No sound coming from ps3


Make sure the system volume is up, the TV isn't muted, and the sound cables are completely in their sockets on the TV. If none of that works, the sound card may not have its drivers, or is bad.

SYSTEM DOESN'T RECOGNIZE CONTROLS HOW DO I FIX


I'm guessing the issue is that the PS3 isn't responding to your controller input.

Ensure that the PS3 controller is actually on. You can turn on the controller by pressing the Playstation button in the center of the controller. There will be a red light on top of the controller indicating that it is on.

If no light shows up, it's possible that the controller simply has dead batteries. Grab your controller charge cable (should have been included with controller, looks like this) and connect the controller to the PS3 while the console is on. Give it a few minutes, then press the center Playstation button again and see if it responds.

It's also possible that the controller just isn't synced to your PS3. Again, grab the charge cable and connect it to your PS3 while it's on. Then press the Playstation button while the controller is connected. It should sync it to the PS3.

If none of that is working for you, there may be an issue with the controller itself. The easiest fix it to reset the controller. There should be a tiny button in a hole on the back of the controller. Just press it (you'll need a paperclip or something to do it) and the controller will reset. I believe you'll have to re-sync the controller (using the cable again).

You should also try syncing other controllers to your PS3 to make sure that the issue isn't with the PS3 itself (which would be awful; I've never heard a PS3 breaking like that but I suppose there is always a first). If other controllers work then either your controller's battery is dead or the controller is actually broken. I don't think Sony repairs/replaces controllers so you may have to buy a new one.

It may be worthwhile to checkout their support page first, to see if anything helps before shelling out 50$ for a controller:

Sony Support
Sony Repair
Amazon - PS3 Controllers (I recommend Silver; it's ****).

Hope it all works out!

I just bought a Tomee SX-3 PlayStation 3 controller and when i plug in the wireless USB part and turn on the power switch on the controller it doesn't seem to sync or find the controller? do you have...


According to a comment at Amazon "since firmware 3.5 Sony has blocked 3rd party USB accessories so this no longer works with a PS3. This isn't the companies fault, just be aware it no longer works on the PS3" http://www.amazon.com/PS3-SX-3-Wireless-Controller-Playstation-3/dp/B0031BWM6A

Cd will not go in the ps3 its an old model


First make sure everything is plugged in correctly and that the power is on. Afterwards, make sure there isn't another disc in the drive by pressing the eject button. If there isn't anything in there and power is on and it still will not accept discs, then your playstation 3 needs servicing. Call Sony Customer Service.

My ps3 isn playing ps2 games but not ps3 or dvd's what is wrong what my ps3


Welcome to Fixya

Try the troubleshooting procedure below:

Step 1 - Turn off the playstation 3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.

Step 2 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the playstation 3 is powering on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is red).

Step 3 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the playstation 3 to power on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At this point release the power button. if you succeeded in activating the safe mode, you will see a message on the screen saying 'connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button.

Step 4 - Perform the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one option works, do not continue onto the other options.

Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Rebuild Data Base
Restore PS3 System etc...
