Try putting display settings on automatic, if that isn't how you have it now. Much of the netflix material is 480 and you will get a blue screen if you only have 720 checked in your custom settings.

SOURCE: ps3 shuts down

It's a over heating issue. Make sure it isn't on carpet, in a closed cabinet, or any other enclosed area, also make sure it isn't next to a heating vent. Let it cool down for a few hours, and it should be ok.

SOURCE: Home screen shows only backround. No icons

Switch the PS3 off (Red Light). Hold your finger on the power button until the PS3 switches on and off. Take your finger off and hold it in again. It will come on. Hold it until you hear a double beep and take it off immediately. You will then be taken into a recovery menu. It will ask you to connect your controller via USB. Choose option 3 - Restore File System (Do not try any other option as it will erase some or all data on your HDD). It should work after this.

Hope it helps you.

I accidentally deleted netflix from my wii, and cant find it anywhere, how do i get it back?


You need to re-download it through the Wii Shop Channel. Go to the Wii Shop Channel from your home screen with all the channels on it (it has a shopping cart icon probably). Click on "Start Shopping", then "Wii Channels", then scroll up or down until you can find Netflix, click it. Download it to your wii. When it's done, it will show up on the home screen, and you can log into your netflix account.

There is a somewhat crappy youtube video showing how to do it:

You need to reflow your cpu and gpu with a hot air gun (cheap on ebay). You have begining signs of yellow light of death. Watch a video on youtube on how to take one apart.

My ps3 shuts down after two minutes. It won't turn on when I press the ps button on my controller. I don't get a blue light at all, and when I do turn it on I get a message that says it was turned off...


when that message appears press the PS button on your controller and your controller will turn on, follow the steps on the screen after shutting it down it should be back to normal, all you have to do is hold the O/I button for 2 seconds, it will turn off after that press the PS buton on your controller and it will turn back on

The green light on my ps3 works but my blue 1 doesnt show up


I had kinda the same problem, but my ps3 was able to get to the home screen. I never tried the problem out on a ps2 game, but when I put anything BlueRay into the system, I would also get that blank, blue AV screen. Because I was able to access my home screen, I looked around and found that I had corrupted data on my system. Now, I'm not sure how to get you back to your home screen, but if you're ever able to, the only solution that I found was to wipe the hard drive of the corrupted data, by going to the Game option on the home screen, then scrolling down to either Game Data Utility or Saved Data Utility. That's where you'll find it. Unfortunately, this will mean you'll have to wipe your entire hard drive of all your saved data.

I know it sucks, but I hope this helps...
otherwise have people look at it.
