It might be having trouble connecting to the TV so you may want to replace the HDMI cable so that it can play properly

I changed my HDMI cables to get my PS3 to play

You need to set your HDMI, resolution down, on PS3 FIRST, using composite, or component hookup, to the TV FIRST, Turn OFF, but DO NOT select HDMI, leave it on, Composite, or Component, when finished setup the TV, the turn it off, leave off, Then connect up PS3, power on, NOW turn on the TV, select HDMI, Change PS3 to HDIM, now it should appear. Sometimes you have to "Reset" the TV, by tuning it on & off.

No singal to tv whith av cable we tryed two cables but nothing and we also tryed difrent tvs

Do you get anything via HDMi?

Hook back up to your TV again, turn TV on and turn PS3 on, once you hear your PS3 make a beep, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and it will then beep again, at this point take your finger off the button.

this resets the PS3 resolution and output settings, so if it was just a resolution error this will fix it and you should then eventually get a signal on screen.

But after doing this and you still get nothing then it's time to look at it being an about problem with your unit relating to the motherboard.

Hope this has helped.

When i turn on my ps3 nothing appears on my television!!!

ok, put your ps3 in standby mode(solid red light) then hold the power button. Just keep holding it until the picture shows up, asking you if you want to set in to optimal video settings, in which you say yes. if it turns of before saying this, try again and again. if after a few tries it doesn't work, check the cables in the back of the system and tv to make sure they're plugged in fully. then check to make sure your tv is on the right video setting (video 1, 2, 3, digital output, etc.)
