I hooked my PS3 to my HDMI cable to get a better visual screen display for my HD movies and games, but display screen went blank and I cant get the commands menu screen, how can I get the menu commands...


You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

  • Hope this helps please remember to rate my response, thanks!

    Display problems while playing Virtual Console games


    If you are experiencing display issues (dim, blank or half-blank screen, ghosted image, etc.) with a Virtual Console game while using the Component Video Cable, please read the following:
    Some Virtual Console games default to displaying 240 lines of video. Some HD TV's are unable to display a signal with only 240 lines. Try the steps below to set the Wii to output 480 lines of video, which may solve the problem:
    1. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.
    2. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
    3. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)
    4. Select "Operations Manual" from the Home menu.
    5. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.
    6. Close the Home menu. The game should now display correctly. Note: You will not have to do this the next time you play, as the Wii console will remember these settings.
    If the Virtual Console game is still not displaying properly, but all other games work fine, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

    Troubleshooting - Video

    Quick Tip! If you already have your system connected using AV cables and you are getting a blank screen, it is likely all you need to find is your input select, Check out our Input Select Locator
    Blank Screen
    Scrambled Graphics/Other
    Blank Screen

    Make sure your system is hooked up correctly. This is the number one reason for a blank screen. To ensure all hookup connections are firm and correct, remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion (this will help fully seat the connections). For more information about connecting the system, check the following hookup steps:

    Audio/Video Cable to a TV
    Audio/Video Cable to a VCR
    Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
    Make sure the system has power. If not, go to the No Power Light instructions.
    Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.

    Important Note: Inserting the game with the Power ON may result in a blank screen. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks

    There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.
    If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, click here.

    Other Screen Problems

    Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system.

    We find that video problems occur most when an unlicensed RF switch is used. Make sure the name "Nintendo" is molded onto the RF switch, as opposed to "for use with Nintendo." Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with our systems and may not work correctly.

    Check all of the system connections to verify that they are firm and correct.

    For AV connections
    Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion

    For RF connections
    Make sure the channel switch on the TV and system are set to the same channel (either CH3 or CH4)

    Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to make sure it is locked in place.

    Important Note: Removing the Game Pak with the power ON will cause the Game Pak image to freeze on the screen. Press Reset to correct the problem. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks.

    Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
    If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, see below.


    What to do if Troubleshooting Doesn't Help
    Due to the age of the system, we no longer offer factory repairs directly from Nintendo. Please click here to find out what options are available for repair or replacement of your product. If you simply need to order parts or accessories, you may want to check out our Online Store. Nintendo's Online Store still carries many parts and accessories for our older products.

    Blank playstaion menu screen no more sound help


    sorry for the last post: Was thinking about connection problems:

    Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.



    Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

    Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



    It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

    the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.

    Upper screen blank


    That could be normal. Some games don't use both screens. If it never works with any games, or in the main menu then the screen has failed. You will need to call Nintendo customer service for a repair (probably free under Warranty) if that's the case. Hope this helps.
