When i start up my ps3, it goes directly to a pink screen wit greenish streaks across it. Any idea to fix it ?


Did you hook it with HDMI or analog? My plasma was on the fritz but when i hooked it up analog it worked..ugly though compared to 1080P. Try a different HDMI cord as well

System will overheat and not function properly, screen displays for 10 minutes then purple/pink colors appear and the system freezes and will not show anything until it cools


Make sure it is in a well ventilated area, and if that doesnt cool it down buy a fan cooler from best buy, its basically two to three fans that hook to the back of the console to cool it down.

Please try the following to reset the display settings back to standard.

Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Wait for the PS3 display to be reset

Turns on nothing displays on the screen


  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

Ps3 display demo games or folding@ home


well it could be the resolution of your tv if your or a damage cable that is causing the problem what you can do is to hook up the ps3 to you tv with the regular cables A/V components(red, white and yellow) and try to play a game or demo, if you could see the picture then is the cable or the display settings. you can also try to check different display settings. for example if you use 1080p change it to 720p and try it to see if it works. also try changing the input to a different input on your tv if you're using HDMI 1 change it to HDMI2. and viseversa
