Ps3 shorted out

I have had my ps3 for a lil over a year, about 2 weeks ago I moved the ps3 back to my room (where i normally have it hooked up to a surge protector) When I plugged the system in I saw a spark and there was no picture at all only sound. The T.V. works perfectly fine and I treid hooking the system up to another tv and still nothing. Can someone please help me with this problem, I paid way too much and it is no longer under warranty.

All i can suggest is turning your ps3 off then bak on again, wait til the red light is on then hold it on til it beeps twice. This will restore it back to factory defaults.If nothing happens the you can try ringing sony. If they cant help then i guess youll have to buy a new one. Hope this helps.

DENON AVR-1912 PS3 ISSUE


You might just have a handshaking issue between your PS3 and your receiver. See if there are any firmware upgrades for your PS3, Receiver or both. This usually takes care of the problem. If not - your receiver has a 2 or 3 year MFG Warranty. Have it checked out or exchanged.

PS3 not working on reg tv's after HDMI use on LCD HD tv


Shelley,  the fix for this is simple! Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and the system will beep. This resets the video setting for your ps3 from HD too whatever the current cables are that you are using too hook up too the tv. This works on my PS3 which I just bought about 3 months ago and should work with the older ones.

1st 80Gb ps3 model gets hot really fast..


Make sure that your not placing your system on any sort of carpet or rug this will cause the system to overheat. Also check the fan on the back of the system and make sure that the fan is clean and not full of dust and other sorts of stuff. If this does not stop then i would go buy a cooling fan for it just to make sure it dont fry the motherboard!!
