Ps3 shorted out

I have had my ps3 for a lil over a year, about 2 weeks ago I moved the ps3 back to my room (where i normally have it hooked up to a surge protector) When I plugged the system in I saw a spark and there was no picture at all only sound. The T.V. works perfectly fine and I treid hooking the system up to another tv and still nothing. Can someone please help me with this problem, I paid way too much and it is no longer under warranty.

All i can suggest is turning your ps3 off then bak on again, wait til the red light is on then hold it on til it beeps twice. This will restore it back to factory defaults.If nothing happens the you can try ringing sony. If they cant help then i guess youll have to buy a new one. Hope this helps.

Had my playstation 3 hooked up to my old television in the living room, i recently got a new tv for my room so i unhooked it and took it upstairs and plugged it in and it isnt working. no audio or video....


If it works with your Wii and not with you PS3, chances are your audio / video cables were damaged in the move. Try hooking up your PS3 to another TV with the same cables. If you have audio and video on a different TV with the same cables, it may be a problem with your HD settings. If the cables for the Wii aren't HD component cables and the PS3 cables are (or vice versa) this could be causing the problem, as the HD component cables have a different plug in than the normal video / audio settings. If this is the case, search around your TV to find the alternate connections and try those (these will probably require a different channel). If none of this works, I suggest you contact Sony about the problem and perhaps even send in your Playstation for repair. If you need anything else, let me know!

Ps3 won't cut on green light appears then yellow light then it flashed red


It's a power/motherboard problem. Happened to me 2 weeks ago. Call Sony and get them to repair it. Pretty much your only option. It'll be free if you've bought the PS3 in the past year and still have the receipt, however if you don't it'll be $150 bucks.

1st 80Gb ps3 model gets hot really fast..


Make sure that your not placing your system on any sort of carpet or rug this will cause the system to overheat. Also check the fan on the back of the system and make sure that the fan is clean and not full of dust and other sorts of stuff. If this does not stop then i would go buy a cooling fan for it just to make sure it dont fry the motherboard!!

PS3 will not display on TV


WHEN YOU START YOUR PS 3, KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE START BUTTON UNTIL YOU EAR A SECOND BEEP ( BETWEEN 5 & 10 SECONDS); THIS WILL RESET AND SELECT THE RIGHT CONNECTION . I HAD TO FIND THIS PROBLEM WHEN WE WERE SWITCHING FROM THE LIVING ROOM TO MY KID'S ROOM.

LET ME KNOW, HAPPY NEW YEAR.
