Just pulled the Playstation 1 out of a box. It hasn't been used for about 6 years. I've hooked it up to the TV. ..Turned it on...I get a "SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT" picture on the TV...But when I put in a game disc (Panzer General) nothing happens...I don't hear the disc turning, and I have no instruction manual.
What's next?

    I tried using the toothpick method shaunvfx suggested...No effect. I looked at the laser lens...It appears clean. I have heard that wiping it with a cleaning solution is a no-no. At any rate, no light emits from the laser lens after using the toothpick starter method. Me thinks I just have a bad set.

    Any other suggestions?

When you open the lid there is a piece of plastic that pushes down a button that tells the unit to start spinning the disc.

With the unit off, open the lid. Power on the unit leaving the lid open, make sure game is in place. After the playstation loads take a toothpick and press down the button that would normally be depressed by the lid closing in the back right side.

Keep holding down the button for a few seconds. If the disc does not start to spin then give disc an each kick start counter clockwise. You might have some dust preventing it from spinning, make sure the disc lens (on the black thing that is under the disc) is clean.

If it starts spinning, close the lid and there you go.

    After the toothpick is pressing down the lever in the back do you hear any noises? Have you tried to push start the disc a little bit to see if it goes?



    I would say you might have a bad motor...

My Playstation 3 (60 GB) will not connect to wifi. It has connected before but until recently (2/3 weeks and i am now sick of waiting) it hasn't worked. I have tried to turn off the modem and router...


mmk first thing is that you will need to get your playstation into safe mode
step 1 make sure the system is off (solid red light)
step 2 hold down the power button until the light changes from green back to solid red
step 3 hold down the power button you will here a series of beeps coming from your system listen for the quick double beep (less than one second between beeps) then take you finger off
step 4 you should see a message about plugging your controller in follow thos and 6 options should come up
step 5 choose option 3
if this does not resolve repeat above steps 1-4 and choose option 5 (this will erase everything)
step 6 if the above does not resolve it is a hardware issue and you will need to contact sony

Im been trying to download version 1.10 update software for Call Of Duty:Black Ops, and it simply wont let me download it, it goes until 6% downloaded and it fails. My error code is 80710723 and i've...


80710723 Possible Port Error - Try opening ports , TCP port: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP port: 3478, 3479, 3658. or add Ps3 to DMZ

You really might want to try creating the connections again on your PS3 system on the same modem/router you are using.

Just re-configure you connection settings and see if that helps.

My alarm keeps going off. Last year I had the hood latch repaired. And it worked for 1 yr, 1 mth. I would rather disarm the alarm than pay another $200 for another hood latch. Where is the fuse that...


I've had same problem. Dealer refused to replace hood latch under their extended warranty despite the Toyota Bulletin on the problem. I just DISCONNECTED the hood latch sensor. To get to the hood latch get under the plastic covering over the hood latch by removing the plastic retaining buttons attaching the cover to the frame. Do this by using a sharp edge to pull up the center piece of the retaining buttons, which then lets the outer button pop out. After you get under the plastic cover find the wire coming out of the latch assembly (not the latch release cable you used to open the hood). The sensor wire couples with other wires for the alarm right there. Just disconnect it. The dealer said I may not be able to lock by car as a result of disconnecting the hood latch sensor. But that hasn't happened, and the alarm hasn't gone off since.

A couple of times I've found that the dishwasher tablet I'm using (Finish) hasn't dissolved correctly. I found it in the cutlery box the last time. I've been putting it on the 65 degree...


I am guessing you are using the Centigrade temperature scale ... which would be 149 degrees F. 149 is way hot in terms of regular house hold use. Probably just right for a dish washer.

I would expect most tablet detergent would disolve properly at this temperature and with proper water pressure in the machine. You should have plenty of both in this machine. May I suggest you give liquid dish washer detergent a try to see the results?

Playstation 3 hook up


If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If that does not help try contacting sony at

Best of Luck,
