Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

4 Answers

No picture or sound

I'm having a problem with my ps3. The power turns on and all the cords are properly conected but for some reason I don't get any picture or sound. I don't even get the start up menu to come up. I tried different tv's incase it was my tv jacks but still no luck. I know absoultly nothing about this stuff so if you could please help and advise me as to what I should do I would greatly apperciate it.
Thank you,
Sheila

    Our ps3 has no picture we hear sound but that's all. We tried new plugs, different tvs and holding down the button to reset the system. Sony is not interested in helping unless is give them another 149.00 on top of the 500.00 we already spent. Anyone have any other ideas?

    Yea I have the same problem, but I'm gonna replace it. So If I take my old harddrive and put it in the new PS3 consule will I be able to play the games that I saved? or do I have to use 'back up'?

    my ps3 has the problem where it shows nothing on the screen and the controllers are blinking constantly,i tried two different hdmi cables but the av input wont show any thing also tried 2 different tv,s nothing!

  • Anonymous Oct 16, 2008

    when i start the system, it takes my tv off of no signal and shows a black screen with nothing on it. I have tried the a/v cables and still nothing. restarting it, shutting it off for a long period of time then restarting it, i thought it might have been a bad connection through the hdmi but i dont think it is.

The soft reset is the first thing you should try like a few people suggested. If that doesn't work contact Sony if it's under warranty for a new system. If it's out of warranty contact this guy.

I have my ps3 plugged in but powered off so just a red light is on.i push power button light turns green I hear fan come on and everything sounds normal but it has no picture at all.it takes cd no pro


Rudy, are you connecting to the TV with HDMI, or RCA cords? HDMI carries both picture and sound thru 1 cord, whereas RCA splits it to YELLOW RED and WHITE. The HDMI connection is automatically detected when connected to your TV. It will say"HDMI is detected, do you want to use these settings?" RCA is not automatic, and is prone for the video(YELLOW) cord to develope a bad connection. I wouls duggest first replacing the cord. They are inexpencive, and the fastest way to check your issue. I am going to include a link to a youtube video that will guide you through the steps on how to reset your video settings on your system.

Hi,made connection by use of HDMI cable from ps3 to tv with no problem.But now i wont to conect to tv which doesnt have aHDMI point.So i have got a SCART Lead which conect to ps3 to tv and i have an AV...


turn on your ps3 (with your tv also on) and hear the ps3 start power beep. after you hear this normal beep, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds till you hear a beep then let go of the button.
This will reset the outputs and resolution to defaults and you should get your display again, if you don't then the ps3 has a fault.

I turn my ps3 on and it work but there is no sound or picture.


HI, try replacing the A/V cords with a new set. if this doesn't help, it may be an issue concerning the integrated video chip set that is part of the main mother board.

In this case, you will need to contact Sony for this repair.

(make sure your video settings are set to the proper video output and, sound compatibility in the PS3 settings section)
