Hi,

"When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:



• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.


• If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.


• Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.


• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."
Hope this will help...

PS3 keeps signing out. Won't let me play online. Still can use browser.


Does this happen all the time or just for today? If it's just for today and maybe a few times in the past, like all of us, then you will need to be patient and keep signing in or reset your modem to allow a new fresher connection. If you get signed out, press the PS button in the middle of the controller and sign back in swiftly and it should reconnect.

Reset your modem and run a test again:

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and choose the appropriate settings. (What's highlighted is going to be the best option, continue to hit the right button on the analog to go through the stages.)

Ps3 will not stay on


Hi,
Hopefully this will help solve your problem:
1. Press and hold down the power button located at the front of the PS3 console, until you hear a first beep, then eventually a second – before the console shuts down, then let go of the button;
2. Now press and hold the button again until you hear a first beep, then a second beep then eventually a quick double-beep, then let go of the button;
3. The TV screen should now display a six option menu, where you can select what’s required, i.e. `Restart System`, `Restore System` etc. `Reset System` should only be used after other attempts with the other options, as your game saved data may be lost. If you play Modern Warfare 2 online, then this won’t be affected as your data is saved on the Sony Server.
4. During any of the above actions, your best having your handset controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cord, which includes pressing the `P` button when required (located between `Start` and `Select`).
These actions should help solve `freeze` problems and others such as update errors etc – which restrict you starting up or playing your console.
