All the PS3 games are region free. That means it dosent matter
where you bought the console, or where you buy your games, they will all
There are a few things to be aware of
First the games still exist in PAL, or NTSC
versions. That means if your are using and older TV witch does not have
HDMI support, some games will not work correct, you may experience off colors,
or black white screen or other odd things. If you use a new TV with
HDMI there is nothing to worry about. since using HDMI signals
there is no suchs things as PAL, or NTSC. (this i got while surfing the net...don't know if its true)
import a game from another region. You must also buy DLC from
that region. meaning if you bought a japanese game you'll have to buy a japanese dlc. if you buy an american dlc or any other dlc it won't work. so buying other region games almost guarantees that you won't be playing any dlc for that game unless you know how to set up psn account in those regions. that part is easy but setting up an account so that you can buy is not since it'll ask for credit card info and it has to match with your billing address....i.e. you are setting up a japanese account but using a uk address for credit card billing... wont work
Some games have region locked online play. witch means if you import a US
game, you will only be able to play online with other people who have
the US version.
finally The bluray movies are still region
locked. you will be able to find some that are not. so unless you find those that are not region locked you will not be able to watch US movies on your UK PS3. of course this goes for dvd too since they are all region coded
hi there try using the ps3 as audio-cd play(blind, without screen)
with any other tv to make sure soun still is coming...
if there was a flash or circuit destroyíng the yellow(video)plug,
either the cable has been destroyed or the short backfired even into the video module of the psx3.
try exchanging the cable, if that doesn't do any good, the video module got smoked...
let a technician repair/replace it or you think about becoming the happy owner of another brand new psx3
I had this problem before. I messed with the settings on my PS3 and My TV until the settings matched. My PS3 would show the home until I loaded a game. I turned off then on my PS3 to get to the settings. My TV manual had the types of videos it supported so I went with the second to highest setting it supported and it worked. Hope this helps.
this may be due to the fact that your ps3 will be set up to hd. go into video settings when you switch it on and this should solve the problem. i had similar problems and bought a hdtv until someone pointed this out to me. however once you have experienced ps3 in hd you will not go back!!! hope this helps
It sounds like a problem with the PS3 mainboard, you'll have to either return it to the store, depending on their return policy, or send it in to sony for repairs. If you send it to sony, they should keep the same hard drive, and you won't lose any games, but if you return it, you'll get a brand new one, and lose everything.
Ive got a similar problem. My HDTV has a compatibility issue with the ps3 and whenever I enter a game or switch resolutions TV starts flashing between dotted white screen and ps3 screen. I have to remove the HDMI cable and then put it in again in order to fix it. (Or if you are rich just get another HDTV :D)
I would try it in another HDTV (different model and brand) to discard it being a problem with the HDMI port.
