Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My PS3 will turn on but I get no video and no audio. Not even the startup screen comes up. I've never dropped it or damaged it in any way, it's been sitting unused for nearly 2 months. How do I make it work again??

    Thank you so much, I didn't do anything to the video settings, but holding the button down worked. Odd that I had to even do that, never have before. Maybe it just needed to be reset? Thanks again

Try to clean the HDMI socket with a dry brush. or check video settings, if dont know which is which, while the PS3 in stand by mode--> Hold Power button down for two beeps (while PS3 is off): Reset video to lowest settings.

If you've had this happen with two systems in a row, then it may not be the systems. First, try hooking up the PS3 directly to the TV, or another TV, and see if the issue still occurs. If it does, then something between the PS3 and the TV is causing your issue. Otherwise, call and get it replaced again, and hope the issue doesn't happen again.

THE PS3 SCREEN STAY BLACK EVEN WHEN THE CONSOLE IS ON


Hi, I can help you but i need you to turn everything on and at that blank black screen insert any Disc wait like 2 seconds and tell me if the top right hand corner if theres a small loading icon looks something like a water drop ripple that pops up. If so i had the same exact problem, they way i fix mine is I replaced my HDD (2.5 SATA drive) which is located on the left side of the ps3 when layed down horizontally if you didnt know already. I went ahead and bought a new 2.5 SATA drive and replaced it with my old one that was causing the problem, most likely is caused buy corrupted data files. HOpe this helps

Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.

No Audio


YOU HAVE TO GO INTO SETUP AND SPLIT THE AUDIO SIGNAL VIA OPTICAL OUTPUT. THE PS3 WILL DETECT THE CABLE AND GIVE YOU A PROMPT.

SYTEM SETTINGS ON THE STARTUP SCREEN AND BE SURE TO NOT HAVE A GAME IN THE MACHINE AT THE TIME.
