Hi,troubleshoot your cables for connection and after that you can try these too.


You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

When I connect the PS3 to my Toshiba Tv, it is not showing a picture or sound, I don't know what I am doing wrong...


Have you plugged the hdmi cable in to both the TV and the PS3? or... Have you plugged the composite cables into the PS3 and TV, if so. Turn off the console, now hold the power button until you see the screen pop up, It most likely just needs to be reset!

My ps3 wont show picture on any tv, even tried the old white, red and yellow cord and still nothing, any ideas on whats wrong with it?


You have said you have tried the standard AV cable but have you reset the PS3 back to standard definition? Do this by holding the power button down for 5 seconds. It will revert to standard definition after that.

Hope this helps

My ps3 will turn on but wont show a picture on the tv or give sound


Reset the video settings by turning on the ps with only the power cable plugged in, when turning on continue to hold the power button until you hear a second set of beeps then turn off the console.
Boot up the ps and plug in your av/hdmi cable and you should have picture and sound.
