I think you may be holding the power button down for too long. Instead of holding it down for 10 seconds only hold it down until you hear a second beep (it will beep once as soon as you press it). The console should stay on after the second beep and the display should initialise.

Try this method with both HDMI and AV lead (red white and yellow lead)

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

When we plug in the ps3 it turns on but nothing shows up on the tv. we tried another ps3 on the same cords and had no problems


Hi momofconsane

Turn off your PS3. Now press and HOLD the 'On' button on the PS3 itself (not on the controller). It will beep and reset the connection type. I believe it will use HDMI if available, if not then it'll switch to AV.Hope this helps cheers nikki

Ps3 plays audio but does not show image on tv


Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.

But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.

PS3 Problem... I turned on my ps3 but nothing shows up on the television screen and controls wont even detect... PS3 shows that it is receiving power because the power light on ps3 is green. Can someone...


Turn the power off on the switch on the back, and then back on again. Hold down the power button, keep on holding it down after the first beep, but let go once another couple of beeps sound. It should then take at max a minute but then it should show a screen set up section.
