    I first used it on a HD tv. Using the hdmi cord. And it worked perfectly. about 1 hr later. I tried to hook it up to a regular digital tv. And i got a blank screen. Someone told me I had to change the settings. But now it wont even work with the hdmi cord.

I had this same problem, you turn the ps3 off, then hold the button down for 8 seconds, then it should give you a message saying a HDMI device was detected or something like that and ask if you want to use it. (not sure about the message) but it's pretty easy to figure out and all (the message part).

hope it works for you as well.

good luck.

The "NO VIDEO/PIXELATED VIDEO" problem is all too common on the PS3. 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 processors. I do this for $55 or send to SONY if under warranty. If not under warranty they will fix for 150+tax call 1800345SONY

I had to pay the $149 for a refurbished system, lost all of my hdd data, and had to deal with Sony's HORRIBLE customer service for a few hours of my life I will never get back.  I recieved an identical 60 gig ps3 with only a 90 day warranty.  When I asked about PAYING for a longer warranty they said a longer warranty absolutely wasn't available.  Pretty bitter about the whole thing.  New Ps3 works fine, but now I shudder every time I turn it on, for it may be the last : (

My assassins creed wont load????


If you all are still having this problem, this is what I had to do. There are 2 places where you have to go in to and delete the assassins creed game data. One is the normal save data, but there is also a place with the game data that is corrupted. If you go in and delete both the save data AND the game data, it should reload all of that the next time you put the disk in and allow you to play.

Pitched noise coming from the fan


When I first got my PS3, It had the annoying high pitched fan sound as well, but went away after a week and has worked fine ever since, no problems at all. I have the 60 gig version, so. Maybe if yours is new you just need to break it in?
