Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Help no picture or output

Help please

we just downloaded last night the latest Ps3 software and PS3 seemed to be working fine. However after the update we decided to download a demo game and as it was taking so long decided to just leave it downloading.

Came back later and now the PS3 has no output signal ( according to the tv) we currently have it hooked up with HDMI, have just tried adifferent cable and also the video cable to no avail.

Ps3 turns on etc, and Green & blue lights come on and then nothing.

Any ideas please??

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.

It just freezes up at random while playing games,listening to music,watching videos etc. please help


Hello

The Sony Playstation 3 suffers from software bugs like any other device. These bugs can cause the PS3 to freeze during game play, which takes away from the overall experience of using the PS3 hardware. In order to combat these bugs, Sony software team frequently sends out PS3 software updates that will defuse any major bugs as they arise.

Go to the official Sony Playstation 3 update website and download the latest PS3 software update. Each update that Sony releases fixes bugs and adds new features.

Connect a USB flash drive or memory card to your computer and create a folder inside of the USB drive or memory card named "PS3." Create a folder inside of that named "Update."


Save the downloaded PS3 update file inside of the "Update" folder on the USB flash drive or the memory card.


Pull the USB flash drive or the memory card out of the computer and connect it to your PS3. Select the "System Update" option from the PS3 main menu.


Select "Update via Storage Media" from the next screen and press the "X" button to install the latest PS3 update on your machine. This will fix any software bugs that are preventing your PS3 from working properly.

Hello my friend. Your PS3 might be near YLOD problem. GPU has been overheated and is almost broken and it can't render high graphics(resolution). You need to Clear the dust inside ps3 and let it "Power on" for 1 hour . If this not works. You have to give it to a near computer service shop to give it life again. Please Rate my help! Thanks!

I am having connection issues with an LG 55lh40 television, a HD DVR from Directv, a PS3 and a DVD/VCR combo. The TV seems to be working good, but does not seem to be picking up an HDMI cable of any kind....


No picture
when connecting HDMI:
Check HDMI cable over version 1.3.
The HDMI cables don’t support HDMI version 1.3, it cause flickers or no screen
display. In this case use the latest cables that support HDMI version 1.3.

PS3 no picture and no sound


Try turning the system off completely with the main power switch on the back of the console. If that doesnt work call Sony technical support for further help.

No sound from digital out on PS3 using optical cable


Does the end of the optical cable glow red when hooked up to your PS3 while the PS 3 is powered on? Look at it without the cable plugged into the STR-D845.
