SOURCE: PS3 start up problem

Hi,
if the hard drives are interchangable or replaceable, i,d give that a try. Other than that it seems as if the bios-eeprom or memory chips are acting up.
I remember MS having the same problems with the 360. Overheating issues. if your consoles are warranted, get them replaced. If theres any sort of setup disk with these consoles ( as bought-demo et,c ) try starting up with that In.

SOURCE: ps3 wont show up on tv

Hey i just posted i have the same problem as you do but then I checked the SONY PS3 website and it solved my problem. Try resetting your video output. I'll paste what it says on the PS3 website but if that doesn't solve your problem go to the website. They have a bunch of troubleshooting solutions for this problem...



If while manually changing the Video Output Settings, the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, you may need to perform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.

  1. Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
  2. Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks of the TV or display monitor.
  3. 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.
  4. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

SOURCE: 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

3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.

Had the fan for a year, recently plugged it in the rotating works the fan light turns green when I push it but nothing blows out. Shouldn't there be some air coming out of the fan? If so what makes it not...


Hello,
Either the fan motor went bad or the bearings are siezed so that the motor cannot start.
It is possible sometimes to get WD-40 worked into the bearings and get them going again.
If you listen closely you should hear the motor trying to start... if so then get WD-40 worked into the bearings at the top and bottom of the fan part. If there is no noise the motor is bad and the fan is junk.
