The "no video" problem is quite common. you most likely have cold or even worse, bridged solder joints resulting in poor connections in your RSX/CELL processors.

The play station turns on but the menu is not coming up. The wave line is on the screen of the TV


Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!

PS3 No audio video


This problem happens with some of the PS3's and it is a motherboard issue. The PS3 motherboard needs to be reflowed using a reflow station. I have one of these stations on it's way to be able to fix this issue if you still have this problem. You can contact me at ced70@hotmail.com for more details.

Thanks,

My ps3 doest display anything nor makes any sounds please help


Just a gander, but your PS3 may be set for HD output thus not displaying on your non HD television, your best bet in this case is to find an HD television, friend, coworker, etc, connect to it and switch the settings back to regular. Also if I understand correctly leaving the ps3 completely unplugged for 72 hours may also reset all settings. Good luck!

Playstaion at home dowload froze PS3 wont boot up


Yeah, sony is going to tell you to send it in. Little bit of advice though, I was reading somewhere to NEVER turn the machine off while a game is running in it from the back. I always go to the game menu and go to "quit game" and then from the XMB menu go to "quit game", then go to "turn off system", then turn the switch off in the back. After reading some of the "horror" stories I don't want to have to pay $$$ to get a new ps3 because of some glitch in the system. But I would if I had too because microsoft sux. I am installing linux on my ps3 right now to see how that pans out, but I think you fried it buddy

Check the vents on you ps3. If those are blocked or even too close to a wall or something like that, the game will freeze.
