Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 comes has gone black and white all on its own!

Hey bought my ps3 2 months ago and have been using it with a panasonic plasma telly not hd. Initial setup was fine and all was well for a couple of weeks. One day i turned on the console after changing nothing and the menu and all games were in B&W only. Thinking it may be the crappy cable that came with the console i bought a better scart lead for it and it worked fine for a while. Tonight its gone back to B&W again out of the blue. Ive tried holding the button down etc and doesn't work.
The only thing i can think of that changes on its own is the xmb. Could this affect the settings? How could it be ok one day and not the next?

You can have it repaired at:
PS3 Yellow Light of Death Repair using Infra Red UK
or if you have the receipt, you can have it replaced under the Sale of Goods Act. Anywhere up to 6 years after the date of purchase.
To do this you just need:
Independent PS3 fault report UK
Stating that the fault was there at time of manufacture.

Just bought a 50 panasonic viera, when we hook up ps3 on hdmi cable, we have sound but no picture.


Plasma TV normally do not have the resolution required for PS3 unless the plasma TV is fullHD( 1920x1080p) pixels.

HD Ready Plasma = 1024 x 768p
PS3 Outputs = (fullHD)1920x1080 or (HDReady) 1280 x 720p.

LCD TV accepts the resolution matches the resolution the PS3 is outputting.

There is a fault in the main processor that is causing noise. The set will have to be serviced. The tech will probably try the main video processing board to start.

Black and white and feedback


hi this problem usually happens if you have got alot of things plugged into the telly like dvd players this causes the interferance and can be solved by disconecting these other items.
Also are you plugging it into the telly via scart lead or are you using the av leads ie the different coloured ones.
If you are using scart fitting have you tried pressing the av button on the telly controll as if you are not on the right av chanell this will cause black and white pictures so give it a try also this is the same with the coloured leads let me know how you get on.
Make sure their is nothing in the conector at the ps3 end like a biit of paper or fluff as this can cause all sorts of problems and dont use your ps3 on carpet as it will cause unit to get to hot and will cause parts to overheat and will need replacing check all air vents are free from dust and make sure its on hard surface if the unit has overheated it will cost a fortune to repair

Had the same problem.  Was quoted $800 to fix.  Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on avforums.com

Read through all the posts.  Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with.  I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron!  Even if you decide not to attempt it, it gives you somewhere to start to tell a technician.

NO TV PICTURE


The best way is to contact your service provider and ask them to trouble shoot guide you, there should be a way to reset or diagnose the receiver or if you prefer go back to the place you bought it and ask for a replacement, You should still have the manufacturer's warranty, check that as well.
