Sony 98097 PS3 wireless 2.0 Just falshes red

Hi people, having a major issue with the bluetooth heaset for PS3. I bought it 2 weeks ago and used it once and worked fine. Now it will not turn on, even after pressing reset, and even the master reset. It will flash red for 2 minutes and then stop while plugged in via usb. It will not charge, will not turn on and is unable to be discovered by PS3, phone or laptop. I have read that alot of people are having the same issue and guess Sony have made a bad batch. Im unable to return to store as lost reciept. Is my best option to contact sony and ask for a replacement due to being faulty and still under gaurantee. Or is there a fix for this?? Many thanks in advance

SOURCE: PS3 controller Problem

I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.

I have the answer for the fan issue on the KDSR50XBR1!!!!!

Ok, I think I have the answer for the BIG FAN failure. I recently did a similar fix on the spindle of an xbox 360 and it is identicle. Ok, this is an EXTREMELY EASY FIX...

Open the back of the tv, locate the large fan (on the lower left on the back of the set.) unscrew the screen and remove the fan.

Once the fan is removed, you will see the side with the model number and the other side is totally open.

On the open side, pull...

The fan will come off, into your hand, it is only held by magnets...

You will notice a spindle on the fan and the other side has the magnets and the hole where the spindle came from (this is the fan motor).

Clean both the spindle and the hole (motor) with a q-tip. The hole is smaller than the q-tip, but do the best you can to remove the old lubricant.

Get a bit of WD40 and lubricate the spindle and spray a touch in the hole.

Put them together, reconnect your fan, test it on startup and thank me...lol...

HOPE THIS HELPS!!!! IT WORKS, TRUST ME...

What do you think? Spread the word, lets save some folks from spending needlessly...

SOURCE: pairing

1) Make sure headset is off. 2) Press and hold the answer button until the light flashes green and red. 3) If it only flashes green, press and hold both volume buttons until the light lashes red and green. 4) It is now ready to pair: follow the instructions in the bluetooth menu of your phone. When asked for the passcode enter 0000. 5) All done.

I have the red screen it says you have a serious problem


Hi,

This is similar to the red light problem but the reason you get a screen is because the GPU has overheated.

You just need to stop the heat build up getting to the main chips and you will be able to play your games again.

To do this you have 2 choices:

Send it in and they will fix it for you although something to bear in mind that it will take 4 weeks and cost you $150 for the fix.

Or you can use a good PS3 Repair guide and fix it yourself.

My dualshock 3 is malfunctioning badly. Many times when I'm using the L2 trigger, it activates commands issued to the L1 button or the directional pad. How do I fix this issue?


I have had the same issue, except my issue is when I press L3 (left joystick pop in), it would malfunction the entire left side of my controller (L2, L1, and all the d-pad arrows). There are, unfortunately, very few 'good' solutions to this. The problem can lie in one of 3 different things: your controller's bluetooth is dying, your ps3 controller-receiver (its also a bluetooth chip) is dying, or both (that was the case with me). I had 2 controllers doing that, and I sent my ps3 to Sony to have it repaired (its free with a warranty, the whole process took 2 to 3 weeks) cuz they said the bluetooth receiver for the controllers (not for mic) was dying/dead. When I got my ps3 back, one of my controllers worked perfectly, and the other one (red dualshock 3, model number cechzc2u) was still malfunctioning. What Sony did was replace my ps3 motherboard. I plan to buy another controller, and save the receipt this time.

If you dont have a warranty, Sony will fix your ps3 for around $110-150, and when you get it back, it will come with a 90 day limited-warranty in case it wasn't fixed properly.

A TEMPORARY fix is to buy an aftermarket usb-plug controller, which runs on batteries and the plug goes into one of your usb slots. The problem with this, tho, is all of the aftermarket controllers have their own problems/design flaws, or unconfortable/not durable.

good luck, and I hope I helped :)

If you got it 2 weeks ago, then just go return it. You dont need tech support if you just recently bought with warranty.

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.
