Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Okay well I bought a used 80 gb ps3 at a game stop they had checked it out everything was fine. But today I tryed to play a game and my controller I got with the ps3 won't turn on, I plugged the controller into the ps3 and it still wouldn't turn on... So do I have to let it charge a little while before I try to use it or whats wrong with it?
Hardware problem. Usually the motherboard, sometimes it's the hard drive. You can use a few ideas from this guide:
but more than likely you'll have to send the unit into Sony for repair. You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY..

SOURCE: PS3 80 Need to delete
The best and really only way to transfer games from one ps3 to another is to get a portable thumb (usb) drive and save the games to it. Next save the games on the new ps3.
To wipe your account info from the other ps3, all you need to do is delete the user. You don't have to worry about personal information because that is not stored on the console. The information is all stored online.
If this helps, please rate me...thanks

Go to Settings, System Settings, Back Up Utility.
You'll have to hook up an external usb drive with a good amount of space.
Use the backup utility.
Swap the 40gb drive with the 80gb drive.
Follow the onscreen PS3 prompts. A message will possibly pop telling you that you need to download a firmware file etc. If it does download the latest PS3 firmware from here:
You'll need to have it installed on a folder on your external drive like this:
The playstation will look for the file once you press the SELECT and START buttons at the same time on your ps3 controller.
Follow the prompts, it should be straightforward.
After everything is done.
Go back into Settings, System Settings, Back Up Utility.
Click Restore and then follow the prompts.
Boom you're back in business.

Tried several things and determined the blu-ray lens are shot. Traded system in towards a new one from Game Stop. Not worth the expense of lens replacement, cleaning and overall frustration.
