My ps3 stopped showing picture ,it was working i turned it on i saw user screen then nothing,already replaced video cord


try video reset

when ps3 is in standby mode(red light)
press and hold the power button till you hear a second beep.

standby mode press hold power........"beep"......"beep"..release power button

then try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

Ps3 blows fuse at plug


Cocodinaro,

It sounds like you're using a damaged power strip; however, this issue can be caused by a bad outlet.

Replace the fuse and plug the unit into a different outlet. If the fuse blows, you need to go to a video game store an purchase a new power strip.
