PS3 sounds like its reading the disc but nothing appears

The TV says, check signal cable. We had a storm that messed up everything however the PS3 was turned off completely at the time, is it as simple as a cord?

    It was connected through an HDMI cable at the time. So i have tried hooking it up to 2 other tv's with the original av cords and it still didn't work so i'm not quite sure what to do next.

    How is your PS3 connected to the TV? Is the TV high definition?

Well if no TV recognizes your PS3, you will have to send in your TV for repair at Sony. If the PS3 was still plugged into the outlet then it could have been damaged by the storm.

My ps3 console will not read my games or movies and try a disc cleaner & nothing


The problem is not normally with the discs itself but with the lens coming away from where it needs to be.
You just need to readjust the lens that sounds difficult but really it is not too tough.
Check out this PS3 Repair blog and get the fix you need.

I have an xbox 360, but i have a ps3 connect to the tv via hdmi. i swapped the hdmi cable to the xbox and powered on. i had all the cables in the correct position, the correct av selected on the tv, but...


Have you tried disconnecting the HDMI cable from both the TV and the console and then trying to reconnect?

Y+RT does not reset controllers for the Xbox 360, so not sure what you are attempting there?

What type of TV do you have? It appears the issue is with either your cable or the TV seeing that you are having the same issue with both your PS3 and Xbox 360.

I still think your first step should be to disconnect all cables from both ends and reconnect. (with poer off of all sytems of course) If this doesn't solve your issue then submit further information on your setup such as TV make and model and I can research other possibilities.

Powers on but nothing happens


It happened to me too. When you plug in your av cables and are ready to play, follow these steps. With your PS3 off (Red light on), Press and hold the power button on your console. (Do not use the controller to turn it on.) Keep holding the button until you hear a second beep. (it takes about 2 to 3 seconds.) You will notice your screen flickers, then your PS3 will show up on the tv. All you did was reset the PS3 display settings. You can always go back to HDMI or AV cables. Have Fun.

PS3 - tv says no signal


You need to change the resolution output on your PS3 to match the capabilities of your TV. If your TV is not HD you can't leave the PS3's video output on HD. SCART is for european television connections. Have you tried using component cables? Have you tried changing your tv's source to Video 1 or Component 1 or HDMI or anything that might work? Good luck!!
