This may not be a definate answer, but I had a similar problem once before. Like some other electronics, the system sometimes just needs to be reset. Simply unplug the system from the power source. All power should be off, and the standby light should go away. Having done that, you should wait about 5 minutes of just letting it sit there. When you plug it back in, it should have reset itself. By resetting, it's just cancelling all functions that may have been occuring at the time. Rest assured that by doing this, it is not erasing any data or doing anything to your settings. This has worked for many of my electronics, ie: my BOSE system, my PS3, and my PC, but, in this particular case, I have not encountered this specific problem before and am simply offering a suggestion that my help, but is not guaranteed to work. Hope it does though, I like to think that I know something about this stuff! ; )

Turned onn playstaion sounds like its working but nothing on screen swicth from hdmi to rca plugs to if it hdmi was bad still wont work

Try to start the console in safe mode.


1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.

Good Luck!

Can't get a picture the power is on but no picture

Try turning the power off using the switch on the back of the playstaion and turing it back on. I believe your problem is that it is not sending out the right tv format for your tv.

No display on tv

It won't there is a setting on the PS3 that you have to tell it on the HDMI connection that you want to transfer back to A/V cables. If you don't do that and you have been playing with HDMI and then switch to A/V then it will still try to load using the 1080i settings instead of the 480i thus you will have a blank screen on the TV. Hope this helps.

Playstaion 3

Try using a different hard drive. The reader arm may be stuck on the platter inside your hard drive so it can't fully boot. Thanks.
