My dad came back from Iraq with a ps3 and it won't show up on the tv (av cables) we tried it on an hdmi that didn't work we also tried holding the power button down that dident work so can you tell me...

Even though your PS3 was bought in a country that uses a different TV system than the North American system, it will not effect your ability to use it. The PS3 was made to be used with the HDTV format which is universal regardless of which country you are in. The problem you are experiencing has to be either the inputs of your TV, or an issue with the PS3.

If you are already using other hardware with your TV, such as a DVD player, and you are able to use those inputs, then we can eliminate the TV. That would mean there is something wrong with the PS3. If the PS3 is starting up normally, and your power light is not blinking (which is a built in diagnostic program), then there may be an issue with the outputs of the PS3. If the cables you have tried to use with the PS3 work on other units then we can eliminate that issue. The problem would then be the internal components of the PS3. Try this;

1) Press and hold the power button long enough for it to power on and then off again.

2) When it goes off press and hold the power button again until you hear 2 beeps. As soon as you hear those 2 beeps immediately let go of the power button.

3) At this point you should get a display and the system will ask you to connect the controller.

4) Plug in the controller and you should then see a menu on the screen like this:

  1. Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
  2. Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
  3. Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
  4. Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  5. Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
  6. System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System
If you are able to see this menu try each of the items and then check to see if your system will start normally. DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER DOWN THE LIST IF ONE OF THE CHOICES RESOLVES YOUR ISSUE. Depending on how far down the list you go you may lose any saved information such as games or scores.

If you are not able to see the menu at all then your problem is internal to the components. At that point you will have to take your PS3 to a repair center and have them take a look at it. Ask them to give you a quote before they fix anything as the repair may end up costing you more than what your Dad paid for the unit.

I have a ps3 80gig unit first issue started when i downloaded the recommended sony update. at about 69% complete dowmload everything froze. several reboots same thing. so i reformatted hard using my...

Hi crackedpisto,
I should inform you that by swapping the disks you have probably voided your warranty.
Coming back to your issue, try the following:
  • Switch off the PS3 from the back switch
  • Press and Hold the POWER button and switch on the PS3 with the back switch
This is the hard-reboot and should generally solve almost all the problems.

Please let me know if the issue persists.

I just get a blank screen with no sound or anything when i turn it on

I once had this issue, the solution was hard to find(five hours), but fairly simple. (This works for HDMI cable set up, but I'm not sure concerning AV)
Note: Yes, the solution sounds ridiculous, but for this issue, it works.

1. Unhook your PS3 from the current TV/Computer screen you have it hooked up to.

2. Hook it up to a different TV/Computer screen that you have or a friend may have.

3. Power on the PS3 and it should have a screen and everything and work just fine.

4. Hook it back to your original TV/Computer screen and power on the PS3 and it should work fine there again aswell.

Dear Experts I recently played my ps3 online at a friends house, but when i returned home and turned the console on, my ps3 no longer had audio or visual support. The power supply is still working fine...

While the PS3 is OFF (solid red led), Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.

This is how to issue a soft video reset. Should work after that :)

I just bought a Singstar bundle but the mics provide a constant buzzing noise when activated. I've tried different usb hubs and blowing on the ports but didnt work. It is only when the mic's are activated...

We've had the issue since PS3 purchase. I read on another forum today about having plugged the PS3 in the same power extension block as the TV causing the issue. Though this was not the cause of our buzzing on the PS3, it lead me to the fiind the cause of my buzzing noise problem . The issue is caused by use of Power over mains ethernet adapters, in my case these are used to connect my BT Vision unit to the internet. As soon as the unit makes a data connection to it's master unit, the humming starts! We are just going to have to power the nearest adapter off when we wish to make use of the MICs on the PS3!

Is the power not working on your PS3 This can be a frustrating occurrence, especially if your PS3 was working properly before. While there are a number of reasons why this might occur, there are two common ones -- the use of a non-licensed or genuine AC adapter, or a failed AC Adapter on your PS3 On very rare occasions, the power supply adapter on your PS3 may requiring the entire PS3 unit may need to be replaced.

However, before get too worried about that -- let's try a few basic troubleshooting procedures to try and diagnose the issue. PS3 guide on this problem is fairly comprehensive and has some good content, so I have included that below. In addition, you will want to check that following common issues before moving forward.
1. Check and make sure your cables are properly plugged in. This may sound silly, but sometimes they can become loosened causing bad power connections. Best to check before you spend much time troubleshooting.
2. Does the power strip or wall outlet that your are plugging the PS3 into have power? Make sure you can plug in other devices into that same outlet to verify there is not an issue with either the power strip or the wall outlet.
3. Make sure there is adequate ventilation. Although it is covered below, it is best to make sure there is several inches of free space at the back of the PS3 to provide good air circulation to the PS3 so it does not overheat.
Here is the PS3 information on trying to troubleshoot power problems on a PS3:
1. Make sure that the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work
Hope this will help...

What do i do if my hdmi on my ps3 isnt working can it be fixed

The issue may be that your TV is not capable of displaying the resolution the PS3 is attempting to use. By doing the following steps the PS3 will adjust itself to your TV's native resolution.

1) Make sure your TV is on and set to HDMI input.
2) Make sure that you have your PS3 connected through the HDMI connection.
3) Power on the PS3 using the POWER switch on the unit itself, not the one on your controller. Hold down the POWER switch for 5 seconds. The PS3 will then automatically switch itself to the correct resolution.
If this doesn't work then try another HDMI cable to ensure the problem isn't the cable.

If none of the steps work then you may have an internal issue. The problem is that there are a number of issues that could be causing the HDMI connector to malfunction. Without the proper equipment and experience it will be impossible identify the cause. This would be the time to take it to your local PS3 shop and have them do a diagnostic and a quote on the cost of repair. Remember that most shops will charge you a minimum of one hour's labor to do the diagnostic.

My ps3 will not turn on. it tries but then the light just starts blinking red. it was working fine last night though

It sounds like a power cycle is needed. If you are using a power strip, please turn off the PS3 and then the strip. Count to 30. After 30 seconds turn the strip back on, followed by turning the PS3 on.

Hopefully that will solve your issue. Hope this helps and have a great day!

My ps3 wont turn on

Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced

PS3 No audio video

This problem happens with some of the PS3's and it is a motherboard issue. The PS3 motherboard needs to be reflowed using a reflow station. I have one of these stations on it's way to be able to fix this issue if you still have this problem. You can contact me at for more details.
