Ps3 shut down itslef as soom it is on


If you've been playing it a long time it's probably overheated. Give it a few minutes to cool down. There may also be a problem with the fan that is causing it to shut off (which it is programmed to do, lest the system burst into flames after several hours of gameplay).

Downloaded update, next day I got the blinking red light


Mate if you turn your PS3 off when the hard drive is still operating or the power shuts of while playing a game and the PS3 is collecting or writing data to your hard drive, it will most definitely corrupt or even destroy your hard drive it is very common in PC's to.
Hint:
1. Do not shut down your PS3 while it is saving a game or collecting info from the hard drive. Rather quit the game then press your off key with one quick touch and let go of it, it will shut down when it is ready or hold down on the remote's PS button and select switch off system on screen.
2. If you live in a area where the power shuts off for no reason please please get your self a computer UPS(UN-INTERRUPTED POWER SUPPLY).
3. If you replace the hard drive make sure you buy a good quality hard drive like a Western Digital or Seagate.

Loss Of Sond When PS3 Gets Warm


probably the PS3 is overused, that's why it's warm. Shut it off when gets warm, or the least, after 4 - 5 hours of game play. That should help cool down the machines !

My PS3 shuts down only on PS3 games


The first thing I would do is a System Update!!!!!! This happened to me playing Army of Two until I Updated it. With games and Some Blu-Rays (Iron Man I had the same problem) require updates to play and function properly! Just hook up to your Network (Router or Modem) Create a Playstaion store account (To the Right on the PS3 Crossbar) Then go to the 2nd to left on the Crossbar, Then all the way up. Grab the update and you should be Good! This happened Twice to me, So now I always update and No probs! Good Luck!

Just bought killzone 2, using HDMI, the main menu sounds works just fine (the clinking sound) but when i play a game the sound dosent work!! tried to reset by holding down the power button till i heard the...


Hello, and sorry to hear you have PS3 troubles, but let me tell you the first thing i would do is try playing another game to make sure if this issue is happening only with this game or with all of them, if it happens only with this game, then its not the system, and it happens with all the games then it is a system issue. Try playing music via USB to see if you get any sound, and try playing a dvd or a Bluray movie to see if you have similar problems, try shutting the whole system off from the back for a couple of minutes and unplug it, make sure everything is connected properly. And lastly if it doesn't work after all that, then contact Sony for advanced support and consider a warranty replacement.
