Thanks, Isn't it strange that with no SD card inserted it comes right up on the TV? Thats what has me so confused and it used to work fine on my RCA TV. I never have been able to get it working on the Bravia or Samsung. I had done that before, but I used Escher. MAybe that's the issue. I'll flash with the official one.
@xmrdarky Can you please fill in the information as requested here (https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first) so people on the forum can try and help. Each setup can be wildly different and knowing all this goes a long way to assisting. Like @rbaker says, it sounds like it could be a power issue if you are running it just off a USB charger, such as a phone charger, but we wont know unless you give details.
Though not entirely the same configuration (it was a Pi 4), I encountered an issue wherein after the boot sequence the display would be completely blank. I eventually narrowed it down to the memory split setting - I had changed it, trying to follow the instructions for RetroPie 'manual installation.' Keeping it default resolved the problem.
@mitu Glad to know I'm not the only one having the issue with Arcade's Greatest Hits - The Atari Collection 1. The fact that both of these games play properly on ePSXe, using the same BIOS (SCPH1001.bin) and ROM files, leads me to believe that it's an issue with lr-pcsx-rearmed. I suppose, worst case scenario, I could try The Atari Collection 1 on SNES and Hot Wheels Turbo Racing on N64 if myself or anyone else can't figure out the issue on PSX.
