Hello,

You can 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.

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

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

I wish you good luck.

Orange light on and it wont turn on


Is it an orange battery indicator? If it is, it means the AC adapter is charging the battery. Please charge the battery for 1 hour before you press the power button again.

My xbox power box is displaying the amber light and the xbox wont switch on is this related??


An orange light is illuminated on the power supply for one of two reasons. Either the console is turned off or the power supply is disconnected from the console. The orange light means that the power supply is in standby.
Even if the console is turned off, the power supply light may still be illuminated orange. This can occur if the power supply cord is not fully inserted into the power socket of the console.

When i turn my wii console off, instead of a red stand by light a orange light appears.


Orange light means Wii is still connected to the internet and is ready to download any updates from the net even if the machine is turned off.
This option is called Wiiconnect24 and you can disable it from system settings if you don't want it to be connected, then the light will turn red when you switch it off.
I think it's a good idea to leave it on myself so it doesn't make you wait while it installs updates next time you turn it on.

I was just wondering the same thing. I found something that said unplug it from the wall, remove the plugs from the wii, and let it sit for 2 minutes. Then plug it back in (to the wall, not a surge protector). It worked on mine.

Laptop wont turn on at all!


try sensing if your cpu fan is working, it is under the power switch side, you can see small exhaust slots, put your hand beside it and feel if some air is coming out when you turn on your pc.

When you turn you pc on and only orange light blinks, it means that no power was getting into it, it blinks because no electrical power is coming from your power adapter and the battery is drained. Check your power adapter cable, this is the very cause why your pc is shutting down. usually the wire from the adapter to the pc is faulty.

My wii is not working


If it's orange that means it is turned off. It turns green when you turn it on. Insert a disc, press the power button or hit eject.
