Yes you can. However! ! I DO NOT recommend it. It is not good on the hard drive to shut the system down that way. I would order a new ribbon cable for the power button. They are not hard to replace and only a few screws holding the cover down to gain access to what you need.

Playstation 3 power issue


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.

No menu appears when you switch it on only the wave and colour appears also will not turn off have to turn off from main switc


try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

PS3 not turning on


The only way you would be able to get your disc is to open up your PS3. I advise you not to if your warranty is intact. If not, unscrew 1 bolt from left side with torx bit. Slide panel to the left. Unscrew 7 more bolts on top along sides and corners. Open from back like a book. Unplug the ribbon of the BD drive by flipping the tab connecting to the motherboard. Unplug the smaller plug from the bottom left of the BD drive. You should be able to figure out how to open the BD drive from there.

Or, another way is, you can just remove your BD drive, and connect it to your friend's PS3 and hit EJECT.

Ps3


not really sure what happened, but if you put the component cables back in the tv, making sure the ps3 is in stand by, then as switching it on hold the power button for about 5 seconds, it runs the optimal screen settings page, and should auto select the best option for the cables fitted, if this does not work , then do all of that again but with original cables fitted and it should be back to original settings(how it came out the box) hope this helps
