Sadly there isn't much the average user can do to fix this problem.

It's hardware related. You can try powering on the system with the hard drive removed, but it's VERY rare that will solve your problem.

Check out this guide here and this one here.

Those are DIY guides but if you're not up for the challenge I would highly recommend getting the machine fixed direct through Sony.

You can contact them @ 1-800-345-SONY.

They charge a flat 150 rate for all repairs.

Best of luck!

Hi i get an error code of 8001050f when i go to play my video games can you tell me how to fix it so i can play my games


go to the play stations web site to find out what the code means.

if your ps3 has a message of trophy registration error sony will say you need to turn in your ps3 for service this is not true i fixed mine by saving my game data on a thumbstick then deleted the game save data shut off my ps3 then turned the main power (the switch in the back) off for a few minutes to allow the power to dissipate. Then i restarted the ps3 copied my game save data back and my COD modern warfare 2 played like a champ!
i did lose all of my trophies but the game saved data allowed for 12 percent of them to come back apon completing one special op mission.

Playing call of duty modern warfare 2 and in the midle of online play it just shuts off now i turn it on the green light comes on then turns to amber then back to red whats the deal.


Yep, this is the red light error and it is caused by overheating on the main chips - you can stop this by using a good repair guide or by sending it in for a fix.

I never had problems playing cod modern warfare 2 till I downloaded the patch 1.09. My Ps3 gets stuck mid game. What can I do?


I need help too, my when i turn on the Ps3, it runs normally, but the system doesn't acknowledge there is a disc in it. When i eject the disc and put it back in, it reads and i start it up, but about 30 seconds into start up, the game freezes. I already reset the system & recovered memory. Any suggestions?

your ps3 could be in the process of breaking i got the ylod just last night your warranty has expired you could just run your ps3 untill it breaks then open it up and try to repair it but thats a tricky thing to do. and dont leave games in it incase it breaks they will be trapped inside, my modern warfare 2 is stuck in mine -.-

I cant get my game to eject from my PS3


i get same problem, this should work:
turn the main switch off at the back, then hold the eject button then turn on the switch while still holding the eject button. fan should go at max speed then it should die down after 20 secs.
