You need to lower the resolution. if your using HDMI, you need to use the AV first in order to set it up to a lower resolution. then plug in the HDMI (make sure your TV has the HDMI enabled in the settings menu of you plasma or LCD tv.) then plug it in, then the picture will appear and set up the resolution to a low HD setting.

Playstation 3 turns on but does nothing!


this probably can be a problem with your Hard Disk . try using a new one (borrow it from a friend, for example) , or try formatting yours in a PC (notebook) platform .

else, you can try an advanced cooler cleaning. for this, do it :
  1. Turn the system off by the switch that's behind it .
  2. Turn the switch you powered off ON while you HOLD THE EJECT BUTTON .
  3. It will make your coolers work in maximum speed for a while, this must set the system free from dust . (i don't think that's the problem).
else, contact Sony Support Center for possible hardware issue checking (maybe there's a problem with RAM units)
