If you are using a third party power source, that's probably the problem.

My playstation freezes up and the screen becomes pixely after about 5 minutes of use. Will not immediately restart but when turned off for a while it will restart again and then turn off after 5 minutes of...


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their untill you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.

It only stays on for ten minutes in a game:(


Does the system shut off afterwards? I would insert a game and in 5-10 minutes, the system would turn off and the red light would blink a bit. If that's the case, then it's a hardware failure. You'll most likely have to ship it in to repair it. Unless you can do it yourself.

I turn on my playstation 3 and the screen is black I put in a disk and a disk flashes in upper right corner nothing happens


HI. try using a cleaning disk to wake the laser. if this dose not produce positive results, this will confirm a more serious issue that concerns the hard disk. try unplugging the system for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes are up, power the Ps3 up once more. If the error persist, call Sony for a repair ticket. the hard disk will need to be replaced.

Power button failure


  • Power Light Shuts Off
    If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair

    Analog stick and d pad on psp


    First of all DONT PUT YOUR UNIT ON THE FRIG. you have a contact problem. You need to replace the rubber contact on your D-Pad and Stick. Or just clean it inside if you can open it.
