Re: When i turn on my ps3 nothing happens

When you say nothing happens, Does the PS3 actually power up?

Or is it just not coming up on the tv?

Re: When i turn on my ps3 nothing happens

I had the same problem i think, what happened was when i turned it on nothing displayed on my screen or when i did it just shut off. The ps3 is like that, and what i mean is there has to be something to output a display to otherwise for some strange reason it turns off. Also ive noticed on new tvs the signal may not work with component or Scart sockets. I used HDMI on the same tv and it works fine. Try switching connections and Tvs and write what happened. Also explain the details of your problem in more details please:smileyvery-happy:
Hoped i helped in some way.

Re: When i turn on my ps3 nothing happens

May be a silly question but did you remember to flip the main power switch in the back. There should be a red standby light if you do this, then you can turn the power on using the soft-touch button on the front
