It might be a HDD issuse. Rec> swapping ur HDD( any 2.5 ' that is used in laptops will do) and if that does not work then you have a problem with ur ps3.

My ps3 wheni go to turn it on n press the button the lite goesfrm green rite back to red n wont turn on


This fix works for some models, so if it does not work for you please tell me your model number

Look at the bottom. This is what it looks like:

SONY

PLAYSTATION 3

CECH-*** = Your model number

SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT INC.

MADE IN XXXXX

You can do this fan test.
Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it, it will beep
The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.
After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and blink a red light.
When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.
Let me know how this goes!!

P.S. It will not harm your ps3, It's testing the cooling fan.

Cant sign in psn


Hello,
The entire U.S PlayStation Network is down at the moment. Sony Entertainment is working on this. The code is from the site not a physical error with your PS3. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this but to wait until the PSN goes back online.

I have never used my ps3 online....I'm at a hotel with free internet. I decided to try it. I tried both wired and wireless and going to the network settings. The IP address is ok but keeps timing out...

My ps3 will turn on and it will show the ps3 welcom screen and then the logo goes away and the screen sits there and i cant go any further.


Have you tried "soft reset" - when it's on hold your finger on the power button (on the front) for about 5 seconds until you hear it beep 3 times.
It should re-start after that and hopefully be okay.

If it doesn't then I think it's time to call Sony.

Hope that helps!

The ps3 turns on and gets to the "sony entertainment" screen and stays there dosnt load up the profile screen etc how do I fix this?


It sounds like your hard drive is crashing...just like a computer does. Try to find a friend with another PS3 and try to put your hard drive in their machine. If your hard drive is bad it wont boot up on their machine either.

I turn on the system and the Sony Computer Entertainment screen comes up with some type of graphic design and will not go any further into the menu.


ok my name is Juan I got 3 solutions for you the problem you have is with the VGA chip under the chip there is about a 100 small pins directly connected to the motherboard and one or more of this connections are not making a good contact some ps3's they don't turn on at all some turn on but they freeze right away and here is your 3 solutions
1._ trow your motherboard away
2._ buy another motherboard or ps3 I have motherboards on sale for 70.dls on ebay
3._ send your motherboard to me and I can fix it the only way to fix this problem is to put the motherboard in an special oven controlled by computer the computer will bring the temperature up to the point of melting the joints under the VGA to make any broken connection make contact again this is why the temperature has to be controlled by computer to bring the temperature up to the melting point of the solder and don't cause any other damage t any of the electronics and if you have saved games they will be there after your motherboard gets fix but if you buy another motherboard you will lose all of your games let me know what you think about it

My ps3 wont boot past the title screen!!


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

This will fix it for sure.
