Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

NO VIDEO I\'ve had this system for 15 months. It worked fine till last night when it just stopped working for no reason. When I turned it on, the TV screen was blank (Not blue-screened \"NO SIGNAL\"), it just showed a Grey screen. I reset it by pressing and holding the On/Off button but it did not work. I am sure it\'s not my HDMI cable because when I switched the cable to my dvd player, it worked just fine, and also the 4 red lights on my controller were blinking ... I took it (PS3) and connected it to my other TV (panasonic plasma), the same problem existed ...just a blank screen with no video

    Hi - same thing here.  One minute the DVD played fine.  An hour later nothing.  Just a black screen.  I did nothing different, and tried with several DVD's to ensure the one I was using wasn't faulty, but same thing.  Empty blackness.

The data on the card may have accidentally been erased or corrupted. It may have moved the data to the other card instead of copying. Try to copy it back to the card and see if it helps.

My touch pad worked fine last night, but now it doesn't! Help!


well, first you should see if it needs charging. Then turn on the ds and touch the little ds on the bottom of the screen. Go to the calibrate or the thing that is on the right side of the person. Try thr test and dont stop it until its over. Try touching the screen again but if that doesnt work call nintendo which the number is in the manual or find it at www.nintendo.com. See if that works.

No sound from hdmi cable


Go to the Sound settings in PS3 and be sure it's listed as HDMI and not Audio Video Cables.

Screen Goes Black When Game Is Inserted


Your laser could be bad, that is my idea for the situation. Your laser probably loads to a certain point and then just stops for some reason. You can try adjusting the potentiometers up 10 percent if your technologically advanced or try and replace the whole laser/drive.
