Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

When i connect the 3 coloured leads up, they don't seem to work, and there is no screen? But the ps3 itself still turns on, but it has a blank screen, i tried my ps2 cable but it didn't seem to work. There is nothing faulty with the t.v because it still works normally. If somebody could help as soon as possible it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

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 owrk then it is probably down to a faulty Graphics Processing Unit on the motherboard which is unfortunately terminal.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Firstly check the input of the tv is working by using a dvd player or other input so you can determine if the problem is the tv or the playstation. Also its worth checking the playstation against a tv that you know has working AV cables. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Our Ps3 has stopped communicating to our Sony T.V. The ps3 still works but it won't talk to the t.v. They are both Sony products and the HDMI seems to have stopped working. All other gaming console's


Hi.

You will probably have to make sure the video output settings are set up.

Make sure the PS3 is turned off and make sure that the HDMI lead is properly connected, also make sure you have selected the correct source on the TV.

Press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps. That will allow you to set up the desired video output.

If you still have a blank screen then I would change the HDMI cable as that could be faulty.

Good luck!!

If the screen is just black and the PS3 doesn't turn itself off, then it could just be that the video settings don't go out through the correct output. This will reset the video output:

Got to settings in the PS3 Crossbar and go to display settings. The first one should say video output settings, click on it. It should say your connection type is HDMI. Select component/D Terminal and hit change. The screen should go blank. During this time plug it in to your other t.v by the scart. It should say "Can you read this screen?" hit yes and there you go. To go back to HDMI do the same.

When i turn on ps3 all seems ok but when i click into game screen goes blank


Hello, It is normal for the screen to go blank when you hit the game icon. Because the that's the T.V adjusting to the HD-MI max settings. On the main menu, go to settings then video settings. Scroll down and you will see screen test, press that it will tell you what the maximum resolution for the tv you are using presently. You may need to change the resolution down and that will most likely fix this issue. It could also be the game disk, it it just this game that doesn't work? Or all? Also try replacing the HD-MI lead you are currently using, or at least try remove the lead and blow out and dust built up. If my suspicion's are correct, this will have resolved the issue. Any further questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for using fix ya.

My ps3 wont work with my hd/mi cable, i get a blank screen, but it does work with the rca jacks?


What you need to do is connect it from both the red/white/yellow cable and your HDMI. Go to your video input on your TV to where you can see the display. Go to settings - Display settings, and switch your input display from composite to HDMI. Your screen will go blank. Once blank, turn your TV to your HDMI input and when you see the picture, save settings and completely unplug the composite cable. You should be good to go.

If this helps, please give me a 4thumbs up!

Respectfully,

Problem connecting HDMI cable


Hey there I don't see why your playstation 3 should be doing that other than the console being defective. Sony doesn't have this problem that often and actually this is the first time i have heard of such problem. Try making sure the the HDMI cable is connected at both ends all the way in and also make sure your Samsung is a 1080P which i am pretty sure it is and finally if you have a friend or another 1080P HDTV in your house i would try and see if your ps3 will support the 1080P feature. If you still have the problem even when you use a different TV then its the ps3 that is malfunctioning otherwise it would be your Samsung. Let me know how that turns out alright.

Well did you try the 3 coloured plugs thats connected to the PS3 the problem with the PS3 is that the 3 coloured plug is abit heavy so it goes down you mite want to adjust the plug so that it doesn't make the screen turn black or w/e.
