IT could be an overheating issue which a lot of systems have.. it has a fail safe for when it gets to hot it will shut off.. If your not getting a display check your coords and tv settings. I have a cooler unit for the ps3 its 30$ if you need one. First check if the tv settings were switched!

My system stays on for about ten minutes, then cuts off afterwards. Whats the problem?


Possible PSU or power supply failure, wherein the power continuity is cutting off due to non continuity in the circuit board. Try to contact Sony if it is still covered by the warranty,

System starts, but no display. Light stays gree.


Maybe video card problem. Try hardware resetting your video card:
- turn off your pc (let it stay off about a minute)
- remove the video card from slot and re-insert again
- turn on the system

Ps3 wont start up


This could be one of 2 problems...
1. The firmware is corrupted and it needs to be fixed by Sony.
2. The video defaults need to be reset. Here is how to do this.

Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

My ps3 wont completely turn on


When the PS3 is in standby (red light on) press and hold the power panel until it beeps again. This reset's your video settings.

That should do it.
