Hi i think it's the heat transfer compound (fan) in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety percaution.

I push power button, green light comes on but nothing happens


It sounds like your ps3 is not reading your disc. Maybe check the disk or try a lens cleaning disk? Could need to be sent in to sony.

My picture started flickering the other night while playing a game. Then I went to turn it on today and I can't get a picture, there is still sound however. Thinking maybe a video card problem or something...


Its sounds like a video cord problem, if you are hooked up by the yellow red and white cords to your TV, adjust them until the picture returns, its a VERY common problem on EVERY TV and console since the SNES. Could also be the plug on the back of the PS3 if you just play with the cords your problem should resolve.

PS3 40G completely unresponsive.


I just had this problem happen to me. I'm looking into it as well. Exactly what happened to mine, except I was playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 online.

Iturn on it says cannot start the correct Hard disk was not found


Open up your ps3 on the right site with a small flat screw driver.
Turn out the blue screw with a small cross screw driver, slide the hard drive to the left and pull it to warts of you, note it is a 2'5 inch sata notebook harddrive.
Hook it up to a pc or mac to run a diagnostic check on it to see if it is crashed, by the way you're able to tell by the sound it makes if it crashed.

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.

Ps2


hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. about 3 seconds which should restart the settings to the default composite settings. from there you can change the settings back to hdmi or whatever you had them at before.
