  • newbrough198 Sep 17, 2008

    I have the same problem. Ever since I plugged my hdmi wires into the ps3 it will power on but nothing comes on the screen. ive tried to swap back to regular yellow, red and white cables and that doesn't work either.

    Half the time I can get the audio/video to work fine, the other half I get nothing but a black screen. I'm using Red/Yellow/White cables also.

    I turn on my PS3 console and work the AV cables, but nothing seems to fix the screen which stays black.

I turn my ps3 on but there is nothing just black screen .how i can fix this problem

First off, you should try turning your PS3 off and removing the HDMI cable from the back of your console. Plug it back in and then restart your console to see if this fixes the problem.

If this does not work then you will need to try a reset on your console (NB- this should NOT delete your save games, gamer profiles etc, but I'm not taking any responsibility if that does happen by mistake)

Put your PS3 into standby mode, then hold down the power button until a series of beeps are heard. Release the button then restart your console. This is actually in the PS3 user's manual too, and it is unlikely that anything is seriously wrong with your PS3.

If you want more information about how to fix the PS3 black screen then visit my free PS3 black screen repair blog.

I hope this helps you to fix your console,

It may have the changed somehow, try turning off your ps3, wait 10 secs, turn the ps3 back on and do not release the power button until you hear the beeps, it should reset your display.
