I'm sure you already checked the connections on both the ps3 and Tv to make sure they are firmly and properly connected.
So, when turning on the ps3, hold the power button for at least 6 seconds until you hear a second beep. this should reset your audio/video settings to normal.

if using HDMI, wait for about a minute for the ps3 and TV to negotiate a connection.

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!

    Half screen is blank 42lg20 or 42lg50 when


    This is likely to be the T-con board. If the entire screen glows but you have no picture on the second half of the screen then it is the main board, not the backlight inverter. If the screen is half picture and half gray it is the T-con board.


    Replacement of one of the above will fix the issue.

    Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


    Hello,

    If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

    I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

    Take care.

    Using a Compaq WF1907 monitor with a Playstation3


    No. HDMI transfers picture and sound, but DVI does not. You need a audio line as well.

    Straight from Playstation3.com Support/troubleshooting section:

    "
    • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 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 PLAYSTATION®3 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."
