Plugged ps3 into tv but nothing is happening. av1 and 2 are not getting anything up on the screen?


1 I take it that you are using the right connecting cables which are compatible with PS3 system. 2 Check the cables are securely inserted. Try disconnecting the cable from PS3 system and TV and reconnecting them. 3 If the video output settings on the system do not match with those of the cable or TV there is no picture. In this case turn off the system. With only the system and TV connected touch the system's power button for more than 5 secs to turn the system on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolutions. 4 If the resolution of the video is not supported by the TV the screen will be blank. Then go to system's output settings on the screen, select "Custom" and then select all the resolutions supported by the TV

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

It POWERS ON BUT HAS NO PICTURE,


Okay, I am now going through all the unsolved problems for which previously I had the same problems and now posting our solution. First, if you have no pic due to swiching of the cables (ie, cable av, hdmi) WHENEVER you switch your cable output, the ps3 also switches it's output. Make sure when there is no picture due to this problem to turn off the game console, then turn on, hold down the power button for approx. 5 SECs, there will be a BEEP. Let go of power button, the ps3 has then switched back to the output it is currently plugged in and will work. (ALSO sometimes you have to have ONLY the ps3 and tv hooked up) Hope this helped. I know how stressful this can be!
