Re: ps3 wont play

Is your console still under warranty? If so, then send it in to Sony for repair.

My ps3 will not play no games or dvds

If you have warranty with your PS3 you can send it to Sony so they can fix it. If you don't have warranty anymore then they will charge you $150 (that's a 150 dollars or some people said it was more pending on the different problems) for the repair of your PS3. Either way it can take up to 6 weeks before they send your PS3 back. Also note they wipe your hard drive contents!
Speaking of which you might try just this: reformatting your PS3 hard drive!
But if that doesn't work and you're not ready to pay that amount I suggest you use a guide that let's you repair your PS3 by yourself without the need of opening it. Such a guide fixes stuff like Yellow/Red/Green Light of Death (is your PS3 having one of those lights?) as they call it and other common problems with PS3 consoles (error codes, black screen, disk errors, error codes).

Am getting error code 8002f147 can you help

  • take out the hard drive
  • connect hard drive to pc (running windows 7 64bit, but any windows os should work without other software)
  • open up disk management - in win7 it asked me to make a master book record, so I did.
  • format in NTSF - that's right, NTSF - don't use quick format
  • get the rom of whatever version you were on before you upgraded - i had to search, but i found the us 3.30 rom
  • copy that rom to usb drive in folders PS3 ==> UPDATE ==> put rom named PS3UPDAT.PUP here
  • shut down pc, take out hd, take usb drive too
  • put hd back in ps3, put usb stick in ps3
  • boot ps3
  • a screen will pop up. press select + start
  • another screen (i think) later, press select + start
  • configure your ps3 setup - done

Ps3 shut down in the middle of play and will not turn back on. the power light does appear and when you press the on button it turns green for a moment and then yellow for a moment and the red blinking...


"When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:

• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.

• If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.

• Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.

• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."

I turn on the console and it shuts straight down, I was in the middle of playing call of duty, so the disc is still in the console and the machine wont turn on. You push the power button, it goes green the...

Your system is overheating, try to clean the exhaust vents using a vacuum with a brush head. Don't use canned air, this may work for a while but all you are doing is pushing the dust further inside the unit. Also you can buy PS3 inter-coolers for the unit.

PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....

Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.

Ps3 disk reading error

Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.
