Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 won't do anything

My ps3 was working just fine til one day it just stopped and my xbox 360 still works fine on my 42" plasma. It turns on but it does not have any picture or sound and the controllers don't even connect to it when it is "on" I tried resetting it as described here and it worked the first time but when i went to play it again it does not have any picture or sound again and the resetting does not work on it anymore.

SOURCE: which is the best ps3 ( 40gb) or xbox 360 elite?

For right now, i would say the 360 because it has the most games out, and even though you have been hearing about the three rings of death(which is under waranty for 2 more years) the PS3 is haveig a lot of disk drive trouble.

I get a black screen when I turn on my PS3. When I turn it on I do get the normal start up sound but the screen is black. The power cord is plugged in, the HDMI cord works (I switched 3 different cords...


Your PS3 may not be in HD mode. When you turn on your PS3 hold down the button until you hear a series of beeps. This will switch the PS3 to work with your HDMI. Now turn off and turn on the PS3 normally and you should have video.

I may be wring on the steps so check your manual or reference:

Should i play my ps3 games on my new plasma tv?


Most plasma's to this day prevent the image from being burnt into the screen. I would say yes because it makes gameplay amazing, but to be honest look at your plasma's manual and see if there are any dangers to image's being burnt. If you hook up an HDMI cable and run HD you shouldn't have a problem.

I run my computer on my 61" Plasma as well as my television, PS3, and Xbox 360 and to this day i haven't had any problems.

Hope this helps and I hope you get the chance to play on your plasma! You won't be dissapointed! please don't forget to rate, Thanks! :)

When i turn on my xbox 360 controllers they blink a green light and won't do anything...whats the problem?


Hi,
Everyone knew that Xbox 360 had it famous 3 Red light of death but Sony Ps3 had it too. They called it as Red, Yellow, Green Light of Death. Although PS3 is the new generation of cutting edge high end technology console, it can still have problems like this common one where it flashes green lights instead of working properly.

It really annoying and frustrated if you face this problem and feel lost on where you actually can start to looking into it.Keep reading of this hub and share with you some basic troubleshooting tips that may help you to solve PS3 blinking problem and get your PS3 console work again.



You actually can start to look into the PS3 light flashing problem yourself, at least you can narrow down the error or can get your console work again on those fault alarm.

What you can do:

Tips 1 - Restart your PS3 console by turn it off and on it back. This to ensure a soft rest to your PS3 memory board. This can eliminate blinking problem that cause by in-proper shout down and memory interrupted.

Tips 2 - If tips 1 not working, try to check whether all the cable are well connected to the console with the power code. Make sure those cable in good shape, none of them are loose or damaged.

Tips 3 - If above tips not help, you need to unplug all those cables connect to your console and plug them back on. This way to ensure none of the cables are not connected.

Tips 4 - This could the final tips if none of above working. You need to take the hard drive out for 10 minutes and let it cycle its memory. Then re-hook it and try it again.

Above tips able help you to eliminate those common PS3 light flashing problem, but you may ask what else if those tips not work although you try all them out?

My Ps3 freezes up during the point between games on codmw2. Works fine during the game , but when game is over , it freezes up on the final points screen and I have to turn it off from the big switch on...


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Ps3 froze


I was having the same problem. It was COD WAW causing the problems. I had to restore mine to factory defaults 2 days after I played the game but now everything has been working fine. If you can't see anything to get to factory reset, you can turn your power off on the back and then turn it back on, hold your finger on the turn on switch on the front for about 3-4 secs til you hear 2 beeps and it should come up and let you restore from there. Thats what I done and its been 2mths now and still no problems. I was on the verge of sending it in til I found this solution online. Hope it helps! BTW, i didnt do the full restore where you lose all game saves, just the easy one restore factory SETTINGS!

Ps3


Sorry to say, but I believe it is. I have never heard of anyone repairing a PS3 that has done that. Though I'm sure it is possible. What your PS3 is doing is the equivelant to the Xbox 360 red ring of death. This is a system failure. If you may have any warranty left I would call Sony ASAP!! I hope this helps. Good luck.
