Please help -- PS3 won't display on TVs anymore. –
Sorry if this is the wrong section. I'll try to briefly explain what happened:
I had a PSN game (Unfinished Swan) that I needed to get working again through ReactPSN, so I got the latest version of ReactPSN and the required RAP file.
It had been long since I did this, so I wasn't exactly sure how it was done (What buttons to press), and none of the ReactPSN tutorials really seemed that clear on that.
It said hold down circle, but this didn't seem to work, so I tried triangle and then L1+Triangle, which created little pkg bubbles on XMB.
I figured these were just pkg fix files and tried installing the one for The Unfinished Swan. After doing so, I booted the game. It showed the 2 instruction screens telling you how to use the move controller / camera with the game, and then my TV abruptly lost connection and displayed a 'Mode Not Supported' message (samsung TV).
I've tried this on another samsung TV and got the same message. Holding down the boot button until the second beep doesn't help because the TV just continues to display the error message.
It's a European PS3 being used in the US on a US TV.
I'm a little worried about this, even though my PS3 seems fine otherwise.
PS: If there is a more appropriate section for this thread, please move it. Thank you.
hold the power button until your ps3 turns completely off, then hold the power button till you hear two consecutive beeps in a row
this should bring up your recovery menu. you should be able to restart your ps3 and it should come on your tv. also, for reactpsn i think your supposed create a new profile on your ps3 called "aa", log into that new profile, then put the usb in the furthest most right usb port on your ps3, then when you start reactpsn, don't press anything. your ps3 should restart with the content installed.
I'm not 100% though, its been awhile since i used reactpsn. I'm pretty sure that's how it goes though
Thanks for the reply, Bulrog. I tried holding it until 2 consecutive beeps are heard using two different Samsung TVs, but nothing comes up when I do. It still just shows the error message.
you said your ps3 won't show anything on the screen, and what is the error message that you get from?
It's from the TV itself. When the PS3 is off it says No Signal, then when I turn on the PS3, it's supposed to pick up the signal and display XMB, but instead all it does is switch from 'No Signal' to 'Mode is Not Supported'.

Surely someone out there knows what this is about and how you deal with it?
Yea sony knows :/ and makes you pay $100 for repair
I'd like nothing better, but the TV just won't display anything. No matter how I boot my PS3 (including into the recovery menu), the TV won't display it. It just says the mode isn't compatible.
