Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Screen goes black during game play!

While playing any game not any certain game the screen will go black for a second or two. The sound continues to play and the game seems to still be going because you can feel the vibration in the controller. It wouldn't be so bad if the game actually paused but it continues so if you are say playing a racing game when it comes back on you've already wrecked! Thought it was maybe the hdmi cable but replaced that with a brand new one. And the problem still existed! Is this an easy fix or is my PS3 jacked? It's only 3 months old and doesn't get played all that much! Anybody got any ideas?

Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

While playing a game the television went black and the screen said there was an error and I need to eject disk and turn of wii and read through the manual for assistance. It continues to do this.


if it does that during playing a certain game then that game is corrupted, but if it does it with any game then their is something wrong with the reader, as it may be confused by region analysis or thinks its a fake game.
