Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 turns on but the screen stays black and the ps3 wont respond to any of my controllers to turn on or off
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.
