Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

Frequent blank screen

I bought the new PS3 slim last Sep 3 and it was working perfectly until Sep 28 when it started to have blank screens (no video and no audio). Initially I thought it was an overheating problem, so I rested the console. The next few days, I will try to play or watch a movie but after 10-15 mins the blank screen shows up again=(. The PS3 has still the green light on, no red light, no blinking... I can see the HDD blinking orange. I most of the forums regarding blank screen but still cannot find the answer. I tried the HDMI and composite connection, same story, the screen blacks out but the console is still running. I tried resetting the video outputs, turning on and off the TV still not working. Please help!

SOURCE: Games run on hdmi, but not Blu-ray movies

You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"

SOURCE: PS3 with no video / no audio

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the blinking controller lights indicate that it is charging. If it is continuously doing so, might it not just indicate that the battery requires replacement since it will not longer accept a charge. The average charging time would be about an hour and would be indicated by the absence of the blinking light(s) on the controller.

To verify, when the PS3 displays the startup screen, pls press the PS button (middle of the controller) on the top right hand of corner of the screen, battery status of the controller would be displayed. if the display shows running/changing mnumbers 1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3, then the controller is charging.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video

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!

SOURCE: My PS3 hdmi cable does not work

First off, if you want to use the hdmi remove the supplied composite cable from the back of the ps3.
You don't need both plugged in at the same time, and I'm not sure with the ps3 but some video devices will not enable both at once.

Have your tv selected for whatever hdmi input you have it plugged into. They should be labeled where you plug them in.

With the unit in standby, switch off and red light in front, hold the power button by the disc tray for 3-5 second. You will hear it beep, after the initial turn on beep, then you should see a display set up screen.

If you switch back to the composite, you will have to do this over again.

Try holding down the down the power button until you hear one beep then it should come up with a message saying that a hdmi cable has been detected and just follow the on screen instructions.

My screen is blank and the contollers won't sync up


Sounds like it may be a video problem. Try reseting your system:

1. make sure the system is off

2 hold down the power button for 5-6 seconds, until you hear a second beep

You should be able to use it.

If that doesnt fix it, please let me know the serial number on your ps3, how you are connecting it to your tv (composite, hdmi etc) and the last time it was working and what you have done since.
