Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 Screen is blank

The other day the system went blank. I tried resetting it and the same things always shows up - a blank screen with no options. Even idf I put a cd, game or movie in nothing. I tried the av cables as well as several HDMI cables. Is this a hard drive issue?

    Did you just do a normal reset, power off power on?

When I'm told the system was not turned off correctly press ok then the screen stays blank


You corrupted your settings. Turn on the Ps3 let it power cycle, once you get to the blank screen hold down the power button until it beeps 3 times (about 25 secs) Your ps3 will shut off( note: if you have HDMI only, plug in your RCA connections as this will reset your ps3 display to analog) once you are back at xmb, plug in your HDMI and go to display settings and select HDMI. Always let your PS3 do its thing before shutting it down, its equivalent to unplugging your computer instead of logging off correctly.

You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

    Ps3 when i turn it on has a yellow screen and wont load games


    Try this:

    Turn the console to stand by, you can do this by pressing the power button for 10 seconds.

    When it is on stand by (a solid red light shows) hold the power button for 3 beeps, remove your fingers on the third beep which should be a double beep.

    This should take you to reset your console. You should see 6 options. Select option 2 then the system will go blank. Repeat the above but this time select option 3.

    Your PS3 should work after. Good Luck!

    Ps3 from wavy screen to blank screen at start up.


    Quick call and its fixed.... Whilst the PS3 is in stand by (red light on) press and hold the on button. Wait until it peeps slowly three times then take the finger off the button. This opens up a factory reset. Work from the top down and see which one fixes your PS3. For me it was a full reset, but at least it keeps your updgrades. :o(

    Some games won't instal


    I'd start with a System Restore.

    Go to SETTINGS, System Restore.

    This will set your PS3 back to factory default.

    If you have game saves copy them to an external usb drive or flash drive.

    Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.
