Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 problems I have a PS3, and this actually my 2nd 60gig version. I don't want to have to get a third. But the I'm having the same reoccurring problem with the Blu-ray drive. I load the disc in and the blue light will flash for about 6 sec and then remain off. The Playstation wont even recognize the disc. It happened right after watching a dvd. I took the movie out and decided to play a game, and this happens. Every disc i tried does this, there are no scratches on the discs, the PS3 is in a cool setting dust free, I dust and clean it every day. Any info and help on this would be great fully appreciated.

How do I get my PS3 to work over hdmi?

Try swapping out HDMI cable. The version of cable. (1.2, 1.4 etc ) might be too old/faulty for PS3.

If your Tv is HD ready and not Full HD lower the video quality in the PS3 settings

Ps3 60gig

Have you tried contacting Sony Support about this yet? This could be a variety of things. Does it happen on just one game or all and does it happen with DVDs and CDs too?

Our 2006 Ford Focus 1.6 petrol is now on its third new coil (and plugs renewed once) This seems to fix the misfiring issue for a while however eventually the problem reoccurs and tice the car has cut out...

I assume you have a coil pack like the US version.

Make sure the wiring connector is ok and the leads going into it are not loose or corrded inside the insulation. The seconday plug wires should have di-electric grease on them to prevent high voltage issues. Finally, the coils can actually take out the drivers in your engine computer.

My gigaware controller is not connecting, what do i do?

If your PS3 version is 3.5 or higher, it will not work. I just recently replied to a similar post about this problem. If you have upgraded to version 3.5 or higher, it overwrites third-party firmware that gigaware controllers use. Making the controller useless. I prefer to get controllers that are actually made by Sony themselves, not ones from gigaware etc.

Can you still convert a ps3 to play ps2 games

Hi the only one that can play ps2 games is the 60gig version the others are not backwards compatable and know software will get it doing this, you will do more harm than good messing with it as you would need parts off a 60gig version and also an updated firmware doing this will ban you from the ps3 site and can corrupt any data on your hardrive and can cause fatal error with your ps3

No disc drive

This is a very common problem.

It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

You can buy these online at may online stores or eBay.

PS3 60 GIG

the working motherboards for 60 gb version are hard to find. If you still have warranty you can send it in for repairs (if not I think it will cost 150 dollars to have it fixed).
