The "NO VIDEO" problem is all too common. It results from overheating of the RSX and/or CELL processor. It is necessary to disassemble the unit apply AS5 compound and shim the heatsinks to ensure proper contact between the heat sink and the processor. I do this for $65.

I attempted to update the system from a game and now it's stuck. when i turn it off its just starts the update again and every time it gets stuck on 99% and it just stops. i tried getting to the restore...


If the power button hold doesn't work...try this...,
Take the clip out that holds the drive. Take the screw out but leave the drive inside.
When the update begins, pull your drive out. You will get an error message and it tells you to restart your system to try again. Instead, let the time run out, and your screen will go blank for about 30 seconds until it starts back up telling you that you need to reformat the drive. (If you don't get this message after 30 secs the first time, YOU HAVE TO REPEAT IT till it does. Then put your drive back in again making sure your controller is plugged in (wired in with USB) and press the PS3 button on the controller. It will then ask you to either press start and select at same time OR PS3 Button PRESS START and SELECT. Do not agree to any user agreements!! Make sure you hit cancel and it will reset to the startup screen.
* Just wondering....did you recently open your ps3?

Downloading ps3 update and I'm stuck on a error loop


hey mate!
i had the same problem as you have with a 40 gb model i bought with a ylod and fixed. after i assembled it i tried to update the firmware but it got stuck in a loop between 69 to 70 % and wouldn`t finish the install. after doing some research i found out the the error number that appeared (cant remember the number now) happned because some hardware wasn`t connected the way its suppose to,when 69% will indicate the blu ray drive,and indeed i noticed that the clip on the ribbon was broken . i had to use a piece of cardboard at first to shove it right to its place nice and tight and started the ps3 again , (failed again because my wifi antenna wasnt connected, but after i connected everything...) the update finished and i was a happy man!
so if your ps3 have been opened in the past , there is your problem.
hope i healped and good luck!

My ps3 gets stuck on the wave screen


This is usually caused by one of two things:

1) If the wave is still moving but you do not get a menu, then it is most likely the hard drive is having problems. Try taking it out and booting the system to see if it continues past the wave screen...then you will know for sure.

2) If the wave is not moving (frozen) on the screen, then it is probably a problem with the GPU and will need to be serviced.

If it is under warranty, I would send it in. Taking out the hard drive will not void the warranty, but taking apart the console will.....Hope this helps...
