Please try this following solution :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

Bought my ps3 when it came out been really good till naw . it will switch on disc will go in everything sounds like it works but i get no picture tried a new scart lead and still nothing.


  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 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 PLAYSTATION®3 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.
  • This is from playstations website Hope this helps.

    This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition. If this does not owrk then it is probably down to a faulty Graphics Processing Unit on the motherboard which is unfortunately terminal.

    "no signal" showing on tv screen


    1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
    2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
    3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

    Can no longer see output on TV but PS3 is on


    • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION computer entertainment system. If you switched to the analog cable you need to change the TV from HDMI input to the AV input.

    • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION. If you use a different type of connection make sure to change the channel.

    • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 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 PLAYSTATION®3 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.

    When i hook up the ps3 it turns on but nothing comes up on the tv


    the only times this has happened with me is when the lead was not pushed in all the way at the back of the console. Or the tv was not set to the correct channel or the lead going into the tv was not sitting correctly. Try all of these three things to see if it helps. If not try pressing the power button on your ps3 until you hear 3 beeps to reset the display.

    No picture or sound


    Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.

    1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 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 system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
    2. Make sure the TV is on the correct seting. i.e. Video 1, Video 2, etc.

    3. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

    I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
