Have you updated the system software to the latest version? One of the recent updates (2.41) has caused this same issue for lots of people (read comments in this article) http://www.slipperybrick.com/2008/07/sony-ps3-241-firmware/

one person suggested formatting your hard drive, and on the next boot the ps3 should prompt you to download firmware, which theoretically should fix it. At this point it may be worth a shot, you should go to sony's support site for ps3 and follow the instructions on how to do that, or just check out some forumns, don't give up hope!

I took my ps3 to a buddys house. he doent have an hd tv and my ps3 wont work on it. how can I make it work?


You need to obtain an adapter that instead of a HDMI, it's a standard red, white and yellow connector. I hope this offers some assistance.

My playstation 3 will not play in 1080p. It used to work, but when we switched cables, it wont work in HD.


When you switched cables, you mean you changed the cord running from the PS3 to the TV? HD content requires an HDMI connection from the PS3 to the TV. It is possible that when you changed cables, you replaced the PS3's HDMI cable with Component Cables which can only deliver in Standard Definition and not in High Definition (720p, 1080i and 1080p).

SAFE MODE

1) Place you finger on the on/off sensor keep it their until your console turn off. Remove your finger.

2) Place you finger back on the on/off sensor keep it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3) Choose the last option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A system restore will delete all saved game data. It is recommend backing up your console if possible.

Ps3 only works on my HD tv.


when you turn on the ps3 from the switch on the back, when the light turns red, hold down the power button on the front instead of tapping it to turn the light green. Hold it for atleast 5 secs. This restores the display settings.
