How do i turn my ps3 control pad on


First check batteries - charging level and if they are plugged in correctly.

After you manage to turn on the controller, you have to connect it with a mini usb cable to the console in order for it to Sync.

Hope it helps.

Certainlyit's a problem with your blu-ray reader and, if it's notcovered by warranty, unfortunatelly you will need to buy a new one (youcan find cheap ones in eBay =])
Please, try the following:
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
if this doesn't work ,contactSony support centre for possible hardware issues checking.

Want to copy music from my ps3 to device such as mp3 p.c or cd

You can only copy to a MP3
but to do that you need to connect it to the ps3 with the usb cord
and hopefully it can read it if it does then select all the music you want to transfer then select the "USB device" it should say then it should all be on there

how many gigs is your PS3 and are you using a offical PS3 usb plug and is your controller a real PS3 Sony controller or one of those mad catz controller. If it is not the USB plug that came with the PS3 that could be one problem, if its not a real Sony PS3 controller that could be one and if your PS3 is less than 60gig dont play or watch any thing on it when you plug in the controller
