Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

No picture any more

We were playing UNCHARTED this morning just fine. Son paused the game on the menu screen. We left for a few hours. Came home and the PS3 was still on with the solid blue/green light like normal. We didn't see the game on the tv screen. We activated the controller. Nothing. We put in standby and then powered down the PS3. Waited 15 minutes. Checked all connections. Did nothing else. Turned it back on. Unit powers up fine and everything appears normal but now we have no picture. TV is fine. I tried 5 different games and several movies but nothing works. I tried holding down the reset button and nothing helps. Any thoughts?

Deleting the game data and reinstalling via the disk after installing the new firmware update seems to allow play to continue, when nothing else does. Although after about 45 minutes I had a 2nd hardlock and had to delete and reinstall again. I think played for another hour with no issues.
