Seems like your Power Supply went dead or either a faulty button.. Since those are touch pads those sometimes wear out. Another issue could be due to overheating.. Does it make any noises?

Shut down while watching movie


Most likely a YLOD problem.
This problem occurs when that PS3 Unit overheats and the GPU or CPU becomes UN-soldiered from the mother board. the only way to repair this is by a re-flow of the soldier under the chips on the board.
This needs to be done by a professional due to the extreme sensitive nature of the internal electronics. There are a few repair services out there. I have been doing these repairs for a few years now and it usually takes me about 2 hours to repair a unit and then I like to test it for 30 hours to make sure it won't overheat anymore.
you can contact me by email if you would like me to fix your unit for you

I was watching a movie when suddenly the playstation turn off by itself and now i try turn turn it back the green light comes back but then it turns off after 5 seconds , whats going on?


unplug everything and then plug it back in. also wait a little bit and let it cool down and if it is on carpet, move onto something that breathes, like a wire stand. it may have over heated.

I put a movie on my playstation pirrana 3D watched it in 2D and now when I try to play a game or watch a movie it comes up with a warning saying things like you my experience discomfort whilst watching 3d...


If you can see the screen for the PS3 dashboard before playing the game I would suggest trying to reset all your video display settings on the PS3 first then try it again. If you changed any settings on your tv try setting them to defaults. The PS3 system has an auto video adjustment system built into it and sometimes it has a brain fart and gets locked up on a specific setting and doesn't want to change back by itself. One way to try for resetting the video settings on the system is turning off the power switch on the back of the system with it on instead of the regular power button on the front.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

My ps3 won't play and disk of any kind


Sounds like the laser just took a dive.

You can try updating the firmware to 2.76 but 95% of the time the laser needs to be swapped.

My ps3 will not play blue ray or my games.


the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and 730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has failed (due to the extreme heat conditions in ur PS3). you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX 2 week wait)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often

I just finished watching a movie on my ps3 and now it wont read any discs


First try putting the movie you watched when this happened, back into the PS3, see if you are able to watch this movie and if it reads this particular disk... if it will, contact the company and tell them that your PS3 isn't reading any of the disks, they will send you a box and repair your PS3 free of charge and send it back to you in about 3 weeks.

Hope this helps :)

It may be a video setting in the PS3 is not matching the TV. Try this. Turn off your PS3. Then, press the 1/0 button for more than 5 seconds. This should reset your video settings.
