Hi and thank you for using fixya:
You said you see a blank menu screen. What are the options on the menu? what do you see exactly. While your console is on press down the power button for 30 seconds to restart to factory settings.
That is actually a poor conclusion. There are three different lasers, one for blu-ray, one DVD and one for CD games all in one holder inside. It certainly CAN be the laser. The description id the DVD/Blu-ray part is having focus problems. Contact Sony for a service center that can install a new drive (It needs to be calibrated on install)
it sounds like your tv is being classified as insecure (some older models of hd tv as well as regular tvs do not always pass the "test" but will "pass it" on certin other occasions) it means that the ps3 may have determined that the tv can be used to rip the disk, if you are using hdmi try switching to s-video or composite. my ps3 did the same thing. I will try to remember how to fix it. untill then you can try my solution or try sombody else.
to reset the video settings you have to turn the main switch on the back of the ps3 then place your finger in the on sensor in front of the unit with your finger there turn the main power switch on the back of the unit the playstation turns on keep your finger there until you heard one bip and then remove your finger from the on sensor before the unit turns off if you keep your finger there for too long it will shuft off the unit so remove your finger once you heard the first bip and wait about 40 to 50 seconds some playstations take that long to restart after resetting the video card if this do no work try few times but if still not working then your graphics card is bad and sorry it can't be replaced
ok go to youtube and type" PS3 REPAIR/FIX" basicly what you do is put the ps3 on standby (the red light on) and then turn the main power off (the back switch) then hold the I/O button in the front (the on switch you use to put on standby) just hold it until it will go to standby then hold the I/O button again (the standby button) and then keep holding it until you hear one beep, then wait for two quick beeps. Then there should be a menu and select "Restore Defualt Settings". If it dosent work CONTACT SONY!
