Hi, Ive never had a problem with my playstation 3 before but yesterday whenever I turn it on and put the tv on, the playstation home part doesnt come up. I just have a black blank screen.
I tried it on...
Hi First thing to try is to turn the console off, unplug it, wait 5 minutes, plug it back in and try again. If that doesn't help then turn it off again, preferably from the switch on the back, then turn the power back on, then press and hold the power button in the front until you hear 2 beeps, when the 2nd beep comes, let go, if you don't have picture, turn it off and then turn it back on, if you still don't have picture, try different cables, and outputs on the console. If your console still remains blank, the last thing to do is a factory reset. You will lose your saved games etc, this is the last step to do before you send it off to sony for repair / exchange. Again note that you MAY will lose your settings and game saves.
Power off the console with the power switch in the back and power back on.
Hold power button on the front until you hear 3 beeps
You may need to connect with AV cables instead of HDMI
then go through the initial setup -- if your picture comes back at this point, you may be able to return to using the console normally.
If you are not able to use the console normally then continue to do a full format via system > format, it will take around 3-4 hours.
after the format is complete your console is restored to factory defaults, it should work normally if it does not, then you have a hardware fault that requires service. If your console is still blank, you most likely have a hardware fault that requires service, sony will repair / replace the console for 150USD in USA, if you are another location please contact your local sony.
