Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I have a PS3 and the other day after a movie was over the system acted kinda funny. The screen went blank and all the lights on the remote started flashing. I turned the system off and then back on. It now does not recognize if their is a disk (game/movie) in the unit. I have tried unplugging the console for several minutes and plugging it back in hoping it would reset, but no luck. Any advice?

Hello,

Follow the procedure below to fix the problem on your ps3,

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System.

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

Take care.

I have a HTC 6800 that started acting funny about a week ago. At first the screen got lines across it when I would open the keyboard, then after a couple of days the srceen just froze when the keyboard was...


I had this same problem, there is a thin line of wires connecting the bottom half and top half of the sliders, after awhile it just plain wears out and will generally crack, without these wire anything on the front of your phone will no longer work. The screen is black but stil lights up a little bit and occasionally the buttons light up but its pretty much toast I'm sorry to say. I upgraded to a HTC Touch Pro 2 and am happier than ever!

Battery dead , bought new battery , still didnnt start. lights kinda acting funny too


Its possible you bought a bad battery, make sure your connections are good at the battery and starter. Make sure the battery is grounded. With the lights acting funny sounds like you have a bad ground.

Ps3 from wavy screen to blank screen at start up.


Quick call and its fixed.... Whilst the PS3 is in stand by (red light on) press and hold the on button. Wait until it peeps slowly three times then take the finger off the button. This opens up a factory reset. Work from the top down and see which one fixes your PS3. For me it was a full reset, but at least it keeps your updgrades. :o(

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds


I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!
