Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

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.

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

My ps3 is coming up with a red screen and saying a serious error has occurred. Contact technical support for assistance. The last time i played was last night fifa 10 everything was fine turned it this...


Hello kelsbels1982

The exact cause of the RSOD (Red Screen Of Death) is not exactly known. Sony acknowledges it is a problem, and will repair or exchange your PS3 unit. Whether or not it will cost you anything depends on if your PS3 is still under warranty.

Sorry there's not an immediate solution to your problem.

When i try to play my PS3 games the system tells me the trouphys cant install so now i cant play any games


This happens when the PS3 Network is under going maintence, it happens atleast once a month. Its not your PS3, just give it sometime and should come back up on its own. Possibly after a update as well.

I dont know how to fix ps3 error 8001050f.


Hi,

You cannot fix this yourself - however do not worry as there is a widespread issue occurring right across the board at this very moment with the PSN Network. Some PS3 Fat consoles are not synchronising properly due to an internal clock error and this is causing this error to display.

Sony are aware of the problem and say they will have it resolved within 24 hours.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

If the solution helps, please leave a vote for it. Many thanks.
