Dear,
you may try to use the PS3 recovery options.
The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this:

  1. Make sure the PS3 is turned off
  2. Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off.
  3. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try)
  4. It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable,
  5. Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu.
Please rate my solution ++++ if it was helpful, or feel free to ask for more information. Thank you

I have a ps3 and the picture won't. Show up and if


It sounds like you may have a resolution conflict occuring, to see if that is whats happening, hold the power button in for 15-30 seconds. While your doing this you will hear the standard beep of the console turning on, keep holding down the power button for around 15-30 seconds or until you hear another series of beeps. Then you will want to let go of the button and let the PS3 go through its process of reseting your video settings.
If this it not the issue I recommend calling Sony.

My ps3 won't show on tv but it show that it's playing


Are you saying that it has sound but no video?

Plug only the video plug (yellow) to the TV. Turn on the backswitch. When the red light in front is on, put your finger on the on/off button in front AND KEEP IT THERE. You will hear some beeps; don't worry about that. Keep your finger on the button until the front power light goes red again. This resets the PS3 video settings. Turn the PS3 on and the TV should pick up the signal.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

Yes the display settings need to be reset since he had HDTV and you don't. I do this by simply having the PS off then press power button and hold it for 5 seconds.
