ok you have to reset the ps3 by turning of backswitch wait 10 seconds turn on the backswitch then press and hold down the front power button for 10 seconds you should hear 2-3 beeps that does it just wait and the video settings have automatically detected your tv settings and are going to ask you to save hit x to save display settings on ps3 remote problem solved. If you still get problem message me cause its technically bad.

All you need to do is turn it off then turn it back on and hold the reset/power button for a few seconds until it beeps then this will automatically setup your PS3 to whatever your TV is setup, I have found this to be an awesome help.

Yamaha rx-v456 av receiver, shut down with optica cable

Does it work without PS3 attached?
When receiver turns off, it is usually due to badly connected/configured speakers. Try powering on the receiver without speakers.

PS3 either won't turn on, or freezes immediately. HELP!!!!

OK it sounds like a problem I had with one of the units that came into my shop, I do believe you will need a new part which means you will need to break the seal. I suggest you call sony and see what they say and what they will do for you. 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
If they want to charge you id say forget it and try it yourself.
i can send you a guide to help you fix it.

I am thinking a sensor board or a power supply could be others and its hard since its not in my face but let me know what sony says and letss fix this baby.

I do also buy broken ps3s and can help you find a steal on a used or new unit!

PS3 will not start

Okay, try to turn it on with the sixaxis, but hold the ps button for 5-8 seconds: I think that can reset the PS config settings. or something like that. Also call the support number (800-488-7669) If it's under warranty (which it should be since the system hasn't even been out for a year), I'd suggest trading it in for another one, but keep the hard drive or have them transfer the info, and get them to give you another game. If it stepped-down it may have browned-out, which means it may have fried the chips. It sounded like the PS3 tried to save it by turning off automatically, but if you're having troubles starting the OS, it sounds like it may have spiked before stepping down. Yeah, I'd get another one since it's under warranty. No use ice skating uphill.
