    console problems!

    i made this thread because i have problems with some of my consoles, and because i think its a good thread, s ppl dont have to go around searing why they have a problem. just ask here and it should get answered.

    my problem: my ps3 is being really weird. one day i turn on my ps3 and the screen is blank. its on the right chanel and the hsmi cable is in. i thought it might have been the hdmi cable. so i buy a new one. still i have the same problem. blank screen. i thought it might be the tv (well i have a 1080p monitor). so i put it on my aunty's hdtv, and it works perfeclty fine, with both cables. so i thought it must be the monitor fault. so i connect my computer to the monitor through the hdmi cables. and that works perfectly fine. so i dont know what the problem is. its not the ps3. its not the hdmi cables. its not the monitor.

    please help me. im clueless?!?!?!

    ive had the ps3 and monitor for about a year.
    it worked perfectly fine up until now

    How do you know it's not the PS3 itself?

    Was the tv you were playing your PS3 on was the tv you always played it on. Because if your switch from lets say a 720p tv to a 1080p to tv you have to reset the PS3 to that setting. If that's not the problem then something is really wrong with your console. But don't worry if you have the money PS3 Slim comes out in about a week.

    Wait did you reset your PS3 after you unplugged from your computer monitor.

    Well there has to be something wrong with your tv. Maybe there something wrong with that tv's hdmi ports.

    nope. cos i connected my computer to it through the hdmi cable (ports) and it works.

    edit: well i think i am the most fail guy in the world. i was just messing around with the monitor to check if i can do some last minute thing to make it work. took out the power plug and put it back in and wa hey! IT WORKS!

    thanks for everybodys help!

    this thread doesnt need to go to graveyard. its still useful, for other people.

    it could be the specific tv. maybe you can call wherever you got the tv from?

    A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
