You could try resetting the grapics by holding down the power button until you hear 2 - 3 beeps. This may or may not help, it will set the video display back to default,

What's your problem?On going problems with Samsung R519 laptop after all the advise I tested laptop on separate monitor and it worked fine with no problems I bought new screen lead and still had p


The external monitor has proven there is no problem with the video graphics card, I'am concerned that customers have complained about faulty screens.
I have changed a lot of displays without issue, there is a major circuit board mounted behind the screen that plays a roll in picture production so if something goes wrong you get all kinds of symptoms from fuzzy images to multi color lines to a blank screen. I would suggest getting your money back because of his track record, also go online to Samsung and contact customer support and the technical department to see if something was over looked. Question! is this a new or used LCD display?

When i play a game on my ps3 the picture is fuzzy and i tried a different tv and its still fuzzy. and i tried the game on a friends ps3 and its working perfect.


The resolution is probably set too low. If you want to play in HD, make sure that you have a HD capable tv then go to Settings in the XMB. Select display setting and then select video output settings. Next, select your connector type (such as hdmi) and select the highest resolution that your tv can accept.

Ps3 freezes and screen goes fuzzy


Try to restore file system on your ps3.
Follow this guide.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

No picture or sound


Your display needs to be reset, Turn the ps3 off. Then turn the ps3 back on but continue to press the power button until you hear the beeps then it should work fine :)

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

The picture on the screen as all fuzzy and cant get a clear picture without having a shadow or it being fuzzy


Do you have a led or crt display? It could be just your display settings. Go to control panel /display properties /setting tab / and try changing the screen resolution. If no difference try the color quality. You can change the color bits without hurting any thing. Just remember what you changed it from and to.
If this doesn't help maybe you'll need a new screen.
