[Answered] ps3 black screen help?
I have a ps3 80gb and I am having trouble getting it to turn on. I have tried it on 4 different tvs and I have tried 6 different cables 2-HDMI, 2- original 3 prong and 2- monster cables. With the Monster cable I can get a black screen with 3 to 4 wide white lines racing with them going up and down, I get nothing with the HDMI cables and the with the original cables I get a solid black screen and no more.
I have tried to reset the video and that dose nothing for getting a pic. The green light comes on and you can hear the ps3 running far as the fans and all you can see the HDD light flash some and you can insert games and see the blue light on the ps3 but no video or sound on the ps3 nor will the controllers connect to the ps3. Any help on this problem would be great, Thank you!
Well popular consensus agrees with the GPU being fried. There are many things to check when choosing a motherboard than the model number. The drives are not interchangeable from system to system easy. they have chip boards that are specific to each system, and they made minor changes every 45 months for the past 6 years.
I do not recommend trying this as it is very costly and time consuming when the parts don't mach. Then drives wont read video and audio problems will still remain.
But you can get lucky, and it all falls into place. I have a bach. in electronics and tried this with much trial and error. Make sure you find the DATE made when starting to buy parts, Along with model number and serial number.
GOOD LUCK hope this helps! If you feel i deserve it +rep me.
