This could be a firmware problem. Initially, what you can try is to unplug the power cable from your PS3, unplug the jacks as well. Leave it off and unplugged for about 10 minutes. Then plug it back in then try to turn it on. If the same problem persists, you can try to reflash the firmware of your unit. You can download it from Sony's website together with the instruction.

I have a Playstation 3. Starting tonight, everytime I put in NBA 2K11 the game will load to the main screen and ask me to press start. Everytime I press start me game freezes and I have to restart my...


Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

if there is any way that you can get to your ps3's main memory, either restore your system or open up your ps3 and find its memory and take it out and put it back in.

Press the Cancel button. While the wake mode LED is blinking (either alarm or radio) press the Wake Mode button. The wake mode LED should now be off. To turn off the Nap function before the alarm sounds, press and hold the Nap button for 3-5 seconds. The Nap LED should stop blinking and be off.

Snooze alarm


Like everyone else here I have accidentally hit the NAP button and couldn't turn it off. This morning at 2am I accidentally hit it with my husband in bed. I decided one and for all to guide this out. By flashlight and my cell phone i Googled a solution. I came across many, none of which worked. I resorted to trying methods that were posted for other models of this brand of clocks. The solution that I found that worked was to hold down the back part of the NAP button until the seat the time displayed and the nap light off. By back part of the button I mean hold down the tiny section closest to the rear of the clock. I got this solution from instructions for model RP3721A clock. It took me 17 minutes.That's just 3 minutes before the alarm would have gone off.
