Ps3 won't come onscreen

7 replies 49 views Edited Dec 16, 2011

Last night I used a free playstation plus code to get a free 30 day trial. after I downloaded marvel pinball, and the new firmware 4.0. I played marvel pinball for a bit the pressed my PS button till the turn off system menu came up. I turned off the system and went to sleep, Now this morning when I turned it back on, it came on fine but it doesn't display on my T.V. my screen isjust blinking!! What is this and what do I do?

OH! Did that BULLET hit you?????

try resetting the video by holding the power button from standby (red light) for 2 beeps.

if its not the cable, then try option 3 "restore file system" in the safemode menu.

it worked for me when my ps3 was showing a black screen.

When to use Safe Mode


Execute safe mode when the PS3 is experiencing the following symptoms:

  • When the PS3 is started up, the XMB™ menu is not displayed (only the wave screen background appears)
  • When the PS3 is started up, nothing appears on the screen
