    Thanks for the reply Localwonder,Have spoken to them but think I'd be looking to shell out £150 for the replacement as I brought the console when they were first released in 2007,way going to try and argue the fact that it cost me £475 ,2years ago so would have expected it to have lasted longer than it had done?

    Have shelled out for another brand new one(arrives this tuesday Do you know if my statistic on COD4 online will still be compatible with the new console or will I have to start way back at the beginning again???(18days prestige level 8 level 48)

    Appreciate your time and input chap

    Thanks Lee

    Most of that CoD4 data May be different with the new system but, the core data like the Experience level and prestige, should be ok. i think they store that on the on line servers.

    You progress should be preserved.

Wen i want to play a game on line that i have is ascking to do the update, the update starts then stops freezing what should i do


Put your PS3 in Standby Mode. The first thing your going to want to know is your model number. It can be found on the back panel of the PS3 on the serial number label, and it will begin with CECH. Example - Serial: XXXXXXXXXXXX-CECHXXX -

For models: CECHA01, BO1, E01, E01MG, G01, H01, H01MG, K01, LO1, AND P01, it will have a power switch on the back. Flip it off then back on and you will have a solid red indicator light on the front.

For models: CECH-2001A and 2001B, press the power button on the front until the indicator light turns red. If all else fails unplug the power cord and plug it back

Time to enter Safe Mode. Press and hold your finger over the power button on the front until you hear three beeps and the indicator light goes back to red. Then release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds the third and final beep will sound then the indicator light will return to red.)

Press and hold your finger over the power button again until you hear a quick double beep. The release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds you will hear the double beep.)

You will then see this screen. "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button".

Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the front of your PS3 and the top of your game controller, (between the left and right bumpers). Then Press the PS button in the center of the controller.

You will then see this screen. -REMINDER: -BY DOING THE FOLLOWING ALL OF YOUR DATA ON YOUR PS3 WILL BE LOST, YOUR ONLINE STATS ARE ON THE NETWORK SO YOU WILL GET THAT STUFF BACK, INCLUDING GAMES AND ADDONS YOU BOUGHT FROM THE PSN.-

Select option number 5. (Restore PS3 System). Then select yes to perform step. You will then see this screen. "The hard disk's file system is corrupt and will be restored.

The PS3 will then restart. You will see many different languages, all that is is saying is, "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button". Press the PS button and set your settings when it finishes it will start up and its fixed!


Regards.

Ps3 wont play any games or dvds .tv reconizes ps3 has been turned on controllers 4 red lights stay on even when ps3 is turned off/


You may try a factory reset on your ps3. This will wipe all the saved games and data from the machine but I have found it to correct most issues with the ps3.

You will need to push the power button to turn on the unit, but keep the power button held down for about 30 seconds. You will hear a beep (resetting the video settings), then 2 more beeps. After the 3rd beep you can let go of the power button and it should take you to the set up screens like you just got it out of the box.

You will lose everything you have saved doing this but it seems to make the system run just like out of the box again. If this does not fix the problem then it most likely is a hardware issue and may need serviced or replaced.

First thing to try is a video reset.
