SOURCE: Ps2 slim won't start, plays intro sound and TV screen goes blank

I turn on the console: the disc spins, the led is on, the boot sound is played, but the screen remains blank. No further sounds are played as well (e.g. the Browser sound or the game's sound). The cable appears fine (since it plays the console boot sound).

SOURCE: PS3 Flickers on and off on the screen

Is could be your TV and not the PS3. When the resolution of the screen changes, you TV will flicker to adjust to the new resolution. My TV flickers in a similar way when playing games of lower resolution than my HDTV.

The play station turns on but the menu is not coming up. The wave line is on the screen of the TV


Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!

Try using another TV. If you don't get the same problem then it's the TV and not the PS3. You might also want to try changing the display settings so that you're using the correct outputs.

Dvd or game not playing


If this is an issue you have always had (meaning you just started using the system) it may be a resolution problem. If your PS3 is set to display movies or games in a resolution your TV can't handle, you'll get issues like this. Go into your video settings in the bar and check to make sure you don't have it set for something your TV can't do. My TV, for example, won't do 720p.

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!
