When i start up my ps3, it goes directly to a pink screen wit greenish streaks across it. Any idea to fix it ?


Did you hook it with HDMI or analog? My plasma was on the fritz but when i hooked it up analog it worked..ugly though compared to 1080P. Try a different HDMI cord as well

It doesnt matter what screen im on but my ps3 system will flash and flicker for a few seconds and then it will flash large pixel shaped boxes different colors every time. i have video of it happening in...


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

The PS3 backround screen changes each month, you can select a different color by going into your system settings. Options > Theme settings > Colour

My screen is blank and the contollers won't sync up


Sounds like it may be a video problem. Try reseting your system:

1. make sure the system is off

2 hold down the power button for 5-6 seconds, until you hear a second beep

You should be able to use it.

If that doesnt fix it, please let me know the serial number on your ps3, how you are connecting it to your tv (composite, hdmi etc) and the last time it was working and what you have done since.

I have the ps3.60.After switching on and putting in dvd(blue ray) the tv screen shows ps3 on the right of tv screen then the ribbon across screen but does not progress any further, almost as though frozen...


it may be that your ps3 automaticly loads the disc and has already started to play it and it might be trying to change the resolution(happens to me all the time) try un pluging your lead then plug it back in
hope this helps

If you can still hear sound make sure your video output is compatiable with the setting on your tv example dont try to put 1080i if your tv can only run 720i
