Doesnt show up on the television. It does turn on. turned playstation on and off, tried different connections, still nothing

It is likely that the problem is your AV cable. This cable has one plug that connects to your Playstation 3 and a red plug, a white plug, and a yellow plug that connects to your television. Follow these steps to get your PS3 up and running again
  1. Unplug your AV cable from your PS3 and T.V.
  2. Plug in your AV cable to your PS3 and T.V.
When plugging your AV cable back into the T.V. make sure that the red plug is in the red socket, the yellow plug is in the yellow socket and the white plug is in the white socket.
If problems persist try using a different AV cable.

I plugged my playstation 3 into my friends tv and it wont show up on the screen, what do i do

  • Make sure the system is off.
  • Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds - until you hear the second beep.
  • That's it, your video settings are reset and you should be able to choose your input and configure it from there.

    I have a 60gb ps3 and i wont show anything

    I can think of 2 possibilities first the a/v cable or ports on your tv are bad or, if you are using s-video you may need to plug in or unplug the standard yellow rca along with s-video, some tv's are picky.
