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

Then wanted to charge me 149.00 to fix, So I went to you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pjjnz0AlMk , and the had me turn system off and then on , hold button on PSP3 system down for 3 beaps the light stays red , then take your finger off and hold for 3 beeps the first beep dosen't count. their will be a menu pop up and select menu item 3, and it will tell you your harddrive is corrupt, select restore, I had to do this twice and now my palystation is working and I don't have to pay Sony a dime. Check You tube for issues, I found a lot of great help there. Hope this fixes this for you as well.

Guys i've already done the reballing thing on my ps3 but everytime that i want to turn on my ps3 always come the yellow light.. then the ps3 turn off again... but if i repeat this turn on/off thing...

What it sounds like to me is that you ether have something wrong with the Power Supply or the mainboard its self.

If you are not sure which power supply to get let me know the model of your PS3 so I can tell you the right power supply to get.

Hello, what you are describing is unfortunately called the Yellow Light Of Death (YLOD). Although you have not technically got the yellow light as the console manages to stay on for a minute or so it is still exactly the same problem. When the PS3 was originally made Sony used lead free solder in their consoles. Lead free solder is not as flexible as normal leaded solder and over time due to expansion and contraction because of heat given off by the console's components hairline cracks formed in the solder joints between the CPU and GPU and lots of PS3's failed. You have got a couple of options, you can either have the console professionally repaired which is going to cost around £50. If the console is out of warranty Sony will only replace it for a cost of around £130. As a last resort if you are good with electrical items you might want to have a go at repairing it yourself. If you google YLOD you will find plenty of guides that will instruct you on how you can repair it yourself.

Please bear in mind that once a console has the YLOD there is NO guarantee as to how long a repair will last, it could be a couple of hours to a couple of years


Hope this helps

I have a samsung rear projection tele. I havent used it for 12 months, i have just plugged it back in and the red standby light comes on at the front of the tele. When I press the power button on the...


means B+ over current protection shutdown. Problem in power supply.
However since it was not used for 12 months
the problem could be that the fan that cools the bulb is not starting when you turn the tv on. Blow on it to get it going or clean with compressed air. The fan could be clogged up with lint etc. It's on the rear left of the tv.

My ps3 console froze and shutoff while playin dantes inferno.disk wont eject


If your PS3 has frozen then you will need to fix ti - this is caused by overheating on the main chips. To do this you can use a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will do it for you.

MY SCREEN IS BLANK MY TV IS NON HDMI AND SO WAS


  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

2 LIGHTS ON CONSTANTLY WON'T LOAD GAMES


make sure there is no disc inside first as stupid as it sounds people do do it, when you go to turn the ps3 on hold down the eject button b4 you press the power one then turn the power on whilst stil holding the eject button, if this does nothing when you turn the ps3 off hold down the power button this should reset its settings which can be the cause of no display on your tv

No picture or sound


Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. 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. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. Make sure the TV is on the correct seting. i.e. Video 1, Video 2, etc.

3. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
