Since I don't know if this has worked for you before I can only give you advice. I'll do my very best to help you in whatever way I can.

If it's a new system I need to know how you have it hooked up. I'll start by having you troubleshoot some things:

If you want it hooked up through HDMI connection you'll need to hook up both the composite (Red White & Yellow) cord that came with it; along with the HDMI cord.

Turn your console on and set your TV input to whichever input the composite cable is hooked into.

Assuming you have picture:

Go to your settings and select Display Options. At the next menu, you'll want to switch it from composite to HDMI. Your screen will go blank.

Set your TV to whichever HDMI input you have it hooked to and you should see a display. Confirm if necessary.

If you still have no picutre:

What I would initially do then is make sure the system is off, turn your TV input to the correct video settings for the composite, and when you turn it on, hold your finger on the power button for a few seconds after it's on to set the default picture display.

You should have a picture now. If not, it could be your TV. Try these same steps on another TV.

Please let us know if you're having further issues & Good Luck!

Respectfully,

Don

I just get a blank screen with no sound or anything when i turn it on


I once had this issue, the solution was hard to find(five hours), but fairly simple. (This works for HDMI cable set up, but I'm not sure concerning AV)
Note: Yes, the solution sounds ridiculous, but for this issue, it works.

1. Unhook your PS3 from the current TV/Computer screen you have it hooked up to.

2. Hook it up to a different TV/Computer screen that you have or a friend may have.

3. Power on the PS3 and it should have a screen and everything and work just fine.

4. Hook it back to your original TV/Computer screen and power on the PS3 and it should work fine there again aswell.

Hi, Ive never had a problem with my playstation 3 before but yesterday whenever I turn it on and put the tv on, the playstation home part doesnt come up. I just have a black blank screen. I tried it on...


Hi First thing to try is to turn the console off, unplug it, wait 5 minutes, plug it back in and try again. If that doesn't help then turn it off again, preferably from the switch on the back, then turn the power back on, then press and hold the power button in the front until you hear 2 beeps, when the 2nd beep comes, let go, if you don't have picture, turn it off and then turn it back on, if you still don't have picture, try different cables, and outputs on the console. If your console still remains blank, the last thing to do is a factory reset. You will lose your saved games etc, this is the last step to do before you send it off to sony for repair / exchange. Again note that you MAY will lose your settings and game saves. Power off the console with the power switch in the back and power back on. Hold power button on the front until you hear 3 beeps You may need to connect with AV cables instead of HDMI then go through the initial setup -- if your picture comes back at this point, you may be able to return to using the console normally. If you are not able to use the console normally then continue to do a full format via system > format, it will take around 3-4 hours. after the format is complete your console is restored to factory defaults, it should work normally if it does not, then you have a hardware fault that requires service. If your console is still blank, you most likely have a hardware fault that requires service, sony will repair / replace the console for 150USD in USA, if you are another location please contact your local sony.

My playstation screen goes blank when i put a blue ray disk in


Excerpt from the PlayStation 3 Manual:

There is no picture on the TV screen.

*If the resolution of the video content is not supported by the TV in use, when the video is played the screen may go blank. If this happens, go to the screen for selecting the resolution in the system's video output settings, select "Custom" and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

Playstation 3 hook up


If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If that does not help try contacting sony at
