Please try the following to reset the display settings back to standard.

Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Wait for the PS3 display to be reset

Hope this helps

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it


You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard. 1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video) 2. Select [ Video Output Settings ] 3. Select HDMI 4. Select Resolution 5. Select Screen Size 6. Save the settings 7. Reboot the console. This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though. Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank GATpro Repairs

My ps3 will not turn on via controller and when you turn on at console it brings nothing up on screen but console sounds like its working


have you tried rebooting to default?
are you using the hdmi connection?
if your using the hdmi, it is possible that it forgot
to reset that, shut down,turn off the power switch in back
a few secs later(15)place and hold thumb on power sensor in front
and turn on rear power while holding the front
this will reset the ps3 to factory settings
this means it will go back to the lower quality video connection and you will need to switch it back to hdmi
i've done this to mine once when i lost video
hopefully it is all that's wrong

Ps3 turns on for a few seconds bleeps then turns back off and the red light flashes any ideas


Red light on the PlayStation three can mean lots of things it could mean a hardware failure an overheating problem or software problem
if its over heating try moving the ps3 away from cramp areas and try to keep the vent from being covered if its a hard drive problem or it might be corrupted my other recommendation is and that's if you don't want to take it to sony is a hard reset warning doing a hard reset all data will be lost and the ps3 will be returned to factor defaults please not iv warned you if you feel iffy about it don't do it

Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
but this all I can think of the might solve your problem

try connecting A/V rca cable first. go to ur diplay settings and then to video output settings in it select av multi. don't use HDMI settings let it automatically ask u when u plug in hdmi cable. Then switch to HDMI cable. I had a problem like this before with a ps3 that i had bought used. hdmi was set up and it took forever to set it up with rca cords. took many times power on and offs and unplugging video cords for it to reset. . not sure. Now when u plug in your hdmi on any tv it should automatically set up. and you have settings for a/v as backup. the other thing is it could be the just the port or cable.

Cant get hdmi for ps3 to work on my jvc hd 52g887


Had same problem with Panasonic PT60LC14 tv when connecting by HDMI cord to my PS3 and a blue ray disc was playing. First, read your tv manual to see what video inputs it supports . Then read the PS3 online manual (section on "video output settings").

For me I found out that my tv only supported 1080i (along with 480i/p, 780p) and the ps3 manual says blue ray outputs 1080p, so my blue ray discs will not play on my tv according to the PS3 manual. PS3 manual says to restart the ps3 (power off, then power on and HOLD for 5 seconds) - then the standard video output settings should be reset. Hopefully the ps3 menu will pop up at least. I haven't tried this yet but if it doesn't work, i'll may try to reset PS3 video out settings manually first using another tv that works with it ..

Try this:

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).

Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
