Turn your PS3 completely off by pressing the power button and then turning off the power switch in the back. Your PS3 should show no lights. Wait about an hour to let the system completely cool down, then turn the power switch on the back on again. Now press the power button and hold it until the system beeps. This will reset a few settings and make sure the system is OK. Hook your PS3 up using the RCA Red White and Yellow cable and turn it on again, and you should be able to be back up and running.

Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D

My PS3 has been broken for a very long period of time. About 6-9 months now, I've lost track. Every time I turn it on my PS3, it starts with the wavy animation and the colored background, and then the...


Ok, please try the following steps :

Step 1. Turn your PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then 5 seconds later it will beep again and then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this then continue to the next step

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

When i turn my ps3 on,red light goes green then red right away


Try disconnecting your PS3 and then for 10 seconds if that doesn't work, disconnect all jackets meaning all usb connection ports connected in it. Remove them, then turn on your ps3 see what happens (without using the controller), then disconnect the ps3 cord that connects to your extension cord or jacket and plug it back in. Try it again. Then again with the controller could try. Try disconnecting other ports such as other stuff like as listed, Irons,Fans, etc.           !!!!!!DON'T USE TOO MUCH POWER!!!!


The Same thing happened to me on my Wii though.



If nothing works call Customer Support (SONY)
