Keep you finger over the power button for 10 seconds while it is on. This will reset the video output settings and you will be asked to choose a new video output

Screen goes black


sounds like you're using an HDMI cable, and the cable is broken. That's exactly what happens when HDMI cables break, a few of those 0s and 1s don't make it to the TV every once and a while, and the TV goes black and the audio dies.

or

go to system update and choose online update. an optional ps3 firmware 3.01 fixes this issue

also, I had a similar situation a while back. Anytime I loaded any disk (game or movie) it would just go black and freeze. I had to do a system reset (where it reloads everything and you lose your data). You can back everything up before that and restore it once you are done. It has worked fine for nearly a year since then.

No picture or sound


Your display needs to be reset, Turn the ps3 off. Then turn the ps3 back on but continue to press the power button until you hear the beeps then it should work fine :)

When i turned on my ps3 today nothing displays on tv at all..........just a black screen


Check EVERY! cable, TV too, EVERYTHING.
Especially if it's HDMI, they come out EASILY.

Make sure TV is working properly with other things, it could be your TV.

If all cables are correct remove the game and whatnot and try different things.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!
