Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Last night i went to play my ps3 and could not get a picture) and when i did it would flicker on and off! my lcd tv is new as is my hdmi cord which is what i thought it was! so then i tried a av cord but still nothing) not even a sony tital screen! i have never had a problem before and my machine has never been over used ( I hope you can fix this problem for me! as 60gb sonys seem to be becoming very rare and expensive to replace. thanks
Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.
1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
