Probably you have got problems with an important part of your hardware, such as GPU or RAM.
the only solution is taking the system to a support centre, they will check all hardware funcionality (must open the system for it) .

if your product is covered by warranty, don't waste time !!! call sony the latest you can. =]

Try this:

While the PS3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release power button, hold your breath ;)

I'm trying to play call of duty on my ps3 on my new lcd t.v. and it lags a lot.

The problem is not the PS3, but the reponse time of your new LCD. It sounds like you have a Tb with a 6ms or longer response time. This will make any video game seem to lag. The only solution is to get a faster LCD. Sorry for the bad news.

I turn my ps3 on but there is nothing just black screen .how i can fix this problem

First off, you should try turning your PS3 off and removing the HDMI cable from the back of your console. Plug it back in and then restart your console to see if this fixes the problem.

If this does not work then you will need to try a reset on your console (NB- this should NOT delete your save games, gamer profiles etc, but I'm not taking any responsibility if that does happen by mistake)

Put your PS3 into standby mode, then hold down the power button until a series of beeps are heard. Release the button then restart your console. This is actually in the PS3 user's manual too, and it is unlikely that anything is seriously wrong with your PS3.

If you want more information about how to fix the PS3 black screen then visit my free PS3 black screen repair blog.

I hope this helps you to fix your console,

The computer makes a loud beeping sound 5 times

Mass storage device is a usb drive, flash memory etc.
If you disabled the usb device, it will no longer work, that is why you do not hear the beeping any more.
You need to get the correct device driver for your usb so it works correctly.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

No sound from digital out on PS3 using optical cable

Does the end of the optical cable glow red when hooked up to your PS3 while the PS 3 is powered on? Look at it without the cable plugged into the STR-D845.

Sound issues

if you hold the power button when turing the PS3 on for i think 5 seconds and it will default the PS3 in to the outputs you have plugged in.
