Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Black screen with a few colored pixels from start

I turn the unit on and immdediately the screen is 95% black with a few different colored small blocks scattered accross the screen.

That is it. I tried resetting and both AV and HDMI connections, but with no success.

Not sure if it is the mother board or what else could cause the problem.

Thank you for your time.

PS3 keeps freezing with colorful pixels. How can I fix this?

You need to use a vacuum and suck the back out or blow it out with air . While power is off on PS3 turn power on holding down the eject button it will blow it self out .

Wii has flashing lines across screen then turns black, stays black, and can't do anything. If i am able to turn it back on it does this again rather quickly

This needs to be professionally repaired.
The problem is in the systems video card
There are only a few people that can do the process properly and fix the system permanently.
the wii console is probably the most complex system to take apart and put back together properly without damaging anything internally due to the small nature of the unit.
if you need help getting this unit fixed please feel free to contact me

My PSP has a black inkspot mark on screen

Your PSP has a stuck/dead pixel...

Navigate your PSP's web browser to this url:


Leave that for a few minutes, in fact, turn your psp on it's screen to prevent seizures

If the pixel works, it was just stuck, if it doesn't work, it's dead (not a big problem, just replace the screen if you want all working pixels)

Black pixels on my Tv when I play Xbox 360.

It may be your cables, if you are using HDMI cables a low signal from the cables causes screen "garbage". Try using a different set of cables. I got my HDMI cable off for 5$ so they're not that expensive just read the customer reviews before ordering them.

Wii doesn't work

If your having this problem, its either a issue with your particular cables or with the system its self. (Usually its the system). Call nintendo, they will ask you to do some sort of troubleshooting and then if your within your year of ownership, they should offer you a free repair.
