Picture goes to a lime green fuzz and then no piture or sound!

Bought last week and worked brilliantly. Power (green) and blue ray lights are on. Wireless controller is working but as I have no picture/sound I have no idea where I am. I've switched off/on and changed games etc. When messing around with wireless controller occassionally picture and sound will return only to go blank again a minute later. Can anyone help please?

Re: Picture goes to a lime green fuzz and then no piture...

Which AV connection are you using? HDMI or the cable supplied with the PS3, If using HDMI, you have to set the PS3 visual settings to HDMI, to do this, use the cable supplied with the PS3, and have the HDMI cable plugged in. Then while using the cables supplied with the PS3, switch the settings over to HDMI, then change the TV's input selector to your HDMI and confirm the settings changes. Hope it helps take care

I bought an xbox 360 online that had RROD and was opened and fixed but now when i turn it on, the green light appears for a second then shuts off and my powerbrick goes from orange to red? what can i do to...

Sorry to be the bearer or bad news, but when an Xbox 360 goes bad it's never going to be the same again. I had fixed mine and it lasted me another two months until it happened again. After that, I was fixing it every week for three weeks till I got rid of it.
It may be "fixed" but it never lasts.

The playstation will not read games or Blue ray dvds, but will read regular dvd movies

Sounds like the blue-ray laser is dead. If it's still under warranty, call Sony for a repair. If you got the extended warranty from the store you bought it from, take it back there for a replacement.

Try powering on you unit press and hold the power button and the eject button for 30 sec unti the power light begins to flash thats going to reset the setting of your ps3, and if that does not work i would rec> sending it out so sony if its still under warranty or exchanging it from where u bought it.

No sound or picture for ps3

You both sound like you have an over heating issue. Mostly if the fan does not stay on. The PS3 always has a fan on, just the first setting is very quiet. Do you feel any air being blown out of the back (where the power cord goes in)?
