Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Video and Audio wont work

I have had my PS3 for a little over a year and have had no problems with it. It worked on Sunday afternoon at my house but when I brought it back to my school, it wouldn't work that night. It turns on, the fan runs, I can hear it loading the game but there is no video or sound. At first I thought it was just the cords and I had to get new ones but then I tried my cords on someone else PS3 and it worked fine. Can anybody help as to why I am having this problem?

When turning on the system, just hold down the power button for FIVE seconds. It should beep at you and then restart over whatever cables you've hooked it up with.

The Problem might be that on the Back of the Ps3 the Red yellow and white plug is loose i have this problem but you have to adjust it once in awhile and try to plug it in the back of the TV or the front depends really.

I took my PS3 to a friends and we used an HDMI cable to hook it to his tv and when he brought it back to my house and now it wont work, i use the red ywllow and white audio/video plugs. why wont my...


hey, when you used the HDMI cable at your friends place, the PS3 display got set to 1080p. to bring it back to standard definition (red, white, yellow wire), follow these steps.

turn off you TV and PS3

turn on your TV

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.

Now you should be able to see your PS3 menu on the TV.

Happy to help :)

Hi. I Was playing on my ps3 yesterday afternoon and i turned it off to have tea. while i was having tea my little sister that is 2 years old started playing with the buttons on the ps3 console. I told her...


It sounds like the laser is dirty, just buy a laser cleaning kit from your local I.T. store, or from a music store, use it in your playstation and then try again.
hope this helps! :D

MY PS3 CONTROLLER WILL NOT TURN ON!!??


Batteries dead?
If not, take a pin or something thin and on the back of the controller there is a reset button in an indented hole. Hold it down for 5-10 seconds while the PS3 is on and controller is plugged in...see if that helps.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


It's the Blu-Ray Drive. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

Audio


Try if the Bose system have some setting need to be adjust or if your machine is configure properly on the audio section.Is a little bit hard to explain since is a step by step operation but check this two.Audio section on your ps3 and audio setting on BOSE System.Usually if the Bose Allow Direct setting use it.I had the same problem with a Onkyo receiver.Technology suppose to make your life easy but sometimes is complicate to understand.
