Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

Ps3 slim won't turn on. I was playing Skate yesterday and I think downloading a Batman demo in the backround and the whole system just shut off mid-game. I pressed the power button and nothing. I unplugged the cable in the back and waited a few seconds, plugged it back in and the standby light came on, hit the power button and all the lights turned on and then shut down. No blinking lights, no different colors, nothing. This continues to be the case. It was a little warm at first but now it's completely cooled down. What do I do?

Well, i agree 100% with what kennethrcalh said, but if you have no warranty, like me, you could try this solution. I've made it with mine and it is functioning perfectly now. Just open your PS3 Slim, take off the battery (model APS-250), open it and turn left (something around 10º) two capacitors, the OCP (Over Current Protection) and PFC (Power Factor Correction). Those adjustments solved my problem. Here is a video with a tutorial:
Good Luck!

Warranty is the only way to go with these new ps3 releases....anything you do to the unit will void that warranty and if it does break beyond repair you would be out of luck........start by clicking here and completing the pages they ask for. Typically the will send you a post paid box that you will send the console back in and they will mail it right back after the have repaired the problem....Sry but working on any electronic with this type of fatal error that is still under warranty is not recommended....leave it to the manufactures professionals!!!!
GOOD LUCK and pls rate this post!!! :D

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.

Try turning the system off completely with the main power switch on the back of the console. If that doesnt work call Sony technical support for further help.
