Please try the 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. If this does not solve your problem then you need to phone Sonay. As it is under a year old they should replace it for you

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Maybe you did set the PS3 to the wrong video mode, hold the power button till you hear 2 blips, this wil set the ps3 to recovery mode and you'll be able to set up the video mode and sound output, else try another cable, you also want to try your ps3 on another tv.

If this does'nt solve the problem try contacting Sony.

Just did the most recent update on my ps3 and now all I have is a black screen. I have restarted several times and the main screen will momentarily flash but then goes to black.


This may work. When the system is off press and hold the power button you will hear a beep keep holding you hear another beep then release the power button. That will reset the video settings which should return your picture ..

If not call 800-345-SONY

They may have other steps to correct the problem

Cant get a picture with blu ray disc


Switch ps3 off to stand by then hold the on touch pad on console and keep your finger on untill u hear 3 beeps

a screen SHOULD appear asking with HDMI was detected Do you want to scan?

Click yes and it should scan your TV's HD and it shold work.

Sometimes the screen goes at random but no body knows why that is.

hope this works :D

Ps3 reset


turn the PS3 off. hold the power button for at least 5 seconds or until you hear another beep.
This should reset all your ps3's settings.  If you have an HDMI connection, wait for a couple of seconds so that the PS3 recognizes and negotiates the right video output for your TV.

No Picture on PS3


If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, touch the system's power button for more than 5 -10 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
