Internet Connection Difficulties

My Playstation 3 Is In Perfectly Good Condition, And Allows Games To Be Played Without Problems. Yet, When You Plug In The Internet Connection, The PS3 Will Not Connect To The Internet. The Light Is Flashing At The Back Of The Console, Proving The Internet Connection Works, Yet The IP Address "Times Out" After Trying To Configure The Settings.

If your IP address times out trying using the same IP address information you computer uses (if possible) and input it manually. that worked for me.

My ps3 wont let me play most games online. i have it hooked up to my house internet. when i click on the online mode for modern warfare 2, it says loading to match making server but stays on that forever....


sometimes if you are playing COD4 then switch a game to MOD WAR 2, i have had the same problem, to solve it just take out the router wire and let it reset this should solve the problem.

Wont play games or dvds


I take it that you have performed the initial set of up the PS3 system 1 If the DVD/Games do not match the region code set in the system it can not be played. 2 When out putting DVD content in SD resolution, only discs recorded in PAL standard can be played. Remove the parental control restriction by increasing the viewer's age. 3 Games with Playstation 3 format software can only be played. Please check this aspect.

Playstation 3 times out when going online.I haven't played for about a month,now cannot get internet access.Nothing has changes on my system.Please help.


you may just need to redo the internet connection settings cause ps3 hold that info. Like if you got a new router or changed service providers the ps3 will still have the info from the old router. just got through settings -->network settings and reconnect to your router and see if that fixes.

most of the time even if you havent replaced a router or changed a service provider this is caused by a change in dns. your provider may have done it and that will cause wep to time out. and some games work online.

Some games have problems being played on my psp


This is because you use a very low firmware.Upgrade it to 5.50M33-3 or to 5.03M33-3.This should fix it.

Hey mygz43,

Unfortunately, there is no direct way to convert PS1 games over to your PSP without altering the system’s firmware and possibly violating several end-user license agreements in the process.

Sony does however, support a function of the PSP called "remote play" that allows you to play content that is currently loaded into a Playstation 3 you own over a WLAN, home network or via internet access. Typically this means that you would need to physically have a PS1 disc in the PS3 in order to play it, though content that is stored on the PS3's hard drive can also be played as well. Please remember though that not all PS3 models are backwards compatible to the PS1, and some titles may encounter graphical glitches or playback errors.

If you would like more information on this function, I would strongly suggest checking out Sony's support page for further details and step-by-step instructions:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
