Press and hold power button until it reset
you gonna hear a beepor go to next step:

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).

Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

Ressetig the ps3 on a new tv


Sounds like the Tv your using is faulty. Its could have hardware failure. You did say it PS3 was working on hdmi on a plasma. If your using the default hdmi cable that came with ps3 that also can be faulty. I have always had problems with the default hdmi so i bought a new one that was not SONY and it works beautifully. Another thing the black screen with green is a video cable or graphics issue.

Does this tv work if there is no ps3 connected? if so i recommend using the standard PS3 Component AV Cable. see if that will let you reset your ps3.

Cant hook up my ps3 to the tv ? tried all 3 input outlets and nothing tried hooking it up with a dvd player and still nothing ?


The ps3 has 2 output modes, hdmi and composite or component. For example if you started with composite and switched to hdmi the screen would show up black. The way to select the dif output is to press and hold the power button until you hear a second beep, this should put it on the proper output. Hope this helps and is the only thing I can think of if your tv is properly working.

When i turned on my ps3 today nothing displays on tv at all..........just a black screen


Check EVERY! cable, TV too, EVERYTHING.
Especially if it's HDMI, they come out EASILY.

Make sure TV is working properly with other things, it could be your TV.

If all cables are correct remove the game and whatnot and try different things.

Ps3 all black when i turn it on


ok a long shot but i did read somewere that if u hold down the power button for 10 seconds it detects or calibrates to the current TV that is connected its worth a try if nothing else, if this didnt help sorry but if it did enjoy :)

P.S. i dont know if the console needs to already be running to do this.
