Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Unplugged unit I went out of town for a week so I unplugged all my components from the wall cause I knew we would be getting some severe weather. Came home last evening plugged everything back into the wall, everything works beside the PS3. All I see is Sony Entertainment with a grey/white wavy line PS3 controller doesn't work, no picture, no network. Any suggestions

When it is powered off hold the power button on the console for about 15 seconds, that resets the video settings.

My refrigerator was moved away from the wall and unplugged for 2 weeks. They just moved it back and plugged it in. The displays light up, the lights come on but it is not cooling. What should I do?

Leaving it unplugged for 2 weeks should not have caused any problems. The fridge may have been on a defrost cycle. As the unit is unlikely to have had any frost, it should have started refrigerating about 15 to 25 minutes after plugging it in.

Unit powers up, then off 3 times before completely shutting down. At that time, the unit has to be unplugged from wall to try another time,

Unit will not turn on without be unplugged for several minutes. Even the red indicator light goes off as if it has no power.

Sounds like main power regulator board [SMPS] fault. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

Playstation won't send HDMI signal to tv

Hi GPage1993,
I also just had this problem where it was working then not displaying on a TV (didn't matter if HDMI or Component or a different TV). I knew the system was still "working" by the controller being able to turn it off (got lucking on the power off sequence once). Anyway, I called the Sony help number (1-800-345-SONY) which told me to do a reset by holding down the power button till I heard a second beep. I was then able to see the PS3 interaction on the screen and reset it to the specific format for my TV.
Hope this helps cause I was also about ready to send it back.

I have a jvc/av-65wp74 unit. The screen went blank and made a pop,pop,popping sound. we could not shut it off with the power button, which was blinking off and on. We had to unplug from the wall. we waited...

Try unplugging the Convergence amp board, which is located behind the speaker grille. If the set will power up with the Convergence amps unplugged the ICs will need replacement. I have seen many JVC in both the WP30 and WP74 pop through the speakers when the ICs short. Unplugging them takes them out of the equation and the set will power up but the pic will have severe convergence issues.

Oven temp wil not go above 250°

First, how did you clean it, with an automatic cleaning cycle or by hand?

First thing to do, unplug it from any wall power for 10 to 30 minutes, it may reset itself. Do that regardless if you hand cleaned, whatever.

If you hand cleaned, unplug the unit, or while it is attempting to reset, and check by gently pushing on the elements in the oven, you may have pulled one out of it's connection point in the back and causing a high resistance connection, also look for a thermostat that may have been moved or damaged during the cleaning, there is a sensor in the oven somewhere, and it sends back the data on temperature, make sure it did not get moved into or out of an airstream, or unplugged partially also.

Something had to have been moved or broken while cleaning accidently it is too much of coincidence.

If nothing works after these attempts, write me at and give me more data on the unit and I will try and look up some more trouble shooting ideas for you.

I had exactly this problem. After plugging and unplugging it multiple times over several weeks (even plugging it in quickly after it was unplugged but with the green light still flashing as suggested here) all to no avail, it just started working on its own one day. It worked for a few weeks and then the problem re-appeared.

InFocus tech support recommended:
1. Check whether the lamp door is securely closed.
2. Check the color of the LED and the number of time it blinks. (For me, a very fast almost flickering flash)
3. Does the fan operate? (My fan would go on when plugged in)
4. Remove the lamp module, shake it gently and reseat the lamp module.

For me, these steps did not work. InFocus then recommended that I send it to ProjectorDoctor, and it was diagnosed with a bad power supply. $395, but it is fully functional again. Good luck.........
