    Please clarify "it does play games". The PS3 it a bit tricky when it comes to the settings. For example, if you set it up to use the HDMI port on a certain tv it will not work on any other port until you change the setting to that port. You would have to hook up to the HDMI tv and make the changes for the tv you are going to for the PS3 to work.

Try booting it up without a game in it. It will autorun a game, and skip that screen.

Check your sound connections to your TV, also you will have to select the proper Sound Out in the sound options. Make sure its set for the type of cables you're using.

Precautions Concerning TV Screen Damage (Image Retention)
Some televisions can be damaged when a stationary image is maintained on the screen for long periods of time, as this could potentially "burn" the stationary image into the screen. This image retention can result from a variety of sources, including test patterns, VCR on-screen programming screens, or picture-in-picture boxes. Playing video games with stationary images or patterns, or leaving video games on hold or pause, may also lead to this type of damage.

Before using your Nintendo system with any TV, especially front and rear projection type TVs, be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find out whether video games can be played on the TV without damaging it.
When taking a short break, place the game on pause and turn the TV off until you are ready to play again.
If you are not sure about your TV, contact the manufacturer of the TV for more information.
Neither Nintendo nor any of Nintendo's licensees will be liable for any damage to your TV.

Projection TVs (front and rear):
Due to their design, front and rear projection TVs can be more susceptible to image retention. Remember to be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find out whether video games can be played on your TV without damaging it.

High-Definition TV's (HDTV):
Projection style HDTVs display the image in much the same manner as other type projection TVs and as such, the same possibility of image retention exists. HDTV's that use a tube screen should be no more susceptible to image retention than standard TVs that use a tube screen. For either type of HDTV, follow the precautions on this page.

Plasma TVs or LCD Screens:
We have no information on Plasma TVs or LCD type TVs. Since image retention is a variable of the TV, please check your TV manual or contact the manufacturer directly before connecting any video game system to your television.

Try resetting your PS3 video/audio settings.

ress and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.

Wii "invalid format"


Back-up games cannot be played until you get your Wii modded. if you didn't do this yet, you cannot play them. Your TV has to do nothing with it, its the format you put on the CD.


Tip: Try to use Verbatim disks, they can be read on the Wii.

Tip: You need to put the file on the disk as a ''.ISO'' format.

X box 360 when playing a game red lines run horizontally down the screen and flicker. on the pause menu everythings ok. and tv ok, this happened on fallout3 and tried GTA still there


This sounds more like the video connection. Is it hooked up through HDMI or the component cables. If possible try the other, or see if you can borrow a friends and try to swap to see if that fixes. Also see if there are different ports you can try on the tv.

Playstation 2 will load the game, but then only show black screen


You might of had one of the wires connected from the TV to the PS2 damaged and may need new ones or just make sure that the wires connecting each other from the TV to the PS2 are well connected. My little brother use to drop my PS2 a lot too and that happened to me once, but it turned out to only be that the wire got pulled too much when it fell and it disconnected from the TV to the PS2 and I had to only put it in well.
