Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console

1 Answer

PS3 boot up problem. I´m playing FIFA09 and wanted to try out online gaming,but the game said that I had to Sign up first for Playstation Network. So I quit the game and got to it. Then the com said that I needed first to go to "system update", before I can sign in to Playstation Network. So I do, and I choose to find the latest update online and was broght to version 2.60. I downloaded it, it took a while an then the system restarted, and now all I get up every time I turn on, is the Sony startup sound, and "Sony Entertainment" logo and thos waves in the back, and thats it. Those waves just stay there but no options come up. The com isn´t frozen, cause I can access the menu from the controller. Now every time I turnOff, a three time beep goes before it turns off. It never did that before... Is there a connection? What can I do?? Quick replies, please :)

    Thank u very much. I will try this :)

    Thank u, but I need to know, is it wise for me as someone who has never opened up a PS3 before, to do this myself, or should I take the PS3 to the PS commisioner here in Iceland and let them handle it?
    It should still be under guaranty, it´s about six months old only...

    Ok. I will probably go the safe rout.
    Thanks alot. You´ve been very helpful :)

Your hard drive was corrupted. The easiest way to fix it is to place your hard drive in another PS3 and follow the onscreen instructions. You'll need either a usb flash drive or a burned cd with the latest PS3 firmware properly filed.

Here's a link:

Most people mess up on the folder setup.

Make sure you have the folders named in CAPS!

    It's your call, if it's under warranty then by all means use your warranty. The problem is relatively minor though.

I'm losing my connection...


It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.
