First try this if it does not work try doing my way of fixing it<br /><br />This is what the PlayStation Forum says:<br />1. Turn off <span>Playstation®3</span>.<br />2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.<br />3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps<br />4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.<br />5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button<br />6. The Recovery menu will pop up.<br /><br />The current Recovery Menu supports:<br />• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 <span>System.<br />• Restore</span> Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.<br />• Restore <span>File</span> System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.<br />• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.<br />• Restore <span>PS3</span> System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.<br />• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System<br /><br />MY WAY<br /><br />Sign in<br /><br />Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option)<br /><br /><br />go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies<br /><br />check the disc if it has fingerprints or scratches if it does then thats your problem<br /><br />if you have the 60GB sos mate they have alot of problems<br /><br />or maybe try this put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it then switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it then put it back on then the fan test should be working this may cool it down<br /><br />it may be overheating<br />if this problem still continues go out and buy a inter cooler from a shop<br /><br />if it STILL CARRIES ON phone up sony
You should check to make sure the disc is in good shape and not covered by any deep scratches or scum. If the disc is shot then there is not much you can do to fix the slowdown sadly, PS2's are currently selling for incredibly low prices so the worst case scenario would set you back around 50 dollars.
Ok for the internet problems try connecting it directly to your internet modem without the router and also try connecting it with the wireless option of the ps3, if none of those options works, your ps3 network card is pretty much fried. About the disc making funny noise you might want to first if you know nothing about ps3 take it to a repair store after the diagnostic of the funny noises the next symptom you are going to get is problems reading bluray discs and after that you will probably have to replace the WHOLE DRIVE piece or if you are lucky just the PS3 lens. here are links for more info about prices:
you need to plug the usb cord in to the ps3 and the controller. then press the ps button then it should work. if it does not then keep it plugged in and press the small reset button with a pin on the back of the controller and then repeat the first step.
hi dont worry sony are having down time at the moment its not a problem with your ps3 so dont try changing any settings this problem is world wide just give it time and it will sort itself out, i have answered loads of these problems with the ps3 in the last 24 hours so just give it time and you should have no problems logging in again
Try this first:
Hold down the eject button for 10 - 15 seconds. this is supposed to work as a manual eject for the PS3.
If that does not work, Try Reformatting the PS3 hard drive, youll find the option under settings in the PS3 menu
That is just so fucked ! I really would advice you to go back to the shop probably its packaged wrong.... Tell your son that the packagers are jerks :) ! I had a ps3 guitar and it worked , at the shop they will give it back directly. Good Luck!
I think you need to call sony I know online there have been a few people who say they know how but out of the 400+units I have fixed I have never had one of these!
TAKE IT BACK TO THE PAWN AND TELL THEM THEY SOLD YOU A **** UNIT!
