Charge time


Around 2 hours for initial charge. I've had 30 minute charges recently on a used system. I would consider a charging station that is in a handy location so then you can keep it constantly charging and still easily accessable when you are ready to begin your blood sessions.

Ps3 restoring problem


Does it give you an option to start without restore? Another option is to unplug it completely for 30 seconds. Mine sometimes does this too, but shutting it off almost always works

When I'm told the system was not turned off correctly press ok then the screen stays blank


You corrupted your settings. Turn on the Ps3 let it power cycle, once you get to the blank screen hold down the power button until it beeps 3 times (about 25 secs) Your ps3 will shut off( note: if you have HDMI only, plug in your RCA connections as this will reset your ps3 display to analog) once you are back at xmb, plug in your HDMI and go to display settings and select HDMI. Always let your PS3 do its thing before shutting it down, its equivalent to unplugging your computer instead of logging off correctly.

Ps3 will not turn on,green light comes on for a sec,then red and then shuts off


hi there Janet

This is Yellow light of death and in the gaming world its known as the YLOD.

You can send the console to Sony to fix for around $150 4-6 weeks of waiting time.

The More popular choice at the moment is to fix it your self at home using a PS3 repair guide made by a professional ps3 repair man for the complete beginner costing around $30 - $40.

You can see why its more popular and why gamers are turning to repair guides everyday.

Go to GAMER FIX and you will find a full description of your problem, also Sony's details if you wish to contact them and the most recommended ps3 repair guide on the web.

You will get back to gaming with either option

Best regards

My son recently took his playstation to a friends to play. Friends TV did not have HDMI connection so used the scart lead. In order to get it to work we had to hold the power switch down to "OFF"...


well this a common problem and the solution to the problem is as follows:

Turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on any TV or monitor. Once you can then get something on the screen, you can configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to.

hope its helps, thanks

1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Make sure you are using the correct cable. If you are using a HDTV make sure you are using a official HDMI cable. If you are using RGB/SCART, make sure you TV is compatible.
