Same problem here, my ps3 was connected to my sanyo plasma with the hdmi cable, then the tv went down. i tried connecting it to an older tv (5yrs old) with the rca's and nothing. powered on, accepted games and dvds, but no picture/ sound. went to try on my sons tv, zip. went to try on my cousins lcd hdtv, nada. the whole reason i went with the ps3 was to avoind the xbox 360 rings of death. now this happens. probably gonna sell it for parts and buy an new one dont know if i want to send it in for repair. bunch of **** >:(

My Nintendo 64 when I was in the middle of a game it froze and the screen went all black and then it went to the tv screen saying no signal then.

Well one time I had this problem with my Nintendo 64 console when I was in the middle of playing perfect dark the screen had froze went black and then it went to saying no signal on the tv screen. The console did not over heat to cause this problem. I thought that it had died on me but I had tried a new expansion pack and it was fine after that. SOmetimes the expansion packs can blank out in the middle of a game play they can die without a warning then. Or it can say expansion pack needed or it will give the white flash that it is turning on but nothing happens after that then.

Ps2 slim new modded: black screen

Check the AV HDMI cables on the back of the tv. You may have the cable in the wrong sockets. Then try turning on the PS 2.
Hope this helps.

That's the Mother Board problem, you should take it to the Sony for servicing or qualified personnel.

My PS3 turns on to green light but nothing comes on screen

After the system boots up, hold your finger down on the metal spot where you normally turn it on. it'll completely reset all settings & hopefully set to the proper video output.
