There is a reset button on the bottom of the controller. Push it in with a toothpick or paperclip for ten seconds. Should clear that problem up.

My ps3 shuts down after two minutes. It won't turn on when I press the ps button on my controller. I don't get a blue light at all, and when I do turn it on I get a message that says it was turned off...


when that message appears press the PS button on your controller and your controller will turn on, follow the steps on the screen after shutting it down it should be back to normal, all you have to do is hold the O/I button for 2 seconds, it will turn off after that press the PS buton on your controller and it will turn back on

TV shut off randomly. Unplugged for a while, worked for 2 minutes then shut off again.


Hi.
Random shut down can be caused by faulty power adapter, faulty inverter and faulty controller board, add buttons, shorts, bad fan and IR sensor.

The TV must be tested to find out the problem.

I suggest contacting Sanyo by calling the number listed on the owners manual.

Parts and part price available here.

Dualshock 3 sixaxis why does it always need to be plugged in


Once the controller is plugged in and connected to the console, hold down the PS button to select "turn off the system." Once the system has completed shutting down, unplug the controller and press the PS button. The console should turn on. If so, the controller will connect wirelessly. Unfortunately you'll have to do this with each controller but it works every time.
