Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

When my PS3 is turned on the red light stays solid no matter what. Physical buttons do not function at all. 4 different controllers (verified charged) have been unable to get a response... it just stays red with no reaction. Have tried multiple power cords and swapped out the hard drive for a different ps3 formatted drive. It's hard to know where to start when it will do so little...Any ideas?

I have a jumbo remote, lost my manual. I would like to program it to operate a sanyo tv. I need instructions please.


First, make sure the device you want to connect with your remote is turned on, whether that's the television, DVD player, VCR player, etc. Now aim the Innovage remote at the device. Press the button on the remote control that corresponds to the device (TV, DVD, etc.). Now, press and hold the SET button on the remote control until the LED light on the remote control holds a steady red.

Enter the 4-digit code for your device by pressing the number keys on the remote control (see list below). When you press the fourth digit, the LED light should turn off. This means the remote and the device are "speaking" to each other. Press the OK button to store the code.

If the LED light blinks three times and then remains a solid red, the Innovage remote doesn't recognize the code for your device. Verify the correct code, then go through the programming steps again.

Test the function by using your remote to cycle through all programmed devices (TV, VCR, etc.).

If your device code isn't listed, try the Code Search function:
Turn on the device you wish to match with your remote. Aim the remote at the device and press and hold the Code Search button in the upper left of your remote for at least 3 seconds until the LED light on the remote turns a solid red. Press the button on the remote for the item you want to program (TV, DVD, etc.). The LED light should blink once and then remain a solid red.

Press the On/Off button slowly until the device you want to program turns off. The LED light will blink once each time you depress the On/Off button. When the device you want to program turns off, press the ENTER button. The LED button will turn off and the code for that device will be stored in your remote.

The codes to various devices are listed at:
www.remotecentral.com

Please note that there are often several codes for one particular device. It may take several programming attempts until you find the code that works with your device.

My PS3 has had the YLOD 3 times now and I've repaired every time myself. Each time I repaired it last about 6months before it gets hit by the YLOD again. After repairing the console for a 3rd time I was...


Thank You..... Thank You... Thank you.. for answering your own question :) I was going through the exact same thing and couldn't figure it out for the life of me. Only difference was this was only my second re-flow. I know I did everything perfect too. Because like you mine last 6-8 month's. Not two weeks some some who don't put the added tlc needed. After reading your solution I noticed that because of the way that ribbon bends. Some of the beads were protruding from the ribbon. So I pushed them down with a plastic fork prong so I wouldn't rip it. Then flipped the ribbon so it wouldn't bend over the end again. Thank you again Chilled....

My ps3 wont turn on


Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced

Controller not working


I had the same problem, so I called customer service and had me do this:

1) with the USB cable plugged into the controller, power down the ps3 and turn the on/off switch in the back to "off".
2) hold your thumb down on the front button (where you normally can turn it on) while turning the switch on the back to "on" again. keep your thumb or finger on the front switch.
3) You will hear the normal "beep" that you usually hear when the PS3 boots up, but after a few seconds later, you will hear a secondary beep. Remove your thumb or finger after this second beep and the PS3 will reset itself after a few seconds. I have a projector connected to it, so I had to set the display screen back to HDMI afterwards, but when I disconnected the USB cable the controller worked wirelessly again. The customer service rep said that this allowed the controller to pair with the PS3 again. Note: You probably do not have to have the controller plugged into the USB cable at all while doing this. I just happened to have it plugged in. Hope this helps.
