I suggest you take a look at one of the online guides on how to repair the Yofd so you can see the taking apart of the system and see if any of the ribbons are disconnected or damaged in your system

The hardware has become damaged.

There are a number of things within the PS3 that can very easily go wrong if you drop it.

The hard-drive, the very sensitive calibrated blu-ray disc drive, lasers, magnets, all kinds of things.

You need to call Sony support and send it away to be repaired or replaced.

If you're still in warranty then this will be free. If not, it cost a friend of my £80 a couple of months ago.

PS3 problems At home I have a new samsung hd 1080p TV that I normally use for my PS3. I will be in a hotel outa town for the next couple of days and I wanna watch a movie using my PS3. In my...


I had the same problem, stuck in a hotel room for 2 days. When I held down the button, next time I turned it on, I got the same prompt with using HDMI output, said yes, and screen went black. However, a screen then came up asking if I could see the image or not, but it has a 30 second time limit before it saves those setting, you have to click "No" on this screen, and it will drop the resolution to 780p instead of 1080 and it should work! Make sure you're paying attention so you don't miss the screen!

Sound but no picture on PS3 using AV3/4


if it's happening with your ps2 and your ps3 on teh same tv, try it on a different tv. if you're getting sound but no picture, tehn it's something with your cables or your tv. restting the display setting should get your picture back up. make sure the system is in standby and then hold down teh power button. it will turn green and beep, then flash green and beep again. it should brng up a picture. if not, check your component cables, especailly if it works with the original cables.

It has sound but no Picture


This is because of a resolution problem. Just hold the power button for 5 secs, it will reset the PS3 and you will be able to see the picture.

THE PS3 SCREEN STAY BLACK EVEN WHEN THE CONSOLE IS ON


Hi, I can help you but i need you to turn everything on and at that blank black screen insert any Disc wait like 2 seconds and tell me if the top right hand corner if theres a small loading icon looks something like a water drop ripple that pops up. If so i had the same exact problem, they way i fix mine is I replaced my HDD (2.5 SATA drive) which is located on the left side of the ps3 when layed down horizontally if you didnt know already. I went ahead and bought a new 2.5 SATA drive and replaced it with my old one that was causing the problem, most likely is caused buy corrupted data files. HOpe this helps

My ps3 will blink the tv screen on and of


Mine does something similar, just for not as long. On mine it's because the resolution of the display is changing. As far as I know, this is normal behavior. Have fun, the PS3 is a great system!

PS3 no picture on screen. Borrowed Unit from a friend.


If the TV was originally set up on an HDTV via HDMI cables you'll have to reset the video/audio outputs on the PS3. When you turn the PS3 on hold your finger down on the button until it beeps a second time, then remove your finger and let the console restart. That should reset the PS3's video output.

JVC LT-32DS75SJ issue with HDMI


Try this

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect PS3 to TV HDMI input
3. select TV HDMI input for PS3
4. turn OFF PS3 if it is ON
5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.

Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.
