After an update for my PS3 my screen went black and my console won't come on. The green light comes on but there is no picture on the screen.


switch power back off, teun it on, hold power touch on the front down--> PS3 will turn on, keep holding until it turns off. when it turns off, take of your finger. hold down your finger again on the power touch, green light will blink, keep holding, you will hear one peep, then two peeps (when you hear the two peeps take off you finger); a menu will show up, chose restore factory default setting then ok, PS3 will restart, hopefully that will fix it

It turn off it self


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Red light blinking 6 Times means no Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, and so the set goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. You’ll need to open the back off the TV and check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206. If you want to do it yourself all this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components if not then you should always contact a qualified repair tech. for the same.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

TV has gone into "protect mode" to do just that to protect against the damaging failure that has been detected, you will need a servicer to diagnose the failure. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Green light, black screens, no sound, needs new battery???


The alarm is just a coincidence i suspect, green light comes on and stays on probably not the battery at fault. It would be red.
If the green light goes out and screens just flash one of your screens are at fault or a loose ribbon connection.

Screen goes black, but power light is on (not blinking)


The problem is not with your screen. Its the problem of Video Card of your system which is unable to send Video Signals to the Screen.
