Why do I have no picture?

Hi all,

I've got an issue with my Playstation 3 60gb PAL unit. It's currently not displaying a picture through HDMI or Component. I have done the following:

  • Tried another TV with another set of cables
  • Reset the PS3 video settings using the power button

I have recently fixed an XBox 360 with the same issue by replacing the XClamps and was wondering if there was a similar repair guide for the Playstation 3? The only ones I found from Google are wanting money so I'm assuming they're scams.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi, no, not at all. Everything is working in the background, I can actually hear it. Just no picture at all.
