Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

No signal and no indicator lights on the front of the playstation 3

My son was on the game Beijing 2008 and updated the system to play on the game. It updated completely and when it went back to the screen it didn't list the options to thne play the game it just imply had the Sony logo and the wave go across the screen ...nothing else. Also the lights which flash at th front of the machine are no longer doing that. Is there a way we can fix this or is it now broken?

Cant play blue ray movie. wants to system update. how does this work


Hello,

There are some firmwares that support playing movies on the game, if the files are not complete, then the ps3 will not be able to play any movie, and some times it might affect game discs as well.

So when next your playstation 3 wants to system update, allow it, so it will automatically restore the files that are necessary to play a blue ray disc.

Systems update is done online, so you must have an internet connection either wireless or by connection for the playstation, and if it pops up the system update message next time, allow it. It will install new firmwares for the playstation 3 and you will be able to enjoy better services on the game.

Take care and good luck
Hope this was helpful

Ok so i bought a play station 3 in iraq while i was deployed it is 220 and i bought a power converter since i got home and it turn on every thing works but it will not put out a signal for my tv neither...


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

How do u eject game from playstation 3 console?


On the front of the machine there is a flat spot with labels on it . The triangle in the middle is the eject but the system has to be turned on which is to the right of the triangle both are just touch to activate. ig machine does not come on with a green light after a few then ther is a power switch on back left of machine. After switching on you will need to still touch the on sensor i mentioned on the front. Now most importantly your son may have his ps3 password protected and i cant help you with that but the password usually is only for the internet part of the functions. Hope this helps. please leave feed back if this helped. have a nice day

Will not play without using HDMI cable


  1. Make sure the AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
  2. Connect the other end of the AV Cable into the yellow Composite port for video, and into the white and red audio ports (if your TV does not have the red port, simply ignore it) on the back of your TV.
  3. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  4. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).
