Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

Ps3 no picture no sound "no signal"

Sent my ps3 in for repair and they sent me a refurbished one. Hooked it up and I have no picture and no sound. I tried the hard turn off and soft turn on with 3 different tvs (2 samsungs and a older sanyo) and 3 different connection cables(a/v hd, RF, and hdmi). Is there anything else I can try before waiting another 2 weeks for sony to mess around.

  • Make sure the system is off.
  • Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds - until you hear the second beep.
  • That's it, your video settings are reset and you should be able to choose your input and configure it from there.

PS3 turns on but I don't have a picture. It acts like it is not hooked up but it is.


A common problem is that the video signal is sometimes sent out in a non standard format. If you try holding down the power button for 5 seconds it will revert back to standard definition and hopefully you will get a picture.

PS3 won't work after installing MGS4?


How did you turn it off? Did you use the"hard switch" in the back of the ps3, or the soft power button in front?

My ps3 locks up on occasion, and have to turn it off with the hard switch in the back.

If that doesn't work try this:
Turn off the ps3 with the hard switch, then hold your finger on the soft power button in the front while turning the hard switch to the on position. Hold your finger on the front power button for about 10 secs, this should reset your vid settings.

Hopefully this is helpful to you.

No Picture, Only sound


You need to tell the PS3 that you are now using the new video method. It is still trying to output video on the yellow cable, not the component. If you go to settings>video and tell it to use component, and then switch the cables real quick, it should work.

An easier solution is to do a backup from the system menu, then a "restore" (quick restore is fine), and then power it off, hook up the new cable, and it will detect the video method when it turns on for the "first" time (since the restore).

You do have component input on your TV, and that is the input you are on when you are trying this, yes?

I understand how frustrating that must be. How big is the hard-drive that came with your unit? Did you buy it brand-spanking new or used? Update to version 2.2. It came out last night. Then, once that is complete, shut down your PS3. Unplug everything from your memory card ports and usb slots. Unplug the power cable at both ends (from the wall and the ps3). Then switch the PS3 hard switch (on off, lever, not the soft method of turning it on by a mere touch). Leave it that way for 10 minutes. Plug power cable back in at the PS3 and then at the surge protector/power-strip (wall). Turn in on with the switch and then use the soft method (described above) on the front. That should fix it. If not, send it back for a warranty exchange. Good luck.
