It won't turn on

I bought a playstation 3. I played it three times. Today I went to turn it on and it went on until it was to start the game and then the game went off. it will not turn on. It is not the television or the hook ups.

My picture started flickering the other night while playing a game. Then I went to turn it on today and I can't get a picture, there is still sound however. Thinking maybe a video card problem or something...

Its sounds like a video cord problem, if you are hooked up by the yellow red and white cords to your TV, adjust them until the picture returns, its a VERY common problem on EVERY TV and console since the SNES. Could also be the plug on the back of the PS3 if you just play with the cords your problem should resolve.

My ps3 won't play my disk-based games

This sounds a similar problem what I had. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

Game wont work

You could try a system restore, back up your HDD first, and see if the BR driver is behind. If the problem persists you can have Sony fix it free.

When playing a game the screen goes blank after a while

Dude, all you have to do is restart your console and it should start up fine. If it doesn't, keep restarting it until it does. The new-age HD cables have to load a lot of **** to and from your TV to display properly, and if it has the smallest delay, it doesn't display ****.

Cant play turismo 5 only on line

All of the new games try to connect to the internet as soon as the game loads. It's like all the silly errors you get when you turn your computer on without the internet. My ps3 automatically connects me to the internet as soon as I turn it on. You shouldn't be limited to playing online like warhawks. I think it's just an annoyance.
