I by mistake from the menu I pressed the hdmi botton. It went blank and I can't get a picture. What can I do?


If you are changing cables or cannot see an image on the screen, you may need to reset the video output to default settings. To reset the video output:
  1. While the PS3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the PS3 beeps a second time (approximately 5 seconds), then release it.
  2. The PS3 will power up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

I hooked my ps3 to the hdmi connection in the back,neither the system or the tv recognize the connection, i get a blank screen.I know the hdmi cable is good because I tested it.Any suggestions?


It could be that the PS3 is outputting a higher resolution than your TV can handle. Here is an excerpt from the PS3 manual:
If the video output settings do not match those required for the TV in use, the screen may go blank when the resolution is changed. The screen should, however, automatically go back to its original resolution after a while. If the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, turn off the system. Then touch the power button on the system front for at least five seconds to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

R - Restore: Restore default settings E - Environment: Change your environment, remove from media cabinet, try different media, try different equipment (TV, router, hotspot, etc.). P - Power Cycle: Power cycle by unplugging your networking equipment from wall for 2 minutes to reset. A - Access this Knowledge Center for useful articles to resolve issues. I - Install the latest System Software Update. R - Resolved: In most cases these steps can resolve your issue.
Adjust the video input on the TV to match the input connector that is being used to connect to the PS3™ system. Check that the cable is securely inserted. Try disconnecting the cable from the PS3™ system or TV and then reconnecting it. 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, and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

Plugged ps3 into tv but nothing is happening. av1 and 2 are not getting anything up on the screen?


1 I take it that you are using the right connecting cables which are compatible with PS3 system. 2 Check the cables are securely inserted. Try disconnecting the cable from PS3 system and TV and reconnecting them. 3 If the video output settings on the system do not match with those of the cable or TV there is no picture. In this case turn off the system. With only the system and TV connected touch the system's power button for more than 5 secs to turn the system on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolutions. 4 If the resolution of the video is not supported by the TV the screen will be blank. Then go to system's output settings on the screen, select "Custom" and then select all the resolutions supported by the TV

    No video/audio output


    problem with the main board then. You tried different cables, reset the ps3 and also tried different tv's to be sure it wasn't a TV issue.

    You did everything I would have done. Call sony if you decide to get it repaired by them. I think they charge $150 from the last time I checked.
