My ps3 would turn on and you can here the sound but you cant see the menu picture or anything and ive tried the holding down on the switch with the double beeping and everthing and it brought me to a...


Hi, you may have a problem with the lead give it a good wiggle all the way from the ps to the telly if that dont work try and borrow a friends lead to rule out the lead being the problem, if it still dont work then try the following to reset the console.

This is how to fix it:
1)turn your ps3 -off- by the switch at the back
2)turn it back -on- again by the switch at the back only
(there should be a red light now)
3)now -hold- your thumb on the power button located on the front for a few seconds until the ps3 turns itsself on and off.
(during this process there will be about three beeps spaced apart,and after that the light will return to red)
4)finally hold your thumb on the front power button again and you will hear two beeps then a double beep.
-IMPORTANT-
After you hear the double beep take your thumb off the button before it shuts itself down again.
5)once you have done that you should see the picture.

if after doing the above it still dont work then this would indicate it has over heated so try the following.

1 switch the ps3 off and leave it off for at least an hour
2 remove all leads from ps3 and tv
3 make sure the ps3 is not being used on carpet or on top of dvd player or sky box as this will cause it to over heat very quick
4 make sure all the air vents are clean and have no dust vac them out if needed.
5 make sure the ps3 has got good air flow around it and not stuck inside a shelf thats blocked off at the back as this to will cause it to over heat.
6 now plug it back in and give it a try.

if it still dont work then this would indicate the gpu chip has over heated and has probably fried.
if you have any warranty left on it take it back as this fault is covered by warranty.

i fix these for about 25 pound plus parts so you need to shop around and see if you can get it repaired, their is no guarantee the repair will work as their is always the chance that it has over heated that much that it has cracked the solder joints that hold the chip onto the circuit board.

im in uk and we do offer a repair service so if your in the uk and would like it repaired you can give me a shout back or if you need further assistance just give me a shout back.

let me know how you get on ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My xbox 360 has no picture but sound only no red lights green ok


First take off my hard drive on the 360. Then plug it to the tv not with HDTV (use the red, yellow and white make sure it is on tv not HDTV) because it will not work for HDTV setting . then plugit into the wall with the 360 laying down not up and down and turned it on. (no picture but sound) with the 360 on take 1 towel fold it long ways and wraped it around 360 from back to front (make sure you cover the fans in the back to make it over heat.) leave your 360 on until it red rings (you can hear the 360 quit down. it takes about 15-30 mins depending on how fast it over heats. once this happens unwrap the 360 and turn it off wait 5 secs and power it back on and there you go you should have picture and sound again. if you still have problem you can now can send it to get repaired since there is a 3 year warrenty for red ringed 360's.

My xbox 360 has no picture or sound


Check your Monitor. if you are not getting the Red lights in front of the Xbox360 then nothing wrong with the wires.
you can try another Xbox360 cable goto you local store buy one, and test it, if the same result you can return the cable abit of a hassle though.

But usually when the cable are bad the red will flash in front of the Xbox, otherwise test the monitor or the TV with something else.

if all that checks out, then perhaps the XBOX360 is just plain dead.
they usually last about 4 years anyways. DVD drive goes bad. Video could be bad. hard to say

No picture yet i can hear sound green effect before it happend


First thing would be to make sure that you're only using the yellow, red, and white cables, but seeing as how you said you had picture before, I'm guessing that's not the problem. The 360 uses an automatic recognition for the hardware to make sure that it is set to the right input. So, in essence, it won't be that the settings were changed. I would say go pick up a new cable and see if that's the problem, it sounds like it is. If the cable doesn't solve it then I would say it's time to call Microsoft. For the guest with nothing working, call up Microsoft, I really don't know what else the problem could be except for hardware.

No picture and no sound, but everything is still connected and running!


how old is this xbox360?? did you buy it new or used??

if it new i would return it to the store where youve bought it.

if its old, then perhap it overheating. trying putting a fan on it or blowing some compressed air in the holes where the fans are usually by the power plug.

if the cpu over heats you'll likely to have trouble and problems
