My PS3 wont turn on properly

Ive had my ps3 for 6months, working perfectly but now it wont power up properly. The light goes on and when i power up my ps3, however I am getting no video or audio and my controllers can not be recognied, even when plugged in. All I can do is switch it on and off, and insert or eject discs.

I would be grateful for any advice

Your PS3 is still under warranty. Call Sony and tell them about it.

Why wont my ps3 turn on


The problem might have to do with a power thing maybe the power switch i mean maybe the power at your home went down and that causes the PS3 to basically be unusable, what i would recomend is to go and make a diagnostic to your playstation, im not sure where but im sure that if you google it you might find cheap places to see whats wrong with your ps3Good luck!! :D

My playstation turns on and off with no problems but it doesnt come up on any tv in my house anymore. It was working perfectly two days ago. It wont even turn on by the controller anymore.

Im trying to get my ps3 to connect with another tv


turn off ps3 till the red light is on the machine then you need to hold down power button to turn on until you hear a beep.

make sure a hdmi cable is not connected at back of ps3.

My ps3 wont turn on


Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced

My ps3 wont power up


try powering the system up by HOLDING the on;off button , it will reset all your audio and video settings . then plug the system using the AV cables (default) .

else, you should take it to an assastance centre for hardware issues checking . can be a problem with your RAM or GPU units that makes the system unable to startup it's firmware .
