Black screen ps3 play


Where are you seeing the black screen?
If it is during game startup, then the game file could be corrupted:
Move selection to the game title that is causing the black screen and pres the triangle button for options, select "delete".

Then do a database rebuild (This also erases any messages, but will not lose game data or account info) -
Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off.
Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off.
Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times.
A maintenence menu screen should appear, from that, select "rebuild database".
When it is finished, it should automaticly restart.
Then go to Playstation Store and re-download.
Reinstall and run to get it to update the game again and it should work fine.

If you mean that you only get a black screen when you turn on your PS3, then it could be set to the wrong video output. To get it to automaticly detect your video, use the procedure to get to the maintanence menu and it will display text asking for video setting:
Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off.
Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off.
Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times.
Text should appear saying whether it detects HDMI video or not, if you see the text, then select "yes", otherwise simply wait a moment and it will switch to composite automaticly.

Far cry 3 keeps on trying to update and wont play


Slow internet connection, or corrupted files.
I have no solution for a slow connection, but for corrupted files, select the game title in your game list (which may only show up while disk is inserted), then press the triangle button for options and select "delete".

Then do a database rebuild (This also erases any messages, but will not lose game data or account info) -
(To rebuild databse)
Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off.
Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off.
Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times.
A video detection message should appear, select "yes" if you can see it, if not, the screen will automaticly switch to composite video after a short moment and then go to the PS3 maintanence menu. From that, select "rebuild database".
When it is finished, it should automaticly restart.

Reinstall and run to get it to update the game again and it should work fine. If not, then repeat this solution, but also look for any related game data files after deleting the game itself. You may lose any saved games, but any other progress sould resync from the PSN servers once the game is reinstalled.

I do not know what to do says Please insert PlayStation or PlayStation 2 format disc. Please read it if you write to me with otgovor.A'm desperate.


if the disk is a Blueback, most modern PS2 consoles won't touch it. bluebacked disks still have their data stored in CD format rather than in a Data DVD

to play a Blueback
1. turn on the unit without a disk in
2. press Triangle on "browser"
3. scroll up to the top item and press triangle again
4. turn "Diagnostic Mode" ON
5. back out with circle, and start the browser
6. put your disk in with the browser on. is should read the disk

some disks will still cause the red screen (like cheat devices) occasionally

When I turn it on it says "Sony Computer Entertainment" then goes to a white wavy default screen. From there it is unresponsive unless I take the battery out. Any ideas?


I think this is the default setting (for it to startup and go to the white screen) it may be that it is set to automatically start UMD if one is inserted I don't know whether this may be the case perhaps it can't read the disk so it continually tries to read the disk,if you have a disk in remove it and then try if it works go to system settings and turn UMD autostart off.Although if what I say is right then it possibly can't read games.

Disc read error


Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.
