PlayStation3 GPU Reballing service
Yes this sounds like the YLOD - caused when the GPU and the CPU overheat - you can send it in to fix but they will charge you for this. Or you can fix it yourself from home with a good repair guide. CLICK HERE FOR A GOOD REPAIR GUIDE
I understand your frustration - my PS3 went through about a two week phase where it only read disks about a quarter of the time. It sounds like you have gone through a lot of the standard troubleshooting stuff, so I'm just going to ramble some facts and ideas and hopefully something will be able to help you! - If your television works, there is no reason it wouldn't be able to host the PS3 system. There is a chance that it will not support full 1080p high definition, but the PS3 is still incredible in standard definition. - Have you used any AUX input devices on your television before to confirm that the red/white/yellow input jacks work? And have you checked any documentation on your television to see if there is some way to switch to AUX input? - If you've pressed the button for 5 seconds, the PS3 should be using its default graphics mode, and will be in standard definition using the cables, so that shouldn't be the problem - If the regular cable TV is playing, there is a good chance the TV needs you to ask it to switch to a new mode of input manually - is there a button on the controller labeled "input", "source", or "AUX"? If none of these are any help, I would recommend going on eBay or heading to the nearest GameStop and buying a new set of connection cables - there is a chance that is the problem, and is a lot cheaper than tossing the PS3 entirely! Good luck, and I hope I was able to help!
Good day! the problem you have posted indicates that the 2 color cathode of your tv is not functioning, it's either that the driver transistor of the red and blue cathode is defective or the crt socket. or maybe the solder point in the crt board needs resoldering. check for some loose connections.
Sounds like one of the cables got plugged in wrong.
Look at the back of the HD box and there should be a cable with 5 ends on it (Green,Blue,Red, White and Red).
Often times a flashlight can help make sure you see the colors clearly.
The Green,Blue and one of the Reds is for video. The White and other red are for Audio.
When you unplug the connector the connection it is attached to is also colored. Check to make sure the colors on the cord match the color they are connected to at the box. The most common mistakes connecting these cables are: 1) Crossing the Green and the Blue cables. 2) Connecting the Red Audio cable to the Red Video connection.
If all of the connections match the correct colors find the same cable where it plugs into the back of the TV and check these connections that they are correct.
When you find and move the cable to the correct connection this should clear up your color and you can begin to enjoy your new toys....
The 37" Vizio I just bought has a very confusing feature where the same input can be used as either the Y channel of the component or the full video channel for composite. If you plug a component source into the TV and then select the composite input ("AV" on the remote), you will see a black and white version of the full component signal (makes sense as the Y channel is just the luminance component). As sad as it is, I was stumped by this for a while until I happened to hit "COMP" and got full color. FWIW, the manual warns about this, but it really doesn't emphasize the point. I wonder how many returns they get because of this.
bad convergence would cause show to look as if it was supposed to be a 3-d movie, if a bulb was going out then people would look purple blue -green,or some other off color, so likely the green bulb is going out from the color of the people you described.
first you check the signal cable continuty by multimeter then correct it if faulty .if ok then give -ve click at red cathode on crt base in on condition if red raster comes on screen then red cathode is ok same thing for green and blue cathode if green cathode do not shows green raster after -ve click then crt is faulty then give -ve click at R point at color raster ic which has heat sink if red color comes then ic is ok same thing for green and blue if ic is faulty then replace it if not then check bipolar capacitor if faulty then replace it
