Are you getting any errors?

some content has to be activated when you go to play it even after you download it.

some activate after install witch requires internet again.

and some get verified when you load the game, usually there is a msg in game that says verifying downloaded content. so you may need to find internet access and run the games/content you downloaded and it should work after that.

basicly anything you download make sure you accually play it before you leave internet

Having update problems took to friends house to try his internet.all i did was unplug 2 cables from the back and took it.got there and had sound but no video.took it home,got video no sound.still no...


This sounds like a connection problem. If you are not using HDMI then you can have some issue with connecting the component cables. The component cables have similar colors. Be sure to connect each one to the correct color on the TV. Be sure not to connect the two for audio into the ports for video on the TV. If you are using HDMI i would suggest while it is connected to your TV, go into settings then video settings and select a lower resolution such as 720p. Then take it to your friends house and connect via HDMI.

Can I purchase a ps3 game in europe and will play on a ps3 system from the USA


Yes, PS3 games in blu-ray format will work.
However, pay attention to this small detail: If you plan on buying or downloading DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT (DLC), you'll need an European account on your ps3 (create one and fill it with information from Europe) in order to be able to use them.
If you just want to play the game and not worry too much about the downloadable content and all those kind of extra stuff you can get for the game, go ahead!
PS: If you want to test the fact that it truly works with your current setup, create that european account on your ps3 and download some european demos. You'll have your compatiblity answer resolved instantly.

I downloaded RE5 extra content on my hard drive and another persons console and when i tried to transfer my hard drive back to my console the extra content wont play. How can i get this to work?


The reason behind this was due to the console's unique encription which is being transmitted back to Microsoft whenever hooked up thru Xbox Live using a particular gamertag/profile was activated to avoid software duplication and/or any sort of software piracy. What you can do is to recover your gamertag into your own Xbox 360 and load the game RE5 and it DLC should work after that.

Simply play online. Things downloaded on the same HDD but different console won't work on another console for some reason, so just get on Xbox LIVE.

When playing COD online it will constantly search for a game but never joins a game


You could be in a bad game type where no one plays, or this can be caused by your internet connection. If you dont have the required internet speed, you wont find a game. If you have highspeed and it still isn't connecting, try a friends internet conenction, or contact Sony.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

PS3 may have been doing an update of some kind and you have interrupted it and damaged the system software.
You might be able to download the system software and install it back back it will most likely wipe everything saved on your ps3.
Not sure how to do this as I have never turned off the power during an update ?
Found this site not sure if it will help
as it does not explain how to install the software onto a ps3
https://www.playstation.com/en-au/get-help/ps3-system-software/

but this you tube video explains how to do it
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5OIZ73U7v0

Also you could have instead interrupted a need for speed update. It needs to update to play in network mode .

Nothing will show


When powering on the ps3, hit the power button and hold it for 10 seconds the PS3 will beep. This resets the PS3 to display at standard resolution.
