Are you connected with the HDMI cable? DId you switch TVs recently?

You might have the resolution under settings set wrong. so the screen is really tiny. If your remote for the tv has a zoom option, zoom up until you can see the settings to change the output

I have a madcatz call of duty black ops controll, it charges when i connect it but wont connect to my ps3? help me!


You need to sync your controller with the ps3, put the USB dongle into one of the available slots on the ps3 - exactly where you would normally connect a wired controller on the front. Now switch on your ps3, the dongle will connect, now put your USB cable into the black ops controller and switch on - your 4 lights should be flashing on the controller. Now press connect on the USB dongle, your controller should now sync to the ps3 and hopefully will show as controller No 1. Remove the USB cable and play wireless.

Ps3 controller won't turn on...


hi..

Hardware problem. Usually the motherboard, sometimes it's the hard drive. You can use a few ideas from this guide:

http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&thread.id=3290911

but more than likely you'll have to send the unit into Sony for repair. You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY..

thank u

Playstation 3 80 GB will not boot up to start menu


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

This will sort everything out.

Need Help!!


its not your ps3, it could be that you have your internet locked or blocked so that you need a key code, so go and see if you could turn off your key code on your internet.

Ps3 80 gig


Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.

File system hard disc corrupted


the better choice is...

buy a new hd and replace it, the original go bad quick.
replacing it resolve all of corrupt problems.

sometimes, you repair it,then when going to save a game, the ps3 freezes.

No Wireless For 80 G


The 80 GB model does include wireless connection but there is no 80 GB version on sale in the UK (and the states as far as i know) so thats why it is not listed. there is also a new 40 GB version which will also have wifi. about the code input thing that seems very weird and i suggest using your controller to input the password.
