Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Screen goes blank in the middle of a movie or game, system is fully charged.

Seems to help if I squeeze it a bit, so it's likely a battery connection or some other connection. How do I fix this? I tried taking the battery out and it works for a while, but then goes blank again.

I hooked my PS3 to my HDMI cable to get a better visual screen display for my HD movies and games, but display screen went blank and I cant get the commands menu screen, how can I get the menu commands...


You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

  • Hope this helps please remember to rate my response, thanks!

    How do you charge your wii console


    The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.


    instructions:
    1
  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    I havent played my super nintendo in a couple years and everytime i try and play it now i just get a blank screen...ive tried rehooking up everything multiple times but the screen is still dark....any...


    Blank Screen

    Make sure your system is hooked up correctly. This is the number one reason for a blank screen. To ensure all hookup connections are firm and correct, remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion (this will help fully seat the connections). For more information about connecting the system, check the following hookup steps:

    Audio/Video Cable to a TV
    Audio/Video Cable to a VCR
    Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
    Make sure the system has power. If not, go to the No Power Light instructions.
    Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.

    Important Note: Inserting the game with the Power ON may result in a blank screen. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks

    There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.

    • Other Screen Problems
      1. 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.
      2. 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)
      3. 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.
      4. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.

    Tv goes blank for few seconds while playing games


    Sounds Like the graphics chip is starting to go. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They are faster and cheaper than Sony.

    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.

    Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds


    I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!
