I turned on my playstation but the screen stayed back.


Follow these steps:

The light needs to be red to start off with, with the light being red hold down the power button until you hear a double beep. You may have to try a few times until it does this, as soon as you hear the double beep release your finger from the button and you'll see a message on the screen that says "connect a controller with a usb cable and press the ps button." After you've followed those instructions you should see a menu with 6 options, you'll want to select option 3 "Restore File system."

This should solve your problem.

The lights come on the playstation, but the screen stays black, and it doesnt read the controller, the controller just keeps blinking.


For the screen try making sure the cable is firmly connected to both your ps3 and your tv. For the controller, plug the controller into you playstation with a usb cord and then press the ps button.

Turn off the PS3. Press the power on button (the system will beep) and hold it down for approximately 5 seconds until you hear a second beep. This will reset the video to the default. You should get a low resolution screen and be able to log on and reset the display to the desired settings.

My playstaion3 turns on but all i get is a black screen. Everything is connected...the remote wont even turn the system on. If it does turn on the screen is messed up and it freezes.


Ok first of all take out the Hard drive (under a cover on the bottom of the PS3) and reinsert it. Then connect the remote with the USB cable and when asked press the PS button. If it still doesn't work you are going to have to download the newest PS firmware from the PS website, put it on a flash disk (memory stick), put it in the PS3 and follow the instructions on PS's site to update the firmware.
