Why is facebook not working properly on my PS3 system when it used to weeks ago ?

I'll tell you why. As I have stated several times, the PS3 is weak as a computer, at best. It is not designed to be updated like regular PC's. FaceBook runs flash objects, and when new flash players are required to view these objects, the PS3 can't keep up! Simply because Sony will not let you update the Flash player on the PS3. Sometimes it works, most of the time, it don't. I recomend never using a PS3 for any website you might visit, including Face Book.

Poor reception on bell 9242 receiver

Hi: I had same problem, but even worse: only 55 to 65% on Nimiq 82, and 65 to 75% on 91, same on both tuners.
Happened all of a sudden about 10 days ago with several channels going in and out (mostly out). Opened it up today and discovered 3 swollen electrolytic capacitors on the 1.8 volt power supply lines near tuner section on main board -- checked with scope and there was more than 600 mV of ripple from the switching p.s.! Replaced caps which fixed the ripple problem, and now I have 95 to 100% signal strength on both tuners and satellites (same as my other receivers).
If you discover the same thing, make sure you replace the defective caps with good, low ESR types. Main one near the regulator (C338) is 1500 uF 6.3V (I used 1500 uF 16 v to replace), then 2 other 820 uF 6.3V (C282 and C286) where I used 470 uF 16 V to replace as this was the closest I had in my inventory -- but works fine. You can replace these by just removing the top cover, and without removing the main board, simply snip off the old caps as close to the body as possible, then carefully solder the new caps to the snipped wire leads/solder pads on the component side of the board.

I can get my playstation network online with my hughes net HN9000 modem but it wont join any games.Is there anything you can do to get to play online with a ps3?

You may have a weak internet connection or the playstation network/ game servers may be down. Make sure you have updated your ps3 to rule out that possiblity. You may want to try going to settings>network settings> internet connection test. If you have a weak signal strength, you may want to try moving the modem closer/ point it closer to the ps3. My download speed shows 2.1Mbps and upload 647kbps which is fairly average and don't usually have a problem. I find that sometimes I cannot connect due to the time of day (too many users onlie at the same time in your area may slow down your internet speed), for this reason I always have more luck playing later at night or earlier in the morning which may or may not be an option for you. Hope this helps!

My ps3 keeps losing playstation network and sometimes can't find a network even though it's showing wi-fi at 100% signal strength.

What you should do is you should buy an Ethernet cable from a shop a shop like staples. Basically what this is is that it is a wire that you have to connect from you console to your modem, which will give you good internet connection and will hopefully work.

Taking very long to download patches and updates to my ps3 through my wireless internet. My internet signal strength says about 77-80 percent strength


The speed of your Ps3's download solely depends on your internet speed. If in fact your speed is 77-80%, then the downloads and updates tend to be slower than if your internet speed was 100%. To fix this, attempt to move either your ps3 or your wireless router closer together. This should increase the signal strength and allow faster downloads. Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.

The signal strength on the ps3 is very low yet my computer has 100%. Why?

Hi. If there are no walls or any kind of interference that is blocking the router to send wireless signal to your PS3 then this could be a wireless adapter problem on your PS3. By the way, is the PS3 sits beside the router?
