Start with a manual reset.

While the PS3 is off.

Hold down the power button until you hear two beeps, then quickly release.

Your PS3 will reset it's video back to it's default settings.

If you still have problems.

Ps wont turn on


This is a growing problem with PS3s and is similar to the Xbox 360's Red Ring of Death (RROD).

If it's under warranty send it back for repair, if not then contact Sony for further support and options for repair.

You can try searching the gilksy method on a search engine or look it up on You tube. This is a DIY method. Some people have had success with it, but it’s far from a “professional” fix.

If you want it done professionally, I know that in the US Knight’s Gaming Repair is a reputable source, and in Canada Console Repair Guy is good.

Hope that helps!
