Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System

1 Answer

Screen goes black, hdd light not showing

When moving from one area to another on a game (between levels, finishing a deathmatch and going back to the menu screen, etc.) the screen goes black and the yellow light cuts out. tried several games, seem to be the same problem with each one. also happens when quitting a game from the xmb menu or putting the system to sleep.

I'm sorry, I can't help you. My own problem has never been resolved. I sent in more information like they asked and they never got back to me. I quit playing the game because I had paid for a joker, successfully completed the game, was told I moved up a level. Then the screen said there was a techical problem and I lost going to the next level. I had been on Level 134 for a long time and
was excited about finally moving up and then I was denied it.

Another stange graphic problem


This may be an indication of the graphics processor overheating. When the card overheats it tends to leave artifacts like black dots. Newer games typically put harder stresses on consoles than older titles. This would also explain why the dots aren't showing up in menus, menus don't require as much juice as game play. I would blow out the system with some canned air and try playing the system in a cool, well ventilated area to see if that helps. Sometimes this can be a permanent issue with the graphics processor and you would need to send it in to Microsoft.
