Ps3 unit stopped working

Playing ps3 on my big screen t.v. worked fine. Took it to my neighbors to see it on his new high def-flat screen. He hooked a cable in the Hdmi output to get it on his T.v....nothing..hooked it up with the regular cables...nothing. Brought it home and now it will not work at all even on my set where it was just working. Black screen..will not power off correctly...green button does not flash and skips to red and there is a clicking sound when it goes to red. Never hooked a cable like that to run the ps3, did it damage the unit? I now have a $600 unit doing nothing. Please help

    when on standby hold the power button for 4 seconds, it runs the optimal settings screen, i dont think this is your prob but it might help. What cable was used at your neighbours? was it an hdmi cable? did you knock your ps3 when moving it?

If it is still under warranty, call the sony customer care line, the uk number is:08705998877. Any other numbers are available on the internet. My laser stopped working today, my ps3 is only two months old. I called the care line this afternoon, and my new ps3 is being delivered tomorrow! They have a technical help line and may be able to help you fix it over the phone.
Good luck.

Little big planet freezes my ps3


Sometimes certain games just will not work. I bought a copy of Heavy Rain that did the same thing. I took it back and traded in for a different copy of Heavy Rain and it worked perfectly. Don't know what causes it, but it happens.

It works fine with a high def cable, but when i go to connect it to a tv with the audio video cords nothing at all will come up on the screen.


There are certain settings on the PS3 that has to be changed each time that you switch from High Def to AV. You have to plug both cords in and turn the PS3 on and view the screen with the High Def. You have to go to Settings --> Display Settings --> Video Output Settings
then follow the instructions.
Watch this video and it will help you switch from High Def to AV.

No visual picture


If it's a setting on the PS3 then just hook it up to another T.V. set it back to default and hook it back up to your other T.V.

Playstation 3 not working with older model Pioneer AV receiver


If you have set the component output on the ps3 for high def,ie 720p or 1080i and do not get a picture it sounds like the component input is not high def enabled on your amp,change the setting on ps3 to standard 576 output,or put picture into tv then sound into amp if you want to run 720p or 1080i.

Hope this helps.

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

Picture problems


Hi,

The pixelation is probably caused by MPEG2 compression on the DVD and Virgin media video streams, the blur is probably caused becasue you are displaying a standard definition signal on a high definition TV.

However if a high-def source still has these problems then you may have a faulty TV, your best bet is too hook up a high-def source such as a HD/Blu-ray player or PS3/360 games console.

Should a high-def source look ok, then you may have some look changing the display settings on the TV to try and improve picture sharpness and color balance.

Thanks.
