Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Whenever I turn on my PS3, it turns on fine, but nothing appears on the screen. I tried switching a/v cables, but nothing worked. Thats when I noticed that when I turn it on, only the green light turns on. Is this a power problem, and if so can I fix it?
Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.
1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
