First time posting on here. Had PS3 slim for just over a month and it's not had a lot of use (5 hours a week at the very most). Anyway I've got it connected via HDMI to a Sony Bravia tv and recently when I turn the console on the TV picks up the signal and says "playstation three, av5 HDMI" or somethng along those lines. But the actual start screen does not appear and it's just black. No matter how many times I reset the console this stays the same, I've tried unplugging the system and reconnecting it all back up.
Has anyone else had a problem like this?
i have a similar problem except my ps3 is 18 months old. Basicaly i havnt played my ps3 for about 2 months i decided to have ago today so i set it up but when i turned it on there was no picture, i tryed various things for about an hour- 2 hdmi cables, reseting display setings, the normal display lead but the only way i can get it to come on is by using a component cable but when i play any movie game etc quality goes realy bad and i get these green horizontal lines moving up and down the screen. i think its a gpu problem, what should i do?
Thank you! That was my exact problem and your msg was a perfect fix! thanks again!
didnt work for me.. i hold it down for the display settings and after two beeps im still getting a black screen? this happened to me two days ago but I switched HDMI cords and ports and its worked fine. Ive had to set it to hdmi before and this method has worked before. I have an older PS3 80 GB. any ideas?
hey dude, cheers for posting the info because I had this problem as well :)
this has been an ongoing problem with the PS3 since it first came out. I had an original ps3 fatboy thing when they 1st came out and now have a slim, but the problem persists. It is mighty annoying and I have no idea at all why Sony has never addressed it either. resetting the video settings via the power buttons seldom works, a load of switching on and off and disconnecting the power for 20 mins, 40, an hour or whatever is not always successful.
Please Sony Find a fix for this ASAP
I am having this same type of problem. Have you found a way to resolve yours? If so, what did you do?
I got the same prob wat do i do help somebody!!!
with the PS3 in an off state, hold down the power button until you hear a bleep (normally takes about 5 sec)
Let go of the pwoer button and you should get the display reset screen, which will detect what to output your display to HDMI or Scart.
Well I have just joined this merry band - a brand new PS3 320gb and a Sony Bravia KDL-37EX403, which is about 2 months old. Got the PS3, plugged it in, connected via an HDMI cable - bingo - that was about a week to ten days ago. Watched a dvd 2 nights ago, went to turn it on to try to get PlayTV working and got the black screen. Looked like it might be a cable problem so was gonna replace it, the shop I went to tested the cable and it was fine. So I have tested the PS3 on a non-HDMI TV and it works fine. The shop suggested it might be the Sony Sync - I have tried on/off all combos. I did manage to get a DVD playing but with no picture.
Having trawled the web a bit tonight this is clearly a major problem.
I reset the TV to factory settings and did the same with the PS3 on the other tv - no joy.
I haven't tried the holding down of the power on button twice, yet, but will later.
This is driving me nuts....what happens to Singstar on Boxing Day, now?
Well I thought I had been very clever by changing a couple of settings when hooked up to the HD TV but with a multi AV cable rather than the HD cable....it worked! Then I went to put the machine back where it lives and the screen went black - I swapped the ends of the HD cable so the bad one was in the TV and not subject to any movement - it's definitely the cable or where the cable connects to the PS3.
We had Singstar on Boxing Day and what a hoot!
A new cable will be bought.
This happen to me just tonight when I downloaded the new map pack. Try going to your Game Data folder and Save Data file and delete anything related to MW2. That should do the trick.
