    ps3 turns on,video works, sound works, however the xross media will not appear and it continuously displays the playstation "wave" screen saver. It will not respond to any commands via wireless controllers, although it shows to be linked to them.

TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE GO TO THE SONY SUPPORT SITE ON THE INTERNET AND DOWNLOAD THE THE LATEST FIRMWARE, THEN LOAD THAT INTO THE PLAY STATION, REFER TO THE WEB SITE FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DO THIS ON YOUR GAME CONSOLE, IF YOU HAVE A USB PORT YOU CAN DO IT THAT WAY, IF NOT THEN YOU MAY NEED TO BURN A CD WITH THE UPDATED FIRMWARE. AFTER YOU ARE SURE THAT THERE IS THE LATEST SOFTWARE/FIRMWARE INSTALLED IN THE GAME CONSOLE AND IT STILL WON'T FUNCTION THEN YOU HAVE A HARD PART FAILURE AND YOU WILL NEED TO SEND IT OUT FOR REPAIR.

Hi,


This is a common problem in PS3. Before we proceed further with different tricks, Kindly update the Firmware and check if that would fix the issue.

If problem still remains, let me know for next steps.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?


I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

What Firmware your psp have?

  • Version check: On the PSP Menu (also known as XMB= Xross Media Bar), and goto ‘Settings Menu’ >> ‘System Settings’ >> ‘System Information’ and you should see version of your PSP.
Only PSP with Custom firmware e.g. M33 has Recovery menu and be able to run any homebrews apps - PSP ISO Games..

try to visit my blog all about sony PSP firmware and homebrew..
hope this help.

My playstation 2 cant display the video but you can hear sound


your first cord that is plugged into the tv is either messed up in the tv then, it is not connected or you yanked the cord instead of getting down and pulling the part about an inch from the tv and messed up the cord internally

My ps3 won't output 1080p properly.


it may be that your tv only supports up to 1080i instead of p. some tv makers have gotten away with saying that the 1080i is full hd. you may just want to change your settings to 1080i and see if that works instead. there is little difference that the human eye can see between the two formats as far as i know.
