Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Comes on and starts to play and then video output becomes scrambled and can not see anything. If I turn it off for a couple of hours I can turn it on again and will be able to see video for about 5 - 10 minutes.
Unfortunately it sounds like you may have fried the the Graphic Processer on the system. So tests you can try to confirm this would be is if you are using the HDMI connection then switch over to the AV connection and vise versa to see if you have the same problem.
It is also possible that you are having a problem with the Operating System on the PS3. So you can go to this link below to help you put the system into recover mode to reinstall the OS on the PS3.
After doing this and you still have trouble then you might check to see if you local repair shop can do anything for you. After the above it you still had trouble I would try the 'Yellow Light" fix to see if the issue is related.
Also on a side note if you get this system working or get a new system I would double check where you have the system sitting because if it is not getting enough air this can cause the system to over heat. If the system is over heating this can cause the problem that you have.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.
