Re: ps3

Do you have an internet connection available? If so, the PS3 should be able to download the update.

My son's PS3 won't play new games. What is the problem?

There is a possibility the lens is dirty or broken. i would recommend you contact Sony, or take it to a local electronic repair shop. Warning: option 2 may void the warranty on the PS3.

It wont let me download an update to play online

If the update is a system software update (and not a game update) you can download the update to USB from a computer and then use the USB drive to update your PS3. Instructions are here - and the actual update is here -
(You would need to click on the red Download button)

For game updates I've had to power off/on the PS3 before to get it to properly download the update. If a wired ethernet connection is available you may want to try swapping between wired/wireless connection to see if you can get the download to work correctly.

I got the 250g PS3 for my son for Christmas. Works great with Games, DVDs, etc. But, it will not play a Blue-Ray Disc. It keeps going back to (no source) after I insert it everytime! I am running an HDMI...

Well the most typical problem for something like this is that the Blu-ray software is either disabled on the Playstation console OR you need to update your Blu-ray software by allowing the Playstation to connect to an internet source

This will show you some general set-up settings to use :

This link literally in the first 30 seconds shows you how to allow your PS3 system to update the blu-ray player itself :

We bought a hardly used ps3 for our son for x-mas. We have tried hooking it up but can't get it too play. The tv is not an HD tv, the older style tv, also have a cable box attached to the tv. Plugged the...

or the previous owner of the ps3 had the settings on the system on HD settings and now the Non-HD TV cannot recognize the signal. In order to change the settings you have to find someone with an HD TV and switch the output settings from HD to AVI

Games & BlueRay DVDs suddenly won't play

I have good news and bad news. Good news is I have a solutions to both problems. First problem not reading Blu-Ray disc/games. The laser is bad. They are relatively easy to replace is the good news. The bad news is since the chinese new year they have been very expensive even on eBay we are talking $70 to $100. I can give you detailed instruction on how to change the laser if need be just email me.
Updating the PS 3 you can download the latest update to a thumb drive and install it that way. Very easy. Just google playstation 3 update. Any questions email me

Connecting x rocker chair to ps3

I HAVE THE SOLUTION for all ps3 and ps3 slim gamers with the x rocker chair. it took my 2 long hours of frustration but i finally figured out how to make it work with ps3 slim. okay, forget about the red and white audio output plugs, those aren't needed. (my tv has no audio output jacks so i had to find a different solution) find the cable with the green headphone plugs on both sides. plug one end into the tx box and the other into the headphone jack on your tv. make sure your sound settings on your ps3 are set normally so that the sound is coming out of the tv. turn on the tx box, turn up the chair volume (and volume on the tv) and there you have it. enjoy!
