Excerpt from the PlayStation 3 Manual:

There is no picture on the TV screen.

*Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the system.

*There may be a problem with the AV cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PS3 system.

*If the video output settings on the system do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, with only the system and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

*If the resolution of the video content is not supported by the TV in use, when the video is played the screen may go blank. If this happens, go to the screen for selecting the resolution in the system's video output settings, select "Custom" and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

The wireless controller does not function.

*When using the wireless controller, you must pair it with the system and assign it a controller number. With the system turned on (power indicator on the system front is lit solid green), connect the system and the controller using the USB cable, and then press the PS button on the controller.

*Reset the wireless controller by pushing the reset button on the controller rear with a sharp-tipped object such as a pen.

Pairing your PlayStation 3 controller with another system will reset its frequency and you will need to pair it with your own again. If I recall, you cannot pair a controller through a USB hub, it must be a direct USB connection to the PlayStation 3.

Hi, we had a similar issue. We have 2 controllers, and all of a sudden we put a movie in and no picture or sound, yet we had sound and picture at the desktop. We initially thought it may be a lazer issues so bought a cleaner, funny thing was the cleaner disk had sound and visual. But I do also vaguely remember one of the controllers wouldn't work during this weird PS3 moment so changed it.

The lazer cleaning didn't work so we did a format, took approx 5hrs, and all movies/ games now play, but one controller will not work. It flashes all 4 lights, then goes off no buttons work, its very annoying, this happens with the USB cable and without. We tried everything except resetting it from the back of the controller (which I am going to try tomoz). We resorted to buying a new one and it paired up straight away so its something with that controller and perhaps our PS3 system.

Good luck, let us know if you find a solution

My tv works at my friend house, but doesn't work in my apartment. However all other electrical devices work at my apartment, model is (SLED5000)


Sounds strange indeed. All other devices; except the TV works fine with all power sockets at your house!! Just replace the power pin, at the end of the TV power cord and check. There is nothing more to check for you. It it too do not help you, contact any service technician. Electro help

01 Chevy Silverado 4 X 4 not working. 4WD light


Having the same exact problem but with my 1999 escalade. Thought it was the actuator bought a new one installed it transfer case would engage but front end wouldnt lock. Took it out of housing left it plugged in got a friend to go through all the 4wd for me and the plunger never moved out the actuator. Checked my wiring harness which is a four prong ann it had one hot prong like it is suppose to. Traced wires even replaced dash switch same problem. Taking it to local dealership tom to have it checked for codes. I was told it could be the transfercase actuator even though its workin that actuator is what sends power to the front to engage the actuator to lock the differential.

Startup trouble


Since you've efficiently tested the pc at other locations and have verified that it operates fine elsewhere, it's a matter of selecting your personal choice of problem from the following list:

- there's a ground problem at your outlet, the breaker is bad or the plug isn't connecting correctly in the outlet

OR

- the pc simply doesn't like you anymore and is expressing it's contempt through insubordination and 'in your face' actions as it makes you look like a liar to your friends. :)

Flashing "Washing" light on my frigidaire 1000 series dishwasher


Possible solution. I had the same problem of "washing" light flashing last year and now today. Warranty has been expired for awhile, so no harm in trying. What worked for my situation was removing the six screws for the back of the plastic control cover. Take of the plastic cover. There are are two connectors to the HANDLE with white and black wires. To be safe I would shut off the ciruit to the dishwasher. Safety first. Carefully disconnect and inspect the contacts inside the connectors. Do not insert any metal objects if you left the power on. I believe that the moisture from the dishwasher can degrade the connectivity. I cleaned the contacts with q-tips and re-installed. Be careful to not bend the contacts. If you had sound, you could hear my dishwasher running. Total cost is about three cents. I believe that the connectors do not full close when corroded, which prevents the completion of the circuit to the controlls. The flashing light indicates that the door is open, when in fact it is closed. Hopefully this will help someone. Semper Fi

Sony KV-32S40 32" TV problem


intermittent problems can usuall be liked to bad solder connections. And sony typically has some that will develop after a few years in the power supply. so check for bad sodler connections throught the main board & give a close look to the power supply & check you work after to make sure you have no shorted pins. good luck.
