Question about Sony Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

PS3 Slim powers completely down after 30 seconds- no video.

PS3 Slim 3001A turns on for 30 seconds then shuts off- no red standby light- completely off. No yellow lights flash. No video displayed on t.v. Cannot get it into safe mode. When hard drive is removed nothing on the screen shows up such as "hard drive not found". Tried new power cord, power supply unit and new power jack inlet. I don't think reflowing the GPU/CPU would help. I think it is power related, a short or something blown? What else should I try? Any particular components I need to be inspecting? Thanks!

It's gotten so hot it's like the yellow light of death but that's on the older models... It's in the CPU or gpu

SOURCE: Flashing red light

Go to you www.youtube.com and you may be able to find helpful videos on this. But if you bought it new it is under warranty and they will fix it. You just pay for shipping.

My ps3 does not transmit video or audio on any cords


Reset Video Output

If you are changing cables or cannot see an image on the screen, you may need to reset the video output to default settings. To reset the video output:
  1. While the PS3 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 PS3 beeps a second time (approximately 5 seconds), then release it.
  2. The PS3 will power up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

I have sound but no picture on my PS3


Did you recently move your PS3 from a HMDI wire to a composite wires?(Red white yellow wires) If you did then maybe you just need to reset your ps3 back to its default settings. All you have to do is power off your ps3 completely. Make sure it is in standby mode (red light next to the power button) Then hold down the power button for 30 seconds. The ps3 will start up with default settings. If that does not work, check your video cables. They might not be in, or they could be damaged.

Bought a new ps3 slim switched it on it comes up 576p not 1080i so cant get console to work can you help


Ok, you need to reset the display settings of the PS3. Carry out the following to do this -

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later

Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

The PS3 display will now reset to standard and you should be able to set it up properly in the display settings menu

Hope this helps

Play station three will not turn on on then off when power button is pushed.


First, old PS3 or new slim PS3?

The old models have a power switch on the back that must be on. You'll know its on if you have a red light on the front of your console.

To turn the PS3 on, press the power button. A light should turn green, and you're good to go.

To turn off the older PS3's, you must hold the power switch down for several seconds. For the new slim model, just press the button quickly.

Ps3 turns on but the welcome screen doesnt appear


Try a video reset. Turn the system off till just the red standby light is on. Then hold the front power button down till it turns on, beeps twice, then shuts down. Then just turn the system back on.

Ps3 slim won't turn on. I was playing Skate yesterday and I think downloading a Batman demo in the backround and the whole system just shut off mid-game. I pressed the power button and nothing. I unplugged...


Well, i agree 100% with what kennethrcalh said, but if you have no warranty, like me, you could try this solution. I've made it with mine and it is functioning perfectly now. Just open your PS3 Slim, take off the battery (model APS-250), open it and turn left (something around 10º) two capacitors, the OCP (Over Current Protection) and PFC (Power Factor Correction). Those adjustments solved my problem. Here is a video with a tutorial:
Good Luck!
