It's actualy an easy fix. The problem you are having, is resetting the video options on your PS3. It auto detects HDMI or A/V cables. Here is a vid of how to do it. Again, really easy. Remember, this works with EVERY PS3 system.

How do you reset your PS3?


You can reset the Sony PlayStation 3 to troubleshoot the gaming system or restart after a hard drive freeze. Resetting the PS3 will restore the PS3's settings to to the default factory settings. Consider backing up any data or custom settings before doing a system reset for the PS3 as they might be erased.

instructions:

1
  • urn off the PS3 by flipping the power switch on the back of the system.

  • 2

    Turn the power switch back to the "on" position.

  • 3

    Hold the power button while the PS3 is powering up until you hear three beeps. These signal that the PS3 has received the manual system reset command.

  • 4

    Prompt through the initial setup menu to continue resetting the PS3.

  • 5

    Select "Format" from the system menu to format and finish a complete system reset for the PS3.

    When i start up my ps3 it has no icons what is the best way to fix that issue


    Best advice would be to do a hard reset, if a hard reset doesn't work it is an internal hardware issue that can't be fixed without opening the Ps3...Here are the instructions for how to perform a COMPLETE hard reset.Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).
    Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
    1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
    2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
    3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
    4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

    Good Luck!!

    My ps3 reads system is to hot and shuts down within five minutes. I don't think the fan is working at all. No warranty how can I fix this myself? I know how to take ps3 apart and I've cleaned the dust out...


    Try upgrading the firmware as well.. Or doing a factory reset..

    The error code could simply be stuck, and an upgrade or system restore may fix the issue if you have already cleaned the fans.

    i guess it's a problem with your Hard Disk . please try the following :

    • reinstalling all game data files
    • restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files such as game saves !!)
