Ok try this first, it may be a video setup problem :

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. If this does not solve your problem then you need to take it back to where you got it from.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Playing on a regular TV.


Ensure you have returned the PS3 video output system setting to 480i vs the 720/1080 setting. Regular TV will give you a black screen at the higher resolutions.

Ah the PS3, a hive of problems with that little gadget. Well this problem is simple, check the connecting wires on the rear panel, make sure the cords are properly connected to the appropriate ports, also make sure they are free of any dirt or muck. If this didn't help, you may want to return the unit with your warranty card and exchange it for a new one. Sony hasn't completely finished designing the PS3 yet, in a few years they will complete a prototype of the newer version, just like what they did with the PS2, remember it used to be fat? Then came the Slimline which proved to be more reliable. That's what will happen to the PS3 soon.
