    can anyone tell me what is up? This is a lady's computer that I help out and need to know what to tell her about her computer.

    It ended up being a signal to let her know that her battery was no good. She can still use her laptop if she keeps it plugged into the power.

Video will not work on ps3


It may be stuck in the opposite mode of what you are using on the TV like HDMI output or S-Video. To check this press and hold down the power button, you will hear the initial beap once and shortly followed by a double beap. After the double beap immediately remove you finger. You may have to do this once or twice to get the right beap because this is a service menu they do not want you to get into. Once this is done you will have prompts on the tv to change settings to what every output you want. Make sure you change it to the right one and you should be all set.

Play station 3 power comes on but nothing works. You can hear that it is powered up.


It's probably not in the setting you chose for example you might be using HDMI and it might be setted for SCART, to simply change this keep hold of the power key until you hear a beap (the first one when you just press the power key) keep hold of it until you hear another beap then let go. The setting should be changed. No problem :)

How to set start up volume control


I read another post that says that if turn on the unit and set the volume where you want it at startup, and then press in the volume knob until you hear it beep, that locks in the current volume as the startup volume. I just read this, so I haven't tried it myself yet. Good luck!
