Why doesn't my PS3 have a signal on my TV?

Ken P.
Playstation 3 - PS3

I have a PlayStation 3 that will turn on, but it has no signal on my TV. I used an HDMI cable and have tried it in different ports on my TV. I even went back to the original cables that came with it to hook it up. What could be the problem?

It sounds to me like you need to reset your PS3 video settings. While turning on your PS3, hold the power button down for about 5 seconds until you hear two beeps. This should reset your video settings to basic and allow you to configure the output (composite/component/HDMI) choice.
this is what i did and i dont know if it will work for you but it did for me. i turned off my tv, took the hdmi out, unplugged my tv for 10 seconds, plugged it back in, turned it back on and hooked up the hdmi. it said audio only at first which was progress. before that it just said no signal. then i turned off my ps3 and turned it back on and boom. working. hope this helps guys!!!
If it gives you storage error I imagine that's a bad hard drive brother! Hard drives are pretty cheap these days
