Hi there, what you need to do is reset the video display. Try these following steps :-

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then again 5 seconds later. When you hear this second beep let go of the power button.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start up

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Try resetting the video output. Follow the steps below:


  1. Before changing cables, make sure the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 (the 0 side is pressed down).

  2. Unplug the power cord of the PLAYSTATION 3 and television (or display) from the wall socket.

  3. Make sure the AVI cable is connected to the [AVI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.

  4. Connect the other end of the AVI cable into the [AVI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.

  5. Plug the PLAYSTATION 3 and television (or display) back in to the wall socket.

  6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 back on (the line on the power button is now pressed).

  7. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.

  8. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video


This happened to me a few years back so I apologize if it's not 100% accurate. If you can get it to work on another TV, go ahead and connect it to that, and go in to the settings to select the video input. If it's connected through an HDMI cable, then it will probably be set to HDMI. Change the input here to whatever cable you used in the living room. You will have to power it off at this stage, but when you connect to the other TV it should work.

Display not working


how down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.

You need to reset your video settings when you move to a regular TV. Just hold down the power button, it will beep twice and go back to stand by mode. They boot up again and your video setting should be back to normal ( for standard TV).
