Dropped PS3 won't send signal to TV

I dropped my son's PS3 on to a hard wood floor from about a foot up. It was not dropped at an angle or on its side, just straight down. It doesn't appear that anything is loose inside because there are no rattles. Now when he powers it up, the green light comes on normally, there are no weird sounds or anything, but the TV does not read the signal. He has already disconnected and reconnected everything to make sure all connections are tight. Any ideas? Thanks...

    No. He has it connected with component. We've tried holding down power button for several seconds, waited for two beeps, but still the tv is not receiving the signal from the game console.

SOURCE: my ps3 was dropped by accident and now it wont

Anytime something electronic is dropped its usually a cracked board that is the result which is why your ps3 now is acting crazy doing weird things.

I personally think its a goner cause the board probably has hairline cracks in it and that will affect how the system runs.

My wifi connection has dropped off my tech wood tv. I've tried lots of menus but cannot connect again. How do I reconnect this?

Try checking the signal strength. If your tech wood tv does not display your SSID (network name), check the router. If you have another device which picks up the WiFi signal, this is indication your TV is the problem. If your router is located at a long distance, maybe you need to relocate your router in a centralized lactation within your home.

How to reset the lepan wont come on after charge all day

That is very common with Le Pan.

1) do you get a charge light?
2) Do you have to hold the charger on an angle to charge
3) Has it been dropped?

If yes to two or more of these questions it sounds like you need to bring it in for service. You can bring it in directly to our shop for a FREE evaluation or send it to Le Pan for repairs... sounds like it either it has been shocked through a surge or drop and/or charge/DC jack is damaged.

My son dropped my 32'' inch LG lcd tv now it won't

It probably has a cracked circuit board. If you want to repair it on your own open it up and see if you can find where that cracked section is and see if you can resolder it back properly.

My PC recognizes my hard drive but it's making a ticking sound & it won't re-format. I'm running Win7 & have tried both reformat settings-NTFS and exFAT but there is not action at all....

I'm sorry to hear that your hard drive is having trouble. Based on your description of the "ticking sound" and the fact that the drive was dropped, the drive is probably physically damaged. Unfortunately, this means that your drive is failing in a way that isn't fixable; it will have to be replaced.

I have dropped my sons PS3 and says NO SIGNAL , it turns on and can hear it working inside , the light is green

You can try a video reset.

While the PS3 is off (solid red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep. Quickly release. You'll hopefully see the screen flash and then you'll hear the PS3 chime.

Let me know if that works.

Hard Drive Dropped

Turn off your computer and then plug in the FreeAgent external drive. Then try turning your computer on, it should read.  If it doesn't I would go to the Seagate website for troubleshooting.
