Movies will play, games will load the intro screen with music and still pic(such as madden 11) but when you choose to play, the screen goes black...why?


Hey there,

No promises this will work, but you can give this a try. Hold the power button on your PS3 until you hear it beep twice. This will bring you to Restore Mode. From here you will want to set it to Restore Default Settings. This will keep all your PS3 Data in-tact but restore the video, sound, and system settings to default.

It could just be that you set the Video Settings of your PS3 to 1080p when your TV can only handle 1080i.

Wont play ps3 games


try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.

PS3 games play but DVD/Blu-ray will not


Sounds like a bad laser, but you should restore the PS3 back to Factory to see what happens.

If you get the same results it's definitely the laser.

Carried out an update, but now stuck in loop


Procedure for Entering Safe mode when PS3 is caught in update loop:

When you first turn on the PS3, it will not allow you to go into Safe mode. You must prepare it for this.

link for flash drive prep:
http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/SystemUpdates/PS3/pc_update.html#update_PC


(This will not work for the drive that currently is caught in the update loop. You must take the hard drive out of the PS3 and temporarily replace it with another 2.5” SATA drive. Note: temp drive may need to be initialized… Connect drive to pc, right click on My Computer and select Manage… Then select disk Management… you will then be presented with a dialogue box that will assist in initializing the disk.. However, only initialize it… Do Not Format it!(waste of time) Once the disk is initialized disconnect it from external enclosure or shut down computer and remove disk)

From the top:

1.) Plug in PS3 and flip switch in back of PS3 to on. Red LED in front of PS3 should light up. Also, plug in Controller at this point.
2.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then a final beep and the PS3 will power off again and Red LED will be on
3.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then two beeps
4.) As soon as you hear the two beeps, hold PS button on Controller
a. You will then be presented with an options screen
i. Restart System -- leads back to update loop
ii. Restore Default Settings --
iii. Restore File System -- leads back to update loop (8002F14E)
iv. Rebuild Database --
v. Restore PS3 System --
vi. System Update -- will cause error
5.) You will then remove the temporary SATA drive from the PS3 and replace it with the hard drive that is caught in the update loo
6.) I am currently stuck attempting to Restore Default Settings and Im sure it will end in error, but i have to try all possible solutions.

Ps3 freezes at startup screen/ green red dots/lines,


Turn off the PS3 with the switch on the back, then turn back on. wait till the light is solid red then hold your finger on the start button for abount 10 seconds until you hear it beep twice.

It will then ask you to connect a controller via the usb cable and press the PS button. Once you do this it will bring up the reset menu.

Unfortunately the only way I found that solves this is a full system restore that wipes the hard drive completely.

You do however retain and data saved online such as COD stats etc and playstation store purchases with your PSN.

Hope this helps??

The only thing you can do is get it replaced or fixed, unfortunately. Take it to wherever you got it with the reciept and they should be able to either replace it or send it back to Sony to get it fixed. If you want to keep all of your data, you'll need to get it fixed - but you can copy all your saved games onto a USB device if you want to (I'd recommend doing this whatever you do, just in case something happens).
