Assuming you're in the US, Sony's website has a lot of the manuals available for download. These aren't "services manuals" for actually taking the console a part, but I didn't think t hat's what you were looking for anyway since you asked for instructions.

SOURCE: PS3 not taking disc

The ribbon is in the wrong way or broken, My PS3 is broken and won't accept games... It just blinks. The blue on the ribbon has to be facing the bottom of the PS3 not the Blu ray drive...

How do i fix my PS3 when I cant see anything, but the system itself looks to be functioning?


You are going to have to do a video reset. Witch takes the video settings of the system back to default. To do this, make sure you have everything hooked up. Power, HDMI. Then, turn the system on, push and hold the power button until the system turns off, then push and hold power button until you hear 2 "beeps" then the video settings will be refreshed. ^^

My ps3 has a problem reading all disks i put in, the spinning icon appears at the top right of the screen but nothing happens, this also happened when I tried playing a demo I downloaded


Hi there,

If your Ps3 has trouble reading all discs, then the lens could hardly read them due to it being dirty. Try to use a disc cleaner and let it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not work, you need to manually clean the lens opening the casing and removing the screws covering the lens. Get a cotton swab and damp it to an alcohol. Gently wipe the lens' surface and let it dry. Then return everything back and try playing those dics again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

Nothing shows on screen when inserting game , i hear the disc is turning but nothing shows on screen


Make sure you have the cables hooked up properly, regardless of whether your using an HDMI cable or regular A/V cables.

Best thing to do in a case like this is to do a factory reset on your PS3. Be sure that the A/V cables are being used originally and are hooked up properly.

Here is how to do the factory reset on a PS3:

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.

Try that, if you still don't get video and you know the cables and the TV are set to the right output then its an issue with the main board not having any output.

PS3 no picture problem..


Try using RGB cables and unplug the HDMI cable from the PS3, then while the PS3 is off, hold down the power button/sensor on the PS3 untill you hear a beep or a few beeps. This will force the PS3 to automatically detect the TV/cable resolution settings. Hope this works.

Powers on but nothing happens


It happened to me too. When you plug in your av cables and are ready to play, follow these steps. With your PS3 off (Red light on), Press and hold the power button on your console. (Do not use the controller to turn it on.) Keep holding the button until you hear a second beep. (it takes about 2 to 3 seconds.) You will notice your screen flickers, then your PS3 will show up on the tv. All you did was reset the PS3 display settings. You can always go back to HDMI or AV cables. Have Fun.
