My ps3 keeps turning off all by its self


What are you doing when it shuts down, are you playing games/movies. Downloading anything, on the internet? Have you checked to see if all cables are securely attached?

My sons ps3 will play games fine, but just started where it wouldnt play 1 move reg type not blue ray. then it wouldn play a couple of movies... playing some but not others, now wont play movies, but will...


depending which ps3 you have.
If you have the dual laser model one of the lasers could be damaged or require cleaning.
so the bluray side would work fine, whilst the reg side for reading dvds and cds could be damaged.
it might be worth buying a cd lens cleaner with the brushes and fluid and running it a few times in the ps3 this could work but you might be looking at the laser being replaced.
Hope this helps

Ps3


try setting the console back to factory settings, i had the oposite problem, would play games but not movies. will it play blu-ray movies or regular? if it doesnt play blu-rays, your disc reader may have gone bad.

Will play games but the audio cuts in and out


the audio skipping like that mean that the wires are shorting or frayed... you will have to replace your audio cords. Just as a note if this doesnt fix it theres a chance its inside the ps3 or just your audio reciever. Oh, before you go buying the audio cord try messing with the audio setting in the menu first, it might just be your audio sampling is set too low

Ps3 not reading discs!


If you keep on getting this problem you will need to send it in to get it fixed, or you can actually readjust the laser from home.
To do this you can use a good repair guide.
