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

when you next turn on your system you will have to quickly hold your finger down on the on/off buttons simutaniously for around 4-5 secs till you hear some beeping noises, hopefully this will start again with no problems.

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

You need to turn off the system with the "hard" button in the back of the unit, when you switch it back on hold the power button down for 15 secs, this should reset your vid settings.
