    if it doesnt go to a menu screen if the power light just comes on with a blank screen and you have an internet connection hooked to the ps3 it is possible you have picked up a virus off of the internet this can happen to systems with internet connection but if you go to playstation.com and find there phone number they will send you a box to send the ps3 to customer service and fix the problem and send it back for free. I hope this helps.

    Im currently overseas does anyone know how to connect the ps3 thru the computer with paid internet service


    Need to have 2 network cards in the computer to do this, one for the internet and another to connect the PS3. Once this is done. Open Control Panel and select Network connections.

Click OK. The computer will promt and send a message saying some settings will not take effect till the connection is reset, click OK. Then reset the internet connection.
