    1. First off check your connections. Make sure that whichever display/video cable you might be

    currently using, is connected all the way & properly hooked up to your TV & PS3. This will fix

    most display/video problems.

    2. Check your display/video cables to make sure that there is nothing wrong with your cables. If

    you suspect there is a problem with your cables but are not sure, try them on another PS3 (one

    that you know for sure is working & does not have display/video problems)

    3. Hold the power button on the ps3 for 5 seconds until you hear a beep. If this doesn't work, try a

    few times. It should work. This will also fix most display/video problems (i.e. no display/

    . (When turning on your PS3, be sure to hold the power button down.DO NOT LET GO ! If you turn it on, then repress the power button again for 5 sec. until you hear a

    beep, IT WILL NOT WORK)

How to fix a blank screen

Have an HP pavilion A705W. Monitor has blank screen. Installing a PCI video card, but BIOS is set for on board video. Is there anyway to change this when I don't have a screen to see the bBIOS settings ?...

If the screen's completely blank, ie. it doesn't show a 'No Signal' message then it's probably the monitor not the pc. If you have another monitor then you can test the spare monitor with this pc or this monitor with another pc, to see where exactly the problem lies.

If it is the monitor then it could well be some bad electrolytic capacitors on the power board which are causing your problem. If so it's easy and cheap to fix yourself, even easier but not as cheap if you pay a tv repair man to do it. I've posted a link which will help you identify if this is your problem and how to fix it.

If it is the onboard video that has gone then I doubt installing a video card will help, as the signal from the video card has to pass through the onboard chipset. I was given a dell with this problem and the only way I could've fixed it was to buy a new motherboard for it, which just wasn't worth it in my case as I already had much better pc's anyway. - It talks about motherboards mainly, but it still applies to other stuff as well, just ignore the motherboard specific stuff eg. remove cpu and ram etc

Wii loads then screen goes blank

Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the BLANK SCREEN OF DEATH

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

No Sound, No Picture on Magnavox 51MP392H/17

If you hear a constant clicking or chirping sound get the chirping TV repair kit from

If you have no video - but have audio - its most likey the HVG.

Note: When the video goes out sometimes its hard to tell if you have audio becuase you can't see the screen to change to the correct channel.

Laptop does a long beep, followed by two short beeps.

One long followed by two short beep IS a video error. However, your model laptop does not have a separate video card. The only fix is to replace the mother board. Here is the service manual that will show you how to take apart the laptop and even give you the part number you would need to replace the motherboard.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Call sony 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
ask them what to do and their price on it!
There is a fix but it normally requires you to take the seal off and if you dont want to attempt that then you can send it back or sell it to me ;) I do buy broken ps3's.

If you are willing to have a go at it via yourself let me know I can help you get the parts and fix it!
