Ps3 won’t display video and sound.?


I bought a 60gb Backwards Compatible ps3 on eBay and when it arrived, I realized that it did not display video and sound. I already checked the cables to make sure it was in the right place and it is. I also tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds, but it didn’t work. I won’t want to send it in to sony because they would send me a non-backwards compatible one, which is BS. I really hoped it isn’t a lemon. Any idea pleaseeeee. helppppp

  1. wow i hope it aint what i think it is,if im correct the previous owner had a hd tv and connected the ps3 to with an hdmi cable, when you do that the hole ps3 customizes to fit that specific tv so it would only show on that tv and the only way to put it back to normal is to put it on that tv and do it personally that happend to me luckely it was my brother tv and i managed to switch it back,ask the owner or maybe im jsut wrong many people had this problem

  2. If it is what Gabriel says there is a way to fix that, just hold down the power button until it beeps twice. Also, are you trying to connect it with an HDMI cable or with the standard cables?
