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!

    My playstation3 will turn on looks like it is working but my tv screen is blank nothing comes up


    Hi,

    Try to reset the video settings on the PS3 and also make sure the cables are all attached and that you have the TV on the correct input source.

    Turn the PS3 off so the red light is on. Hold down the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. Release the power button and press it again.
    That should have reset the video settings so you will be able to set the video settings again on the other TV and access the PS3 menu to set it up.


    If there is anything else please post back.



    Regards.

    Ps3 hdmi-av


    i currently have the exact same problem...i always play HDMI but i went home from college for thanksgiving and wanted to play on a regular AV jack TV, hooked up, and have no picture whatsoever...and i think it's because of the settings on the PS3 since it's set to send out an HD signal...Well i found this straight from Playstation3.com, on the support/troubleshooting section

    "
