Try unpluging it and leaving it over night as this fixed mine last time it did the solid red light.

    I found my ps3 would not power on due to my plasma ball which was on and near the computer, it was interfering with the touch controls and confusing the ps3 into thinking no one was pressing on the power button or eject button, if your pad is not synced to the system then this will not power it on ether.

My Ps3 wont turn on


Does the PS3 turn off?
If it stays on but you have a black screen, is it possible you have your tv set to the wrong channel?
Are you able to hook up your PS3 to another tv...preferably one that you know will work...such as a friend's tv that also has a ps3

Ps3 wont stay on it just flicks off inside a sec


Is this a slim ps3??? If it comes on and goes back off within 5 seconds or so with no beeping chances are its the psu (power standby unit). Lots of slims have had this issue. Replacments on ebay are 40-60$$$.

Hi when i switched my ps3 on the other day, it started up but then the fan stoped and it went silent but the green light stayed on. It dosn't let me put it on standby, or eject. never come across this,...


Try resetting the video:

While the ps3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if it solves your problem.

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

Wont accept disc


Try this....after a lot of frustration and research, what i found on the internet for this problem was usless. I tried holding down the eject button for 15 seconds to reset the disc drive, still it would'nt accept the disc. As i literally picked up the phone to ring sony, as the ps3 was on standby i pressed the eject button multiple times and heard 2 beeps each time, still the system stayed on standby. After that i then tried just putting the disc in as normal as its on standby and the system booted automatically and accepted my disc. I hope this helps others, as mine now works perfectly.
