[Answered] PS3 Black screen help?
Hi guys, I've finally joined this forum. I've been around since day 1 of JB PS3 but need to ask this question that no one so far has given me a answer and the question is what causes black sceen on playstations ?
You turn the thing on get the green light but nothing on screen no picture and no sound, does not matter if its hdmi or av.
I have come across four consoles in the last year like this, the latest one worked for about a hour then when I turned it on again no picture, no sound but stays on.
I think the gpu has failed but not sure, any ideas anyone ?
hold down the power button until you hear two beeps that will reset the graphics card, black screen can be caused by a number of things be very wary of buying used consoles with no picture especially after the release of nor flashers if the warrenty sticker has been removed and you see no signs of life from the hard drive light someone probably installed a nor flasher and flashed a backup from a different console and without a back of the consoles original per console key its bricked for good..
