Mine does something similar, just for not as long. On mine it's because the resolution of the display is changing. As far as I know, this is normal behavior. Have fun, the PS3 is a great system!

The lights come on the playstation, but the screen stays black, and it doesnt read the controller, the controller just keeps blinking.


For the screen try making sure the cable is firmly connected to both your ps3 and your tv. For the controller, plug the controller into you playstation with a usb cord and then press the ps button.

What causes the screen to flash. While playing my PS3 the game black ops the screen will blink off and on over and over.


There are a few problems that could cause this. The first thing that comes to mind is a loose connection or a bad cable. Try replacing the cable. If that doesn't do it, press and hold the power button on your PS3 until you hear it beep a couple of times. Let go, then follow the step-by-step instructions on your TV.

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
