By not power up do you mean no lights and sound when you turn it on or it comes on and flashes different lights and then shuts off???

with the first one its mostly a problem with your power supply. if you know how you can check/replace the power supply. and if you go this route while you have your system open check for damaged wires or wires that are loose. if after you do this you may have more serious problem where you may want to send it off to get it repaired professionally. *NOTE* if you break the warranty sticker while opening it sony may nor repair your ps3.

with the second problem you may need to reflow *********** board. it is very technical but is doable. one caution though from what i read and hear this fix is not permanent. it could last as short as few days to as long as few months. you can check youtube for "how to take apart ps3" and "how to reflow ps3 motherboard" or as is more commonly know "how to replow YLOD board"

if its still warranty its just easier and cheaper to send it off to sony to get it fixed.

My dad cant hook mine up for some reason


Ok

First, Turn your T.V. on and go to the input mode on the t.v.

Second, there should be two cords in the back of your playstation3.
The power cord and the input cord. These are the two basic cords to turn your playstation on.

Once you have them plugged in, on the back of your playstation 3 there should be a power switch right above the power cord. Click it on so that the I is down and the O is up. In the front of your Playstation, a red light will appear indicating that the Playstation is ready to be turned on. Tap the red light until it turns green ( this should only be tapped once) When it is green the system will go to the start-up menu and enjoy your Playstation 3

Playstation3 wont turn on red flashing light then a double beep then turn off


Unplug the power cable from the back of the PS3, wait around 30 minutes...this will allow the unit to cool down. Plug the cable back in and try to boot the unit again. If you still have a red light, call PlayStation. If you're still under warranty, they'll send you a new unit at no cost to you. The problem may be the Hard Disk. This happened to me and PlayStation was very easy to deal with.

My playstation 3 wont turn on


if there is not even a red light that means that the power supply is gone. find a working one of ebay and install it yourself if your warrantu is expired.

Vidoe output is funky


Straight from Playstation3.com Support/troubleshooting section:

"
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution."
