I dropped my ps3 down my stairs. And now when ever I try to play it on my tv it doesn't show up on the screen. I tried disconnecting it but it doesn't work. Please help me.

Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.

If you have a HDMI cable, plug it up, if you have AV plug it in as well. If you have both settings on your TV, be sure to have them both inserted into the system. Also, make sure that you are switching your TV from HDMI to AV and vice versa.

It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 1-5.

If this doesn't work, then you have what is commonly known as the "Green light of Death."

It is when your system powers on and acts normally but no display. Your GPU (graphics chip) has cracked or become damaged and will need to be sent in to SONY. You can try a 3rd party technician, but this repair has a very very low success rate.

Good luck.

I dropped my ps3 and now it wont play it turns on but doesnt show anything on tv ? what can it be? Please help...

Playstation 3 is very sensitive to vibrations or crashes, you can read that in the manual.
high possibility that its totaly broke, you could contact sony and ask for a guarantee, they'll want the serial code at the bottom of your console so write it down and try a call. otherwise you can try to repair it yourself or buy a new one

Is it trying to download an update? If so, try downloading the update from the sony site on a pc and save it to a usb stick in a folder called UPDATE (has to be capitals) which should be in a folder called PS£ (deatils of this are on the sony site).

Then turn on the PS3 in safe mode by holding down the start button until you hear three beeps and go to option 6, system update and follow the onscreen instructions. Just this minute done this on my sons PS3

My son put a dvd into his ps3 (which he has watched ok in the past) and the ps3 now states that the disk storage has been corrupted - click ok to reset. we do that and it doesnt reset and comes up with the...

You need to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM on your ps3.
Follow this guide.


1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when it turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

PS3 Not Loading

try creating another user account and go to your settings straight away, look for resetting the whole console and select it, then it will start from square one then make your accounts again and see if it works, because some times its the hard drive needs cleaning out, or may need to be fixed, so check your instruction manual and check the hard drive if your ok with mechanics try not to break it, or another thing is that its been knocked about to much or dropped.
I hope this is some use to you

if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3.
This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.

The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.
