Playstation 3 color fades

For some reason, every once in a while the color on my playstation 3 fades. The reds fade first, and then the rest of the colors wash out. THe gameplay is not affected at all. IT doesn't happen all the time, but enough to drive me crazy! Any suggestions?

Try If switching tv will resolve the problem.Your unit work with 2 main concept...Tv and Ps3 .If you try your machine in a different tv and you don`t have any problem is something wrong with the tv you are using.Ps3 for my acknowledge..doesn`t have any chip controlling the color on it.The unit have a video processor but not Chrome processor.The tv have all the color feature etc,.
Good Luck

That's is hardware problem.
Buy new motherboard and this will solve your problem

People think it is the power supply but it is not. Replace the motherboard and this problem will fade away.

All of a sudden all my red colors are faded and almost show grey like it was in black and white or something. All the other colors seem to be fine. What's up?


You have beging signs of yellow light of death and will need to reflow the cpu and gpu with a hot air gun. Cpu and gpu are inside bolted to the radiator. You will have to break the ps3 down to just the motherboard and will also need some new thermal compound paste.

My dad cant hook mine up for some reason


Ok

First, Turn your T.V. on and go to the input mode on the t.v.

Second, there should be two cords in the back of your playstation3.
The power cord and the input cord. These are the two basic cords to turn your playstation on.

Once you have them plugged in, on the back of your playstation 3 there should be a power switch right above the power cord. Click it on so that the I is down and the O is up. In the front of your Playstation, a red light will appear indicating that the Playstation is ready to be turned on. Tap the red light until it turns green ( this should only be tapped once) When it is green the system will go to the start-up menu and enjoy your Playstation 3

Playstation 3 60GB


It needs to be thourouly cleaned every few months. That is a powerful fan and it sucks in tons of dust, even if you have the cleanest house. I never rrecommend the after market products. Sometimes they cause your system to have more problems. Untill you get it nice and clean inside, do not push it or the power supply and/or the mother board will blow something. Hope this helps.
