Hi i just want to suggest. if you have the first version of PS3 get a cooler fan. they overheat after some hours of use, after 2 or 3 years of use.
the ps3 as the xbox 360 has a security option that will protect the machine from burning. in the xbox you will see 3 red lights, no video o sound.
on the ps3 usually the picture flicks o it tries to freese while you play. and finally it will loose picture and sound, and won't turn off. you can try to just unplug the cord from the outlt, not from the ps3. let the unit rest for at least 5 hours. and try to play again. if the problem persist, you may have to take it in for service. good luck

My ps3 wireless controller will turn off my ps3 console. Why won't the controller turn on the ps3 console?


Try to resync the controller. With the system off, plug in the usb charging cord. then turn the system on. Use a pin to click the reset on the back of the controller. It should flash a number of times. Then it will stay on #1. It might take care of it. Good luck.

My ps3 fat won't pick up any ps3 wireless controller; solution


Install your usb charger cord to the system, and the controller before you turn it on. Then after you turn on the system, use a small pin, or paper clip to hit the reset button on the bottom of the controller. This solution works for all PS3 types, not just the fats. All that use Bluetooth controllers. Good luck. ^^

I have a ps3 and the picture won't. Show up and if


It sounds like you may have a resolution conflict occuring, to see if that is whats happening, hold the power button in for 15-30 seconds. While your doing this you will hear the standard beep of the console turning on, keep holding down the power button for around 15-30 seconds or until you hear another series of beeps. Then you will want to let go of the button and let the PS3 go through its process of reseting your video settings.
If this it not the issue I recommend calling Sony.

Harden pardon 680 receiver won't play my ps3


The HDMI cord transmit audio and video signals, if the PS3 does not offer any other option to send audio/video information I'am afraid there is no other way around this.

It turns on and comes onto a report problem so i send it but sometimes a report problem doesn't come up nether the less either way it starts for about 7 seconds then just freezes won't let me move...


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

Hi. My playstation won't work at all. When i try to turn it on, it goes on sometimes on the tv, or else, it says that i don't have connection from the PS3 to my tv.. I Checked my HDMI, and...


If the screen is just black and the PS3 doesn't turn itself off, then it could just be that the video settings don't go out through the correct output. This will reset the video output:
  • Hold the power button for 5-10 seconds until you hear two beeps; then let go
