Maybe you did set the PS3 to the wrong video mode, hold the power button till you hear 2 blips, this wil set the ps3 to recovery mode and you'll be able to set up the video mode and sound output, else try another cable, you also want to try your ps3 on another tv.

If this does'nt solve the problem try contacting Sony.

I'm trying to connect my ps3 to an HP w2007 LCD monitor, yet the monitor states it cannot connect because of changing settings to 1680x1050-60hz. I've already connected HDMI-DVI and have no idea next.


You need to change the resolution on your PS3 to match the 1680x1050 of the monitor:
Start with your PS3 turned off. With the PS3 off (showing a solid Red light) if you hold the power button down until you hear two beeps it will force the PS3 to forget any saved video output settings and boot up at a lower resolution. It will then take you through the Optimal Resolution set up.

I have a ps3 and cant get a picture on my 42" LG


Ok, you need to do the following :

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

The PS3 will start up and reset the display

Make sure you do this with the HDMI cable connected.

Hope this helps

I press the power button, and it lights up and I


ok so in this situation you need to call sony. its broken, but there have been reports of people "roughing up" their ps3's to get them to work, try unplugging everything, and flipping the power switch to off, on your ps3, then plugging it all back in and turn the witch on, they say after about the 4th to 5th try you can get it to boot up, my suggestion is to never turn it off after that, but dont hold me accountable for whatever happens. this is what ive read on the internet

Ps3 power supply


I can sell you a power supply if interested but if you get a red light the power supply is most likely still good. You may need a new motherboard.

Ps3


it's the first simptom of overheating.
Eventually it will fail complete and would not even turn on anymore (goes green-yellow-3 beeps and flashing red). at the point there is nothing you can do anymore.
Send it in for repairs or if you do not have warranty open the console and replace the thermal compound of the main processors. It may help
