Ps3 will not turn on

I was traveling with my ps3 on vacation and it was working fine while I was on it. When I got back, I tried to turn it on it goes green for a few seconds then yellow then beeps 3 times and flashes red. I've used a vacuum to see if caught any fibers from the blanket I wrapped it up in so it wouldn't get damaged. I tried again but no luck. I even used an aerosol can to see if it could get rid some fibers the vacuum couldn't. I'm stuck please help!! I have data I can't afford to lose on it. seme problem wont turn on and it will blink a bunch of times then turn off

Went on vacation and left the PS3 powercord unplugged. Now it doesn't work, could it be the cable?


Hey there, a couple of things to verify here to get your ps3 back up and running. Do not worry about leaving your ps3 the whole week with the powercord unplugged, this is OK and should't have affected anything negatively.
1) Make sure that the powercord is well plugged on both ends: ps3 AND in the wall.
2) Make sure that the SWITCH is turned on (in the back of the ps3, there is also a POWER switch I/O). Turn it on by pushing on the I.
3) If it's still unpowered, try plugging the ps3 itself somewhere else in the house (to make sure it's not the power outlet)

ok don't install the hard drive in any other unit or you will lose all of your data the problem you have is similar to the xbox 360 red ring of dead yes this is right yous ps3 is dead but some units can be fix with special tools to remove the VGA and fix any broken connections under the VGA YOU KNOW THEY ARE TINYCONNECTIONS this is why you need an special tools for it
last week I fix 8 units out of 10 2 where not fixiable and is not spenced I only charge 65.00 dls if I can fix it if not htere is no charge all what you have to do is ship the unit or only the mother board if you can opened and pay for an return label so I can return the unit back to you

PS3 does not work in 1080p


My ps3 didn't like a HDMI connection very much. I tried the Composite input cables and they worked great with no screen flicker.

PS3 will not display on TV


WHEN YOU START YOUR PS 3, KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE START BUTTON UNTIL YOU EAR A SECOND BEEP ( BETWEEN 5 & 10 SECONDS); THIS WILL RESET AND SELECT THE RIGHT CONNECTION . I HAD TO FIND THIS PROBLEM WHEN WE WERE SWITCHING FROM THE LIVING ROOM TO MY KID'S ROOM.

LET ME KNOW, HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Ps3 power


Try and find a better/different adapter, maybe one the is specific for the PS3 or gaming in general. Don't use one of those universal ones, could fry your PS3.

Not sure what kind of outlet/plugs you guys have out there (I'm in Canada, eh) but I've provided a couple of links that should help you out. Personally, NYKO is a great choice, quality stuff and they have lots of accessories for the PS3.

http://discoazul.co.uk/powercord-nyko-ps3-european-plug-adapter/product_info.php/products_id/3206

Due to the volt difference; Europe (220v) vs. Canada & US (110v)
you MIGHT also need a power converter. Check the console, it will probably be able to handle 110v-220v but double check to be sure. I have heard all kinds of answers and opinions about it but best to check your PS3 yourself. If it odesn't support both voltages then you will also need to get a power converter.
