for a replacement.
Tip 2: Only try as last resort. There is a possibility you'll lose all data on your PS3's hard drive. If tip 1 didn't work, you will need to go a step deeper and reset your console. Most PS3 gamers are not aware that Sony
actually included a black screen of death troubleshooting method and
other HDMI problems in the PS3 manual, you can find it under
the troubleshooting section - topic "console reset".
If you do it correctly, the console reset fix will allow you to reset
back your PS3 to its default HDMI settings without impacting your gamer
profile, and other storage data on the hard drive.
You will need to perform the following steps:
1. Place your PS3 in stand-by mode.
2. Hold down the touch power button until a series of beeps are heard.
3. Listen for one long beep, followed by two shorter beeps.
4. Release the power button.
5. Follow the instructions on screen.
If it works you should be good to go.
