When I hooked up my PS3 to several TVs and tried to turn it on, the green light came on to show that it was running, but nothing would happen on the monitor. I tried both the HDMI and Red Yellow and White...


You can try resetting the display settings. What you need to do is plug in the input that you would like to use, whether it is the HDMI cord or your composite cable, and then press and hold the power button. It will beep once when it turns on, then continue to hold it and it will beep 3 times. Once it has beeped 3 times, you can release the power and it should start up with the input working just fine. If not I would suggest getting a hold of Sony to try their troubleshooting techniques and possibly getting your console repaired.

My ps3 goes to boot up an then shuts down beeps three times shows a blue light then a quick yellow light then goes to blinkin red light


You could try pressing the power button and holding it down. You will hear the first beep when you press it but hold it down until it beeps a second time it will take 5 to 10 seconds. This will reset the console and it may boot up. If this does not work you can go to www.us.playstation.com and check the user knowledgebase and/or support for a solution.

Was palying game console on a Tv with HDMI and optical set-up. #1Moved console to new tv and just used HDMI. I now have no audio output when game loads.This is on new TV.Game plays but after loading sound...


Try resetting your PS3 video/audio settings.

ress and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.

Why isn't my ps3 not working. I plugged it into my HDTV in my living room, then plugged it into my normal TV and now it's not working?


You need to reset the A/V out settings.
Have your PS3 in standby mode (solid red light). Press and hold the power button, you will hear one beep (power on), then you will hear another beep (reset). Release the button at this point and the video should reset and work on your standard TV using the red/white/yellow RCA cord.
Thank you!

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Ps3 when i turn it on has a yellow screen and wont load games


Try this:

Turn the console to stand by, you can do this by pressing the power button for 10 seconds.

When it is on stand by (a solid red light shows) hold the power button for 3 beeps, remove your fingers on the third beep which should be a double beep.

This should take you to reset your console. You should see 6 options. Select option 2 then the system will go blank. Repeat the above but this time select option 3.

Your PS3 should work after. Good Luck!

Ps3 turns off beeps twice but there is no yellow light only red!


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.
