    i think the best bet for you is to call Microsoft and ask them for sorry i could not give you a working solution..are there any red lights near the console power button?

    numbers,contact details will be available on the webiste and check your suggestion to nyach and others is to call them again and tell them you have three red lights now on the console(RROD)..that way you wont have to pay up!its sneaky but 60 pounds is big money..they wll ask you the light status on the power brick..say green..have u made any modifications?say no..and the power is directly connected to the mains...rememeber the the missing red is in the upper right a google image screarch for RROD..i had three RROD failures so far..and never was the console checked for physically by them..i just got a replacement....hope u get urs running fast!

    it didnt work for me but it might work for you make sure you have no disc in the drive then turn off your console and hold y then rt [if you have a wireless controller make sure you use your controller to turn on the console] and keep hold of y and rt and turn on your console and this might fix it

Sound but no picture

Could be several things. Suggest you check the scart connection to the TV. Is it in the right socket? Is it fully plugged in? Have you selected the right input on the TV? Try a different Scart lead if you have one.

The Screen goes blank intermittently, but sound stays on.

Check all the solder terminals at the CRT base board. Check for any loose contact there. Unplug and re plug all the plugged socket once. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link. View it in "Timeslide" option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left corner of the display window. It will make search easy.

Rca tv is on it has sound but da screen is blank

You have posted your problem in standard televisions; haven't any model number at all, and posted a picture of a flat panel TV. Actually, what type of TV you have? Fault with flat panel TVs and standard picture tube type TVs are entirely different. Please provide exact model number or type of television. If you can give me some more details about the problem you faces with your TV, will be more helpful.

PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....

Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.

If PIP works, have you tried to swap pictures. You may have a tuner out.

Problems with my screen/picture

Sounds like a vertical sweep problem in the vertical output circuit, or the drive circuit. this is a solid state set and there are no user replaceable parts inside. Please play it safe and take the set in for service. Good Luck
