You need to turn off the system with the "hard" button in the back of the unit, when you switch it back on hold the power button down for 15 secs, this should reset your vid settings.

I turn on my ps3 it starts but nothing comes on the screen


CAUTION: Following these steps can result in the loss of all saved games, demos, & etc... Resetting the PS3: Unplug the power cord and wait a couple of minutes to plug it back in. Press & hold the "On\Off" button on the front of the PS3 until you hear 4 beeps (1-1-2). Take your finger off the button just after the 4th beep. You may have to go thru those steps a couple of times or more before it goes to the 4th beep without turning off. Once you get it to go to the 4th beep and it stays on it should start going thru a "reset" mode. You will have to attach your USB cable to your controller & PS3. Just follow the on-screen prompts from there. Remember, loss of your game data could occur in the process, but its not really any use to you if you can't get the PS3 to start up to play games anyway. You will have a few options to chose from. I suggest trying the "restart" option prior to a "reboot" or "reset" of your PS3. Typically, this type of thing occurs if you've had your PS3 plugged into an HDTV and then connected back to a Standard-Def TV. For some reason the PS3 finds this un-agreeable alot of times. I would suggest that you keep it attached to one TV, and not move it from place-to-place very often.

I was playing a game and my PS3 froze up. I could not power down from the remote, so I pushed the power button on the front of the console. After a minute I turned the console back on. The blue&green...


Try this : When you put your ps3 on, hold the power button on the front of the console until it beeps 2 times, then the screen should start flashin and after that u'll get the chance to choose what resolution u want and so on.

When you hold down the power button like this, the screen goes back to default. Should fix your problem!

try video reset

when ps3 is in standby mode(red light)
press and hold the power button till you hear a second beep.

standby mode press hold power........"beep"......"beep"..release power button

then try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

Tv and ps3


Turn the power off on the switch on the back, and then back on again. Hold down the power button, keep on holding it down after the first beep, but let go once another couple of beeps sound. It should then take at max a minute but then it should show a screen set up section.

No picture or sound


Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. Make sure the TV is on the correct seting. i.e. Video 1, Video 2, etc.

3. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
