Could possibly be that it is not connected up correctly, or your playstation has died. If you have access to another playstation, hook it up to your cables as they are hooked up. If the screen works. Your playstation has died.

If not, and you have the same issues, try their cables, and if that doesn't work. You have it plugged in incorrectly.

The console switches on but there is no picture or sound on the tv

First thing to check is that the TV is on the right channel and everything is connected properly... after that I'd check the cable to make sure that's not causing it. If you have a spare or a friend nearby who you can borrow one from (or take it over to theirs) and see if it still doesn't display anything.

My playstation wont transmit a picture to my television

Make sure everything is connected correctly. Then, turn on the PS3 from putting your finger on the "power button" but HOLD IT DOWN. After a few seconds it will beep at you a few times. Check the TV. If the video OUT settings got messed up somehow, it should now display picture on whatever cables you are using "HDMI" or "Composite" . Hope this helps!

Everything is connected and im still not getting any picture or sound on my tv.

Hi, you might have to scan for the correct channel on your tv, try one of the AV channels such as AV2 or AV3.

Hope this helped.

I have sound but no picture.

Have you tried replacing the cable that connects the PS2 to your TV? Might be something wrong with the video portion of the connector.

No display when loading game

I have had advice directly from SCE that updates should be done from a flash Drive and not directly from the internet connection on the system, as its quicker and more stable.
I have just had my unit crash on me, by updating first the PSStore update patch, which caused the original issue, then an update for RSV2 pretty much finished it off.

Get the game right in the first place!!!??
