Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (80GB) Console

1 Answer

PS3 image keeps scrolling and is in black and white

Ok, so my family and I are in the US for a couple of months and my brother brought his PS3 but somehow managed to forget the power cable. So we went to GameStop and bought a new one but a US one. When we plugged it in the only thing we seem to be able to get is a scrolling image of the game and it's in black and white. No matter what I do that's seems to be the best we're getting. Now I wasn't in the shop when he bought the new cable but apparently the guy said something about it might not work because of the difference in the UK voltage compared to the US. Also I've been looking up a lot of stuff and I was reading about how the tv might be NTSC and the PS3 is on PAL or something but I don't think that's anything to do with our problem. Although, I could be completely wrong. It's a rented house we're in and the tv's are pretty old. We're having the same problem with both tv's. I am really confused as to wether it's tv problem or a PS3 problem. I really am a novice with all this as you can probably tell. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I am an Australian ( 240v) and I took my PS3 to the Caribbean (110v - same as the US) and it worked fine as far as power concerned. However as I had the PS3 set to work on my TV back home (PAL) when I took it over there & plugged it in (NTSC) I had a similar problem. I fixed it like this: when the PS3 is turned off hold down the power button for 15-30 seconds it will reset the PS3's settings to defult and it should work on the system that it's connected to. Hope it helps

Brother hl3040cn. I have replaced black cartridge it now says other 3 need replacing. Was printing ok before black ran out; not printed colour for long time. thanks


This printer tells you to replace the toner when there is still plenty left. You can override this as follows:-
1. Open the top cover
2. Press "Secure print" and "Cancel" together
3. This brings up the cartridge menu. Press "OK" twice for each entry, then scroll down to the next one. There are two entries for each colour, dunno why.
4. When you've done all 8 entries shut the lid and print.
This may need to be redone every few months.

Black and white display screen


If you have an HDTV use HDMI or component to connect to get colour...if you have an SDTV and use the RGB cables unfortunately the PS3 will output NTSC signals for JApan/NA and your SDTV will accept PAL signals (EU). THere may be an adapter, but if you have an HDTV this problem should solve itself via HDMI/component cables.

No black ink prints but colors almost perfect


Sorry, no good news: Infact you need a new printhead. The refill ink has clogged the filter inside the head which is in front of the nozzles. Another reason could be: Did you unplug the printer from power in those weeks of none use? If yes, the head has dryed out. In future: Do one simple test print once a week when you dont use the printer too often. That keeps the nozzles going :) There is some hope, too: See here how to fix it on your own http://www.fixya.com/support/t209702-get_color_print_black_works_fine (Following the link given to hstt.net : choose mfc 215c inside)

Yes there is. Unless there is a systems mode to turn the reception to PAL, you will not be able to use this set there. Good Luck
