Hello folks,
Please try the following and see if it helps:

  • Unplug the PS3 and let it sit for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • After letting it sit, plug it back in and let some electricity get to the battery inside the system.
  • Please wait 3-5 minutes, then turn it on.
Good luck and take care,
Chimpster
