PS3 Woes, can someone help?

Asked by ShanEnri (4429points) July 20th, 2011

Bought a second hand 80gb ps3. It was working fine, but 2 things happened and grrrrr no picture, no sound. First thing I was getting it set up for internet when the electricity went out, it did come back on. Second it asked to update I clicked yes and it updated. When I tried to restart, no picture no sound. Tried the reset where you hold the power button down for so many beeps (6 I think), the problem is if the 6 reset steps come up I can’t see it. I have not unhooked any cables and I did check them and nothing has changed. I’ve Googled the problem and can’t find a solution. Can y’all help or should I call a repair service?

Test if the connection cables work, see if a friend of yours can lend you his cables for an afternoon or something. Does it behave normally otherwise? (do the fans spin, does the HD start up, etcetera)

It does behave normally. It just happened after the power outage and update. I tried hooking it up with a different set of cables but still nothing.

Have you tried hooking something else to the same port of your TV/hooking the PS3 to a different port (if any)?
