My sp will not charge, I am not sure if it is the battery or something else


Game Boy Advance SP - Charging Light Won't Display If the orange-colored charge light on your Game Boy Advance SP is no longer coming on when the A/C Adapter is connected to your system, please use the following troubleshooting steps.
    Troubleshooting Steps:
    1. Make Sure the Game Boy Advance SP Isn't Already Fully Charged
      If the battery is already fully charged, the light will not display when the system is plugged into the AC Adapter. Play a game without using the AC Adapter for at least 10-15 minutes, then plug the AC Adapter in, to see if the light comes on. If it does come on, the battery was fully charged. If the light still does not come on, see Step 2.


    2. Make Sure the Outlet You Are Using Works
      Plugging another electrical device into the outlet is a good way to check if the outlet works, or that the outlet you are using is not controlled by a nearby light switch. You may also want to try a different outlet.


    3. Try a Different Licensed AC Adapter
      If the charging light doesn't display, try a different AC Adapter, if possible, to determine if perhaps the problem is with the adapter.

      • If a different AC Adapter works, you will need to get a replacement AC Adapter from our Online Store, or by calling our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700.
      • If a different AC Adapter doesn't work, or if a replacement AC Adapter is not available and the lights will not display, we recommend having your Game Boy Advance SP repaired. Check out our convenient repair options.


    Note: Please be sure to include both the Game Boy Advance SP and the AC Adapter with any repair

My Ps3 Wont Turn On It indicates on stand by mode(solid red light).i pressed the power button; it wont turn on and it doesnt work or even beeps. i also tried using the ps button on the contoller.same...


Hi Shiman,

Are you seeing any flashingred/yellow lights?

If so this is the red lighterror and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with allof the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they loseconnection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the redflashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and theywill fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and itwill also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heatbuild up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

I updated my PS3 because it told me it would not run without and update and now it doesn't recognize the controller... CECHP01 used the latest update 3.66 (it asked for 2.76 or later.)


PS3's will sometimes loose their connection to the controllers. I have always fixed this problem with these steps:

1. Make sure the system is off (red light)
2. plug the control in with the usb cable
3. press the PS button in the middle of the controller (this will let the console relearn the controller)
4. once the lights on the front of the controller are not blinking red anymore, and have a single green light indicating which player the controller has taken, hold the PS button and turn off the system
5. once the system is off, unplug the usb cable
6. the controller should work without the cable now. (check by pressing the PS button to turn the system back on

Controllers will lose their connection to the PS3 when they die completely, during updates, power outages, etc. I don't know what exactly causes it, but I have had to do this process several times since I got my PS3.

Thanks,
John Vickers

Went on vacation and left the PS3 powercord unplugged. Now it doesn't work, could it be the cable?


Hey there, a couple of things to verify here to get your ps3 back up and running. Do not worry about leaving your ps3 the whole week with the powercord unplugged, this is OK and should't have affected anything negatively.
1) Make sure that the powercord is well plugged on both ends: ps3 AND in the wall.
2) Make sure that the SWITCH is turned on (in the back of the ps3, there is also a POWER switch I/O). Turn it on by pushing on the I.
3) If it's still unpowered, try plugging the ps3 itself somewhere else in the house (to make sure it's not the power outlet)

Playstation not receiving power


This could be a problem with your AC power cord, try these fixes. If they do not work you ca contact sony at:

www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or
www.uk.playstation.com/help-support/ps3


  • The console might not be turned on. Turn on the console using the main power switch on the back of the console.
  • Make sure the AC power cord is securely connected.
  • Visually inspect the AC power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.
  • Confirm the wall power outlet is active (receiving power). Try a different power outlet.
  • If possible, test the power cord by connecting it to a different PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If possible, try another AC power cord on your PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PLAYSTATION 3 power supply and the PLAYSTATION 3 may need service.
  • Make sure the vents are not obstructed in anyway.
  • Make sure there is adequate ventilation for the PLAYSTATION 3. There should be at least four (4) inches of clearance between the air vents on the system and any walls, televisions, entertainment centers, etc. Otherwise the unit may not function properly due to what are actually environmental issues.
