IF OTHER GAMES WORK ITS TE GAME CLEAN DISK

After click on the game title. screen goes black


It is normal for the screen to go black for a couple of seconds once you click on the game title.
Although, for some games, the screen goes black for a longer period of time than other games. Another important factor that determines for how long the screen goes black is the health of your disc.
First of all, it is advised that you exercise patience and wait for a couple of minutes before trying anything. During this period of time, the game is trying to load all the necessary files required to run the game.
On the other hand, if the disc you are trying to play is not very clear or has scratches on its surface, this could make the game go on a black screen for longer than normal. So to prevent this from happening, make sure that the surface of our disc is very clean and is free from dust or scratches.
If you wait for about 5 minutes and it still doesn't work, then you can try ejecting the disc to see if it automatically quits the game and returns to the home screen. If it does, this means that the disc is probably bad and you are advised not to try loading it anymore as it could cause damage to your console.
Although you can try resetting the console if it still behaves this way before you confirm that the disc is bad. Below is the instruction oh how to do this.
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using Fixya.

I bought a second hand one and although the console is working and you can hear the game loading nothing comes up on the tv screen. have tried different scart cable and tvs and still nothing.


try holding you finger over the power button for a while when you turn it on this will reset the video settings, it might be set to a video setting that your tv does not support by a previous owner, i have ran into this problem when taking my system to friends houses

My ps3 will play disk but i have no home start up screen. it appears black although you can hear the sounds as you scroll through the menu


First thing you should try is a manual video reset.

While the PS3 is off (red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, QUICKLY release.

That will reset the video.

Let me know if that works.

Call of Duty World at War ps3 will not start


Check the 24 Hz setting in the BD/Blu-ray setting area. Some televisions do not support this option. Turn it off. It will prevent blu-ray movies from playing.

You need to try to Update your PS3 from a memory card. Follow the directions on www.playstation.com to download the update using your regular PC and copy the update to a Memory card that has at least 120Mb of free space.

Go to www.playstation.com. Click on "Playstation 3", then click on "Playstation Network". Click on "System Update". Scroll to the bottom of that screen. Click on the next to last bullet called "Update using a PC" Follow the directions in detail.
