Ps3 wont display on the tv!!


Follow these steps to resolve your problem:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release. This should reset the video settings.

4. Wait a few seconds, and the Play Station 3 (PS3) logo should appear.

If this does not resolve the problem, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button on the front until the Play Station 3 beeps and then turns off again. This should reset the video for you and you can turn it back on after this.

Cant connect my cicket broadband modem to my ps3


it will work better if you have a router.

but is ok, connect the modem to your ps3, restart the modem, and after all the lights are on about a munite later turn ps3 on and run the connection wizard. then it will work. but after you are done repeat the same steps to use it on pc. (that;s way i say it is good to have a router)

The ps3 turns on and gets to the "sony entertainment" screen and stays there dosnt load up the profile screen etc how do I fix this?


It sounds like your hard drive is crashing...just like a computer does. Try to find a friend with another PS3 and try to put your hard drive in their machine. If your hard drive is bad it wont boot up on their machine either.

Blue wavy line but no profiles to select


Alright mate, Had the same problem as you and my ps3 is up and running now. What you need to do are the following steps:
1. turn on the ps3 so it is in stanby i.e. the red light is on. 2. push and hold down on the red button for as long as it takes to turn the ps3 back off on to standby, you should hear a beep. 3. when it goes back to standby do the same thing again, and this time you will hear one beep (when you pressed it) and two more beeps and it will go back to standby 4. when it is back in standby again, push and hold down the button again, you'll hear the first beep, then three more beeps, and it will go back to standby. 5. do the same again, however when it turns on this time, if done correctly, it should say connect the controller using a usb cable. do this and turn it on. 6. Go through everything it says on screen, 6 options should eventually appear, for me, option 4 did the trick, but i heard option 3 works too, as the other ones do too i presume. 7. the final part is that it will ask you to restore the hard drive etc... just keep pressing the ok button.
if all fails, then phone this number (sony) 0818 365 065. glad to help. let me know.... David.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony
