Please try these following steps, they should bring your PS3 back to life :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I was updating ps3 system from 4.46 to 4.50 last night and froze in the middle of the update and now it shpw me a message when i start it back up saying connect a mass storage with system update 4.46 or...


Upgrading is often not necessary, and fraught with danger of not working as you have found out. Congratulations, you now have corrupted software and unless you can resolve the issue by reloading the software you are in deep doo doo.

In future you only upgrade when it is absolutely necessary for the proper operation of a vital software. If it is working fine, you leave it alone!!!!!!!!!!!

Tip

Playstation 3 has sound but not showing picture


It sounds like you have changed your display settings either to HDMI but are not connected with HDMI or you have set the progressive scan to ON and it's not supported by your TV. Try turning off the Playstation 3 and then hold the power button for about 5 seconds, until you hear a second set of beeps. This procedure will reset your display settings, then auto detect your connection, provided you have kept up with the updates. If you have kept up with the updates or aren't sure, you can use the same steps, but you will need to be connected via Composite Cable and not HDMI. If this doesn't work, you may need to send it in for reparis.

I connected ps3 to my router last night an it connected to live but today its sayin error code 80023121 how can i resolve it an what does it mean


Hello,
The PlayStation Network is down at the moment. Sony Entertainment is working on this. The code is from the site not a physical error with your PS3.
"While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we're able to get the service completely back up and running. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we'll update you again as soon as we can."

Cant sign in to Heavy rain which played last night saying trophy collection problem with an errorr code 8001050f. It was fine last night but cant do anything tonight - help!!


Call (800-345-7669)

Sony Network is experiencing sporadic outages in certain areas today.

It is reported to be "scheduled system upgrade" to the network servers - be assured you are not the only one facing this issue.

No UP time has been announced by Sony - they are working to get the system up and running as soon as possible.

The problem is not on your end.

Keep trying to connect.

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


All: Try this -

P
erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
