This is sometimes caused by what is known as the "High Definition Handshake". When your PS3 is connected via PS3 it tried to detect the optimal settings for your TV. If it cannot perform the handshake you get the symptoms that you are describing.

When the screen is going on and off, unplug the HDMI cable and plug it back in to perform the handshake again. If this does not work try resetting the display settings by turning the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on). Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it and then again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep.

This will reinitialize the display and hopefully sort your problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I have a ps4, when I turn it on the blue light will come on and then it'll go to the white one and there is no image on the t.v. even the homepage on the ps4 won't even show. Anyone know why?


1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

My coby lcd tv won't work for my ps3 what wires would I need to make it work


You will need an HDMI cable. Please follow the below instructions.

Instructions

  1. Before you begin installation:
    • Turn OFF the PS3TM system using the [MAIN POWER] switch (in the back)
    • Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet
    • Turn OFF and unplug the TV
  2. Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PS3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor. ps3_8_hdmiconnecttv.gif
  3. Plug in the AC power cord by connecting one end of the AC power cord into the [AC IN] port on the back of the PS3 system and the other end into an electrical outlet. ps3_11_connectacpower.gif
  4. Press the [MAIN POWER] switch on the rear of the system. A red light should appear on the front of the system indicating power is available.
  5. Turn on the PS3 by pressing the touch-sensitive [On/Off button] on the system front. The red light will turn green, indicating the PS3 is now turned on.
    Note: The blue light will also appear on the front of the system if you have a disc inserted.
  6. Plug in the TV and turn the power on. The PS3 should detect the HDMI display device automatically. When prompted, "Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton. (You may need to press the PS button on the center of the SIXAXISTM controller to enable the controller first).
  7. The next screen will ask, "Do you want to automatically switch to the optimal setting?" Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton.
  8. On the next screen, the PS3 will display the maximum resolution capable on the display (i.e., 1080p). The screen will display, "Do you accept the setting?" You will have 30 seconds to confirm your answer.2 Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton to save your settings. You have now completed the HDMI installation.

Hd tv as no hdmi plug


There are PS3-components cables available out there (the Red/Green/Blue one) you can use to connect your PS3 to your TV and still get HDTV on your TV system. You should be able to get it where you bought your Playstation. Got one for 39.99$ CAN

Connecting PS3 to HD TV without HDMI input


Component video input. Red, Green, and Blue. Your system should have come with it, but I don't know, I'm a 360 user.
