My Ps3 Wont Turn On It indicates on stand by mode(solid red light).i pressed the power button; it wont turn on and it doesnt work or even beeps. i also tried using the ps button on the contoller.same...

Hi Shiman,

Are you seeing any flashingred/yellow lights?

If so this is the red lighterror and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with allof the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they loseconnection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the redflashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and theywill fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and itwill also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heatbuild up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

I don't know how to connect my wireless ps2 controller from gamestop!

Should have come with a controller and a wireless adapter. The wireless adapter plugs into the PS2 where the controller would go. Probably has a sync button. Press it (the light will flash) and press the corresponding sync button on the controller. When the lights stop flashing on both it should be all set. Tough tell without a model number, though.

When you are on the screen where you select number of games, use the second WiiMote to click on the two characters on one of the sides of the screen. that will assign them to the player 2 controller. Hope this helps =)

My ps3 keeps saying ne detected controllers when one is plugged in, there are 4 red lights flasing on the controller which is plugged into the console, after 20 minutes still no controller detected, any...

You need to press the ps switch and see if it says charging.When the lights flash on the controller it means they are charging the batteries.
The only way I know of to fix this problem is to switch off the PS3 from the switch in the back.Then turn it back on.The PS3 will assign the controllers.

Cant connect a big ben interactive controller to a playstation 3

bigben controller and ps3
i had this problem with bigben mega pack bought with ps3 nov08
the problem is caused i find that the sony wireless controller supplied
has been already allocated as number 1 controller, this has to be changed while the bigben matches
the FIX:
boot the machine with sony controller and go into
settings\accessory settings\reassign controllers\ and re-assign the sony as number 3
(use left stick to move numbers up/down)
plug in the bigben receiver unit into a usb slot and then switch on the bigben
now the receiver light should now stop flashing and the bigben now has a single light agains number 1
go again into re-assign controllers and change the bigben to number 2
then re-assign the sony controller from number 3 to number 1
close down system
re-boot using the sony PS button (the bigben PS button does not boot PS3)
the sony should now be indicating that it is again number 1
the bigben receiver unit should have a steady red light but
the bigben will have all the lights flashing - click the PS button and they will stop
it now should only showing one light next to number 2, so is assigned as number 2 conroller
thats it
Note: I wanted to use 2 controllers for the game 'littlebigplanet'
Now if the two controllers are on, the game asks to assign a profile for the
other controller when it opens, so then you choose another user (that u have created)
Then another rag doll drops into the pod that is controlled only by the bigben (user2)

Controller still wont work

Hmm. I think i'll need a bit more info please.

When you reset your PS3 and the system's light goes red and you hit the PS button your controller the four lights just flash? Is that right? The only time your controller will "connect is when you plug it in with USB?

Try this. Turn your PS3 on. Press the reset button on the back of your controller and hold it for a few seconds, then press the PS button to see if it connects then. If it doesn't you could try removing the internal battery from the controller and putting it back in. That might clear up any settings that were saved in it.

Let me know how it goes.
