Hi wlchief,

If you are getting this error it is called the no display error.

Cause:

The reason that it happens is because the GPU which deals with all of your graphics has overheated. You just need to stop the heat build up in order to make it work again.

Solution:

The first way you can fix the No Display Error is by sending it in but bear in mind for this problem there is a $150 charge for the repair which is pretty steep!

Alternative Solution That Is Faster:

If you want to get the problem fixed EVEN FASTER than the option for you is a good PS3 Repair Guide.

How to remove the hard drive on a Playstation 3 Slim

Removing the hard drive on the PS3 Slim is simular to removing the hard drive on an original PS3, however the drive is in a different location.

Note if you are upgrading PS3 hard drive you will need to back up your data first so that you are able to put your files back onto the new hard drive.


1. Make sure you have all your cables unplugged from the PS3.

2. Turn the PS3 upside and locate the hard drive access door (it will be at the front of the system next to the small info sticker).

3. Ether with your finger nail or a small screw driver lift up the cover.

4. Next carefully unscrew the blue screw. Note you will want to make sure you get the right size phillips head to make sure you do not strip out the screw head. On the few systems I have seen a PH1 head you be the right size you need.

5. After you have the screw removed you will want to slide the hard drive cover to the right to expose the hard drive.

6. Next pull down on the lever and pull strait back in the drive caddy to remove it from the PS3.

If you have remove the drive to upgrade the drive you will want to unscrew the drive from the caddy and install your new drive.

If you have removed to corrupted data on the hard drive the link below will walk you through formatting the hard drive on your computer just skip to step 4 as the first steps are for removing the hard drive from the original PS3.

Ps3 wont stay on it just flicks off inside a sec


Is this a slim ps3??? If it comes on and goes back off within 5 seconds or so with no beeping chances are its the psu (power standby unit). Lots of slims have had this issue. Replacments on ebay are 40-60$$$.

Have a PS3 slim, when i turn it on at connect it to the TV with the Component cables, everything works fine, picture shows and the sound comes out just fine, but when i try to connect it with the HDMI...


You need to turn on the tv and set to HDMI, Then power on the PS3 and hold down the on (standby) button until it beeps again twice and it will pick up the TV and display on the HDMI,

If this doesnt work go to system settings and video settings and set the output to HDMI.

My new ps3 slim doesnt display on tv


Well, after seven months I hope you have gotten this issue resolved, if not it sounds like your tv isn't on the AUX channel. Try switching your input to AUX. It should fix the problem

Help brand new ps3 hard drive corrupted. Im not taking the hardrive out, HELL NO!


I would return for replacement if it is new. Or send to sony would be under warranty if under 1 year. If not warrantied try to format the hard drive.Replace hard drie if it is older style PS3 and not the new slim PS3. I think the hard drive is built in and cannot be removed. If is a slim, your best bet is the warranty. Good Luck.
