Ok, I just had this problem. On the back of the controller, there's a tiny hole on the right of the top screw. Get a pen, or sharpened pencil, and press it. it should work. It MUST be a pen or pencil. I tried a fork first, it didn't help. lol.
Let me know how this ends up.

80GB PS3 displays Snow/White screen during playback


Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.

My PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???


Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films

PS3 doesn't recognize Games or Blue-Ray Movies


Laser needs to be replaced. 95% of the time.

You can try: updating firmware
restoring system, and cleaning the laser lens with a q-tip

It almost never works, but you can try.

PS3 freezes but sound still works


when it happens, give it some time, like 5-10 min. the ps3 is most likely accessing the hard drive, and if it is, shutting down in the middle of it could currupt your hdd. if it doesnt work, even after 10 min, call sony tech support, but if it works fine afterwords, i dont see why it would be neccessary. unless it gets worse, i think you should just turn it on, turn it off after a few min, then back on, and then play.

Every time i turn on my PS3 it says "system error 8013013d"


something in your ps3 is not making a good connection check your controller and see if still working without the usb cable link your controller with the usb cablee then disconnect it and see if still one light on then check your wireless control board and see if still detecting networks but I can guaranty that this is an error for something that is not working eather the blu tooh or the wireless card both are in the same board

XBOX OR PLAYSTATION 3


a very interesting dilema!! the ps3 does have controllers with rumble now..
problem with the xbox is frequent hardware failures needing replacements,i had three!!the live experience is unbeatable!
the ps3 has better graphics though people would contest that..games are much less compared to xbox..offlate bluray laser errors are occuring..i had too..paid 7000 rupees for that..
with a psp u could control the ps3 which is a cool thing but not really useful..ps3 offers a media card support.
both are good as media extenders and u could stream content..both now support divx..both have HDMI connectivity though not in all xbox models
if u buy a ps3 make sure u get warranty for it in the place u live..i got mine from US and had no such luck with sony..
so make the right choice!! i could clarify any doubts u may have..
PS: i have all four! and i love the ps3 a shade more than the xbox360

PS2 games not working on 80G Platstation 3


Though the ps3 80g is backwards compatible,it does not play back all ps2 games. go to sony's website,i believe they have a list of games that are,and are not compatible.also make sure your ps3 has all the latest software updates.if you have it hooked to the internet im sure it does
