Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My browser isn't working!

I tried to move my ps3 to a location where I would have a better net connection, but when I turned it on, everything was normal, but the browser (where you find video, network, games, etc.) was not showing up on screen. When I tried to turn it back to stand by mode, the green light flashed for nearly half an hour before I decided to use the switch in the back. I tried just rebooting it, but I had the same problem. I moved it back to its normal spot, but I had the almost the same exact problem, except now the icons for the browser appeared as well as the clock, and the loading symbol at the top right corner is there also. I can connect controllers, load and eject discs, and hold in the connect button so that "turn off the system" and "turn off controller" appear, but without the browser, I cannot watch movies, play games, or do anything else. If it matters, my ps3 is an 80 gig and I've had it for a year and a half with no problems whatsoever until now. Someone help!

I fixed this problem, but I'm still not entirely sure what went wrong. If I'm not mistaken, my wireless connection to the internet was causing it. I took my ps3 to my friend's house to see if he knew anything (who does not have wifi by the way) and we turned on the ps3 and it worked just fine. To be sure, I switched the internet connection settings to wired before I brought my playstation back home. Unfortunately, it only gave me the option to restore the hard disk. Somehow, this didn't delete all my game data, but I may have just gotten lucky. I can't gaurentee this will work for everyone, but I seem to have fixed the problem by terminating my ps3's wireless internet connection

Mitsubishi rear projection tv, model WS-48311 - Lost audio after moving tv and re-hooking up cables. How do I get it back?

It sounds like this TV is being used only for the PS3. We'll need to troubleshoot this through a process of elimination.

If you're using Component Input 1 and audio, try using Component Input 2 and audio instead. If this set of inputs provides working audio and video - you can stop. Or, try going back to Input 1 once more. If Input 1 now works - you may have simply made a better connection. If it doesn't - then there's probably an issue with input 1 on the TV.

If moving to Input 2 above still didn't solve the problem, you should try using a different set of audio cables between the HDFury and the TV. If it now works, the original audio cables are faulty.

You can check the HDfury setup on another HDTV with component inputs with it connected to an HDMI cable. if the HDFury wors, you know the device and all the cables work. If you do this test and it works with your PS3, then you know that the PS3 is providing good video and audio signals via HDMI. If the problem follows the PS3 - then it's the PS3 at fault. If everything works perfectly on the second TV, then there is some issue with the audio amplifier / inputs / speakers of the Mitsu TV. You could get a cheapo stereo amp and speakers - or a set of computer speakers for audio - it all depends on how much you want to spend for sound.

Good lcuk!

Log into your router, type in your PCs web browser and configure a static IP for each of them. Also if your using wire-less its probably better to have at least one wired, both if you can. I've played my ps3 on a wireless-N router that was about three feet away and I lagging while playing killzone 2.

Pro ev0 09 not working on the net

Are you using a router to connect your computers to the internet? Your router holds all the info for your LAN. You can get into the router software via your web browser, and find the ip assigned to the ps3. Next put that ip into the DMZ of the router. POst back if you have questions so I can walk you through it.

Turning on PS3 causes home wireless network to stop working

I have the same problem. My router is located about 1.5 feets from the PS3 and when I turn on the console my wireless network barely works. Something I did was change the frequency of the wireless. It was working in channel 9 and now it's on channel 3 with no problem.

Ps3 network issue

First, wire your ps3 directly to the modem, cycle (reset) everything then try the normal connection procedures. You should only have the console, and the modem in the equation for testing purposes, this will let you narrow down the problem. You must turn everything off so that all of the information on both ends will auto refresh.
