Ps3 goes to black screen then to normal

It could be as simple as your video cable going bad. Check to make sure the wire is in good shape and that the contacts and connections are secure.

I would say try using it with an HDMI cable (if possible) and see if the problem persists. You can also try and hook up another device (DVD player, camera, PS2, etc) to the TV input you are using now and see if it is the TV that is giving you trouble.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.

Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

Video is fine; audio will not play. All cables

Disconnect the cable from the ps3, the one that connects the ps3 and the monitor, for a few seconds, then reconnect it. You do this while video is playing or when you play games.

PS3 games play but DVD/Blu-ray will not

Sounds like a bad laser, but you should restore the PS3 back to Factory to see what happens.

If you get the same results it's definitely the laser.
