Hey jlbrown55 , have you tried resetting the default settings? If not you just have the PS3 in standby (with red light on) and hold power till the systems turns on then 10 sec after and it will beep. Let it go right then and it should reset the defaults in about anouther 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, call Sony. It seems to be a growing problem. Good luck.

How do i fix my PS3 when I cant see anything, but the system itself looks to be functioning?


You are going to have to do a video reset. Witch takes the video settings of the system back to default. To do this, make sure you have everything hooked up. Power, HDMI. Then, turn the system on, push and hold the power button until the system turns off, then push and hold power button until you hear 2 "beeps" then the video settings will be refreshed. ^^

My ps3 screen wont show when i turn the ps3 on.


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

My playstation works fine but the screen wont appear


Try to reset your video. Make sure the red light is on in the front. Hold down the power button continuously until the system turns itself off. You should hear two beeps. If you have problems give us a call at 1-888-389-3038. We are a repair company and I can have one of our techs walk you through this. You can also check out www.wiredextreme.com.

Seems that the battery is low on power, when the controller is connected to the usb port of the ps3, all leds should start flashing, this show that the battery of the controller is recharging, when done the leds go off.
Note that before the leds start flashing that it can thake up an minute before it starts doing that.
Keep your ps3 on to recharge the controller.

Succes.

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted


There is an alternate way to restore your HDD. Turn off your system and when u see the red light, hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 4 beeps (1 alone, 1 alone, 2 together). It usually works on second try. it should show a screen and say hook up controller with a usb cord. Then it should show i think 6 options. Choose the restore option. it should work.

Hope it works and wish you all the best!
P.S.- I just got the 80010514 error on my ps3 and my ps3 games dont work anymore :(

Menu will not show up


Yes you can!
TRY THIS cmfin and trey!
Shut the system off in the back then un-plug and re-plug all cords.
Turn the power on in the back.
The ps3 should have a red light on in the front.
Push and HOLD the power button in front!
It will go through a red light to green beep at you then go back to red.
This should HARD reset it.
If you have ever changed tvs or played on a different tv the ps3 will sync itself to that tv.
SO a regular tv is different then my hdtv so it would need to be reset to play on a different tv!
I hope it helps!
