Black screen ps3 play


Where are you seeing the black screen?
If it is during game startup, then the game file could be corrupted:
Move selection to the game title that is causing the black screen and pres the triangle button for options, select "delete".

Then do a database rebuild (This also erases any messages, but will not lose game data or account info) -
Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off.
Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off.
Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times.
A maintenence menu screen should appear, from that, select "rebuild database".
When it is finished, it should automaticly restart.
Then go to Playstation Store and re-download.
Reinstall and run to get it to update the game again and it should work fine.

If you mean that you only get a black screen when you turn on your PS3, then it could be set to the wrong video output. To get it to automaticly detect your video, use the procedure to get to the maintanence menu and it will display text asking for video setting:
Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off.
Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off.
Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times.
Text should appear saying whether it detects HDMI video or not, if you see the text, then select "yes", otherwise simply wait a moment and it will switch to composite automaticly.

Far cry 3 keeps on trying to update and wont play


Slow internet connection, or corrupted files.
I have no solution for a slow connection, but for corrupted files, select the game title in your game list (which may only show up while disk is inserted), then press the triangle button for options and select "delete".

Then do a database rebuild (This also erases any messages, but will not lose game data or account info) -
(To rebuild databse)
Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off.
Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off.
Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times.
A video detection message should appear, select "yes" if you can see it, if not, the screen will automaticly switch to composite video after a short moment and then go to the PS3 maintanence menu. From that, select "rebuild database".
When it is finished, it should automaticly restart.

Reinstall and run to get it to update the game again and it should work fine. If not, then repeat this solution, but also look for any related game data files after deleting the game itself. You may lose any saved games, but any other progress sould resync from the PSN servers once the game is reinstalled.

My ps3 games get stuck coming but game still plays


Have you tried using the force eject technique?? Hold the eject button down for 10 seconds and you should hear it beep a few times.
If you have tried this and it still doesn't work, then is there any noise when the button is pressed?? If there isn't then I'd say that the disk drive motor is broken and a new one might be needed.

I have two seperate playstation 3 consoles. One works just fine, but did not include the audio/video cables. The other one will not read blue ray disks. The cables from the one that cannot read disks will...


Ok, for the one that does not show the home screen, try this :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again about 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep.
Step 3. The PS3 should now come back to life on the screen.

What this has done is basically reset the PS3 display back to standard definition.

If this does not work please reply here and I will try another solution with you.

Thank you for using FixYa

I wanna know why my ps3 wont play games or show the disk icon


Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

Mid game my console beeped and shutoff. Now it wont eject disk or turn on at all. Light goes Green, Yellow then flashes Red


your PS3 overheated, what you need to do is remove the power cable and hold the power button for 5 seconds to make sure that there is no power left, then plug it back in and press the eject button hold it down, it will power up and eject disk, if that fails, you need to RMA your ps3 to sony or you can try and return it to vendor with the game case or dvd case of the disk that is stuck they should replace both

My PS3 wont turn on it just flashes a yellow light then red light that beeps cant get disc out


I found a way to eject the disk:
  1. Power off the PS3 on the main switch on the back of the console
  2. Press and hold the Eject button
  3. Turn on the main power switch
  4. The PS3 LED will go green and the fan will spin at max speed
  5. Wait a few seconds and press the eject button a couple of times, the disk should now eject
  6. watch the PS3 die after 30s or so…
This procedure did not fix my PS3 but at least I got my disk back before sending it to Sony for repair.

Playstation 3 broken!


what probably happened is when you dropped it which why was it dropped in the first place. the track that ejects the disk was probably knocked out of place resulting in the problem with the ejecting of the disk. the only thing that i can possibly think of is to check for screws and open up your ps3 then check the disk ejection system and see what was jumbled around. hope this helps dude.

Your unit may be damaged. Turn the unit off, unplug it, wait 30 seconds, plug in, turn on, press power button. 
If you have the same issue, call sony support for hardware repair.
