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.

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

Cant get the power to turn on,worked fine last night, it got unplugged, this morning plugged in, won't turn on and the power button just flashse


Flashing is either an error code or the set trying to boot up--some of the Mitsubishi sets if power removed will blink for a minute and then stop--then the set can be turned on.

a model number?

You may just need to reset the setting on your PS3. The first part of the link below will help you do this.

Note if you still have trouble then you may have some corrupted data on the hard drive and you may need to format the drive.

Hello kelsbels1982

The exact cause of the RSOD (Red Screen Of Death) is not exactly known. Sony acknowledges it is a problem, and will repair or exchange your PS3 unit. Whether or not it will cost you anything depends on if your PS3 is still under warranty.

Sorry there's not an immediate solution to your problem.

Most of the times, you're going to find that this is due to over heating. If you've been playing for a while, shut down your Playstation, and let it sit for about 1 hour. It's best if the room is cooled off as well.If the room is hot, you may want to put a fan blowing toward it, or turn up your Air Conditioning.Check the back of your unit, and make sure that all of the cables are plugged in. What you're going to want to do is take out each one, and blow the inside of the ports with compressed air.

To play it safe, take out the Playstation's hard drive, and place it back in.Once the 1 hour is up, and the Playstation hasn't been running, turn it back on, and see if everything is working. If it is, you're good to go! If it isn't, you may want to consult with Sony.
