Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D

Do you have the red light of death I wonder??? What happens when you switch on your ps3. Does the green light come on, then beep at you and then does it go back to the red light? If so your ps3 is knackered!

The yellow light keeps coming on when powered up


This is due to your fan inside your ps3. It has failed, or is failing and is causing a system failure. Unfortunatly it cannot be fixed. it will need to be replaced.
Contact sony or your insurance company
Hope this helped you, have a great day!

PS3 turned off on its on, now won't turn back on


Hello,

"When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:



• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.


• If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.


• Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.


• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."
Hope this will help...

Put in a dvd and it just shut off. Will not power


What happens when you try and turn it back on? Nothing? or does it give you any kind of lights?

If you get what looks like a yellow light and then you hear 3 beeps and it shuts back off then you have what they call the "yellow light of death". You can send it back to sony if you still have a warranty. If not you can have them fix it for $150. Or you can try fixing it yourself. There's youtube videos on how to do that.

I can help you get back your dvd. Turn off the power switch in the back. Now that the PS3 is off hold down the eject button. While keeping that held down turn the power button back on. You then should hear the fan start to get really loud (that means it's working). Soon after... the dvd should pop out and there you have it.

Hope that helps.

Black screen


Switch the machine off and back on again using the switch on the back. Turn the system on and keep your finger on the power button until it beeps a second time; this should bring you back into the XMB.
