Can't get ps3 unit to stay on

I was about to lay a game with my son when I accidentally answered "yes" to some question regarding "progressive?" mode? at that point the machine shut down. No we can't get it to turn back on for more than 3 secs before the unti shuts itself back off. The game disc also will not eject because the unit will not stay on long enough. please help

My son keeps getting annerror on his PS3-801 301 3D.What does this mean? Kind regards Stephen


It may be a problem with the auto video mode selection that the system has. First while the system is on you can try turning the system off from the switch on the back of it. If that doesn't work try getting into the settings and restore everything to defaults for the system. Sometimes the system gets stuck on a specific setting while its trying to automatically adjust to different resolutions and what not.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

I get error code 8002f1c0 on my ps3 at 69 percent of installing an update


Quite a few PS3 Owners have got this error while updating their PS3 Firmware

I hope you did not accidentally switch off your PS3 while the upgrade was running.

When you encounter this error while doing the firmware upgrade, you can check removing the Power Cord from the console, it needs to be unplugged for a few minutes (these systems store data when plugged in, and sometimes the data can be faulty). Unplugging it purges the faulty data from the system.

Re-Plug the console and connect it online again and check if the upload progresses or not.

The Second method of installing the upgrade is downloading the update from playstation website, and put it in a pendrive follwing the instructions. Then turn on your PS3 with the pen drive connected to one of the usb doors and let the installation process begin.

If the above two methods are not of any help, please DO NOT power reset your machine frequently as you may damage the PS3 totally.

Call up Sony Customer Support as last resort and send it for repairs if needed.

Good Luck, Wishing you happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

Ps 3 problems with game play madden 08 franchise mode


This sounds like you might have a dirty lens. clean your ps3's lens with any CD/DVD cleaner kit and then try to play the game again.

My PS3 won't play PS3 Games. It plays ps2 and DVDs. Won't play PS3 or Blue Ray Discs. Is the blue ray drive knackered?


I called Sony and they helped me resolved this same problem...


1. Turn off the ps3.
2. press down on the on/off button on the front of ps3 while turning on the button from the back. DO not let it go until you hear 2 beeps and will show a red light.
3. press the on/off button again and do not let it go until you hear 1 beep, paused, and two beeps. Let it go.
4. There should be a prompt asking you what to do. If you have hdmi, answer all the question yes etc.
5 there should be a menu list asking what you need done.. setting wise..

6. Choose the # 3rd list (not sure how many they were).
7. IF it tells you that your data is corrupted etc.. just click ok
8. wait till progress ends ( if it tells your your data is corrupted again, just click ok again).
9. It's going to do some loading again...
10.. end of restoring and you should see your ps3 menu..

PS3 corrupted hard disk


Yes. All you need is a Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive. It doesn't matter how many GB it has. If you have the 20GB or 60GB model of PS3 for goodness sake keep it!! That model is backwards compatible and will play PS1 and PS2 games. The 40GB unit does not have this luxury. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!
