Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I accidentally touched my sons playstation 3 while cleaning. It popped the game out and I must have turned the console off. When he tried to put the game back in, now it will not read the disc. We tried a dvd and another game and nothing. So I don't have to buy another, pleaes give me some ideas to try to get this fixed.

When the system is powered on Hold the power button down until you hear it beep (2) times ....Beep........Beep the system will then shut restart the system,....By doing this you have done a hard reset and the system goes back to factory settings....(If this doesnt work...It is by far cheeper to send the system in to SONY and have it fixed than it would be to buy a new one) LESS THAN HALF THE COST

How do u eject game from playstation 3 console?

On the front of the machine there is a flat spot with labels on it . The triangle in the middle is the eject but the system has to be turned on which is to the right of the triangle both are just touch to activate. ig machine does not come on with a green light after a few then ther is a power switch on back left of machine. After switching on you will need to still touch the on sensor i mentioned on the front. Now most importantly your son may have his ps3 password protected and i cant help you with that but the password usually is only for the internet part of the functions. Hope this helps. please leave feed back if this helped. have a nice day

You cannot do that, you will most likely have to do it all again. Unless you can somehow prove you did it, and apply for another one?
