Hi...I noticed that, for a couple of weeks now, the PS3 splash screen featuring the warning is now a very light grey. I haven't really paid attention to it because I normally turn the console on without the tv set on it's line input and after a few minutes click the PS button before switching over. But I thought it was in color. Is anyone else's the same? There are no problems with the console, but I am just wondering how long it's been this way.

Thanks.

I thought the screen color had to do with what time of day it was. Have you changed your usual time to turn on your PS3, and does the PS3 have the correct time?

The correct time is set, and the grey colored opening screen (with the user names) is there regardless of what time of day I turn on the console.

I just don't remember it being that color, which is why I wanted to know if others had the same.

I'm pretty sure that the background color and all of that is changed based on the month, not the time of day. Try going into theme settings and forcing it to a color (instead of the automatically changing one) and see if when you reboot the PS3 the warning looks different maybe???

This is correct. The color changes every month.

Thank you all. Changing the Theme setting and rebooting didn't alter the color of the initial screen name view. The first time I observed it I got scared something was wrong. OMG, video output is in black 'n white! Good to know that it changes monthly-though it's still light grey as we enter January. smile.gif

Hey Westly-C, just got home from work and took a photo of mine booting up, and it is apparently b&w as well. Sorry for the cruddy picture quality, I'm not a photographer and the iPad was all that was handy! Perhaps this was changed in one of the firmware updates at some point. Anyway, if yours looks like mine, at least we know it's normal!

Yup, that's what I see. Thanks. Not a very inviting color to have appear, hope it changes soon.

rolleyes.gif And as of 9:30pm, the color has changed. The above photo from dannyday2-the top half is now a medium black.

Turn your PS3 on a few seconds before your TV. This way you won't see the start up screen color. Problem solved. biggrin.gif
