Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

After I turn the ps3 off, the green light above the usb connections stays on. I dont recall this ever being this way. Is it going to get worser or is it ok to leave it as it is. Does anyone have this problem? or had this kind of experience? contact my email gamble46041@yahoo.com

Check if your remote start setting is turned on. When it switched on, even when your ps3 is off, the green led is on and the fan of your system stills rolling

Go to youtube and look up how to manually take out a stuck cd. After the cd is out, the system should work fine again.

Hi.when i turn on my ps3 it freezes at the main screen.please say i dont have to buy a new 1,i dont have the money. :(


Ok, if it is simply the image that is freezing and it is still staying on then there is hope for the PS3.
If however it is turning off with 3 beeps and flashing the red light then that is serious.

Please try the following if it is just the display freezing :

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep one more time and turn off into standby mode (red light on)

Release the power button

Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and this time there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

The PS3 will start up asking you to connect the controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then continue.

After doing the above a menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". This will re-install the PS3 software if it has become corrupt. Ignore any messages about corrupt hard drive, this is normal. If this step does not work try the above again but select option 4, then 5 if that doesn't work.

One of these options should get your PS3 up and running again.

When i turn on my ps3 the light go red green and stay green no blue light, and i get the message cannot start the correct hard disc was not found. i've took the hard drive out and put it back, i've also...


Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

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

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

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.

This might put the PS3 on order.

Good luck

Play station 3 won't play disc's r dvd's just stay's on home page!! What's the problem??


First thing to do is purchase a DVD laser cleaner and run that through the optical drive. If it still wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put the unit into safe mode and try restoring the filing system. To get it into safe mode, follow these instructions: hold down the power button while the console is in standby. The light will go from red to green and it will beep once and then flash green and beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red. once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finger off. The light will stay green and you'll get the screen asking you to connect the controller. After connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is the "restore filing system" this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons (the xmb) You will also need to update your firmware, click on the link below to start this update:
