Re: ps3 wont come on!!

Hey, your screen settings may need to be reset. You can reset your playstation 3 screen settings by first turning of the playstation three, then turning it on by hitting the power button on the console and hold it for 5 seconds. You should hear it beep several times and then it should work.

My ps3 wont turn on and i think a disc is inside. what do i do?

I just want to let everyone know that I had the same problem. This isn't a fix to make the machine work again. This is a fix that will let you get a disc stuck in the machine out when the ps3 won't power on. Turn the machine power off via the switch in the back. Hold the power button on the front of the machine down for about 15-30 seconds. Then, without letting go of the power button on the front of the machine, turn the switch on in the back. This made my machine power on for about 20 seconds, just long enough for me to get the disc out of machine. I could then take the ps3 back to the retailer I purchased it from. Just to clue everyone in on a possible cause of this problem, the woman from Sony techical support, the one who told me this trick, said that this is happening only when playing Activision games. For me it was Call of Duty 4. Binary Bob

i suggest you look for a pinhole hole in the drive tray area where you can push in the end of a small paperclip.

this couls save you disc.

the ps3? i think you may have a power/battery issue, my dell laptop acted this way when it died.

does the ps3 have a battery? do you have a defective power cord? call sony, they value custumer relations -- want you to uy more sony.

good luck
