Only comes on when touching the actual power button, not working when pushing the PS button on the controllers. When on, there's no menu, just the wavy blue background, after a few minutes, it says it...


Ironically this happened to me just the other day. What I ended up doing was a complete reset/format. You will lose some data so I hope you have a back up.

Press and hold the power button until the light on the playstation goes red again.
Let off the power button and press again, hold it until you hear two fast beeps.
Once you hear the beeps release the button.
Plug your controller in via the USB cable.
It will now bring you to a recovery menu.

It will give you these options:

  • estart System:
    • Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.

  • Restore Default Settings:
    • Reset all system settings back to default.

  • Restore File System:
    • Checks for corrupt/missing system files.

  • Rebuild Database:
    • Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.

  • Restore PS3 System:
    • Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.

  • System Update:
    • Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System
You CAN try restore file system but since you said it froze, it probably won't work again...but you can give it a shot. It didn't work for me. What I ended up having to do was "Restore PS3 System". This will format everything and start from scratch.

Also, another quick fix that you can try would be to pop open the ps3 hard drive case, remove the drive and plug it back in to ensure that it's properly seated.

If none of these work you may have a dead hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

I have followed all directions to turn off parental controls on my ps2 but it will not let me. what should i do?


Follow these steps:
  1. Turn on the PlayStation 2 and remove any disk that may already be in the device. Then insert a DVD, preferably one that will prompt you for the parental control code. Insert the code and allow the DVD to begin playing.
  2. Press the "Select" button once the movie has started. This will bring up a menu. Find the "Settings" icon, and press "X" to enter the "Settings Menu." Scroll down and select the "Parental Controls Menu" and press "X."
  3. Reset the "DVD Parental Control Level" to "Off," which will allow any DVD to play without prompting the user for the passcode. You may also choose to set it to level 8, which is the least stringent level.
  4. Do not exit the menu after inputting the new settings. Instead, eject the DVD and remove it. This should cause the PlayStation to reset with the new settings enabled. If it does not automatically reset, then manually reset it by either flipping the switch in the back, or by holding the reset button in the front down. Leave the device off for a few seconds.
  5. Turn the PlayStation back on and input a DVD that previously required the passcode. The PlayStation should now play the DVD without prompting you for the passcode. If it does, then you're finished. If it still prompts you for the passcode, then start again at step one and try it again.

Error code 80710102 pops up as i attempt to connect to the internet. It accepts the connection to the router IP address but fails to connect to the internet... Help me please


Are you trying to use WI FI or a Wired Connection:

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and go through the motions again.

Good luck.

If all checks out, make sure that your system is updated to v3.56.

If the system won't perform this task for you once connected, download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb stick and then:

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Select 6.

Thank you for using Fixya, your Nano at this point may need to under go a reset.

To do that slide the Hold switch to HOLD and back again. Then press the

until the Apple logo appears.

Sansa e200 freeze problem


I had that problem a few times you just have to reset it. Hold down the power button for 15 seconds, maybe 20 but that should do it. Then it will reset its self and turn back on.

My Sansa e250R, 2 gigs, froze. Help!


It seems like your E250R is experiencing a temporary system error due to a corrupted song, and needs to be reset. Try to "Soft Reset" your player, press and hold the "Menu" button until the LCD light and scroll wheel light turn off. Since the player was probably left on for more than 7 hours (as you indicated), you would need to re-charge the player before proceeding further. Charge it for at least 2-3 hours. Next, try to format the player to rid of any corruption then re-transfer the songs. If you have subscription songs, then I would suggest to delete the song you last played which caused the error. I hope this helps. There is another solution for the player, but for now this might actually resolve the issue. Let me know the results. :)
