Hi, you may have a problem with the lead give it a good wiggle all the way from the ps to the telly if that dont work try and borrow a friends lead to rule out the lead being the problem, if it still dont work then try the following to reset the console.

This is how to fix it:
1)turn your ps3 -off- by the switch at the back
2)turn it back -on- again by the switch at the back only
(there should be a red light now)
3)now -hold- your thumb on the power button located on the front for a few seconds until the ps3 turns itsself on and off.
(during this process there will be about three beeps spaced apart,and after that the light will return to red)
4)finally hold your thumb on the front power button again and you will hear two beeps then a double beep.
-IMPORTANT-
After you hear the double beep take your thumb off the button before it shuts itself down again.
5)once you have done that you should see the picture.

if after doing the above it still dont work then this would indicate it has over heated so try the following.

1 switch the ps3 off and leave it off for at least an hour
2 remove all leads from ps3 and tv
3 make sure the ps3 is not being used on carpet or on top of dvd player or sky box as this will cause it to over heat very quick
4 make sure all the air vents are clean and have no dust vac them out if needed.
5 make sure the ps3 has got good air flow around it and not stuck inside a shelf thats blocked off at the back as this to will cause it to over heat.
6 now plug it back in and give it a try.

if it still dont work then this would indicate the gpu chip has over heated and has probably fried.
if you have any warranty left on it take it back as this fault is covered by warranty.

i fix these for about 25 pound plus parts so you need to shop around and see if you can get it repaired, their is no guarantee the repair will work as their is always the chance that it has over heated that much that it has cracked the solder joints that hold the chip onto the circuit board.

im in uk and we do offer a repair service so if your in the uk and would like it repaired you can give me a shout back or if you need further assistance just give me a shout back.

let me know how you get on ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I am having issues with my RCA Scenium D52W135D (playstation 3 connection). Recently, I have been having a very specific problem with this combo. I have it connected using HDMI to a Pioneer receiver...


Had the same problem. With mine the other day you probably moved your Playstation 3 too another tv and set your 1080i,720,480 to high deaf on settings in Playstation. You have to change them back to automatic that TV says HDTV but it only plays Playstation 3 on 480 checked in settings of Playstation. Played mine for 4 years on that TV moved and got a 3d wifi then dad got him one And was going to trash that RCA but I told him I would take it for now too keep from buying another TV at this time got it in my new home wouldn't play video but it. would sound tried different cables but still now change. But remembered i changed all of my settings over when I got 3D TV. Playstation 3 hadn't been on know other TV. Since I owned it but that RCA now won't work then came to me last night and playing it on both TVs but you have to change the settings on it before moving it or you cant see the screen to fix it do that guarantee it will fix it. Like you said everything else works PS 1,PS 2,DVD, cable,but PS 3 won't its the settings in theme,and audio.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: hi, my playstation 3 wont play dvds or video games...


IF YOU HAVE WARRANTY SEND IT TO SONY!
You can try powering on to your "diagnostic screen", (there are videos online to show you how) and try restoring your file system. If this does not work, listen to the area that you insert your disk while inserting. if it sound like it is spinning, then you may have a dirty lens. If it is making a "studdering noise" then your Bluray laser is bad and needs to be replaced. The part is about $50.00 on ebay on not hard to do.

This should tell you how to determine the laser model that you need. Your model number is on teh back left and starts with CECH

No picture coming to my tv


Hi there,

If you have sounds already playing on the laptop, then you must switch your default to the HDMI then go and re open the program ie itunes. Any other program playing sounds on ur laptop speakers will continue to play through the lap top speakers...
On VISTA do this
Right click your screen
go to personalize
on the left there is an option "connect to a projectror or external display"
Click the speaker picture, and set the default to HDMI by right clicking it and selecting make default.
Close your media programs, and then re-open them and hit play
