Black Ops blank screen

28 Replies 12,227 Views Created 10-11-2010

Hey guys, I'm just wondering if anyone else has the same problem as me.

 

I try to load the update and once it is done, the screen goes blank after the restart of the game. I've shut the game off and it says that it's been downloaded, so i press play on the home screen and it goes blank again...as if I have some sort of connection issue (blank black screen and sound)

 

I am clueless right now and have no idea. Anyone willing to help would be appreciated.

When you first set up the game did you adjust the brightness of the screen..? just a thought when you first start it up you have three panels that need adjusting.

 

You say you have sound but no picture could this be the issue ?....probably not but worth a look

That sounds pony mate!

 

We all used to reset our routers when we had COD problems lol but you could try that.

 

Could also place your router in the DMZ but I fear your problem is more serious than the average connection problems.

 

Maybe take the disk back and say it's faulty if the replacement is the same it's your unit. But I'm guessing you have tried another game and that works fine.

 

TBH I'm stumped but keep trying the basic stuff first.

 

Hope this helps

It's done it to me a few times today.

I left it and it eventually loaded, i noticed at one point it said "reading from hdd" and i am sure it something its loading of the disc.

I think I'm having the same problem!  I was starting Dragon's Breath and then all of a sudden, after "helping" push a door open, my entire screen went black, with the exception of the distance meter and ammo indicator ... all sound still there. :(

 

I tried rebooting, and get all the visuals up to the point where I left off.   I restarted the mission, and it went back to normal, but afraid that this may happen again.  Very odd!

I had exactly the same problem on a 250gb slim, the disc went back to the store to be replaced, the replacement disc gave me the same problems (screen freeze after hitting X to update) then froze during loading sequence.

 

A 2nd reboot and the game loads fine now evertime.

 

I have no idea whether it was the disc now or not but that solved the issue for me.

MAYBE A SOLUTION:

Normally my PS3 froze already when i started black ops... Now yesterday i started black ops WITHOUT signing into PSN.. Everything went well, i didnt have no frame rate issues or whatever, my ps3 didnt froze anymore..

I can remember that it was the same with another game in the beginning of the release, W@W or MW2. i cant remember

OP - This is the one thing that I never tried, so it may well be worth a go....

Yep. Had this happen to me. Had to restart the whole &£&£&£@£@£ mission! This is buggy, you need to tap the square to open the door. I did it and it kept going back to respawn at the small balcony. Eventually it worked and i could see again!

I've also had the same problem. Ended up with a black screen with only the distance to the next target showing. Three times I restarted the level on got back to the same point before I gave up to search the web for this bug. I've tried signing up the the Call of duty forum but no email yet. :xCry:

 

Really frustrating. I don't buy new releases that often but I expect there to be bugs but this pretty bad, if it stops to progressing.

There's a couple of folk on here saying that if you wait 20 secs before trying to door, it works. I've not tried it yet but it sounds as if it's worth a go. Still not good though.

Pressing the square button a number of times instead of holding it down got me through it.

When I try to run CoD Black Ops, the screen turns black and my TV give me a 'Unsupported Video Format' message. I have tried returning the game to the store and getting a new one but I'm having the same problem no matter what I do. When I try to run any old CoD, Battlefield or Red Dead Redemption I don't have any problem playing a game - any ideas??!

 

BTW: The Store manager mentioned that he though my graphic card on my PS3 Slim was about to die.

sounds like this manager doesnt have a clue, graphics cards dont just die. dont let a noob para you into buying a new system, he IS a salesperson after all.

If this manager is MB then err no hes not a salesperson hes a mod just trying to help people.

 

Gotta lol at the clueless comment. Thats like saying that bill gates doesnt have a clue about microsoft. he works with playstations. I think he would know what hes talking about a lot more than you do.

 

Oh and thanks for resurrecting this 4 month old thread :Stupid:
