    I have the 80gb model. No picture appears on the screen. I have already tried resetting the video output, but that did not fix the problem.

I have just recently got it to work! Turn off your PS3 about 3 times, approximately 5 minutes in between each time and after that it should work. It did for me.

SOURCE: ps3 start up promlem

so if you have ever had your ps3 connected to HDMI (HD cable) before, and your forgot to change it back to the normal cords that came with the game (yellow, white, and red) then you will have to connect it back up to the HDMI and go to the Display Settings and change your video output to the one that came with the ps3 (which looks like just one yellow in the settings.) then after you do that then the screen might go black if your HDMI and regular cable are on a deffirent channels, so you turn to the channel that the yellow white and red cable needs to be to, then it will show the screen and ask you if you want to leave it at this setting with this video output/cable then you say yes then your good to go.

When playing a game or dvd, my Playstation makes a ticking sound like somethings jammed in it. It's possible my daughter stuck something in there and messed something up. It'll play and as time goes on the...


PS3 Clicking noise is associated with the hardware aspect, so that's your starting point it may come from the PS3 fan clicking, so do check out the fan if there's something that might have got stucked in between. Clogs from too much dust or dirt may also cause PS3 clicking sound.

PS3 clicking noise may also come from the hard drive. The hard drive are a bit noisy because of the mechanical parts and moving drive head when reading and storing data. Again, if the noise level is very minimal, there's no worry. PS clicking noise fro the hard drive that becomes too audible may signify that the hard drive is having mechanical problems and may soon broke down. At this point you may want to backup any data you have



I hope this helps you.

Ps3 will not start up. no display


sounds like the resolution is not set correctly on your tv or your ps3 settings. make sure they both are set to 720i to start, if you have a HDMI cable, that should be the min resolution your tv will do.

Find out the max resolution your tv can do, and set the ps3 to output that.

720i is a good place to start.

My PS3 wont start up. when i turn it on i get noting no sound or image .


Check your HDMI (looks like USB connetion) Connection or your Composite video connection (yellow, red, white connections.) Make sure they are correct and tight on both your TV and PS3.
Most common connection to use 1st is the Composite video connetions. Yellow is your Video display; Red and White are your Sound!

Good Luck.
