Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 went from a "snowy" screen to a black screen. HELP PLEASE!!

I tried turning on my PS3 today and it would turn on. After awhile (maybe 45 secs) the screen would become "snowy" soon after it would freeze. I moved it to another tv, same thing happened. I am not using a HDMI cable, or a hi def tv. After I retry it (turning it off after i flip the switch) it would go back to the display screen. Any Ideas?

Hi..
Two or more things, first make sure you have your audio vidio cables correct

Yellow= Video
Red= Audio right
White Audio left

Also make sure that the tv matches the input your cables are connected into. I would make sure the restart the PS3 to make sure the video is good (after checking the tv input)

It may have the changed somehow, try turning off your ps3, wait 10 secs, turn the ps3 back on and do not release the power button until you hear the beeps, it should reset your display.

Ps3 light on but freezes


Hey ok wait a sec so nothing is displayed on the screen?
Does it power off or down?
Ok it sounds like a simple setting error..
Turn system off then on and let the red light show up.
Then push the power button down for 5 sec and/or wait until it beeps.. it will reset itself and turn back on.. still nothing? do it up to 10 times and let me know if this is not the issue thanks!!
