Samsung TV Is Not Picking Up A Playstation 3 HDMI Signal


If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.

When I turn on my Playstation 3 the menu doesn't


Hello,

This is most likely the system has been overridden, or corrupted. You may need to replace the hard drive :)

When i turn the playstation on the menu does not come up just the background and i can not do anything


i had this same problem a few weeks earlier. It might tell you something like you might lose your memory, just restart the system and it should be working fine. If it keeps doing the same thing as in not showing the menu then either you need to get your ps3 checked out or it has crashed

Ps3 turns on has background but no menu bar


Switch the PS3 off (Red Light). Hold your finger on the power button until the PS3 switches on and off. Take your finger off and hold it in again. It will come on. Hold it until you hear a double beep and take it off immediately. You will then be taken into a recovery menu. It will ask you to connect your controller via USB. Choose option 3 - Restore File System (Do not try any other option as it will erase some or all data on your HDD). It should work after this.

I hope it helps.

Phone rings 6 rings before voice mail picks up


Sure. If you had bothered to mention which model you have.

The same internet where you found fixya can also be used to find memorex.com.

How about this? http://www.memorex.com/manuals/MPH6990-03OM.PDF If your model is the 6990 or close, you press MENU 3 times and can set the rings to 2,4,6,8 or tS which answers on the 4th ring if you have no messages or 2 rings if you do.
