This is usually a problem associated with the blu ray laser, sometimes if you use a lens cleaner disc it can sort it out but sometimes this will just not work.

If it does not work you may find that you have to replace the blu ray drive unfortunately.

As a quick test you could re-initialise the display by turning the PS3 off into standby, press the power button and hold it, wait for the second beep (the first beep will happen when you first press the button to turn it on) and let go when you hear the second beep. The display will reset.

See if this sorts it out

Hi! The fan may not be working very well. When used for a long time the unit tends to crash for there is not enough air to cool down the console. You may want to have it repaced to resolve the problem. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Ps3 goes to black screen then to normal


It could be as simple as your video cable going bad. Check to make sure the wire is in good shape and that the contacts and connections are secure.

I would say try using it with an HDMI cable (if possible) and see if the problem persists. You can also try and hook up another device (DVD player, camera, PS2, etc) to the TV input you are using now and see if it is the TV that is giving you trouble.

When playing regular dvdson my ps3, the screen will sometimes go black for just a second or two then come back on. I sometimes notice a red or green flash of color right before the pic goes out or comes...


Ok I have had this happen a few times before. What I do to fix it is disconnect the HDMI cable while everything is still on and playing and then re-insert the cable back into the TV. This re-configures the HDMI signal and should hopefully stop this problem.

Try updating your PS3 firmware by connecting it to internet and using its setting menus to start the firmware update. IIRC some early PS3 firmwares kept loosing HDMI signal occasionally.

Screen goes black


sounds like you're using an HDMI cable, and the cable is broken. That's exactly what happens when HDMI cables break, a few of those 0s and 1s don't make it to the TV every once and a while, and the TV goes black and the audio dies.

or

go to system update and choose online update. an optional ps3 firmware 3.01 fixes this issue

also, I had a similar situation a while back. Anytime I loaded any disk (game or movie) it would just go black and freeze. I had to do a system reset (where it reloads everything and you lose your data). You can back everything up before that and restore it once you are done. It has worked fine for nearly a year since then.

Audio Trouble hooking PS3 up to HD


Hi there, Have you checked that the HDMI Cable is inserted into both your PS3 and HDTV correctly ? if the cable moves about in the HDMI port that causes static sometimes ! Also check that your cable isn't damaged.

If the problem persists. i would just Use your Composite (Red,Green,Blue) connection from your TV to your PS3. you said it doesnt have static problems. and Using the composite cable you can still get the Full 1080p Resolution on your TV that the PS3 can Up-Scale to!

Hope this Helps ?!

Ps3 HDMI cable no audio


You might want to try another HDMI cable...the one you have may have a short in it. You can find HDMI cables for really cheap online so it's not a big deal to buy on eor two more as back up. Also, try changing the audio settings with in the BluRay or DVD itself. Sometimes the movies can default to an unsuppotred audio format.
