Have you tried using the PS3 recovery menu. If you are not sure what this is, press and hold the power button. If the console is on it should beep once, then once again then turn off. Release the power button and then hold it again. The console will turn on, keep your finger on the button, it will beep once then beep two times quite quickly, release your finger as soon as you hear two beeps. This will now enter recovery mode. You have several options, usually restore file system or PS3 software works for most problems.

Hope this helps

If its a bluetooth device, meaning came with adapter plug in adapter to a usb slot of the PS3 then go to manage blue tooth device inside the settings of your PS3.

My ps3 shuts down after two minutes. It won't turn on when I press the ps button on my controller. I don't get a blue light at all, and when I do turn it on I get a message that says it was turned off...

when that message appears press the PS button on your controller and your controller will turn on, follow the steps on the screen after shutting it down it should be back to normal, all you have to do is hold the O/I button for 2 seconds, it will turn off after that press the PS buton on your controller and it will turn back on

Will not play games or dvds- menu screen will not come up the screen just shows the red wavy lines not the blue like it is suppose to

1- Disconnect the PS3 from the internet.
2- Turn the standby switch off so the red light turns off too, then you turn the system back on
3- Then place your finger on the power button for a total of 4 beeps to access the recovery menu. It might not work on the first attempt but it will on the second.
4- The display will instruct you to connect your controller to the PS3 and press the enter button. A list of menus will appear on your display. The choices are as follows: Restart System, Restore Default Settings, Restore File System, Rebuild data base, Restore PS3
5- Select Restore Default Settings.

My controller for my ps3 will not synch with my ps3.

Okay umm the PS3 has to register the PS3 controller to work. So the controller you got from the PS3 box you need to use that Controller to register the other Controller just go to Options go down to Bluetooth Devices and go to Register a BlueTooth Device and follow everything there.
