My playstation will not turn on ive tryd to use all the power points in my house and still not working can you pls help (ive left it unpluged all night and still not working when i turn it on)

hello. the most probable cause for a ps3 not turning on is broken power supply. my advice is to bring to your nearest sony service center. especially if your console is still under warranty. fixing it yourself might void the warranty. but if you still want to do it yourself buy yourself a power supply that is compatible with your console (40GB ps3=40GB ps3 power supply) here a link on how to open your ps3 but remember, do this at your own risk. still the best way is to bring it to a service center. hope this helps

Hi , was playing in HD at a mates house on PS3, now back home my tv is not HD, how can i set it back to video mode by only touching the consol?

Ok follow these simple steps to get your PS3 back to standard definition.
1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (Red light on)
2. Turn the PS3 on and keep holding the power button down.
3. After about 5 seconds you will hear a single beep, release the power button
4. The PS3 should now reset back to standard video

Hope this helps

Plugging the console into my house caused a breaker to trip. Resolving that my house does not generate enough power to play the console, anh attempt to plug it in at a friend's house only proved it no...

yes and yes. lots of places places fix it for about 70 euro. ps3s dont use that mush power. to definatly solve the problem run a cable from your fuse board and put the socket on its own 20 amp circuit breaker. this will definatly solve it.

My ps3 wont turn on help

try unplugging the power cord from the ps3 and putting it back on. if that doesnt work, your console might have kicked a breaker in your homes breaker box. on the ps3, always turn it off by the the back power switch.

PS3 Console Power

if you get no light at all anymore you may need a replacement power supply. Ebay offers a few, I have a working one for sale right now. it is fairly easy to replace but you need to open the console.
If the warranty is expired it won't make a difference.
If you still have warrantu send it in for a replacement.
