This is not good. The Playstation 3 warranty does cover wear & tear or accidental mishaps. Usually theres nothing you can do when electronics have water damage.

My guess is the urine got inside the hardware and the system is finished but i'm not 100% on that. I would contact Sony's support line to see what they would recommend.


Here is the Sony Playstation 3 warranty page

Good luck!

Dog urine smell


Use a mixture of water and vinegar. About 50% for each. Use a handheld carpet cleaner to get rid of the excess after you let the vinegar/water mixture sit for a few minutes. The vinegar smell will disappear after a day or two.

Blue disk light on until console unplugged now games won't work


One has nothing to do with the other. It's a coincidence.

The blue light means that there is an update available from Nintendo to be installed. It could also mean that you received a message or news from Nintendo. If you don't like the blue light, you can change it in the wiiconnect24 settings.

If your Wii isn't reading games, the first thing to do is to check the disc. If it is not scratched or no discs at all are working, your drive needs to be replaced. You can find a new Wii DVD drive replacement at the following page:

When i turn on my ps3 it says the correct hard drive cant be found. also the blue light is not on only the green power light


First of all the blue light will only be on if a disc in the in system. If the disc is in and no blue light I am not sure what the problem is. As far as the hard drive. You can do a system restore. If will format your hard drive and you will lose all saved game data and anything else you had on the drive. If you downloaded items from the playstation store, you can download them again. Just deactivate your system from the store if yoc. You might also try removing the hard drive and then putting it back in. See if it came lose at all.

Dog knocked over drive while on, now it does not work.


If it's making a scratching and screeching noise, could be the head dragging on the platter. If that happened when it was subject to force, the heads are now damaged, as may be the platter(s) as well. Sounds like it may need a clean room recovery service. And failing hard drives aren't like wine, they don't get better with age. So if you have data that is not replaceable, and absolutely needs to be recovered, turn it off now. And see if you can find a local recovery facility. It's an expensive process for clean room services.

Cherry Systems in Atlanta, Ga is one. DriveSavers out west is another well known outfit. Geek Squad claims to have clean room services as well, but never looked into it.

Pinnacle Video Transfer: at REC, all lights turn red--except USB


how about deleting all the software of that device and reinstalling it as a new device.

the program may have corrupted the flash drive and all the data that is on it and when you pluged into any other device it may of worked a few time but that it will start corrupting everything you have plugin your flash drive into.

you are going to reformat the flash drive and re install any type of drivers for the flash drive and check every where you have used the flash drive has not corrupt any of the systems you are using.

let hope we got it before you loose your intire system due to corrupted software downloads or uploads to flash drive and computer system and this may include a network if you are on one.

PS3 won't turn on


hi Torgsrus.
PS3 Light sequence
The following pictures illustrate the CECHX0X model, however the light sequence is applicable to all PlayStation 3 models.

No lights are on:

When no lights are on, this means that the main power switch on the back of the ps3 is off or the PS3 is unplugged. When the main power switch is off (the '0' is pressed) and you will not be able to access any features of the PS3 system. To turn on the PS3 system, make sure the main power switch is on (the 'I' side is pressed down).

If the PS3 does not turn on:
· Make sure the power cord is not frayed or damaged
· Try using another power cord, if available
· Make sure the main power switch on the back of the PS3 system is turned on
· If you continue to have issues contact our Technical support.

Solid Red:


When the power status light is solid red, this means that the PS3 system is off (or in standby mode).
Standby, mode means the PlayStation 3 system is off, but is ready to be turned on by pressing the power button.

If the ps3 system will not turn on when you press the power button, this is an issue with the PS3 system and you will need to send your system in for service.

Solid Green:

When the power status light is solid green, this means that the PS3 is turned on.
You should be able to navigate the XMB, play games, access the Playstation store,etc.
To turn of the PS3, simply press and hold the power button for two or more seconds.
If the power status light is green ,and you are experiencing problems- have a look on our forums for troubleshooting.

Flashing Red:


When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly overheated.

This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
If this happens:
· Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.
· If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like an entertainment area, move it to a more open area.
· Leave the ps3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.
· If you continue to have issue, you may need to send the console in for service.

Flashing Green:


When the power status light flashed green, it means that the PS3 system is turning off. Please wait while the system turns off.

If the PS3 system does not shut down immediately, it may be trying to finish save data to the Hard Drive. If it is, do not turn the main power switch on the back off as it may cause data on your hard drive to be corrupted.

If the green light continues to flash green, the ps3 system maybe trying to write to the hard drive, shutting down or running programs. It may take longer to shut down depending on when you pressed the power button. If the green power light flashed for a very long time, you can try holding the power button down for 5 seconds, the console will beep and should turn off. Then try to restart the PS3 system.
Flashing Green, Yellow and Red:


When the power status light goes from green, to yellow, to green, then to a flashing red, this means that they may be an issue with an internal part with in the PS3 system. This may be caused by a variety of reasons and would need to be diagnosed by our support line.

When the PS3 power light flashes in this order, you can contact our Support Line for further assistance.

Solid Blue:

When the disk status light is remaining a solid blue, it means the disc is inside the PS3 system. If you wish to eject the disc, hold down the eject button for 2 seconds and the blue disc status light will flash indicating the PS3 system is attempting to eject the disc . (NB: the power indicator light will always be a solid green).

If the disc is inserted into the ps3 system, but does not show up on the xmb or will not play, this may indicate an issue with the reader- check our guide Discs are not loading in my PlayStation 3? for further troubleshooting.

Flashing Blue:


When the disc status light is flashing blue, it means a disc was just inserted into the ps3 system or a disc is trying to eject from the ps3 system. Depending on when you pressed the eject button, it may take longer for the disc to eject. (NB: the power light will always be a solid green)
If the light constantly flashes blue, it may be an issue with the disk being stuck in the system. If this happens there is no way to remove the disc yourself if you are using an orginal 60GB PlayStation.

Dog urinated on laptop


I split tea on my laptop and it works fine now.
It all depends on what components got wet and whether it was turned on at the time.
So there's a chance it will still work.

I would recommend that you don't heat it up to dry it or move it about to much, just let it dry normally. Wait till you know its perfectly dry before turning it on again too.
