Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When i turn on my ps3 there is nothing on the screen.It just shows me resolution in left upper corner 576p and it stays black.if I try to turn it off it makes three bip sounds and I need to hold finger for a long time to switch it off.I can't turn it on using joystick because it is not reacting.I have tried to connect joystick via cable but it is same reaction-no reaction at all.I have tried to unplug it from the wall and to leave it for a few minutes but it's allways same thing.Before it was black I could see Home menu background but there was no home menu.Then I read on internet that if i wanted to restore original settings I should switch it on and hold my finger on it for at least 5 sec.I did it and it went black.Even with home menu background it didn't react at all.Can you help me please?Thanks.
I think i've found the easiest, hassle-free and no-cost solution. I phoned Sony Customer Support and
the person i spoke to was really polite and organised a
'striaight-swap' console-for-console. They are sending a courier to my
house with a new ps3 with the 40gb hard drive, similar to that in my
They said dont give them any cables, games or even the hard drive which you can take out and keep- they are quite literally swapping my old machine for a new one, which comes with a pre-fitted hdd.
I phoned them on Monday and they said it would arrive sometime on Thursday.
I strongly suggest anyone with this kind of problem to do the same - after all, no extra costs are required, only a few days without your console.
