Same thing happened to my first PS3 about a week after i got it, except i did not try to install anything. I called SONY tech support to troubleshoot but did not work, they decided to send me a warranty replacement, I havent had an issue with my new PS3. I recommend you do the same

Do you have the red light of death I wonder??? What happens when you switch on your ps3. Does the green light come on, then beep at you and then does it go back to the red light? If so your ps3 is knackered!

It turned off in the middle of COD Black Ops & now nothing happens. There is no lights or anthing when I try to turn it on


NO lights? must be a power issue. But you were playing black ops when this happened? interesting. There have been reports of Black Ops causing problems on PS3. Many believe that the game makes the processors work too hard, causing premature failure.

If your PS3 has been restored and the green power light is staying on after you turn it on it could possi bly be the video resolution. If you have been using the PS3 on HDMI you may need to reset it back to standard definition. Do this by holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If that doesnt help try going into the restore menu and "Restore PS£ system" again. If that fails too, download the latest PS3 update and put it onto a USB stick. Using the PS3's recovery menu again, select System update. It will then continue to update from the USB stick. I really hope this helps you out.

unfortunately, you can leave the unit unplugged for about an hour and try again. otherwise, you'll have to either exchange the unit, or call sony and go through their warranty process. this is the only problem that PS3s have that compares to the "red-ring" issue of the 360s.....fortunately for PS3 owners, this is the only thing they would have to worry about. to the best of my recollection, it has something to do with the internal HDD of the PS3, as sometimes, the HDD controller just "goes out". there really isnt anything you can do except for calling sony. sorry :(

PS3 can turn on, but T.V screen is black


turn power switch on in the back. red light on in the front, hold the power button until system turns back off. this resets all hardware settings. if this doesn't work and the system is ok (green light) then you have a connection problem to the tv
