I am having problems with my PS3 that i got back when they first came out in 2006. When you turn it on it seems fine but then the screen starts having green stuff on it then the whole screen turns green...


Hello it is a fairly common problem,unfortunately your hard drive is bad.You can access it from the side of the unit behind the rectangular panel.After you replace it you will have to update all of its information via a thumb drive,download the update thru a computer, those updates are available for free upload from sony playstation support (online).The thumbdrive will then be inserted into one of the usb jacks on the front of the ps3 and the ps3 will then guide you thru the setup and install.

SNES problem


Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system.

We find that video problems occur most when an unlicensed RF switch is used. Make sure the name "Nintendo" is molded onto the RF switch, as opposed to "for use with Nintendo." Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with our systems and may not work correctly.

Check all of the system connections to verify that they are firm and correct.

For AV connections
Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion

For RF connections
Make sure the channel switch on the TV and system are set to the same channel (either CH3 or CH4)

Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to make sure it is locked in place.

Important Note: Removing the Game Pak with the power ON will cause the Game Pak image to freeze on the screen. Press Reset to correct the problem. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks.

Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, see below.
