When you turn on the PS3 one beep is good, two beeps are bad. Two beeps will require a service call to support.

Common causes for this are:

  • Faulty connections, the cables are not seated properly or damaged.
  • Faulty television, you will need to test the input jack with another device such as a vcr or dvd player
  • The output selector in the PS3 is set to the wrong output. HDMI / Component / Composite. If you have mistakenly changed the output in the menu from HDMI (one cable) to the Compsite (Red yellow white cables) or vice versus the PS3 is attempting to output to the other connection.
While the system is off, hold down the power button until it turn on and keep holding it until it beeps and turns off again.

This will reset the PS3 to the defaults settings, the default connection will be RCA Composite so make sure you have the red yellow white cables connected to your tv which came with the system.

No picture or sound


Your display needs to be reset, Turn the ps3 off. Then turn the ps3 back on but continue to press the power button until you hear the beeps then it should work fine :)

Sound but no picture on PS3 using AV3/4


if it's happening with your ps2 and your ps3 on teh same tv, try it on a different tv. if you're getting sound but no picture, tehn it's something with your cables or your tv. restting the display setting should get your picture back up. make sure the system is in standby and then hold down teh power button. it will turn green and beep, then flash green and beep again. it should brng up a picture. if not, check your component cables, especailly if it works with the original cables.

Black and white and feedback


hi this problem usually happens if you have got alot of things plugged into the telly like dvd players this causes the interferance and can be solved by disconecting these other items.
Also are you plugging it into the telly via scart lead or are you using the av leads ie the different coloured ones.
If you are using scart fitting have you tried pressing the av button on the telly controll as if you are not on the right av chanell this will cause black and white pictures so give it a try also this is the same with the coloured leads let me know how you get on.
Make sure their is nothing in the conector at the ps3 end like a biit of paper or fluff as this can cause all sorts of problems and dont use your ps3 on carpet as it will cause unit to get to hot and will cause parts to overheat and will need replacing check all air vents are free from dust and make sure its on hard surface if the unit has overheated it will cost a fortune to repair
