Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I was playing NCAA09 and it started to freeze then the screen went totally blank. I have tried restarting in numerous times. At first the sony part came on, now just a blank screen. I don't know what else to do. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time, Sean
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.
Most likey it was caused by overheating. Get some compressed air and blow it out from the front and sides.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
