PS3 Hiya, My Son's PS3 will boot up ok but then, when the menu comes up on screen the display goes blurred and a blotchy green/blue colour like wallpaper. The PS3 won't do anything after this. Have you come across this fault before please? Can I do anything about it? Many Thanks Neil Wilson email - neilwilson1@blueyonder.co.uk

Dear Friend the best possible solution is to contact the Sony support team and tell them what your problem is, But consider this first, if you bought the unit on the last 11 months you could send it for Manufacturer's Warranty repair you only need the original sales receipt and contact the 1-800-345-7669, now make sure you keep a record of who you talk to and when you send the unit use a traceable method UPS or FedEx might be your best choice. Keep in mind that having it repaired somewhere else might be as much as half the price of the unit, and when you send back to the manufacturer you might even get a brand new Play Station 3, the only draw back about this procedure is that it will take as much as three months to get it back but you will save a lot of money.
Also check your sales receipt and see how long you have on the store return policy...long shot!!

My screen stays blank when I turn on. Lights blue and green come on but screen stays blue


If your display settings aren't set to automatic this can occur. Example: if you have set resolution to 1080i and are trying to play it on a display that has 1080p you will get a blank screen or no signal message. you will have to connect your PS3 to the last display you had an image on and change the "display setting" to "automatic" for your PS3 to work on all displays. when you choose a specific resolution to the "display settings" it will only work on that specific resolution. hope this helps.

My PS3 turns on to green light but nothing comes on screen


After the system boots up, hold your finger down on the metal spot where you normally turn it on. it'll completely reset all settings & hopefully set to the proper video output.

PS3 - green Bar when playing blue ray on my 50" Phillips Plasma


Green bar or border is due to wrong AV Setting. To resolve this just insert the Blue-Ray DVD and begin to play. Press the Triangle button and select "AV Setting", in AV Setting change Video Output to RGB.
