Try turning off your Media Server Connection and update it...
You can turn it off by going to your system settings and go all the way down to Network Settings and click on Media Server Connection and disable it. That was my problem.. Hope this works!

Won't restore


Have you tried updating from a PC?
http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/pc_update/index.htm

If that fails you might have to enter safemode to update the firmware. I would highly recommend to contact Playstation first to see if there is anything else before entering safemode.

The link below is information on how to use safemode.

NOTE: Do at your own risk.

Would not restore now it won't evn\en come on the TV screen


Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart 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

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

My old model ps3 stops playing any cd,DVD or games.... But everything else works just fine. Any solution? Updating 3.50 will help? Thanks


An update will most likely not help. It sounds like there is something wrong with your disc drive, and an update won't help that. Sounds like a hardware issue, my man.

My new homefront ps3 will play on my friends playstation but will not play on mine help


If it won't play online what you'll need to do is set a static ip in your router for your ps3 and then open ports TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070
(you'll need to contact your router about that)

If it won't play AT ALL follow these steps ( http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=1488 ) to get into safe mode and select option 3.

If NONE of your PS3 games work and NONE of your blu rays work, your blu ray drive is fried and you'll need to get it fixed. You can go to: us.playstation.com/getservice to get it fixed.
