My Ps3 Has Huge Problems. Help Please?


OK so my Ps3 is a backwards compatible model made in 2007 of February

My problems started with a game called RAGE Anarchy Edition.

Once I had died and was taught how to De-fib myself I was to kill. on my 3rd kill my ps3 reset itself.

This was my first problem. I ended up having to reset my Ps3 Via a Game called Skyrim Legendary Edition. Yes it does act as a storage media device.

Anyways it seemed to work but after the same problem occurred three time I am now left with having no picture and no way to go into the 6 options to restore system or system update. Option 5 and 6.

I do not use online accounts and this was the easiest way to ask help.

Is there any way to fix my Ps3 Without having to send it in?

I’m sitting on a gold mine since these models are extremely rare and not in circulation any more.

Hate to lose what will be called a vintage in 10 or so years.

  1. try holding the power button down untill you hear three beeps(i blieve it is) It will reset the picture back to normal taking your hdmi setting off.

  2. EDIT: Good details, thank you. So with that being said, then have you tried another HDMI cable? Or tried switching ports, using the standard A/V cable instead of HDMI? That’s the next step I would recommend. After that, if it’s still not working, then I would say it is a hardware issue.

  3. What can I say , it is 6 years old and most of the ps3 consoles that old are no longer working so maybe you just need to toss it and buy a new one? You seem to think it’s a gold mine , but it’s not , they sell for around $110 online which is less than the newer models sell for used , sony made several million if that model so it’s not rare or hard to find and since psn has ps2 games now the only thing that made it desirable , being ps2 play is not a factor anymore so you just have an old console that’s in bad condition not a rare gem that is worth a lot of money

    anyway , it probably just needs to be reset so the video settings can be set for the tv , ( hold the power button for 10 seconds ) , and if it doesn’t get fixed by the reset you should get a new ps3 and be glad your old one lasted twice as long as most ps3 consoles do
