Turn off system via hard switch in the back , turn back on while pressing and holding the power button in front, this will reset the vid settings on the PS3 to 480i. From there you can reset your settings.

We were playing a game and the tv screen went black then we ejected the game and the wii console will not shut off and now it wont play a game or nothind then we tried to unhook it and the light stayed...


Power light is green or orange - TV screen is blank
    If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.
    1. Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.
    2. Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update (how to), and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.
    If you continue to experience this issue, there is a problem with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired.

DS lite, power is on but nothing happens


Ditto... except my daughter is 10. Both screens remain black, are fully charged and green light stays on for more than 4 minutes.

Xbox 260 wont turn on


Hello.
It sounds like one or more of the GPU connections has a bad connection. This means it is very close to dying from the 3 lights of death. Your unit needs to be sreviced by a professional or Microsoft.
