Turn only the power on with the PS3. when you see the red standby light show on the front, press an hold down the startup button on the front until you hear it beep. that will reset the whole PS3 without deleting any saved data.

Hi your laser is bad or dirty. I'm assuming bad as when it froze during your game thats when the laser went out. So you will need to get a new laser.

My ps3 froze during the installation of firmware 3.01 and i can not do anything with it says to press ps button but nothing happens


Turn off the PS3 and then turn it on. Try to restore the PS3 to factory defaults. If that doesn't work then try to save any data you need off of the hard drive and format the hard drive. This will erase any bad downloads and firmware updates that the system was trying to do.

PS3 wont boot the operating system, so wont stay switched on!


It doesn't happen to everyone, but just about.

The problem is most likely related to the GPU on the motherboard.

But let's find out for sure.

Try booting the PS3 with the hard drive removed.

Let me know what happens.

Playstaion at home dowload froze PS3 wont boot up


Yeah, sony is going to tell you to send it in. Little bit of advice though, I was reading somewhere to NEVER turn the machine off while a game is running in it from the back. I always go to the game menu and go to "quit game" and then from the XMB menu go to "quit game", then go to "turn off system", then turn the switch off in the back. After reading some of the "horror" stories I don't want to have to pay $$$ to get a new ps3 because of some glitch in the system. But I would if I had too because microsoft sux. I am installing linux on my ps3 right now to see how that pans out, but I think you fried it buddy
