I would blame the bulb blowing, especially if they were on the same electrical system. One way you could stop this from happening again is to have anything electronic (your ps3) on a surge protector, then if you would have a power surge or anything like that, the surge protector would fry and the electronics hooked to it would be fine. Rather pay 12 bucks for a surge protector than a couple hundred for electronics :)

Is there a way I can reboot it if I don't have a computer or internet


Reboot as in wipe the harddrive of the ps3 completely to factory settings? There is an "erase all data" option in the menus that should work. Not sure if it keeps the system updates or not. Make sure to back up any saved files and/or data before the wipe. Hope this helps.

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.

The playstation 3 plays dvd's but not games it does not load them up at all.


1 Discs that are not compatible with the system cannot be played. 2 Games that can be played on this system have to be on PLAYSTATION3 format software. Playstations format software canbe played but may not perform correctly. Please check if the games you wish to play are on this format. 3 Please check if the data for PS3 format software is saved on the system's hard disk. The data is displayed under Game - Saved data utility

I put a game in the unit and nothing happens. My games will not start why?


I had the same problem... You probably have some corrupt game data on there. I backed up my saves and wiped my ps3, seemed to do the job.

The green light on my ps3 works but my blue 1 doesnt show up


I had kinda the same problem, but my ps3 was able to get to the home screen. I never tried the problem out on a ps2 game, but when I put anything BlueRay into the system, I would also get that blank, blue AV screen. Because I was able to access my home screen, I looked around and found that I had corrupted data on my system. Now, I'm not sure how to get you back to your home screen, but if you're ever able to, the only solution that I found was to wipe the hard drive of the corrupted data, by going to the Game option on the home screen, then scrolling down to either Game Data Utility or Saved Data Utility. That's where you'll find it. Unfortunately, this will mean you'll have to wipe your entire hard drive of all your saved data.

I know it sucks, but I hope this helps...
otherwise have people look at it.
