PS3 Blank Screen
Ok today I was just having a nice game of Killzone 2 and decided to switch off my ps3. Coming back to my ps3 (about 10mins later) I switched it on and...
one big blank screen.
Tv = Sony Bravia kdl-26v4000
ps3 = 40gb
Connected via hdmi and AV neither worked.
Tried on another tv didn't work (Standard Def.)
Tried the switch of holding the button, the switch on holding the button to reset the video settings.
I CAN access test mode and tried a) resetting default settings. b) installing fw again. Nothing.
The ps3 appears to switch on fine light wise. However the controller doesn't connect properly wirelessly and goes off after a bit wen connected via USB.
I plan to contact SONY tomorrow but i'm hoping there is a way to fix this without having to send it back or losing game saves.
i got same situation but i got a
and i cant even access test mode
Hmm never heard of this.
I was thinking maybe the HDMI cable was messed up or something, but since you also tried AV and another tv, I can't see why that would be the problem.
You can see the TEST MODE, meaning it obviously has video coming through.
Unless someone else knows the solution, I guess you should send it into Sony (hopefully you had it within 2 years so you don't pay for the repairs).
Sounds like the Firmware is damaged. Try restoring it by burning the latest firmware to disc and reinstalling it from there.
