Re: PS3

You could try when you switch the ps3 on if you hold down the power button for more than 4 seconds it runs the display setup. and sets the ps3 to run in the best possible option. but considering it was dropped i think you might have to phone sony and expect a repair bill.

"My PS3 console is connected

If your tv has hdmi ports I would recommend that instead of the standard YWR-AV you will have way a better sound and picture.

My ps3 was dropped by accident and now it wont display anything. The green light comes on but the blue one doesnt. I also noticed that the controllers wont charge anymore nor will they turn the system on...

Anytime something electronic is dropped its usually a cracked board that is the result which is why your ps3 now is acting crazy doing weird things.

I personally think its a goner cause the board probably has hairline cracks in it and that will affect how the system runs.

System shows that the disc is loading, but does

That sounds like a faulty laser. Unfortunatly,Sony has not fixed this yet and i don't think they will anytime soon. I would suggest cleaning the laser lens first with alcohol and a q tip,if that doesnt work,have the laser lens professionally. If none of the above help,then it's the spindle motor and that can be tested by putting your hand on the ps3 after you slide a disk into the loading slot and feeling for very small vibrations.

My ps3 doesnt show any screen on my regular tv anymore !!!

You will need to change the display settings back to normal for a standard TV. Obviously a little tricky if it's already hooked up to the TV that won't display a picture! If you do a manual (or is it called total reset?) this should revert it back to standard TV settings. To perform the reset hold the power button down for 10 seconds (I think it's 10 anyway) or until you here a couple of beeps and it should reset the display settings to it's default.

Hope that helps? Sorry I cant be more exact on the reset details.

Ps3 doesnt recognize games just sits on the main menu screens

if the ps3 wont recognize the cds anymore,it means that your lens is already busted and its time to bring it to the nearest workshop for a lens replacement.

My ps3 wont play games and it keeps freezing whenever I try to play a game. It started when I was playing the demo for NBA 2K9 and I tapped the center ps3 button and I clicked the other demo NBA live 09...

My ps3 freezes up every when I am playing Madden 09 and its getting real old. I have to quit my game every time because there is no other way to fix it other than quiting. It doesnt freeze all the time but it has started to alot more a few days ago. Is there something I can do about this?
