Put the PS3 in standby mode (red light) then hold down the power button on the front for about 10 seconds until you hear a beep. That will reset the output to factory settings.

This is usually caused by using an HDMI cable, and then switching to the regular Playstation cable.

I just get a blank screen with no sound or anything when i turn it on


I once had this issue, the solution was hard to find(five hours), but fairly simple. (This works for HDMI cable set up, but I'm not sure concerning AV)
Note: Yes, the solution sounds ridiculous, but for this issue, it works.

1. Unhook your PS3 from the current TV/Computer screen you have it hooked up to.

2. Hook it up to a different TV/Computer screen that you have or a friend may have.

3. Power on the PS3 and it should have a screen and everything and work just fine.

4. Hook it back to your original TV/Computer screen and power on the PS3 and it should work fine there again aswell.

My screen is blank and the contollers won't sync up


Sounds like it may be a video problem. Try reseting your system:

1. make sure the system is off

2 hold down the power button for 5-6 seconds, until you hear a second beep

You should be able to use it.

If that doesnt fix it, please let me know the serial number on your ps3, how you are connecting it to your tv (composite, hdmi etc) and the last time it was working and what you have done since.

Your HDTV only supports 1080i ? If thats the case make sure that under settings youve got only 1080i selected appart from 480p which is standard.

If thats not the case then tell me: Does sound play or just a blank screen and no sound??? (game crashes)
