Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

My PS3 keeps losing its signal between console and controller (it normally takes about 30mins) but either way it loses the signal and the only way to sort it out is to turn the PS3 off at the socket and restart it. The same happend with my Sony blue tooth remote controller - it works fine at first but half way through a movie the controller stops working completely. Again the only way to rectify the problem is to restart the PS3. I have tried everything but formatting and restarting the system (I do not want to lose my game data). I am beginning to think that the PS3 is broken as the controllers both show full charge even when they have lost the connection... If I have to take it back is there any way to save the game data???

I've had the same problem before, i believe what you have to do is.. recalibrate the controller, that helped, but i don't know if it'll work for you, now i don't have a bluetooth, so i couldn't help you with that.. also, it would help for you to turn off the controller during the movie.. or not interacting with the system as far as playing games..

Wireless keeps losing disconnecting my controller. I'll be using it and every 30 secs it loses signal then reconnects..

If you have something that uses certain frequencies (microwaves do this A LOT), it can interfere with the signal to the xbox. Another reason that may cause this is something is blocking the Infra red sensor on the xbox itself, make sure you have a clear view from the controller to the 360.

I turned on the console, but I can not see anything on the tv. Everything is connected in the same place.

Recheck all connections and then try safe mode. SAFE MODE hold finger on the on/off sensor keep your finger their until your machine turns off, take your finger off then place it back on the on/off sensor keep it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps and then take your finger off. Select Restore PS3 system. NOTE: you will lose all saved game data, music, photos etc. except online trophies, ranking, etc.... Good luck!

My ps3 keeps falling offline while im gaming wirelessly i have a brand new dual band dlink

Is it too far from the PS3? If so it might lose signal this way. Another reason might be your using too much data at once. Perhaps someone is also using the internet at the same time.

My ps3 keeps losing playstation network and sometimes can't find a network even though it's showing wi-fi at 100% signal strength.

What you should do is you should buy an Ethernet cable from a shop a shop like staples. Basically what this is is that it is a wire that you have to connect from you console to your modem, which will give you good internet connection and will hopefully work.

My PS3 has started to lose TV signal after 5 to 10 mins of playing a game. I am using HDMI cable in to a Samsung HD TV. This does not happen on all games but on most games.

The PS3 mustt be checked with another Tv to confirm the issue.
It is possible that the PS3 by itself can be faulty , If so you must refer to the Sony service.
if however as you mentioned on some games, it must be confirmed if the software by itself is faulty.
So take this cross check before we can conclude.

Keep losing connection with controller and console

try getting new batteries if you have a rechargeable battery pack plug in the charger then dissconnect. If this doesn't work it could be two things either your controller or the 360 cant sent out wireless signals for yor 360. To fix this try a different controller or send it in if you still have a warrenty
