Have you tried turning the system off, than plugging the controller in and turning the system on. It may pick up the controller and allow it to work.

You can also try removing the back of the controller and disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it. Although this is not advised, the controller can be a very huge hassle to put back together. I've had that problem before.

Letting it die could also potentially help, although seeing as it's been over 24 hours I don't know if that's going to work, but it's always worth a try.

Anyway, hope this helps. be sure to rate if it did or not.

PS3 stuck on red light after it froze up. I unplugged it and replugged it and it's still stuck on the red light. It doesn't change or anything even after hitting the power button.


It would help, if you posted the model number of your system, as they do vary sightly. Is there a disk inside they system? This could be the main problem in witch there are several solutions to remove it. If not, than try inserting a disk, as the PS3 auto recognizes a disk being inserted and turns on the system. If the light is on, and it wont let you power it on, then generally it's the stuck disk problem. ^^ Hope this helps, and good luck.

Hi I just moved plugged in my ps3 the red standby light came on and now nothing it won't even try to turn on what should I do ?


Sorry I had no idea you sent me this message until today. I apologize for the delay. You probably found a solution by now but if you haven't, please try this..

Solution:

  1. With the PS3 in Standby mode (Red light on), press and hold the Start button until you hear a single beep, followed by double beeps.
  2. Connect the controller using USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.
  3. Now, the system restore screen (or whatever they call it) will come up like this

  4. You have several options here for restoring the system, some will unfortunately wipe up all your data, others will make you lose the file naming.
I hope this helps :D

Just bought a camper. The braking system the guy gave me was for a ford. (Husky Journey HD) I have a Nissan titan (2005). I have been trying to match the wires, but no success. Could you tell me what color...


OK on the truck side, brake controller harness wire colors are:

RED = +12V (Hot at all times, even with truck off)
RED/GREEN = Stop light (Hot when brake pedal is depressed)
BLACK = Ground
BROWN/WHITE = Brake out (variable voltage to trailer brakes, 2v-12v)
RED/BLUE = Dimmer (not used on most controllers)

On the controller side (these are pretty much universal):

BLACK = +12v
RED = Stop light
WHITE = Ground
BLUE = Brake out

Embedded dirt finder light stuck


Try cleaning out all the pathways you can get to. Trapped particles can mess up this indicator. Particularly check the extra mesh filter that is under the bag (there's a plastic grid that snaps over it to hold it into place). Clean that out and make sure the bag is securely in place.

Remote will not work


if the light is staying on this means that a button is stuck down on your remote. It might be defective I would contact the company about warranty.
