The console powers up but has no sound and displays no picture.

Unplug your HDMI or RCA jack from the PS3 hold down the power for 15 sec until it turns on then replug your cables... u don't see a screen from there... then just do a restart and everything should be great!

When i turn on my ps3, there's no picture. I changed the cables and still no pic. it blinked on for a second and then nothing.

With the ps3 off and connected to the tv hold the power button down, keep it held down until you hear a couple strange beeps and it fully powers back off. That will reset the video output settings and if you switched televisions should enable you to see some picture, then go to display settings and configure it for the tv you are using specifically (480i/P,720P,1080i/P,etc)

On ps3, when switched on, says hard drive corrupted, will restore. after a while trying to restore, same thing comes up again.

  • Turn off the PS3 console, if it isn't already.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Connect your controller to the console with the USB cable when prompted to do so.Turn on the controller. You will now have access to the PS3 recovery menu.Select option three which states "Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files." This option will identify and correct and corrupt files. Your PS3 should now be fixed. If this option doesn't fix your problems, you'll want to do a complete system restore and follow the next step.Turn off the PS3 console by holding down the power button.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Select option 5 which states "Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch." Be aware that performing a complete system restore will cause all data on the hard drive to be lost. This option restores the PS3 back to its original factory condition.

    No picture ps3 on sony bavia got it used everything seams to be working just no pic with hdmi hooked up i have no man. thanks

    If you have this error then it can normally be fixed with the software meaning that it is not a hardware problem and you might not need to send it off to get it fixed.

    To do this you should use the recommended guide that will show you how to fix it in under an hour or of course you can send it in.

    It happens sometimes as the data becomes corrupted.
