Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

It does not turn on, remains in stand by mode.

I recently bought a PS3 from US for use in India. After making all the connections, when i turn on the main switch the red light on PS3 switches on indicatin it is in the stand by mode. And then on pressing the on/off button on PS3 the light should turn green, but it does not turn on green and continues to remain in stand by mode(that is light remains to red.) The power supply of US is 120V 60hz but in India the power supply is 230V 50hz. Therefore we are using a step down transformer of configuration 230/120V 50hz. Please recommend the possible cause and solution. Thanks n regards Monto

I cannot be COMPLETELY sure of this so be careful, but doesn't the PS3's board cater for both types of power supply and therefore a step down transformer is not needed? Check the labels on it just in case, but be wary I CANNOT be certain of this...

The DVD movie you are trying to play does not match the region code of your player which is your PS3. These movie discs might not be under the same region and you have to comly to the DVD region code settings to make it work. If it says region code does not match, it means that it is unsupported and not compatible with your PS3.

Your system has overheated. If it doesn't get on at all anymore, you should get it fixed in the place you bought it from. That happened to me.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.

No video output on ps3


If you have trouble on the video output settings on your PS3 try this possible solutions.

a. if recently used a HDMI cable then change the connection back to the Component cable try to check your settings first

b. while on stand by mode try to press the power button right next to the eject button for about 3 to 5 sec. until you here the double beep sound

c. if you have HDMI cable and there
is still no video but sound only try to plug out the connection from the PS3 unit and plug it again.

if this doesn't solve the problem you need to take your PS3 to sony cause the problem would be in *********** board
