I get a black screen when I turn on my PS3. When I turn it on I do get the normal start up sound but the screen is black. The power cord is plugged in, the HDMI cord works (I switched 3 different cords...


Your PS3 may not be in HD mode. When you turn on your PS3 hold down the button until you hear a series of beeps. This will switch the PS3 to work with your HDMI. Now turn off and turn on the PS3 normally and you should have video.

I may be wring on the steps so check your manual or reference:

My PS3 doesn't read disks that i insert!


It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

In your caseme, best bet might be to get the whole drive.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Blank screen


this sounds like the flash memory of your ps3 has been damaged/edited. essentially your firmware has been messed up. only Sony can repair this, and it should be free of charge as it is a fault with their product
