Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My ps3 is acting up

The system will start to play any game then goes blank and sometimes the only way to then turn it off if to unplug it because it doesn't respond to touch or the remote. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Dirty lens on BluRay? Clean by opening Rom tray and BLASTING it with air. DO NOT TURN CAN UPSIDE DOWN or SIDEWAYS you will ruin the drive with -75degrees (crack glass lens) TKeep can of air upright and move PS3 around

Hot? Make sure you have airspace all around it

P/Supply fan not spinning? Could be packed with dust and causing fire! Give it a big blast too, but DO NOT ALLOW to SPIN FAST for long time - you will burn out bearings and ruin it. I hold it still (Power off) with long thin chinese skewer stick so it do not spin ;-)

Playing any PS3 game and screen goes blank. red light on console blinks.


Common reason is your PS3 has overheated. Turn off system after removing game disc and let system cool. Clear any dust or debris from the vents and if possible, relocate PS3 to more open area.

R - Restore: Restore default settings E - Environment: Change your environment, remove from media cabinet, try different media, try different equipment (TV, router, hotspot, etc.). P - Power Cycle: Power cycle by unplugging your networking equipment from wall for 2 minutes to reset. A - Access this Knowledge Center for useful articles to resolve issues. I - Install the latest System Software Update. R - Resolved: In most cases these steps can resolve your issue.
Adjust the video input on the TV to match the input connector that is being used to connect to the PS3™ system. Check that the cable is securely inserted. Try disconnecting the cable from the PS3™ system or TV and then reconnecting it. There may be a problem with the AV cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PS3™ system. If the video output settings on the system do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, with only the system and the TV connected, touch the system’s power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution. If the resolution of the video content is not supported by the TV in use, when the video is played the screen may go blank. If this happens, go to the screen for selecting the resolution in the system’s video output settings, and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

My ps3 turns on and off ok, plays movies off the hard drive and will play ps3 games but has suddenly stopped playing movies ( dvd & blu ray ) it recognises the disc and goes to play it but the screen...


That is actually a poor conclusion. There are three different lasers, one for blu-ray, one DVD and one for CD games all in one holder inside. It certainly CAN be the laser. The description id the DVD/Blu-ray part is having focus problems. Contact Sony for a service center that can install a new drive (It needs to be calibrated on install)

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds


I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!

Dvd or game not playing


If this is an issue you have always had (meaning you just started using the system) it may be a resolution problem. If your PS3 is set to display movies or games in a resolution your TV can't handle, you'll get issues like this. Go into your video settings in the bar and check to make sure you don't have it set for something your TV can't do. My TV, for example, won't do 720p.

hay if you fell it getting hot fast it's the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety precaution. so there for it will keep freezing of shouting down.
