If it was damaged during shipping which seems to be the case on some of these then call sony and see what they will do, 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
If not you can try to replace the part yourself I have a guide to do so, incl websites to get the parts!

If not I would be more then happy to purchase the broken unit and help you locate a new/used on fairly cheap!

What is the code for a yamaha dsp -ax 620receiver codes

PS3 BD remote is Bluetooth, not infra red. Bluetooth and Infra red are two different ways of transmitting signals. They are not cross-compatible. So there's no code to allow a PS3 BD remote to operate any Infra red device becuase the PS3 BD remote does not issue IR commands.

I inserted my Friday the 13th Killer Cut bluray into my ps3 and it doesn't read it at all....i put it into my computer and it plays fine? My ps3 is all updated as well....

Please try:
  • running another game bd
  • deleting any game file data (if any)
  1. if another game bd doesn't run, you got a problem with your disk reader (you'll have to buy a new one or take the system to warranty).
  2. if another game bd runs, and deleting the files doens't work, try restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your saved game data !!!)

Play station 3 dvd remote pairing instructions.

OK I FIGURED IT OUT!!! First turn off the system(ps3) make sure that you take the batteries out of the remote. Then when you turn it back on go straight to system setting, setting accessories, setting blue tooth device. AND THEN IT WILL TELL YOU TO HOLD DOWN THE START AND ENTER BUTTON DOWN!. Don't forget to put the batteries back into the remote. It took like 3 seconds.
