My playstation wont start up

3 replies 85 views Edited May 11, 2013

When ever I turn it on the green led is on and nothing comes up. I tried holding the power button when it first comes on to put it back to the default audio video setting and that didn't work. Is there anything I can do to get it to work even if I have to take it somewhere to get it fixed or at least get my data off of it to get it put on the new system if possible.

You can send your sysyem to Sony, a thIrd-pary company like Endless Electronics or Gophermods, a local company near you or last but not least you could try to ascertain what is wrong with it & try to fix it yourself, as for your data, that will be lost now unless you can get your PS3 to turn on for long enough to perform a back-up, or if you had previously made a back-up or have PS Plus!

if u put a disc in can u hear it do anything? when u say nothing comes up, is the screen black, does it look like anything is trying to appear? is your cables in correctly, or on the correct input? it prob is i just throwing those things out there. have u tried the safe mode? holding down the power button till it turns off and on, then letting go and holding it down again till u hear 2 beeps? anything come up then?

Yes more information is needed for us to try and help you. What cables are you using? HDMI, Standard Red Yellow white RCA jacks? Have you tried another TV or maybe another cable if you have one to spare?
