You are experiencing problems with the power supply.

This can be a free repair or an expensive one depending on how you fix it.

If you have warranty, CALL SONY! They will help you out.

If not, you can try replacing the PSU (power supply unit) in your Playstation 3. This is not very hard to do but takes some skill.

I just finished fixing mine, took about 3 hours to take apart, fix and put back together.

You can find the full 300 page guide I used to repair my PS3 at <a rel='nofollow' href="http://fixaps3.info">this site</a> its the only site I can find that does not want $15

My ps3 will no longer play ps3 games


If you are able to play Playstation 2 games, but not PS3 games then that means the blu ray laser has went bad. The lasers are a 2 part laser, The PS2 games take a lot less power to read than the blu ray or PS3 games, that is why you can still play PS2 games but not PS3s.
The lasers are a little bit pricy for these units, $60-$80 depending on which model laser is in your unit.
I recommend that you have a professional install the new laser in your unit because of the sensitive nature of the internal electronics.
One thing you don't want to do is damage the original blu ray drive mother board, the blu ray drive has Firmware on it that has to match the motherboard of the Ps3 unit or it will not play anything at all.
If you want me to replace the laser for you I can do that, just contact me and we can talk about it

My dad cant hook mine up for some reason


Ok

First, Turn your T.V. on and go to the input mode on the t.v.

Second, there should be two cords in the back of your playstation3.
The power cord and the input cord. These are the two basic cords to turn your playstation on.

Once you have them plugged in, on the back of your playstation 3 there should be a power switch right above the power cord. Click it on so that the I is down and the O is up. In the front of your Playstation, a red light will appear indicating that the Playstation is ready to be turned on. Tap the red light until it turns green ( this should only be tapped once) When it is green the system will go to the start-up menu and enjoy your Playstation 3
