We've checked all the cords and all are plugged in ok. Our Tv is on the right settings and everything. Also the controllers wont connect to the PS3 anymore either, plugged or wireless. If you can help, please do. =]

My PS3 connection isn't working very well. Please help me!


If you found speeds that low,do a speed test on something else in the same area of the house(laptop) with the same site simultaneously.If you don't get a similar result.you know it's the PS3.If you do get a similar esult,retest the laptop closer to the router.If the laptop is now OK,then you've got some interference somewhere.If this is where your diagosis took you,consider running an Ethernet line from the router to the PS3.If the PS3's Wi-Fi is the trouble,you can get an Ethernet adapter that will run through your coax wiring to the router from Verizon(called a NIM-Network Interface Module).This would be a great option if you have a coax outlet where the PS3 is.Try running the PS3 with an Ethernet cord first to make sure it's just a Wi-Fi issue in the PS3 and not something that is affecting both.

Did you try unplugging it for about an hour to see if it will reset itself? If that still does not work, then it can be serious problem in the main board (the backlights inverter boards are OK since you can see the NO SIGNAL message on the screen.
Please post back what you find to get further help. Repair shop cost can be $150 and up plus parts.

Sony STR-DE925 auto-decode has worked fine for years. All DVD/PS3/Cable is attached to TV via HDMI and inbound audio from HDTV is optical fiber (TOSLINK). Up until today, this has worked perfectly, i.e.,...


OK, so with more troubleshooting, I was able to eliminate the problem with my DE925. It was actually the Vizio HDTV that was causing the problem, as I decided to route the optical audio from my DVD and PS3 directly to the same TOSLINK port on the DE925 and auto-decode worked. It was not the fiber-op cables either. This HDTV was a less-expensive 720p 32" model anyway, so I am not too concerned with the optical out working on it as I can run up to four TOSLINK connections in to the receiver.

take apart the ps3 and clean the laser lens with a que tip if this doesnt fix it you may need a new blu-ray drive that you can ussually find on ebay for $50 ish, just make sure when swapping it your carefull with the logic board attached to your current blu-ray drive as you have to use this with the new drive because ps3 locks each logic board to each ps3.

It may have the changed somehow, try turning off your ps3, wait 10 secs, turn the ps3 back on and do not release the power button until you hear the beeps, it should reset your display.

We have an Intec G7789 Infinite Play wireless controller and we can't get it to work with our PS3. We have tried everything that the instructions say but it won't connect.


I dun really know how I did it, I had the same problem as u guys. And I try all sorta method.
  1. the last method that I tried was to leave my USB receiver thing in and then restart my ps3. With my controller turned off.
  2. After the PS3 restarts, I turned on my controller.
  3. Then I pressed the home and link button together. And those 4 lights on ur controller will flash really fast.
  4. Then I replugged my USB receiver, and the controller light will flasher a lot slower.
  5. Then just press "home" and the controller should sync with your PS3.
  6. And after that NEVER remove ur USB. LOL. After that, everytime u turn on ur PS3 just press the home button and the controller should sync with ur PS3.
  7. And remember to always to turn on ur PS3 before u turn on your controller.
Well that's my solution, if it doesn't work for u then sorry. Get a refund. I was planning to get a refund but then everything luckily worked out. Good luck and keep trying.

Powerhead no longer working


If you can hear the power nozzle motor running, but the belt doesn't spin, it is most likely the belt. You will have to get the belt from an Aerus dealer or a Vac shop. If you want to put the belt on yourself, you can. There or five or six screws on the bottom of the power nozzle that need to be removed and the cover should come off. Once the cover is off, you will see the belt and how to change it. Good Luck!!
