Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have a problem with my PS3 System. When I turn the console on nothing happens, I get a black screen. I checked all plugs and it seems not to help would anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this prblen?
You can try two things easily:
While the PS3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.
If that doesn't work try it again with the hard drive removed from the PS3.
If neither suggestion solves your issue you can try hooking the PS3 up with different cables ( a/v or hdmi) but I have NEVER seen cables go bad, but still Sony suggests you try.
More than likely the issue you are experiencing is related to the GPU on the motherboard.
There is a DIY approach to fixing it but I suggest sending into Sony for a solid repair.
You can contact SONY @ 1-800-345-SONY
Hope this info helps.

Testimonial: "I give those a try, thank you"
I just had that same problem. for some reason our resolution on our tv changed. it's happened once before. we didn't change it but i noticed when i switched to the ps3 that it was only 480p instead of 1080i. we went into our tv settings and changed it back and it is working fine now.
