I just want to let everyone know that I had the same problem. This isn't a fix to make the machine work again. This is a fix that will let you get a disc stuck in the machine out when the ps3 won't power on. Turn the machine power off via the switch in the back. Hold the power button on the front of the machine down for about 15-30 seconds. Then, without letting go of the power button on the front of the machine, turn the switch on in the back. This made my machine power on for about 20 seconds, just long enough for me to get the disc out of machine. I could then take the ps3 back to the retailer I purchased it from. Just to clue everyone in on a possible cause of this problem, the woman from Sony techical support, the one who told me this trick, said that this is happening only when playing Activision games. For me it was Call of Duty 4. Binary Bob

Unfortunately it does not automatically switch. Turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on any TV or monitor. You can then configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to. You'll have to do the same thing when you take it back to your original location.

This is because you bought the ps3 from america, it will not let you play anything you buy from europe, i had this problem when i was in germany too i had bought the ps3 in michigan and tried to play in germany and got the same exact error code. i just ordered all my games from amazon. but eventually bought a new ps3 from their region. i dont know why sony does this i personally think it is to stop illegal burning via the internet.

Can Olevia LT37HVS 37" be used in Europe?


You would need to get the transformer/converter. It will convert the power from 120 to 220. If your going to a military installattion, most of the Housing is American standards. If you plan on living on the economy and not near an American installation then your TV would only be good for your DVD and games. PS3/Xbox. They have satalite and cable, but it all depends on where you will live. On American Soil...your good to go. Off..... doubt it!!

My ps3 would just turn off.. no lights blinking..


Hi there matey,

Best bet is to try a reset and format the disc.

Turn the PS3 of from the back, press and hold the power switch on the front and at the same time power it on from the back while still holding the front power!

wait until you hear 3 beeps, then turn it back on, this wil reset everythink.

then go to system and format and restore your PS3

hope this helps

PLAYSTION 3 WONT POWER UP AND CALL OF DUTY STUCK INSIDE


i suggest you look for a pinhole hole in the drive tray area where you can push in the end of a small paperclip.

this couls save you disc.

the ps3? i think you may have a power/battery issue, my dell laptop acted this way when it died.

does the ps3 have a battery? do you have a defective power cord? call sony, they value custumer relations -- want you to uy more sony.

good luck

Maybe you should use your free warranty. Refurbished or not, it will still work and that's what will make you happy. Use the free warranty while you still have it so that you don't risk ruining anything inside of the console.
