Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Video/Audio problem My 40 GB PS3 was working fine for the first three days after purchase, but now the picture and sound don't appear after it is turned on. The problem wasn't with the AV cables or the HDMI cable, but with the system itself.

    playstation 3 does not show anything on screen with da av cables



  • kwake06 Sep 05, 2008

    One day I was playing my PS3 over a friends house and he had his PS3 attached to a HDMI cord. When we decided to switch and play on my system with the HDMI cord, it worked fine, but when I got home to plug the AV cable back to my PS3 it did not work.

    The Audio and Video no longer was able to work. But, when I went to the story to buy a HDMI cable it worked fine.
    Since I have a TV without the HDMI capabilities in my apartment I need to use the AV cable.

    I went out and bought a new av cable from game stop and it still does not work. What should I do?

    I have had my PS3 for about 2 and 1/2 years no problems then all of a sudden i go to turn it on and get no sound no video. I know it is powering on and I can turn it off with remote becouse i remember the buttons to do it with. But the screen is black.

While the system is off, hold down the power button. You will hear one beep, keep holding it. You will then hear a second beep and it should turn off. Now turn it back on, and the video settings should be reset.

Ps3 restarts itself (when it does work nothing on screen)


sounds like your ps3 has overheated. ask a good electronic repair shop to change the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and the heat sync. let them know the gpu and cpu may need to be reflowed.

Tip: Keep your PS3 flat do not store standing on it side this will help prevent the thermal compund from moving as much

No picture, only sound through HDMI port


You have the video [yellow cord] on the wrong rca jack. Or a bad video cord. Should be easy to fix.

Problem with Picture and sound after about 40 mins playing time.


the unit is over heating. Make sure you hear the fan come on. Also make sure the unit is in a spot where it gets ventilation. They get real hot and need to disapate heat or the mother board burns out.

Got picture no sound on games only


Check the audio settings on PS3 and make sure they are set to what audio source you are using. If not that make sure those inputs work with other devices. If not that then the sound card has gone out and the soon the video car will go out.... :(
