Try turning it off and hold the power button when you turn it on till you hear two consecutive beeps. This should bring up a menu to restore your PS3. Then restore it, you'll lose everything on the HDD so back it up if you can.

    If your in warranty, send it in, if your not then find someone who bought a PS3 recently and use their receipt.

Cant connect to netflix error code 80130182

Without knowing more, sounds like you need to check the PS3's WiFi settings to make sure the unit is really connected through your home internet service's router to the internet. Make sure the WiFi protocol on the PS3 and the WiFi password validate correctly in the Settings, and that they match that you have set on the WiFi setup of the ISP's router. With a mismatch here to the WiFi settings, nothing on the PS3 will connect to the internet. If it all checks out but the unit doesn't connect to WiFi, if other devices in your house do and you have matched the settings, could be an indication of a problem with the PS3 hardware, scope of which to help you resolve is beyond this forum.

try only having the hdmi cable hooked up to ps3 and tv, turn off ps3 and hold power button for 5 or 10 seconds and you should hear 3 beeps, this should reset the ps3 and detect the settings, if this doesnt work you mmay have to manually change audio and video settings in the ps3 settings menu to hdmi output and auto detect which settings work.

To clarify, your TV is working correctly, since you get sound and video from all devices - Only your PS3 has no sound or video?

If your PS3 was previously used with regular AV cables (Red/White/Yellow) then you most likely need to do a PS3 video reset t output video over HDMI.

With the PS3 OFF, press and continue holding the power button until it turns on, beeps twice, and then turns back off. Do not release the power button during this process.

You may have to try the video reset a few times if it doesn't work right away.

After video reset, you should get sound and video over HDMI.

My ps3 powers up, but I get no picture or sound.

Put your PS3 in standby mode (hold the power button until the light turns red) then release, and hold the power button again for about 10 seconds, or until the light beeps a second time. When the PS3 restarts, it should display on whatever it finds plugged in first.

No sound or picture

hi i think it's the heat transfer compound (fan) in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety percaution.

Ps3 not working

Is there sound? If so, then maybe your video settings got mixed up. Try the video reset.

When the PS3 is in standby mode (red LED lit), hold the Power "button" until it beeps for booting, keep holding until it beeps again (not to turn it off).

If done correctly you should see something again (480p resolution) allowing you to change settings.

I hope this will help you out.

When you start your PS3, press the power button and hold it for 5 seconds. It will beep and reset the machine to the default settings. What is happening is it is thinking you are still using the other cable. Reset to default and it will recognize the new cable. Hope that helps.
