Something may have happened with the PS3 settings. The PS3 defaults to "standard def" (the reason you may not see picture or hear sound). Try this: 1. Turn your PS3 off. 2. Put your finger on the power button, but LEAVE IT THERE. 3. You will hear the first *beep*, keep holding and you will hear two or three more. 4. Look at the TV. It should have a Standard Def image up saying it "see's a HDMI cable-do you want to use?" 5. Say yes 6. Game on!
Hope this solves your issue!

Disconnect it from your T.V and PS3. Make sure your T.V. is powered on.

Sounds like possibly it could be connection related between any AV/Cable ports. Worst case would be the capacitors of the motherboard leaking. It's possible to fix anything. Just make sure you have the knowledge and the right equipment.

Controller all 4 lights are flashing and no sounds and no picture


Excerpt from the PlayStation 3 Manual:

There is no picture on the TV screen.

*Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the system.

*There may be a problem with the AV cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PS3 system.

*If the video output settings on the system 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 system 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 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.

The wireless controller does not function.

*When using the wireless controller, you must pair it with the system and assign it a controller number. With the system turned on (power indicator on the system front is lit solid green), connect the system and the controller using the USB cable, and then press the PS button on the controller.

*Reset the wireless controller by pushing the reset button on the controller rear with a sharp-tipped object such as a pen.

Pairing your PlayStation 3 controller with another system will reset its frequency and you will need to pair it with your own again. If I recall, you cannot pair a controller through a USB hub, it must be a direct USB connection to the PlayStation 3.

Powers on but nothing happens


It happened to me too. When you plug in your av cables and are ready to play, follow these steps. With your PS3 off (Red light on), Press and hold the power button on your console. (Do not use the controller to turn it on.) Keep holding the button until you hear a second beep. (it takes about 2 to 3 seconds.) You will notice your screen flickers, then your PS3 will show up on the tv. All you did was reset the PS3 display settings. You can always go back to HDMI or AV cables. Have Fun.

When you start your PS3, press the power button and hold it for 5 seconds. It will beep and reset the machine to the default settings. What is happening is it is thinking you are still using the other cable. Reset to default and it will recognize the new cable. Hope that helps.
