Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

When I turn on my PS3 only the green power light shows up and my screen remains completely black with no sound. Usually a blue light pops up aswell, but I'd suppose that is where my problem comes in. What is the problem and how do I fix it? If I have to send it in to Sony do you have any idea of the cost?

After an update for my PS3 my screen went black and my console won't come on. The green light comes on but there is no picture on the screen.


switch power back off, teun it on, hold power touch on the front down--> PS3 will turn on, keep holding until it turns off. when it turns off, take of your finger. hold down your finger again on the power touch, green light will blink, keep holding, you will hear one peep, then two peeps (when you hear the two peeps take off you finger); a menu will show up, chose restore factory default setting then ok, PS3 will restart, hopefully that will fix it

Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.

It does not turn on, remains in stand by mode.


I cannot be COMPLETELY sure of this so be careful, but doesn't the PS3's board cater for both types of power supply and therefore a step down transformer is not needed? Check the labels on it just in case, but be wary I CANNOT be certain of this...
