My son turned his PS3 off during a system update and now everything he tries to play won't let him and says error code 8003051e. What do I do to fix this problem?

Ok what I recommend doing is these steps and you should be gaming again:
1. Start Ps3 and in the title menu to Account Management. 2. Click Account Management. 3. Go to System Activation. 4. DO Ps3 System NOT "Psp System". 5. Choose game then select deactivate ps3. (Why? so that way you can log in as your profile later.) 6. Once done go to System Settings. 7. Go down until you see Restore PS3 System. 8. Click it and select yes. (Once you say yes it will restore your ps3 to factory settings, It will take either 2 hours - 8 Hours. Depending on how much memory it has built in.) 9. Once done Download newest updates and let it download. 10. Once complete you should be playing video games in no time. Have Fun Gaming.

If your PS3 has 4 USB ports in it, it will be able to play old PS2 DVD games. The newer versions only have 2 USB ports and have the DVD-playing option taken out.

My PS3 wont boot. Says "Correct hard drive not

I would suggest:
1) With PS3 off 2) Remove drive 3) Turn PS3 on 4) Let it complain about missing drive 5) Turn off PS3 6) Put drive back in 7) Turn on
If it still complains, try safe boot recovery mode again, choosing option 3, then again with option 4 -- If it still doesn't work, it's not looking good, bit hopefully those should sort it unless the drive really is kaput.

The PS3 will not play via hdmi. I start it on the cables go to display settings and slect hdmi the screen goes blank for awhile and then goes back to av

Instead please try the following steps to solve your PS3 problem :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

When I turn on my PS3 the only thing I see it he login screen.

The following steps are to perform a system factory restore which should clear the hard drive of any files causing this issue. Please bare in mind that you will lose all saved games, downloads etc.

Power off the PS3 using the switch at the back, then power it back on

Hold the power button until you hear three beeps

At this point the initial console setup should be displayed - go through this procedure and run a full format.

Sony advise that you may not get output using HDMI after resetting, so have the AV cables handy if possible.

Gamer profile vanished

This will only fix it if it is a software problem
You will lose all saved data doing this fix.

1st...Make sure your system is in standby mode (OFF, with the red light)....

2nd...Hold down the Power button..the system will boot..however keep holding the power button until it shuts down, then Hold the power button again will hear it BEEP...when you hear two BEEPS back to back ..release the power button. This will put the unit into the hidden recovery menu (Kinda like Safe mode for the PS3. You will have to do this a few times to fix any software issues.

3rd. Choose the Rebuild OS option..this will rebuild the OS for the unit.

4. The system will restart. Now complete any steps that the unit will tell you. Then go back into the recovery mode described in step 2.

5. Now you want to rebuild the File system option,,,complete this option.

When the system restarts you may get the message that the HDD is will reformat..this is why I told you to back up all your saved data.

You can also use this menu to reflash your firmware with the latest update. However you have to do it via SD card or storage device linked or inserted into your PS3.

Cant connect a big ben interactive controller to a playstation 3

bigben controller and ps3
i had this problem with bigben mega pack bought with ps3 nov08
the problem is caused i find that the sony wireless controller supplied
has been already allocated as number 1 controller, this has to be changed while the bigben matches
the FIX:
boot the machine with sony controller and go into
settings\accessory settings\reassign controllers\ and re-assign the sony as number 3
(use left stick to move numbers up/down)
plug in the bigben receiver unit into a usb slot and then switch on the bigben
now the receiver light should now stop flashing and the bigben now has a single light agains number 1
go again into re-assign controllers and change the bigben to number 2
then re-assign the sony controller from number 3 to number 1
close down system
re-boot using the sony PS button (the bigben PS button does not boot PS3)
the sony should now be indicating that it is again number 1
the bigben receiver unit should have a steady red light but
the bigben will have all the lights flashing - click the PS button and they will stop
it now should only showing one light next to number 2, so is assigned as number 2 conroller
thats it
Note: I wanted to use 2 controllers for the game 'littlebigplanet'
Now if the two controllers are on, the game asks to assign a profile for the
other controller when it opens, so then you choose another user (that u have created)
Then another rag doll drops into the pod that is controlled only by the bigben (user2)
