Hello,

Is the PS3 using the genuine PS3 AC adapter? Also, if you have a cable connected to your TV, and it is attached via the splitter, try to remove it temporarily and test if it does the same thing? Most likely, something is causing interference to your PS3 that is why it is behaving like that.

Let me know about the results. If it does not make any difference, it could be a much more serious problem like hardware failure.

I have the older PS3 and the games picture are starting to get distorted.


I also have a "fat" PS3. Unfortunately, it seems that many of these units are starting to kick the bucket.

The most you can hope for is the distorted picture being due to bad cable connection (which I would check) or overheating. In the case of overheating, its possible you can open the ocnsole and apply some thermal past to the heatsinks, but I wouldn't try this unless you are comfortable with such procedures.

When using my ps3 I have audio and no picture or picture and no audio when playing games and dvd's. This problem just happened recently, it worked before.


HI, you will have to do a troubleshooting process.

You connections might be faulty,
wrong connection setting,
Wrong resolution setting,
and other related problems.

Some users are reporting that although they are getting images on their TV, the content is distorted when playing DVDs or Blue Ray Discs. The most common cause of this occurs when you hook your PS3 to your TV through a VCR. Some types of copy protection built into older VCR units may cause the distortion. If this happens, just plug your PS3 directly into your TV and by-pass any other components.

Fortunately, most no-picture issues with the PS3 fall into one of the above quick-to-fix situations. If you still can't get a picture on your TV with your PS3 connected, you might want to check the material that came along with your console and look for the customer service number. Hopefully, your warranty will cover any work that might need to be done or provide for a replacement unit.

hope that helps.

need any assistance, you can pass your comments.

Take care

50' philips plasma tv has sound but picture is distorted


I sugest you to change the video resolution settings on the PS-3 to see if TV sets to any one resolution...if you have any other video out (analog from PS3)...connect the out to TV and check video at different resolutions. If PS3 has Deep Color settings turn it OFF.

When you put in a game the sounded is distorted


If the sound problem is only on one game then its a problem with the game. If its happening on all games then try the system on another TV, if the sound problem stops then its a problem with the original tv, if it still crackles then its a problem with the main board inside of the ps3.

I was playing a game (PS3) and I heard a slight "pop" from the tv


User can't really fix this at all. Even a regular TV shop would have problem replacing individual components. What you can try to do is maybe order the board that has the burnt components, and raplace it yourself.

Playstation 3 distorted picture when turned on


I had the same problem (see above) and was able to fix it. The solution my be an S-video plug. I went to Wal-Mart and picked up a universal component S-A/V cable ("universal" in that you can use it for PS2, PS3, XBOX 360, Elite & Wii consoles).

At first, I used only the audio and video plugs and the picture still appeared distorted. Then I plugged the S-cable in (to the TV) and the picture displayed crystal clear!

Keep in mind, I never had to use an S-cable with my PS3 before. It worked fine without it from day one. I also can't blame the firmware update because I did the firware update AFTER I noticed the distorted picture. Previous to that, I had done every other firmware update with no problems. I know it's not the TV because I tried on four different televions and the result was the same -- so I'm left scratching my head, but at least the picture is clear.

For those wondering, the cables I bought were Phillips S-AV cable. It comes in a white box and is 8 feet long. The price was about $20. Sony offeres component A/V cables for more than double the cost, but chances are, those cables would have been useless to me since they did not include an S-video plug.

PS3 and & DVD's


If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • 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.
If the DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) cannot be played, or the picture is distorted: Back to top
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION®3 system format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
  • If the PLAYSTATION®3 is connected to a VCR or a combination TV/VCR unit, copy protection encoding on some DVDs and BDs may cause image distortion, or may cause the image to become lighter or darker. In such cases, connect the system to the TV directly.
  • If the DVD or BD does not match the region code set in the PLAYSTATION®3, it cannot be played.
  • Some DVDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to temporarily increase the viewer age restriction level.
  • Some BDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to change the parental control level.
  • The BD may be disc-locked. Enter the password that was set when the disc was created.
