Something is wrong with the power on my PS3. I turn it on and it turns right back off. I tried changing the power cord that wasn't it.

What it sounds like to me is that you ether have something wrong with the Power Supply or the mainboard its self.

If you are not sure which power supply to get let me know the model of your PS3 so I can tell you the right power supply to get.

My laptop is always charging and today it just turned off out of nowhere while I was using it and now it won't turn back on when I keep pressing the power button. I've had it for a year and a half....


Try taking the battery out and inspecting it for any damage, then put it back in. And if you know anyone with the same laptop, try using their battery to see if it is at least just the battery that needs to be replaced. Was there any type of power surge that happened?

PS3 WHEN CONSOLE SWITCHED ON IT BEEPS THEN TURNS OFF AND FLASHES RED


My guess is its going to die soon. I would back up most of your stuff on a hard drive if possible. If it gets that far. I had this happen to my 40GB PS3 about a year ago. It turned on for 5 minutes then off. Soon after that it didn't turn on. And it was making really loud fan noises.
What are the specs of your PS3 and was it making loud fan noises before? Consider buying a new PS3 slim?
A quick guess that i just thought is try doing the fan test before turning it on. Turn Off PS3 completely (switch in back) Hold eject button and Turn on switch.

NOTE: This is dangerous and can harm the PS3.


Good Luck

Play station is hooked up on turned on (blue light) tv is on and on the right input but nothing shows up on the screen. Please help


Please try these easy steps to sort your problem out :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.
