My PS3 isn't working. I put in Madden 2011 and it just shows a blue and green light in the front of the console but nothing comes up on my tv screen. What could this issue be?


Your video settings may be scrambled. Have you recently tried using different cables?

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 1-5. If you do not see this menu, chances are, your motherboard has gone bad and will need to be sent in for service.

Be sure to try using HDMI cables and AV (component) cables.

I can't play with my partner wiyh the second controller I bought. How to connect so I can with my partner? Second one: I'm struggling to connect to internet. It keeps on sayinf timed out when I search?...


You don't say which console you are using. You need to reset second controller so the console can locate it.
If xbox 360 there is a very small round button on back edge of controller. You need to press this button and then also press the small round button on the front of the console. The lights will start flashing and after a few seconds the console should recognise second controller and you will have 2 green light lit up in the circle round the consoles power button.
If PS3 you need to press reset button inside a small hole on back of controller. YUou need to use a paper clip or something that will fit inside the hole. You may have to plug the controller into the PS3 using the USB cable and press PS button on the controller too.

Play station three will not turn on on then off when power button is pushed.


First, old PS3 or new slim PS3?

The old models have a power switch on the back that must be on. You'll know its on if you have a red light on the front of your console.

To turn the PS3 on, press the power button. A light should turn green, and you're good to go.

To turn off the older PS3's, you must hold the power switch down for several seconds. For the new slim model, just press the button quickly.

Send it in for service at a Sony playstation service center.
It is possible you have a hard drive problem, but you will basically need to buy a hard drive and install it to find out.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony
