Hello. If you see the waves come up on the TV then most likely it's the hard drive. You can reformat it with an external USB device on your PC, or just replace it. Thanks!

PS 3 handset 1 now appears to be identified as PS handset 3- therefore unable to play /load games requiring player 1.


just hold the PS button on the controller and select controller settings and change it to 1, if your talking about another kind of handset just take the controller that is 1 and under controller settings change it to 3 and it should swap 3 for 1 putting the handset to 1.

hold the PS button for 2 seconds if you just tap it in a game it brings up the XMB you have to hold it to get to the settings.

Are the ps3 games supposed to load when you put them in? I put a game in and nothing happens/


It may be set to NOT AUTO LOAD games or discs. Check your game settings in the "Settings" menu on the XMB at start up.

My ps3 turns on but doesnt play any disc


It might not be set to auto-run. Instead, you'll need to use the XMB to select the disc which will appear under "Games" if it's a game or "Video" if it's a DVD or BluRay

Playstation 3 problem


Hello.
If it doesn't even load to the XMB or only gets to the XMB and freezes, then it's the hard drive. Remove the hard drive and try a different one. It will ask you to format it, say yes, then it will turn off and back on.

Also, just to keep up your machine, get some compressed air and use the straw it comes with to blow out your PS3 to remove most of any dust build up.
