My ps3 gets hot very fast and it been doing this from the frist day i got it i want to know if this is a problem


How to fix your PS3 when it's frozen at start up

things you'll need:

* PS3
* TV
* Game Controller
* USB cord


Instructions

The first thing your going to want to know is your model number. It can be found on the back panel of the PS3 on the serial number label, and it will begin with CECH. Example - Serial: XXXXXXXXXXXX-CECHXXX -

Put your PS3 in Standby Mode.

For models: CECHA01, BO1, E01, E01MG, G01, H01, H01MG, K01, LO1, AND P01, it will have a power switch on the back. Flip it off then back on and you will have a solid red indicator light on the front.

For models: CECH-2001A and 2001B, press the power button on the front until the indicator light turns red. If all else fails unplug the power cord and plug it back in.


Time to enter Safe Mode.

Press and hold your finger over the power button on the front until you hear three beeps and the indicator light goes back to red. Then release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds the third and final beep will sound then the indicator light will return to red.)

Press and hold your finger over the power button again until you hear a quick double beep. The release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds you will hear the double beep.)

Connect controller to PS3 screen.


Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the front of your PS3 and the top of your game controller, (between the left and right bumpers). Then Press the PS button in the center of the controller.

Safe Mode options screen.


Select option number 3, (Restore File System). Then select yes to perform step.



"The hard disk's file system is corrupt and will be restored."


First press the PS button to turn the controller back on. Then press the x button and it will restore, it will then restart and your problem is fixed!

Top multimedia features are on the console of PS3 and it is also connected with PlayStation Portable. While having all the high features, PS3 is not protected from occasional freezes and one knows that. It is the most irritating time when one is enjoying the best of the gaming time when everything suddenly comes to a halt. It is rare that PS3 will freeze but they do occur sometimes and are caused by scratched console disk or overheating.

1. Overheating: When the console is kept in a stuffed room where there is not ample breathing space, then it will get overheated and too much heat on the PS3 will cause a meltdown. It can easily be remedied when the console is placed all by itself and no other electronic machine is nearby.

2. Scratches: Scratches on the disk that can cause looping inside and this usually happens at millisecond speed. The console is not actually frozen in this case. Its the time lag that gets continuously repeated at certain times. The freezing of PS3 is generally not too serious. In case of worst freezing, the console has to be taken to the Sony store from where it was brought. The fact is that the owner can only do some basic trouble-shooting for fixing the problem.

If a PS3 freezes, it has to be kept away from other electronic machines at home. Its power button has to be pushed until a beep is heard. The loose cables have to be checked and they can be pulled and plugged back in. The hard drive has to be aired out for a while and placed back in the console after a considerable time.

If this does not help then the repair guide can be consulted to try fixing the PlayStation 3. It is completely detailed and illustrated.

Briefly, this is how it is done:
- The console has to be taken apart carefully
- The CPU and GPU of the console have to be checked. A white can be seen that may be cracked and unevenly spread, it will need a cleaning.
- The console's GPU and CPU has to be cleaned using a dry paper, if a sand paper is to be used then an extremely rough one should not be used.
- The flat surface has to be cleaned and if still there is a need, Arctic Silver 5 Compound can be purchased and used. It has to be applied evenly and thinly on both surfaces.
- The surface which distributed thinly makes sure that every single gap is covered.
- The heat sink cap can be finally put back on.

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

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.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

I'm trying to add music and videos


Xbox 360 1) Insert the Music Disk into the 360.

2) A screen should appear with it showing a visualization picture and showing the tracks (songs).
If it doesn't appear, go to the dashboard scroll across to the Multimedia section and go to Music.

3) Up the top of the screen it says options like "Burn and Rip".
Choose "Rip" and it'll copy the songs from the disk onto the 360. Give it time to finish.

4) And it should say your done. And it's saved onto your 360.

To listen while playing; When you are in the game, press the xbox guide button (the X button in the middle of the controller that has the green light) and wait till that screen pops up on the side of the screen.
Then Scroll down to where it says (I think it says Music) but you'll see the "Pause, Play and Skip etc... music buttons, and choose "Select Music" and then it'll expand and take you to the music library (In your hardrive) And just choose the song.
And it'll take you back to the gamer tag picture, like before, and press the Xbox guide button and you're back to your game - while the song plays throughout.

And it wont take you away from your game.
Hope I helped ?

Playstation 3 ok, you can put music from a cd onto a ps3. heres how.
put the cd you want into the ps3 then go to music then go to audio cd. instead of x to view the tracks hit triangle and select copy. the ps3 can take songs from a cd and put it on the hard drive

you can take songs from the computer and put it on a ps3, heres how.

first, you need a flash drive (if ur not tech savvy, its a lil usb thing that holds information. make sure its a decent size ( 1gb would be best but more or less is ok). then go to my computer on the computer and you should see removable disk. click that. now drag and drop all the songs you want to move to your ps3. once ur done, take the flash drive out and put it in the ps3. go to music and select usb device, however hit triangle and hit display all and it will show you all the music files. hit triangle again and select copy multiple and get all the songs you want from the flash drive

and yes, you can download songs from the internet of a ps3, heres how

heres some of the sites i use
mp3realm.org yourmp3.net emp3world.com
find a song you like and click the song link. when you do, hover over the link and hit triangle then go to file and select save target. certain files cant be downloaded because keep in mind that it needs to be an.mp3 file for it to be directly downloaded and ready to use (and since you cant rename files on a ps3, you can always download it to a flash drive and change the file name on the pc and then put it back on the ps3)

My ps3 120gb slim, does not recognise my multimedia hard drive, it a cyclone primus 2tb.


WOW Two whole terrabytes of memory!
The reason would be the size
The PS3's subway buses (USB) only have so much bandiwdth and the Ps3 can only read so much. It would have to breakdown over 2000 gb of data into sectors to read.
It is also possible that your harddrive isn't in the right format. Connect it to a computer and format it to FAT32
Thank you for your time, Good luck and I hope this works

My ps3 wont play the game automatically when a disc is inserted. it goes to a multimedia menu when it comes on


Typically ps3s do not launch straight into the game. You do have to go through the menu and select the games portion, and then the game disc. This should launch your game. I have to do it every time I want to play a game.

    Must i get a xbox 360 or Ps3?


    Both consoles have advantages.
    The Xbox 360 has a vast array of titles and has the biggest fan base of the two. If you connect the console to the internet, you can download games and movies through Xbox Live. You can also connect your PC to your Xbox 360 and use the console as a multimedia center using Windows Media Center.

    The PS3 has a blu ray drive as standard, so you can watch blu ray movies through your PS3. DVD's are also upscaled up to 720p to improve the look of your movies. The PS3's online service is free, and allows you to download game demo's and downloadable content for games.
    The Xbox 360's disadvantages are the fact you need to pay for access to Xbox Live, roughly £40 per year, but it does guarentee a reliable online service. Also earlier and cheaper models of the Xbox do not support full HD via HDMI.
    The PS3 is very expensive and lacks quality titles. The console is also on a 10 year plan, so even though the console will outlast its rivals, it is likely to become outdated.
    If you want to watch blu ray films and play games occasionally, go for the PS3. If you want a console with a lot of titles and a reliable online service,  get the 360. Of the two I'd choose the 360, but in 2 years or so I might need to reconsider.

    You are Partially right.
    Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser inside.one is Blue and one is red and both working on 2 separate circuit but with the same coil.i do believe the blue diode is dead or defective and that`s why you are able to read dvd(regular one) but no blu ray dvd or ps3 games.Try to clean your lens or replace your laser and you will resolve your problem
