Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 again also it plays movies and starts the game but then goes blank and only sound is heard! i guess why im asking is that it shows the the whole setup screen it would not even show that much if it was the cord![would it?]i was wondering if i got a setting for games mixed up or something because the hdmi cable runs fine its just that my tv which ive had it hooked to before only has component and regular!

Well did you change the setting on the ps3 before you switched to the hdmi cable? sometimes this can pose as a issue. there is a actual setting on the ps3 for this. so I would switch back to the last cables used and then go and switch this in the setup of the ps3 then it should work no problem for you.

av and comp and hdmi all process the a/v differently through the cables sometimes even on my dvd player I have had to adjust this in the setting.

ok i think I understand what you are saying so if im wrong please correct me but I think you should try this if you need further info on how to change the setting let me know and I will dig up the process for you.

hope this has helped

The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

Tv goes blank for few seconds while playing games


Sounds Like the graphics chip is starting to go. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They are faster and cheaper than Sony.

AFTER WORKING FOR A YEAR, PLAYING BOTH GAMES AND BLUE RAY MOVIES, MY PLAYSTATION 3 WILL NOT PLAY MOVIES. WHEN A BLUE RAY DVD IS INSERTED IT BRIEFLY SHOWS THE TITLE ON THE TV SCREEN AND THEN THE SCREEN GOES...


1. Turn off the ps3.
2. press down on the on/off button on the front of ps3 while turning on the button from the back. DO not let it go until you hear 2 beeps and will show a red light.
3. press the on/off button again and do not let it go until you hear 1 beep, paused, and two beeps. Let it go.
4. There should be a prompt asking you what to do. If you have hdmi, answer all the question yes etc.
5 there should be a menu list asking what you need done.. setting wise..

6. Choose the # 3rd list (not sure how many they were).
7. IF it tells you that your data is corrupted etc.. just click ok
8. wait till progress ends ( if it tells your your data is corrupted again, just click ok again).
9. It's going to do some loading again...
10.. end of restoring and you should see your ps3 menu

No picture but sound


Check the 24 Hz setting in the BD/Blu-ray setting area. Some televisions do not support this option. Turn it off. It will prevent blu-ray movies from playing.

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds


I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!

Blank Screen on CoD5 PS3


i have the exact same problem i think, is it where the opening treyarch movie starts but you do not see anything and it sounds like an option has come up but you can't see it?
That's what im getting, now FIFA 09 freezes everytime i play it,

The solution that has worked for me is creating a new account, it's odd but it works, i can now play both without any issues. Hope you've resolved it and tell me if it's worked.

Hope it's helped
