Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Discoloration Hello, My friend & I live in Barrow Alaska (furthest north point in the US) & like an idiot he left his PS3 outside when it was about 10 below 0. When we hooked it up the picture was REALLY off, everything is blurry & the colors are all off. When you first start it up, you can barely read anything & we hooked it up to my 50? plasma so it wasn?t the TV. We then hooked up HDMI & everything looked the way it should have but when we switched it back over, the same problem was happening. It wouldn?t be a big deal but he has no HDMI hook up?s on his TV. I assume they have a HDMI to RCA cable out there but I wanted to ask around before he spent any money. Any & all help is greatly appreciated.

    It has sat for weeks now & nothing has changed. He probably screwed it up. Oh well, I told him that day not to leave it outside. I'm one of those guy that's always giving decent advice & no one ever listens. Even after what I say will happen happens repeatedly.
