Proof Of Purchase

You recently answered my question about the PS3 red light problem, thanks for that. :-)

You said that to have the system replaced i need both the warranty and the proof of purchase. Do you mean the original proof of pruchase? I bought the PS3 off of eBay - is this proof of purchase or do I need the original proof of purchase?

I am afraid you will need the original proof of purchase, if you still have the details in you email account about the person you purchased it from, try to contact them and ask them for the receipt if they have one.

    I should add though that if you have only just purchased this from ebay and you are having this problem, then contact paypal about refunding you. This is not what you thought you was buying

When I press my PS3 button on controller, all lights flash for 10-20 seconds then shuts off. it doesn't even turn on the system. If I turn on system manually,it comes on for about the same amount of time...

if this is a woireless controller, it means that the controller needs to be charged. If this occurs when you have the controller connected to the PS3, it means either the USB cable you are using is bad or the rechargable battery in the controller is dead.

Ps3 comes on then it has 3 red blinking lights?

Have you tried resetting it? If not, try to switch it of , unplug PSU cord for 30 seconds, then plug in cord and push and hold power on button for 5 seconds, you should heare some beeping sounds and the PS3 system should reset and restart.

The yellow light of death has appeared what can i do?

Sorry, I'm copy and pasting my answer to you:

You have the Yellow light of death. The YLOD is the Red Rings of Death, except for the PS32_bing.gif.

I recommend to service your system (if it's out of warranty). About half the price of a Sony2_bing.gif repair and you get YOUR system back, unlike when you send it to Sony2_bing.gif where you get some other random refurbished system. WE has a automatic 90-day warranty, the same as Sony, but WE also gives you the option to extend the warranty up to 4 years. the WE warranty covers the entire system, not just what they fixed on it.

If it is still under warranty, set up a service request with Sony using these instructions:

Make sure you erase all of your personal info off of your PS3 and follow the instructions on the page above.

Good luck!

Oh, and if you send your system in to Sony, you will get a different copy of the game that is stuck in your system packaged separately and later than when you will get your system back from Sony.

My B and w zepplin starts off with blue light and as soon as i connect my or any other ipod it flashes red with a low off and on tome coming from the speakers

This sounds like the known fault which all these units exhibit (apart from the very recent ones). Return the machine to your dealer with your proof of purchase. B & W will rectify the fault.

PS3 shuts off right as its turned on

Hi, this is heat related and, this issue may have damaged your power supply board. if the red lights continue to flash after you have unplugged this unit for 5 minutes, this will confirm power board failure and, you will need to replace this circuit board.

You can purchase a replacement power supply unit at this link below and i also advise to purchase a cooling adapter for your system as well. this will prevent this form happening again in the future.

Ps3 after switch on 2,3 seconds later it switchs off

i have exactly the same problem. have been in touch with playstation themselves they say it is either motherboard or one of the other major parts in the playstation. my ps3 is 2 years old now (out of waranty) playstastion said that if i can provide proof of purchase they will exchange it free of charge even though it is a year over its warranty date. if you cant find your proof they will replace it for £150.

System shuts off and turns to red light standby

Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

No game reading

my ps3 worked fine util i installed the 2.10 version update,and then it quit reading games [blu ray movies and regular dvd's would still play] i called sony and the guy told me to restore system setttings and install version 2.20. after i installed this version from their website my ps3 would not read anything. if you still have proof of purchase sony will send you a refurb. but my guess is after you install the same version again you will still be sol and after your 1 year warranty is up sony will not have any else to do with you[xbox offers a lifetime warranty] now i have an xbox360 and a $700 freaking paper weight. THANKS SONY!!!
