PS# Help for 5 yr. old boy...please

I hooked up my sons new playstation 80gb and it says on the sharp 32" 720p that the device is not reconizable or something to that effect? I hooked it up using the AC jacks that it comes with and an HDMi and it still did not work. When I hook it up to my main TV which is the Samsung A750 with Monster 1000 Ultra High Ssspeed HDMI cable it works like a champ? The HDMI cable that I was trying is of a lower line...What do you guys thinkk???? Thanks in advance for your help.

Sony ps 3 won't show initial screen. turns on/grn light is on indicating but nothing happens/ have chgd the rca cables/ chgd tv's/made sure not dusty chgd all inputs/still no resp//any ideas? also, no...


Turn off the PS3. Press the power on button (the system will beep) and hold it down for approximately 5 seconds until you hear a second beep. This will reset the video to the default. You should get a low resolution screen and be able to log on and reset the display to the desired settings.

Playstation 3 won't boot


Try holding the power button on the PS3 for 5 seconds when turning it on. This will reset the default video mode. (The system might be set to component since you are using HDMI!)

Origiannly had my son's PS# hooked up to our HD TV


You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

    My 10 yr old son was putting in a new game into his pap and a white screen came up staying something about downloading v something. he chose yes and while it was downloading he interrupted it by turning it...


    Never turn off the PSP while updating!

    Now, its bricked!

    Try this, what you do is take out the Battery, plug in the charger, put the Battery back in... turn PSP on. See if it'll work.

    Works for me!

    A ps3 start up frezee


    finally !! solved the problem :)

    unfortunately the story has not the best ending ...
    i had an old non-working laptop with 80Gb hdd.

    I took the PS3's hdd out and replaced it with the laptop's one. Playstation did not recognize the file system and suggested to format the hard drive. Formatting was done in 10 seconds, after that system rebooted and logon screen appeared again :)

    all saves from games, all music, pictures, videos and downloaded stuff are lost :(

    fortunately you can re-download all purchased games from PS-Network for free.

    now I have a 80Gb PS3 istead of 60Gb ..

    hope this will help you too.

    P.S. i've seen that Linux has support of PS3 file system. maybe this will help to restore all saved data.. but this is just my assumption

    ENTERNET CONNECTIONS FOR PS-3 80GB


    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.

    PS Config Message


    Boot it up without a controller plugged in. It soulnd like the Controller is doing this to you instead of the Console. If that is not the case , then you have a problem with the Controller port. Going to Config screen is controller controlled function. Only a controller can bring it out. So its one or the other. Controller , or Port. Post another comment and let me know.
