Question about Sony Playstation 3 120gb Video Game System Slim Ps3

1 Answer

Ps3 starts then turns off

Power button is on (red), I press power button, system beeps and green light comes on, there is a short whirr for (1 sec) and then the green light goes out and everything stops. So far I have replaced the figure of 8 power cable. Waiting for delivery of a Tory security screwdriver. Any help or tips as to how to fix would be great

Ps3 starts briefly and shuts down


You might have a problem with your motherboard. I had the YLOD with my PS3. I made the mistake to let someone open it and it got damage even more, i would recommend you send it to VideoGame911.com they were extremely low with price compared than the manufacture and all my data games were saved. Hopefully it all works out!

Tip

Fix the 80010514 error on your PS3


If your Play Station 3 (PS3) gets the 80010514 error somewhere, you can try this to resolve the problem:

1. Make sure that the power indicator on the Play Station 3 system is solid red. To do this, press and hold the power button until the PS3 beeps and the light blinks. Once the light has turned solid red, turn the power switch in the back off.

2. Turn the switch back on, then press and hold the power button.

3. Keep holding the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.

4. After 10 seconds, you will hear another short beep and the system will shut down (release the button at this point).

5. Press and hold the power button again.

6. Continue holding the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.

7. Release the button when two short beeps are emitted after 7 seconds.

8. As instructed by the on-screen message, plug in the controller and press the PS button

9. Select restore Play Station 3 system.

This should not affect any of your save games, demos, etc. but just to be safe you might want to back up to an external USB hard drive.

To backup saves, go to the Play Station 3 Save Data Utility, select the save you wish to copy and hit the Triangle button. Copy should come up as one of the options. If it does not then the save game is copyright protected and can’t be copied. If you can copy it, make sure you have a USB drive attached and copy it to that.

Try to start to the system in safe mode to check if this will resolve the problem.Safe mode is available to PS3 system software version 2.60 or later. To do the safe mode follow these steps:

  2. Turn on the MAIN POWER switch, then touch and hold the power button.
  3. Keep touching the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.
  4. After 10 seconds, you will hear another short beep and the system will shut down (release the button at this point).
  5. Touch and hold the power button again.
  6. Continue touching the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.
  7. Release the button when two short beeps are emitted after 7 seconds.
  8. As instructed by the on-screen message, press the PS button to start up in safe mode

It turns on but nothing comes up on the tv and wont turn back off


This is a problem with your system software. Please follow these steps to fix it :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn back off into standby(red light on) . Release the power button after it has switched itself back off.

Step 3. Again, press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this an then continue to the next step.

Step 5. A menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". Accept whatever the PS3 says and hopefully it will restart as normal.

If option 3 does not work, do the above again and choose option 4, "Rebuild Database". If this does not work as a last resort select option 5, "Restore PS3 System". THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA ON YOUR DRIVE!!

One of these options will bring your PS3 back to life.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony
