Turn on ps3 i get no picture or sound then i cant turn it off i have to unplug it whats wrong with it?


  • Check your HDMI Cable

    HDMI is available in several versions. The PS3 is compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type A" and "Type B" connectors. The PS3 uses the 19-pin Type A connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
    The HDMI cable is not included with the PS3.

  • Cable adaptors (i.e., HDMI to DVI converters)

    If you are using an adaptor (i.e., HDMI to DVI converter), try bypassing this adaptor and connecting the HDMI cable directly into the display.


  • Check the adaptorTry an alternate cable

  • Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HDMI setup and/or equipment.


  • Some older HDTVs may have issues with the copy protection protocols (HDCP) causing the handshake not being communicated between the TV and the PS3. Try resetting the TV by turning the TV and PS3 off, then unplug the TV power cord from the outlet and plug it back in. Then turn your TV and PS3 back on and see if the picture appears.

  • Try using a different the HDMI Cable on the PS3.Make sure the HDMI Cable is free of any cuts, frays or other visible damage.
  • Try installing the PS3 to another TV or display (i.e., monitor).
  • Try using the HDMI Cable with a different PS3 system.

My ps3 powers with green light on but no picture


1. Make sure the cables are hooked up firmly and correctly. 2. If you have another set of cables available try swapping the cables. 3. Perform a "hard reset on the console"
  • Flip the power switch to on in the back
  • Press and hold the power button for about 30-45 seconds
  • The PS3 will beep several times.
  • Flip the power switch off, wait a few seconds and power back on.
  • This will reset the video output to factory settings.
4. Still no video? One of the connections to the graphics chip has been damaged (usually cold solder joint). The PS3 console will need to be professionally repaired.
If you are out of warranty and don't want to spend $150+ to have Sony try to fix, the company I work for: GATpro Repairs can fix the issue. We offer flat rates and even pay for the return shipping!
Good Luck! Let me know if you have any further questions.

My ps3 powers up, but I get no picture or sound.


Put your PS3 in standby mode (hold the power button until the light turns red) then release, and hold the power button again for about 10 seconds, or until the light beeps a second time. When the PS3 restarts, it should display on whatever it finds plugged in first.

No picture displayed on screen


OK, I am assuming you are using the same TV, PS3, cables etc that you were using before you went on vacation. Turn off the PS3...we are going to reset the video display. make sure everything is connected properly before we start. now here we "kinda" gonna turn it on, except you will hold your finger on the touch sensative power button until it beeps several times in a row with about a half second between beeps. It should reset the PS3 and the resolution.

If you get nothing on the screen after trying this several times, you should gather up 150 bucks and call sony for hardware repair.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


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!

I can't be exactly sure without more information, but it sounds like you ps3 is outputting from another port. My ps3 originally was outputting from the component/composite cable port so in order to use the hdmi output I had to do a soft reset. That makes the ps3 sense what cable is plugged into it and automatically output through that port instead of using whatever is the saved setting.

With your ps3 turned on hold down the power button for a few second until it beeps and flashes 3 times (should be about 5 seconds). You might have to try it a few times to get it to work, but you should get picture and be able to adjust the settings on the ps3.

Picture goes to a lime green fuzz and then no piture or sound!


which AV connection are you using? HDMI or the cable supplied with the PS3, If using HDMI, you have to set the PS3 visual settings to HDMI, to do this, use the cable supplied with the PS3, and have the HDMI cable plugged in. Then while using the cables supplied with the PS3, switch the settings over to HDMI, then change the TV's input selector to your HDMI and confirm the settings changes. Hope it helps take care

PS3 hdmi cable


Hold the power button for 5 seconds or more, that will reset to regular viewing ratio. From there you can adjust to whatever you are using. I had the same problem.
