Your PS3's HDMI settings may be the issue. When you go to turn on your PS3 next time, instead of just pressing the poser button and letting go, hold it for 5-6 seconds until it beeps again and then let go. This will force the PS3 to autodetect your TV again and should bring up the video. good luck!

System stuck on formating unable to connect controller


Hard Reset procedure for the PS3


1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

MY PS3 is hooked up via HDMI and has always worked fine. All of a sudden i went to turn it on and there was nothing but black, it detected a signal, but it was just black.


Hi there, Have you switched cables or changed any of the video output settings on the ps3 or your telly? Just double check all the settings and that the cables are connected properly and are not damaged. If you have another cable try that to see if you still have a black screen or try on another telly with the same cable to see if it's the cable that the problem is? If you using a standard cable to try on another tv, you will have to reset the video output so it will work, to do this simply hold down the power button on the front of the ps3 until it powers off again and this will allow it work on a standard tv with standard cable, and to switch back to hdmi just connect with hdmi. Cable to HDTV and the ps3 will detect the cable and ask if you want to use these settings. Hope this helps

Connecting ps3 to hd tv


ok here's what you do. Hook up your ps3 to your hd via hdmi cable then turn the tv on first. Then turn the power on to your ps3 and switch tv to hdmi. wait a while then a screen should come up and you should see and screen where it says an hdmi device is connected do u want to accept theses settings say yes. sometimes the "handshake" doesn't happen properly. If u already know this or have tried this it could be that your tv needs a firmware update, happened to me.

PS3 won't connect to TV with component video.


You need to connect the PS3 to the television with both connectors (HDMI and Component). Then in the display settings change it from HDMI to component and during the 30 seconds that the screen goes black you need to disconnect your HDMI cable from your playstation. Then switch to the input that the component cable is connected to on your television (ie. AV1, AV2, etc). From here you will see the countdown for the test and you can continue with these settings.

PS3 hdmi connection


With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.
