20 Most Recent Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console Questions & Answers


Taken from a thread on the PlayStation forums:

The solution to this one is a real pain.
Basically, what you need to do is delete the user from the ps3, create a new user, and assign it to your psn id, and then sync trophies.

I'm sure there is an old thread about this somewhere, because I had this error last year, so I won't try a step by step walkthrough, unless you can't find the other thread.
Let us know how you get.

P.s. as some games are locked to user as well as psn id, create a new user with the same name as your old one, after you have deleted it, if you get what I mean.

try looking for updates and patches for the game, else, reinstall all your fifa 09 files.

if this doesn't work, verify it there are any problems with your disk (dust, for example),

is the problem continues, restore your ps3 system . (or first re-update the system by downloading the latest update in Playstation Site)

I wrote a tips and tricks article check it out: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7628915-awesome_way_fix_ps3_wont_read_discs or since im nice i wrote it again just for you Please help me by rating me highly thanks and here you go...
This is what the PlayStation Forum says:
1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore
Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

MY WAY:

Sign in

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option)


go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies

check the disc if it has fingerprints or scratches if it does then thats your problem

if you have the 60GB sos mate they have alot of problems

or maybe try this put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it then switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it then put it back on then the fan test should be working this may cool it down

it may be overheating
if this problem still continues go out and buy a inter cooler from a shop

if it STILL CARRIES ON phone up sony

Sony Network is experiencing sporadic outages in certain areas today.
It may be a scheduled system upgrade or maintenance - but be assured you are not the only one facing this issue.
No UP time has been announced by Sony - they are working to get the system up and running as soon as possible.
The problem is not on your end.
Keep trying to connect.

You need to configure port forwarding on your router. For this you will need to know the IP address of your PS3 (would be best if it was static).

Here is a decent tutorial.

Have you tried this PS3 on another TV?
We've had some older TV's that will do that on their own... that's the only reason I ask.

http://www.gamespot.com/pages/forums/show_msgs.php?topic_id=26081756

Well there are various opinions on this forum, but the one shows up most definitely as a solution is to prevent the ground prong on the PS3 power cord from getting into the socket, something to do with a ground-loop issue. They suggest getting a 2-prong to 3-prong adapter/extension, or, cut off the ground-prong.
Other things mentioned elsewhere include purchasing non-oem video cables... people suggest that the ones which come with the PS3 ****.

I myself have never experienced these issues, so I cannot verify them first-hand.

About the screen shakes... here's a fixya link which seems to get to a successful resolution.. check it out:

Can you access the internet with a computer still?

Try rebooting the PS3 and the router. Reboot the router first, wait a few minutes, then reboot the PS3.

Which firmware version are you running?
