PlayStation 3 XMB Problem

I've had my 60gig PS3 since it came out in November of 2006 and have had no problems with it. But just a few hours ago the XMB (systems main menu) now appears along the top of my tv rather then along the centre. which cuts off the menu as well as any content played on the system. Such as games, movies and pictures.

I do not know if its my tv or the system. I say this because I hooked the PS3 up via the supplied none HD cables (the problem I am having is with HDMI) the XMB shows up fine. I also checked my tv and it appears to be fine when tuned into tv channels. Could it be a bad HDMI connector on the PS3 or the tv? Possibly bad cables?

Thanks for any help.

    My tv is a RCA and its model is L26WD12. I've had HDMI hooked up to it since I got the tv in 2006. Had no problems until now. The tv supports up to 720p I think. It doesn't say what its resolutions are anywhere. But I do know the PS3 upscales its images to 1080p. This is according to the info on the PS3.

It could be either a problem determining the aspect ratio change between HDMI and your DVI cable or a problem or the settings on your television (You may have the resolution setting too low for HD, does your TV support 720i, 720p, 1080i and 1080p?). If you post back with your model of TV I can help you figure out what's going on.
It's unlikely to be a hardware issue on either connector.

My 60gig ps3 froze stopped reading games from bd drive


its a bug in the update (3.00/3.01)
you arent alone with this problem, im one of them to, so im in the same boat as you.

So far theres no fix for this, and theres only 3 things you can do.

1. Call Sony and have them replace your faulty unit. (not free. (can be free if you have warrenty))
2. Replace the Blu-Ray unit yourself. (you will lose your warrenty if you do this. if you still have any)
3. Wait and hope Sony gonna release an update that fix the latest update. (probaly a 3.02)

Ps3 shuts down


It's a over heating issue. Make sure it isn't on carpet, in a closed cabinet, or any other enclosed area, also make sure it isn't next to a heating vent. Let it cool down for a few hours, and it should be ok.

Playstation 3 problem


Hello.
If it doesn't even load to the XMB or only gets to the XMB and freezes, then it's the hard drive. Remove the hard drive and try a different one. It will ask you to format it, say yes, then it will turn off and back on.

Also, just to keep up your machine, get some compressed air and use the straw it comes with to blow out your PS3 to remove most of any dust build up.
