I'm sick of searching online just to see "Reset the video"

Heres the problem. I have the old 20gb PS3.
Finally, my video blew out (I'm using the Yellow White Red plug in).
I get sound, but no video.

HDMI is not an option to me. And yes, I already tried "Resetting the video"

Now, here's what confuses me, when I boot the system into safe mode, I can get a picture with a menu. But seeing as how I have 3rd party controllers, I can't get past the "Plug in a controller and press the PS3 button" so... yay.

How the hell am I going to get my picture back up? I really can't afford a new system.

I doubt it's your PS3 or the cables, it's more than likely the RCA jack on your TV because the same damn thing happened to me with my old PS1 back in the day. Basically, the jack broke but it only affected the video... but not all video display sources for some god-awful reason. Try wiggling the port in your TV a bit while your system is on. If need be, come hijack me tomorrow and I'll see what I can do.

When you turn on your PS3 make sure you hold down the power button when turning it on. Eventually it will force itself to slow shut down and it will be off again. Power it back up and it should be at it's default video settings.

Hope this helps

So, I delved deeper.

What happened was part of the board fried on the PS3, causing the system to no longer beable to detect the HDD. It actually was not a video issue at all. What happened was the "Load up Sound" you hear when booting was the only thing that completed, but it was actually frozen before the image could even load.

So I up and sold the fucking thing.

Got $13.07 for it >.>

$80 for the console
-$20 for referbishing costs
-$40 for the no controller
-$6.99 for no controller charge cable
(approximate prices)

I said screw it and sold the damn thing for that much.

In turn, I traded in my Controller I bought for the damn system (two days ago). It was a combo pack of DualShock+Little Big Planet. Got $60 cash back for that to offset the horrendous penalties, and walked away with 7 games.

Fixing it would have requiring either replacing the motherboard in it. Personally, way too lazy, nor do I have the finances to do so.

So... Yea >.>
