Yes you can!
TRY THIS cmfin and trey!
Shut the system off in the back then un-plug and re-plug all cords.
Turn the power on in the back.
The ps3 should have a red light on in the front.
Push and HOLD the power button in front!
It will go through a red light to green beep at you then go back to red.
This should HARD reset it.
If you have ever changed tvs or played on a different tv the ps3 will sync itself to that tv.
SO a regular tv is different then my hdtv so it would need to be reset to play on a different tv!
I hope it helps!

My gamecube will turn on to set the settings, after I set them I put in a disc and then the power shuts off. I have two sets of power cords I tried them both and it does the same thing with each of them.


  • System settings were lost:
    You need to reset the time and date from the Nintendo GameCube Main Menu. To access the Main Menu, turn the power ON while holding down the A button on the controller. Follow these steps to reset the time and date:
    1. From the Main Menu Screen, go to the Calendar Screen by pushing RIGHT on the Control Stick.
    2. Press the A Button to display Calendar Menu choices of Date or Time.
    3. Use the Control Stick (UP or DOWN) to highlight your menu item and press the A Button to select your choice.
    4. Use the Control Stick (LEFT or RIGHT) to highlight the number you want to change, then (UP or DOWN) to adjust the value.
    5. Press the A Button to accept your choice.
    6. Press the B Button to return to the Calendar Menu or the Main Menu.
    7. Pressing the B Button before accepting your choice with the A Button will return you to the Calendar Menu without changing the settings.
    If the same error continues to happen, you will need to have your system repaired as it is likely you have an internal battery malfunction. Please use our convenient repair options.

    Hand does not show up on menu


    The main unit is not receiving the signal from the remote,
    It can be a couple of things...

    More than likely you have two remote handhelds. You may be using the wrong handheld to choose the options. Try the 2nd handheld.

    Check to make sure the batteries are charged and handheld is ON

    Make sure the receiver is in plain sight and not blocked

    Nintendo game cube says an error has occurred,said to turn it off and check the instruction booklet


    Is it the game or the game cube that is doing that. If it is the game then it is probably scratched. Try using toothpaste to clean. If it is the game cube that is broken then open it up and see if anything looks broken

    You can try the auto-diagnosis. heres how
    Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu. 6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc. 7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system. 8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button. 9. In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen. Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc. 10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point. NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted.
