My playstation will not turn on ive tryd to use all the power points in my house and still not working can you pls help (ive left it unpluged all night and still not working when i turn it on)

hello. the most probable cause for a ps3 not turning on is broken power supply. my advice is to bring to your nearest sony service center. especially if your console is still under warranty. fixing it yourself might void the warranty. but if you still want to do it yourself buy yourself a power supply that is compatible with your console (40GB ps3=40GB ps3 power supply) here a link on how to open your ps3 but remember, do this at your own risk. still the best way is to bring it to a service center. hope this helps

Cannot open the battery compartment on my suunto x6 without breaking it....any ideas?

  • Turn the Suunto over to view the backside. Insert the quarter in the coin slot located on the battery compartment cover. Turn the coin counterclockwise to the "Open" position marked on the back of the case.
  • Remove the battery compartment cover. Remove the old battery from the battery compartment. Make sure the o-ring and all surfaces are clean, dry and not damaged. Do not stretch the o-ring!
  • Place the new battery into the battery compartment (negative side down, positive side up). Make sure the o-ring is in its place, as to keep the Suunto waterproof. Place the battery compartment cover back onto the backside of the watch.
  • Insert the quarter back into the coin slot and turn the coin clockwise to the "Close" position marked on the back of the case.

  • If this doesnt work take to a jeweler who has tools.

    It won't display games that are inserted

    the laser used to read the discs is fried, you need to order a new one from ebay and replace it, alot of the older ps3's have the issue, ive gone through 3 myself in the last few years since ps3 came out. its an easy job to do a few small screws to open playstation and just simply remove old laser unit and replace with new one.

    What is the case when a ps3 shuts off in the middle of a game and wont turn back on

    if the power indicator was flashing red and green probably means it was overheating. if thats the case it either fried its self or turned its self off. let it rest for an hour then try and turn it back on if it doesnt turn on its probably fried

    When I turn on my ps3 it turns off on its own a second later why is that?

    Most devices that behave in this manner do so for their own protection. Computers do it when their power supply is faulty, and it would rather turn itself off than risk frying everything inside.

    I wouldn't risk cracking open such a beautiful machine on my own. If your outlet is properly grounded, and there are no loose connections, I would head right for a professional.

    Rock band 2 for ps2 not working right

    We had the same problem on a PS2 (thin) that is several years old. We tried exchanging the disk - same problem. We have a lot invested in the PS2 system and just bought several new games for it for Xmas so we decided to buy a new PS2 and see what happened. The Rock Band game works perfectly in the new PS2 with no issues.

    I have a playstation 3--all the icons for old games ive played come up on screen ,but when i put in a disc it will not play it. i go to video and it doesnt recogonise ive even put in a disc.

    Your laser has probably gone bad. I see this at least once a day in my store. Either over time it just stopped working, or you have shut it off by flipping the switch in the back. Doing so will fry the laser. You will need to replace the laser. If your under warranty, (Which I'm assuming your not considering your posting on here), send it in to Sony. If not, check your local game stores to see if they do console repairs.
