Video will not show up on TV, can hear audio but screen is blank

Recently got a used PS3. Plugging in the audio/video cables (the red, white, yellow) and it seems that the audio is working but no video. Is this something that can be fixed if I take it somewhere or is it a gonner.

Thank you

No Audio Blank Screen Video PS3 - SOLUTION


  1. Check video cables - Make sure they are secure and the TV has correct input selected.
  2. While the PS3 is OFF ( solid red light ): Hold DOWN the power button until your hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.
If that doesn't solve your problem: Remove the hard drive from the PS3.
Try the above steps again with the hard drive out.

If you still aren't receiving video or audio try connecting the PS3 to another TV and if possible, try different cables and different cable types: A/V (red,white, yellow) and HDMI.

If the above persists the problem is most likely related to the GPU on the motherboard. In this case I recommend contacting Sony direct for service.

My dynex tv only shows channel not available message?


Okay- the three cables (red, white, and yellow) are called RCA plug connectors. They are commonly used to carry audio and video signals.
Plug them into your Xbox according to the color codes- red cable connector to the red socket (jacks); then white to white, and yellow to yellow.
Now connect these leads to the RCA input jacks in the back of your t.v. - maintaining the same color code connections (red to red; white to white, and yellow to yellow)
The RCA input jacks on your t.v. should be labeled with an input number, to distinguish itself from the other inputs, like HDMI, S-Video, and such.
After plugging in your Xbox to the wall outlet or surge strip, turn it on.
Turn your t.v. set on.
With the remote control that came with your t.v. set, open the menu bar, scroll to... and open the "External Output" menu.
You should see a list of [however many] inputs your particular t.v has. Scroll to the input number that the 3 RCA cables are attached to, and press that number as the default video screen.
Exit the prompts and your Xbox video screen should be displayed.

Doesnt show up on the television. It does turn on. turned playstation on and off, tried different connections, still nothing


It is likely that the problem is your AV cable. This cable has one plug that connects to your Playstation 3 and a red plug, a white plug, and a yellow plug that connects to your television. Follow these steps to get your PS3 up and running again
  1. Unplug your AV cable from your PS3 and T.V.
  2. Plug in your AV cable to your PS3 and T.V.
When plugging your AV cable back into the T.V. make sure that the red plug is in the red socket, the yellow plug is in the yellow socket and the white plug is in the white socket.
If problems persist try using a different AV cable.

Power comes on but it only shows a blank screen. screen shows nothing at all no menu, nothing. tv works fine.


Make sure the video/audio cable is plugged in correctly. Red cable into red socket, yellow into yellow and white into white. It is easy to put these cables in the wrong socket by accident and will cause no image to appear on your screen.

For my PS3 There is no audio/video output for either the HDMI or Composite outputs


Your playstation should always come with 2 specific adaptors. One for power, the other which connects to your tv with yellow, white, and red cables. The yellow, white, and red cables are audio and video.
Hope I was help!

When i plug my hdmi cable into the back of my PS3, it says no input on my TV ?


you need to connect both the yellow red white cable and the hdmi cable into your ps3 and go the yellow red white av channel

go to the ps3 settings and change the video settings (ithink) to hdmi and also change the sound to hdmi

the screen will go blank and then the tv should change to the hdmi av channel if not change to it and accept the changes

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.
