This could be a problem with your AC power cord, try these fixes. If they do not work you ca contact sony at:

www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or
www.uk.playstation.com/help-support/ps3


  • The console might not be turned on. Turn on the console using the main power switch on the back of the console.
  • Make sure the AC power cord is securely connected.
  • Visually inspect the AC power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.
  • Confirm the wall power outlet is active (receiving power). Try a different power outlet.
  • If possible, test the power cord by connecting it to a different PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If possible, try another AC power cord on your PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PLAYSTATION 3 power supply and the PLAYSTATION 3 may need service.
  • Make sure the vents are not obstructed in anyway.
  • Make sure there is adequate ventilation for the PLAYSTATION 3. There should be at least four (4) inches of clearance between the air vents on the system and any walls, televisions, entertainment centers, etc. Otherwise the unit may not function properly due to what are actually environmental issues.

    Last night I was loading a game in the PS3. It made the sound of a game loading then the sound didnt stop for about 20 to 30 sec. Now everytime I try to play a game it doesn't even show a game being...


    you have to change your laser lens, thats probably what's wrong since your ps3 does not recognize the game when you insert it, you can chage it your self by buying a new laser lens for your ps3 if you do make sure to specify your playstation3 system i.e: Playstation 3 80gb or Playstation 3 SLIM 250 gb

    Hi,

    This is a worldwide issue with the Sony Network today which might be due to system maintenance. Sony is working on the problem and your system should work normally when the issue is fixed.

    My playstation3 says harddisk not found on the console


    You will have to either install a new HDD or call sony ( look under the contact us info on the ps3 website) and have it repaired. You will have to get them to send you a box and then send it to them. Hopefully you are under warranty, otherwise it will cost approx $180

    Making a buzzing sound, and displaying horizontal lines


    Contact Sony and tell them the problem. As long has youve had the playstation3 for under one year and have not touched the warranty seal at the side of the playstation then you can have your old playstation3 replaced.

    The starup screen is not going to the main menu


    Try this:


    Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).

    Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

    1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

    2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

    3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

    4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

    Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.
