Hi,
You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

PS3 Recovery Menu


  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

Get off your duff and press the power button on the PS3 hold it down, until it beeps then the system will shut down, all you have to do then is press the ps button on your controller to restart the system.

When i turn on my PS3, No image comes up on the HD Channel which i play the PS3 on, however the channel settings recognise a signal from the cable but still no picture


I would first try a simple reset. To do this turn the PS3 on my pressing the power button, except hold it down, keep it held until it beeps again and shuts down.

Once it shuts down from you holding the power button, turn it on normally and see if your video settings have returned.

My ps3 keeps shutting down. It is ventilated. What


If it is blinking a red light this is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know). This is caused by the unit overheating causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

My ps3 wont turn on


Hi There,

Your Processor needs reflowing (re soldering on the board) as the system over heated, it caused stress on the solder joints underneath.

Sony charge £150 and give a month warranty to repair it.

We charge £60.00 and give a 6 month warranty.

Im having problems with the playstation freezing when im playing


if the ps3 also shuts down on its again own due to overheating. It is necessary to disassemble the unit and apply AS5 compound and shim the heatsinks to ensure proper contact between the heat sink and the processors. I can do this for $55 or you can send to SONY if under warranty. If not under warranty they will fix for 150+tax call 1800345SONY. if they decide they cant fix it they will send you a reburbished unit, which may , unfortunately, break again..XBOX360 has the same EXACT problems...
