My ps3 wont work

I set my ps3 up on the internet and now it wont work or could it be because it was turned off at the back of the console instead of shutting the system down on the joypad?

Hello there no i have a ps3 and i turn it off from the switch on the back every time and i have no problems with my internet, there is an option on the ps3 to reset and format the hard drive you will lose all your game saves but it will also reset any system info like your internet setting once this is done you should be able to set your internet back up and hopfully no problems, if problems still persist try calling up sony

My ps3 will not connect to the internet...my computer is connected, but it's says that it wont find my IP address? HELP


Try the following:

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and choose the appropriate settings. (What's highlighted is going to be the best option, continue to hit the right button on the analog to go through the stages.)



Be sure to choose "Wireless" when configuring the settings if you are using WI FI for connectivity.

Ps3 only works on my HD tv.


when you turn on the ps3 from the switch on the back, when the light turns red, hold down the power button on the front instead of tapping it to turn the light green. Hold it for atleast 5 secs. This restores the display settings.

I have a ps3 and it doesnt turn on. Ive checked the switch in the back and tryed different outlets but i dont get a light.


How are you trying to turn it on? It wont work with the PS button on your controller first time because to controller wont be connected via Bluetooth. There's a button (pressure sensitive not a push switch) on the front of the console by the BR disk slot. Its also possible it is switching on, does the green light come on at the front of the console come on? If so then you’ve probably not got it set to the right output channel. So it'll be outputting to your analog instead of your HDMI or vice versa. I think the Analog is standard so plug in a scart cable and see if you get something then change to HDMI in your settings.
Otherwise either your cable/tv or ps3 is broke :S

My ps3 wont finish game update


this happened to me a while back it was so frustrating. but what i did was go to system settings and click on restore game settings and dont worry it wont mess ur ps3 up. what you need to do after that is if u have a psp registered for your ps3 you have to do that again and if you have any bluetooth devices you will have to register them again and fix all your settings back. also it will not clear gamesaves or pics or song or pics so dont worry. i hope it works fo you to. Good Luck

My ps3 wontwork


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.
