My Ps3 wont turn on


Does the PS3 turn off?
If it stays on but you have a black screen, is it possible you have your tv set to the wrong channel?
Are you able to hook up your PS3 to another tv...preferably one that you know will work...such as a friend's tv that also has a ps3

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.
