Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Tv screen is blank (black) but the console is on. I have left it powered off for 12 hours and still the same result - nothing. Any advice????
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!
