    I am also having the same problem. we already went to the service center earlier, thinking that it had something to do with our power plug, but when we went there, it was working. so what we did was we just bought a new power cord thing and we had it tested there and brought it home. and then we tried it at the condo, it wasn't working! :( we tried every socket at home and we also did this suggestion in the post earlier. no lights or anything. :(

    please help. thank you

First thing to try is unplugging the power cable and plugging it back in firmly, it sounds simple but always start at the beginning so to speak. Next unplugging everything except power and switching it on again. If it switches on start plugging in one connected device at a time, starting with the video cable, and switching back on. This will eliminate any connected devices (memory card, controller Etc.) as causing the problem and allow you to track down one that is causing the problem. Make sure there is no disk in the drive, if there is take it out and switch off and on again. Message back if this is no help.

    If you don't explain in what way I wasn't helpful I can't help further, do you mean you had already tried all this? Do you mean you tried this on the basis of my advice and it didn't help? Or do you mean my info wasn't clear enough?
    At least give us a chance to help before arbitrarily giving out bad ratings.

Ps3 output rainbow blocks and screen flashes


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

Red Light won't turn on


The temperature inside the system may be too high. Touch the power button on the system front to stop the flashing and then leave the system turned off until it cools down. After it has cooled down, turn on the system again. PS3 should turn on.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Try resetting the video output. Follow the steps below:


  1. Before changing cables, make sure the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 (the 0 side is pressed down).

  2. Unplug the power cord of the PLAYSTATION 3 and television (or display) from the wall socket.

  3. Make sure the AVI cable is connected to the [AVI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.

  4. Connect the other end of the AVI cable into the [AVI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.

  5. Plug the PLAYSTATION 3 and television (or display) back in to the wall socket.

  6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 back on (the line on the power button is now pressed).

  7. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.

  8. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

Thank you for using fixya!
