    Couple of things to try:

    Hook the PS3 to the internet and try to perform a System update to firmware 2.7

    Try the games after update.

    It's already 2.7, then perform a FULL RESTORE

    Try the games again.

    If it STILL doesn't work, get your money back from your friend QUICK before he spends it.

    yeah you just have to change the network settings so that your ps3 connects to your wireless network.

    Look for System Update....it's all the way to the left on the crossbar.

    Top left, I believe.

    It's HIGHLY likely that the blu-ray laser is bad. If you google rescuetechla you can find my blog which gives you the whole deal and a few more things to try.

    Best of luck!

Playstation3 has been converted to play 3d but now wont project an image does it require a hdmi cable


OK sometimes people put the HDMI cable to the PS3 and it changes the settings. Try to reset the ps3. Turn the ps3 off with just the red light showing. The hold the power button. when it beeps and the light changes keep holding it. then you with hear 2 to 3 beep right after another. When you do let the button go. The does a manual reset and whatever cables you have connected at the time should work. If this doesnt then your video card on the board might be out. I hope this helps you out.

The green light on my ps3 works but my blue 1 doesnt show up


I had kinda the same problem, but my ps3 was able to get to the home screen. I never tried the problem out on a ps2 game, but when I put anything BlueRay into the system, I would also get that blank, blue AV screen. Because I was able to access my home screen, I looked around and found that I had corrupted data on my system. Now, I'm not sure how to get you back to your home screen, but if you're ever able to, the only solution that I found was to wipe the hard drive of the corrupted data, by going to the Game option on the home screen, then scrolling down to either Game Data Utility or Saved Data Utility. That's where you'll find it. Unfortunately, this will mean you'll have to wipe your entire hard drive of all your saved data.

I know it sucks, but I hope this helps...
otherwise have people look at it.

Games will not load ps3


here is one of the best answers that I ran across in the past about said issue.

this is what i would do :
First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or ur ps3, following that i would say u put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works, if it doesn't, then u are in serious trouble ( not really!). Get a USB Memory Stick( u know one of those little things u plug in a computer and can save all of ur stuff in) save ur important stuff. and then after that reset ur system settings, u can do that by:
Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings
after that try it and if it doesnt work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system, u can do that by:
Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.
it should be noted that all of ur stuff will be deleted, so i hope u saved all of ur game saves on that usb flash stcik thing.
if it doesnt work then do the following:
call sony:
SCEA Consumer Services
1-800-345-SONY (7669)
Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM PST
Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST
and tell them about ur problem, they will tell u to restore system settings or restore ps3 system, and thats what i told u, if it doesnt work, they will ask for ur adresss ( i hope u live in North America) and will ask u ur email, phone number and all that. After that they will send u a box( takes around 4-5 business days for the box to get to ur house, but it really matters where u live) and u put ur ps3 in that box, send it back, and then they will fix it, if they cant they will either send u a refurbished ps3 which is someone elses ps3 but dont worry its as good as brand new or if not, they will send u a new ps3. which will take sbout 4-5 business days, and again depends on where u live!

Hello. Try a different hard drive. I have only seen a couple machines do this, but replacing the hard drive fixed it both times. Thanks!

Return under warranty.
the blu ray laser will have been slightly overheated and as a result will need to be replaced.
