I have just purchased a 46" samsung led tv @100hz


Try resetting the entire video/audio settings to default. The blur on the picture may indicate that your motherboard is going bad. Recently there was a customer who had the same problem. It was his board. When we tried the AV cables, the blur went away. We tried different HDMI cables and the blur was still there when using HDMI output. It wasn't the TV, and it wasn't the HDMI cables. It was the board going bad.



Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.

Ps3 freezes and screen goes fuzzy


Try to restore file system on your ps3.
Follow this guide.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

80GB PS3 displays Snow/White screen during playback


Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.

Game wont load on ps3


i had this same problem and the solution to mine was that my ps3 was in my garage and it was too cold in there for the system to operate so i moved it into the living room where it was warm and it eventually began to work

another solution is to just restore the system and then reinstall all of the updates

Your TV does not have the same requirements as the Sony PS3 Console. The PS3 Uses Standard Def. and High Def. Blu-Ray Display. You need Blu-Ray enabled on your Television. Hope this helped.
