PS3 powers on but no picture. NEED HELP!!!

18 replies 104575 views Edited Mar 12, 2007
My PS3 powers on but no picture appears on the tv. It never used to do this before and I've had it for about a month and a half. The indicator lights will turn on but there is no picture. I've tried turning it off from the power switch and turning it back on. I tried using both the HDMI cable and the AV cable but no picture appears.

Turn the system completly off and this time when you turn it back on, hold it down until you hear a second beep. Picture should be restored.

You are swapping display cables? You just need to reset the ps3 display settings. When you have your display cable of choice plugged in, turn on your ps3 and hold in the power button for about 3-4 seconds or until you hear a beep then let go. This will make the ps3 setup its display on the cable you are using and you should see a picture.

Welcome to the Forums,

  1. Place the console in stand-by(red light on)
  2. Using the power button, on the console hold it for about 5 seconds till you hear 2 beeps(not 3)
  3. This should restore your display settings...

I tried it again and this time the screen flashed but did not show a picture. I don't think its the tv because my ps2 works just fine on it.
Am I supposed to hear two beeps, one right after the other.

people are forgetting the major peice of information....

Put the composit cables back in to your TV make sure you TV is on it's designated composit channel and you should have picture

from there you should be able to change your picture output via settings
