Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Picture goes to a lime green fuzz and then no piture or sound!

Bought last week and worked brilliantly. Power (green) and blue ray lights are on. Wireless controller is working but as I have no picture/sound I have no idea where I am. I've switched off/on and changed games etc. When messing around with wireless controller occassionally picture and sound will return only to go blank again a minute later. Can anyone help please?

    With my tv, the picture is being recieved by the tv, but I get no picture or sound coming from the ps3. I turned it off yesterday after playing in HD - when I turned it on this morning, no pic, no sound, but the tv did not read "no-signal" which it does when I have my coverter box to an open port. Everything else seems to be working fine. I have a 60gig I bought last year around this time. Any boards fried??? Thanks in advance.

Which AV connection are you using? HDMI or the cable supplied with the PS3, If using HDMI, you have to set the PS3 visual settings to HDMI, to do this, use the cable supplied with the PS3, and have the HDMI cable plugged in. Then while using the cables supplied with the PS3, switch the settings over to HDMI, then change the TV's input selector to your HDMI and confirm the settings changes. Hope it helps take care

How do i connect a Blu-ray player to my TV


It should connect best to the one with blue,green,red and then the two for sound--red and white---This is component hookup.

once connected you select the input via the remote or menu..

The ones with the yellow, white and red are composite (yellow is video and color and red/white are audio---doubt it will work off blue ray unless similar outputs on that.

Left half of picture has a green ghost like shade


The sounds like the light engine is bad. Sony is notorious for blobs because of the three LCD chip inside consisting of a red, green, and blue chip. The light from the lamp is reflected and then combined back together to form a brilliant picture. Unfortunately one of the chips is bad, or has melted due to extreme heat from the lamps. This can cause the color blobs on the screen. A lot of people experience blue or green blobs in the center or on the sides of their sets.

The playstation will not read games or Blue ray dvds, but will read regular dvd movies


Sounds like the blue-ray laser is dead. If it's still under warranty, call Sony for a repair. If you got the extended warranty from the store you bought it from, take it back there for a replacement.

Try powering on you unit press and hold the power button and the eject button for 30 sec unti the power light begins to flash thats going to reset the setting of your ps3, and if that does not work i would rec> sending it out so sony if its still under warranty or exchanging it from where u bought it.
