Please help I just updated my PS3 to the new 4,50 update but now non of my games work :-( I cant even turn the thing off with out pulling out the plug


4.5 firmware for ps3 currently will not allow users to shut down unless you use your controller. They removed the option to shutdown the console using the power button due to new hacks that allow you to glitch the system an jailbreak your ps3! It's not a problem it's sonys way of keeping hackers out of their system.

JUst bought PS3cabelas dangerous hunt 2011-followed all instructions but cant get game going prompt keeps coming up saying reconnect wireless controller 1 to continue-what does that mean?


Sounds like your controller is not properly connected. Before turning your ps3 on, plug the controller in with the usb cable and then turn it on. If it does not automatically connect press the center button.

My controller wont register with the ps3 anymore and i have the cable to charge it and it still doesnt work the lights just keep flashing but it doesnt register


Try another controller and see if that will register, if that doesn't try another usb cable for the controller and if the controller still doesn't register then that means the controller board is bad and would need to be replaced.

My ps3 wont turn on help


try unplugging the power cord from the ps3 and putting it back on. if that doesnt work, your console might have kicked a breaker in your homes breaker box. on the ps3, always turn it off by the the back power switch.

When i turn my ps3 on it only shows the background. no users.


Hi, this sounds like a problem with your hard drive booting up. This seems to happen alot with the PS3s. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it in another PS3 and see if it does the same thing. If it does then your hard drive is damaged and needs replaced.

Fan isn't spinning and cooling the unit anymore.


This means that you ps3 is deffected. It can also mean that your ps3 is not getting good ventiltion if it is in a cabnet move out of there and make sure that no vent is close to a wall be 1.5 feet this will cost you ps3 to heat up. If that dosnt work than your fan isnt working properly call 1 800 345 7669 that is sonys number call and see what they can do

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted


There is an alternate way to restore your HDD. Turn off your system and when u see the red light, hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 4 beeps (1 alone, 1 alone, 2 together). It usually works on second try. it should show a screen and say hook up controller with a usb cord. Then it should show i think 6 options. Choose the restore option. it should work.

Hope it works and wish you all the best!
P.S.- I just got the 80010514 error on my ps3 and my ps3 games dont work anymore :(

Ps3 80 gig


Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.
