Try this. turn off the PS3, then turn the switch on the back to off. Then turn it on in the back then hold the power on switch till you hear i believe 2 beeps. If this doesn't work, then please answer the following questions.

Is it still under warranty?
What kind of connection do you have it connected to the tv with?
Have you tried anything else on these tv inputs?
Have you tried the PS3 on a different tv.

Let me know how this turns out.

When ever i try to play ps3 games on the mitsubishi hdtv 1080, the screen cuts to black with green hatchmarks. The PS3 home screen displays but as soon as i enter the game mode the screen goes black


Good day!

That is usually happens when the TV is not compatible to the PS3 because the graphics of the PS3 is very resolution.

The qualification standards of that TV is not reaching the higher resolution of PS3 even your TV is HDTV.

Thank you very much for using fixYa.

Wireless controller stopped working even with usb cable connected


Happened to me too. There's a small reset button on the back of the controller, you'll need a biro or paperclip in order to push it.

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!
