SCreen goes blank intermittendtly


It is OK that there is enough space where your PS3 is located but what is required is ventilation to take out the heat which may be the case in this case. Therefore try to put PS3 in a place where the place gets enough ventilation. There is no other reason for screen going blank intermittently Also, it is suggested that you clean the terminals of the cables periodically by disconnecting them as the heat attracts dust and the contacts become dirty with dust thus affecting the connections

R - Restore: Restore default settings E - Environment: Change your environment, remove from media cabinet, try different media, try different equipment (TV, router, hotspot, etc.). P - Power Cycle: Power cycle by unplugging your networking equipment from wall for 2 minutes to reset. A - Access this Knowledge Center for useful articles to resolve issues. I - Install the latest System Software Update. R - Resolved: In most cases these steps can resolve your issue.
Adjust the video input on the TV to match the input connector that is being used to connect to the PS3™ system. Check that the cable is securely inserted. Try disconnecting the cable from the PS3™ system or TV and then reconnecting it. There may be a problem with the AV cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PS3™ system. If the video output settings on the system do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, with only the system and the TV connected, touch the system’s power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution. If the resolution of the video content is not supported by the TV in use, when the video is played the screen may go blank. If this happens, go to the screen for selecting the resolution in the system’s video output settings, and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

    Ps3 as no video or sound i bought 3 wires for the tv and no color or soud sows we even used a ps2 cable


    Excerpt from the PlayStation 3 Manual:

    There is no picture on the TV screen.

    *Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the system.

    *There may be a problem with the AV cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PS3 system.

    *If the video output settings on the system do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, with only the system and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

    *If the resolution of the video content is not supported by the TV in use, when the video is played the screen may go blank. If this happens, go to the screen for selecting the resolution in the system's video output settings, select "Custom" and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

    Video goes Balck with some games


    Hi

    Offhand, have you tried another souce for the video or connecting the ps3 another way to the television?

    Is your ps3 covered by warranty, this seems like a possible hardware problem. But first have you tried updating your ps3 internal software to the latest available?

    Problem connecting HDMI cable


    Hey there I don't see why your playstation 3 should be doing that other than the console being defective. Sony doesn't have this problem that often and actually this is the first time i have heard of such problem. Try making sure the the HDMI cable is connected at both ends all the way in and also make sure your Samsung is a 1080P which i am pretty sure it is and finally if you have a friend or another 1080P HDTV in your house i would try and see if your ps3 will support the 1080P feature. If you still have the problem even when you use a different TV then its the ps3 that is malfunctioning otherwise it would be your Samsung. Let me know how that turns out alright.
