My buddy's wrecked XMB
Hey guys. My buddy is having some weird problem with his PS3. Currently his XMB is looking like this:
and even the recovery option doesnt solve the problem.
I am suspecting a similar problem like 360's ANA Chip failure. So any opinions?
Appreciate your kind feedback.
i have the same problem on my friends PS3 .after that glitch picture it will gone right ? i mean no video
and did you tried to update it ?
He updated the firmware and it was running fine. Thats the weird part. One morning and BAM! Distorted XMB
ohh so its not like my friends one .my friends appear the same pic but after a few sec the video will gone
Thanks for the help anyways. Gonna get him to retry with another hdmi cable.
It looks like the PS3's graphics chip is fried/done. What PS3 model is it? (20Gb/40Gb/60GB/old 80GB with 4 USB ports/?)
I'd try another HDMI/Component/Composite cable. If that does not work, prepare to call Sony.
retried with another hdmi cable. yup its the graphics chip.
