Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 controllers and remote stopped working

Yesterday, I put a DVD in my PS3, and tried to work the PS3 with my remore control. It appeared dead, so I changed the batteries - still nothing.
So, I then tried working the PS3 with a sixaxis controller - wirelessly - that appeared dead too.
On connecting to the PS3 all four lights flashed repeatedly, I pressed the PS button and it registered as controller 1.
when removing the link, it became dead again.
The manual doesn't say anything about this problem - nor does the website FAQ, so I took it upon myself to go into standby, then boot up and try again. Still nothing.
I then switched off round the back, waited a minute, then switched back on and booted up.
Nothing at first, then for some reason everything was back to normal.
Is this a common occurrence, or is it a fault with my system?

Could have been a software fluke, if everything is now working, I wouldn't be concerned about it

How do I change the zone on my Soniq E32W13D-AU?


You should have got a red card with the AU and NZ customer support numbers on it. If you phone them, they will tell you how to unblock the player to make it region free.

On the Soniq QV191LC TV and DVD player, you follow these steps. It may work for your model but if it doesn't, try the support line.

1. Switch on
2. Switch to DVD mode (use Source button on remote)
3. Select DVD setup menu (press DVD button on remote)
4. Select Preferences page (use > key on remote)
5. Press '0' key 4 times on remote: the Region Code menu will appear
6. Use up and down on remote to select region (0 of course)
7. Press exit button.

You should now be region free.

Try these numbers:
AU 1300 765 663 / (61) 3 9543 5111
NZ (64) 9 2667512

    After installation of ps3 and blue -ray disc remote control. tried using remote to turn on and play a dvd dics to no avail nothing works the ps3 player nor the remote does't appear to recognize each other...


    Ive had the same problem with mine. I have a universal remote and a blu ray player separately installed on my tv. The only way i was able to play the ps3 without calling geek squad to reconfigure my tv was to unplug the blu ray and put the ps3 in its spot and push watch bluray. It worked great.

    Play station 3 dvd remote pairing instructions.


    OK I FIGURED IT OUT!!! First turn off the system(ps3) make sure that you take the batteries out of the remote. Then when you turn it back on go straight to system setting, setting accessories, setting blue tooth device. AND THEN IT WILL TELL YOU TO HOLD DOWN THE START AND ENTER BUTTON DOWN!. Don't forget to put the batteries back into the remote. It took like 3 seconds.

    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.
