Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Hi, after a certain amount of time of the system being off, when I turn the slim PS3 on it won't show up on the screen and then I have to reset it and then it works fine most of the time. I'm using an HDMI cable and have the display settings set accordingly. I have tried reseting the settings and even using a different HDMI cable. I have also tried changing the settings to 720p and nothing has worked

My ps3 does not transmit video or audio on any cords


Reset Video Output

If you are changing cables or cannot see an image on the screen, you may need to reset the video output to default settings. To reset the video output:
  1. While the PS3 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 PS3 beeps a second time (approximately 5 seconds), then release it.
  2. The PS3 will power up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

Start with the PS3 system turned off. Press and hold the power button until you hear three consecutive beeps then let go. Then repeat step one again. This time the last beep will be two consecutive beeps. This will put your PS3 system into safe mode. Click option 2. Restore default settings. Warning This will Reset all Settings.

Hi.

No you shouldn't need a new TV, all you need to do is reset the video settings, follow the guide below >>>>>

  1. Make sure that you have only 1 type of video cable connected between your PS3 and your TV or monitor, an HDMI cable is optimal. If you have multiple video connections the reset sometimes does not work.
  2. Make sure that your TV or monitor is turned on and set to the proper input for your PS3.
  3. With your PS3 in standby mode, turn your console on using the front power button and hold the button down.With the button held down, You will here one beep when the console first turns on, and, after about 4-5 seconds, you will here a second beep. When you here the second beep let go of the button.
  4. If you watch the screen you should see it flicker once or twice and then your system should boot up and go to a screen to confirm your video settings. Simply confirm the settings and you should be able to resume playing your PS3 as normal.
  5. If your system does not boot up and give you the confirmation screen for your video settings, then you should shut the system off and restart the system as normal. This will usually finalize the reset of the video settings.
  6. If your system still is not displaying video then please repeat steps 1-5 again. It is unlikely but, you may have to reset the video 3-4 times before it works with your console. The reason for this is unknown.
  7. The procedure to reset video ,on your PS3, should be complete at this point and you should be back up and running as normal.
NOTES: PS3 "slim" models are always in standby mode when plugged in. PS3 "fat" models must have the rear power switch turned on. If you are only using the composite video cables, then there will be no confirmation screens for your video settings.

Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

You need to turn on the tv and set to HDMI, Then power on the PS3 and hold down the on (standby) button until it beeps again twice and it will pick up the TV and display on the HDMI,

If this doesnt work go to system settings and video settings and set the output to HDMI.

The GPU overheated. Most likely fried, but you can try to let it sit for a few hours and see if it will boot again.
On an outside chance, you may try resetting the video options when you boot up the system. To do this, press the power button until it beeps once a second time. This will reset the video options and restore functionality if the problem is software related.

I have the same problem with my Samsung LE46A656 A1F Full HD


Hi,

If it was doing it on your old console then its the TV not the PS3.

Causes: HDMI cable (Replace cable), HDMI socket on TV (Get it repaired), If it happens on all HDMI inputs then the video board maybe faulty, Interference - location of PS3 to other equipment.

The first thing to do is move everything else away from your TV except for the PS3, now factory reset the Samsung TV and make sure your firmware is up to date my records show that an update came out in May for your TV, also factory reset the PS3 and setup the HDMI video settings using the wizrad in the PS3, now connect the PS3 through all HDMI inputs to see if its one input or all, if all inputs are the same then the TV maybe faulty.

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks
