Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My ps3 goes to a black screen where it appears to be off but it's not. Sometimes the proper screen will return. Sometimes I have to cut it off from the back of the console for a while. In a hour or so it starts right up again. I'm wondering if it is getting overheated. If so is my ps3 permanently damaged. If so, should I buy another since I have no warranty?

Hi nicholass sa,

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.

Ps3 restoring problem


Does it give you an option to start without restore? Another option is to unplug it completely for 30 seconds. Mine sometimes does this too, but shutting it off almost always works

When ever i try to play ps3 games on the mitsubishi hdtv 1080, the screen cuts to black with green hatchmarks. The PS3 home screen displays but as soon as i enter the game mode the screen goes black


Good day!

That is usually happens when the TV is not compatible to the PS3 because the graphics of the PS3 is very resolution.

The qualification standards of that TV is not reaching the higher resolution of PS3 even your TV is HDTV.

Thank you very much for using fixYa.

Starting up Problems


I found it 2 min. ago. Ok here: while your ps3 is on hold the power button on the ps3 for you will hear one beep, keep holding it then when you hear the second beep take your finger off. Your ps3 should turn off. Now push the power button while holding your finger on it again, you will hear two single beeps, then a double beep, let your finger ago and a screen should appear with six options. Chose something like reset(or restore) file data or something like that and click yes, this wont do anything to your game/music/movie/etc. files but now your ps3 shall work.

Playstation 3 screen black


Ah the PS3, a hive of problems with that little gadget. Well this problem is simple, check the connecting wires on the rear panel, make sure the cords are properly connected to the appropriate ports, also make sure they are free of any dirt or muck. If this didn't help, you may want to return the unit with your warranty card and exchange it for a new one. Sony hasn't completely finished designing the PS3 yet, in a few years they will complete a prototype of the newer version, just like what they did with the PS2, remember it used to be fat? Then came the Slimline which proved to be more reliable. That's what will happen to the PS3 soon.
