I left it running and the lights went off but is still froze up and I cant turn it off without unplugging it


Try resetting the default settings:

Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5


Good luck

My screen is frozen in updates. It tells me to press ps button to use my controller. What is this?


Its the very middle button on your playstation remote. If its saying press the ps3 button on your control its possible your ps3 is not frozen but your ps3 remote has just turned off..

Press the very centre button and check the lights on the top of the joypad. Are any lights lit solid? Once the light comes on solid the controller is active. If these do not light youll need to charge your ps3 remote with the usb cable that came with the ps3.

Also if your ps3 remote is lit for number 2, hold down the ps button, very middle for about 5seconds. Should have an option for reassign controllers, select that and put your controller to number 1.

Hope this helps

My ps3 controllers are not connecting with my system


connect your controllers to the USB cable the playstation brings in the box, once connected press the PS button on the controller (middle round button) all the lights on the controller will go on (4) then wait for aprox. 10secs. If the lights go off, pres the PS button on the controller again it should now be connected, let it charge or disconnect the cable it should be working fine :)
