Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

No sound after restarting.

I switch off my PS3 from mains once I'm done using it. When I restart it, it goes mute (the video remains intact). So everytime I have to do a long press of the power on/off switch on the front panel of PS3; subsequently it asks me about using the HDMI interface etc. and the sound resumes. Is there anyway of solving this problem so that I do not have to do the RESET everytime I switch on the mains?

You can reset the audio under the SYSTEM SETTINGS - Sound.

That's the only other way I can think of.

Best of Luck!

I had a power outage while playing a game and when power was returned the playstation3 system came back on. Afterwards a screen apeared saying to restart the system before continuing, but before I did I...

It is possible that the power outage has damaged your power supply, but there is a way of checking this. Unplug from the mains leave it for a minute, the switch at the back of the ps3 turn to the off position, plug back into the mains, turn the back switch to on to off then on and see if the console will power up, if not, and you have no warrenty left you will have to open up the ps3 there are guides on how to do this on youtube just have a search and you will find quit a few good videos, unplug again from the mains, take the top cover off, looking from the front of the ps3 on the left you will have a rubber insert, with a sticker on it, take out the rubber insert, inside there is one screw you will need a star ended srewdriver, somtimes a small alan key may do it, once undone and out put a bit of pressure on the top and slide it towards the left in should just slide and pull off, you then need a philipes or pozy drive screw driver to undo the 6-8 screws on the top of the inner housing, once they are all undone, from the back pull up and towards the front of the ps3 and it should come away, becareful not to snap the plastic clips.

There you will see the hardrive on the left and the blue-ray drive on the right, you will be taking out the harddrive there will be four screws holding in place, undo these and unplug the wires from the hdd and pull upwards it might be a bit hard because it plugs in the board with 2 prongs make sure you are careful not to go to rough it will come off, once the harddrive is out set the switch at the back to the off position and plug back into the mains, turn on by the switch at the back, what you are doing here is a hard resset once done that and the ps3 is unplugged again from the mains you can put it back together again, you same way you took it apart, make sure the screws for the inner caseing go into the right holes there will be a slightly shorter screw, make sure this one goes back into the right hand back corner, the others are all the same length so no need to worry about them, once back together plug the mains back in and power on from the back and see if it will boot, if you still have the same problem then it is likely that you will need a new power supply. hope this helps and post back what happens thanks.

My ps3 turns on and off ok, plays movies off the hard drive and will play ps3 games but has suddenly stopped playing movies ( dvd & blu ray ) it recognises the disc and goes to play it but the screen...

That is actually a poor conclusion. There are three different lasers, one for blu-ray, one DVD and one for CD games all in one holder inside. It certainly CAN be the laser. The description id the DVD/Blu-ray part is having focus problems. Contact Sony for a service center that can install a new drive (It needs to be calibrated on install)

Nokia CK-7W car kit won't stay switched off when ignition is off!

Main control box could be anywhere behind the dash, try under the glovebox or under the radio. If you have a mute harness to make the sound come through the speakers, this could also be the problem as is sound like you have 12v constantly on the blue wire.

No main menu, just wavy lines with sony entertainment

This is a hard reset of the system, used when there is a catastrophic error etc. I have trawled these kind of sights and the main concensus is to ensure you have a back up of all important data. I experienced the same issue but the method above was advised by my games shop.
