I can't find the reset butonon my playstation 3 please. help.

PS3 does not have a reset button as far as I know. Although the PS3 controller does have the reset button on the underside. It's there if your controller lost its connection to the PS3.

If you want to change from HDMI to Scart you need to press and hold the power button while it's off, than a blue light will turn on on your ps3 and you can stop holding.

How do you reset your PS3?

You can reset the Sony PlayStation 3 to troubleshoot the gaming system or restart after a hard drive freeze. Resetting the PS3 will restore the PS3's settings to to the default factory settings. Consider backing up any data or custom settings before doing a system reset for the PS3 as they might be erased.


  • urn off the PS3 by flipping the power switch on the back of the system.

  • 2

    Turn the power switch back to the "on" position.

  • 3

    Hold the power button while the PS3 is powering up until you hear three beeps. These signal that the PS3 has received the manual system reset command.

  • 4

    Prompt through the initial setup menu to continue resetting the PS3.

  • 5

    Select "Format" from the system menu to format and finish a complete system reset for the PS3.

    I have audio but no video. used mainly for blu-ray playback but games have been played on the system.

    Have you recently plugged the ps3 into another TV?

    Try resetting the ps3 back to default.

    1. Hold down the power button the ps3 system to turn it on and keep holding the button after the ps3 comes on
    2. You should then hear another beep and the ps3 will reset both the audio and the video to default settings.

    Hope this helps :)

    This is what happen my regular Ps3 av jacks that came with the ps3 broke so i went to game stop and got some new ones but i accidently got hdmi jacks then i used those for a day and the color was in black...

    you have to do the video reset once you use HDMI the ps3 stays in HDMI mode till you do video reset

    to do video reset:

    when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) press and hold the power button till you hear the second beep then release and that resets the video.

    hold power button............beep..............beep.......release, done.

    Ps3 wont power all the way up

    if you have moved your ps3 to a different tv or something, the video setting can get messed up, thus having to reset the video settings. here are a few steps to do so.

    1. put your finger on the reset button and wait until the ps3 is in standby. (Keep holding your finger on it, don't let go)

    2. turn off the ps3 completely by switching off the power switch (make sure your still holding your finger on the reset button)

    3. turn your ps3 back on (while still holding the reset button) and you will hear a beep. keep holding the reset button until you hear a second beep. let go of the reset button as soon as you hear the second beep

    this should reset the video of your ps3. ive done this to my ps3 before because when i was installing linux i almost screwed up my ps3. when i turned on my ps3 no picture or sound would appear. so i called sony and this is what they told me to do and it worked.

    Problem with ps3 controller

    Try hard resetting it by doing this:

    Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.


    Best of luck!
