    I've had a PS3 for a year and a half. Last night I connected it through an HD switcher box and stopped getting a picture. I disconnected the switcher box and connected the PS3 directly to the TV and still no picture. I also connected the PS3 (with the same HD cord) to a second
    TV and it worked just fine. Still cannot get a picture on my main TV, but sound is intact. HELP!!!

Okay, turn your PS3 off.

Now turn it on with the power button (NOT the sixaxis)

And hold the power button down until it beeps twice.

That should reset your video settings

Bluray movie playes sound but no picture, HDCP problem?

In order to provide the proper solution to this, I need to know how this unit is connected to the TV. Also, when using the PS3 in game mode, do you get both picture and sound? What is the make and model of the TV involved here?

There are a number of reasons for the loss of picture. I will assume that you have selected the correct video input and video type. But for confirmation, please provide those details as well. Once you update this, I will try to give you an explanation and potential solutions.

My xbox 360 has sound but no picture. I tried the overheating with a towel and it worked for about 10 minutes. Now I have sound but no picture again.

It needs to be fixed, the right way.

If it's still under warranty, microsoft.

If not most shops and dudes on craigslist do it for $40.

Or you can go diy for about $10-15

No Picture on TV

Try replacing the A/V cable. It sounds like that the cable that is for the video is broken. I would replace that first.
