Playstation black screen with hdmi...help!!!!

5 replies 84 views Edited Feb 11, 2013
My ps3 was working fine all day. Tried turning it back on and the tv shows there's a signal but there's only a black screen. Tried everything! Tried different hdmi cable, didn't work. Tried reseting the ps3 with the power button, didn't work. Tried plugging something else into the hdmi on the tv and that worked but the ps3 still doesn't work. Even tested the ps3 on another tv, worked fine on the other tv. Obviously, nothing's broken since I tested everything. Have no clue what else to do.

Do you have any additional Hdmi ports that you test out with? Do you still have the original A/V cables that came with your ps3 ? if you do, consider resetting through holding the power button and test on a diff. tv. Make sure your hdmi port on the ps3 is dust free or hasnt been tampered with damage.

I tried other hdmi ports. Like I said before, it worked fine on other tv and other things work on the tv that the ps3 isn't working on. I guess I'll try using the av cable and resetting it on the different tv. Not sure how that will help with the tv I want to use...

I know you said you've tried the reset thing, but have a look at this video to see if it helps at all, maybe you missed something.

Push and hold your power button until the system beeps twice. Turn the system on and set up your video/audio settings to go through hdmi again. If that doesn't work, replace your cable
