The console turns on but when it gets to the staring screen it does not go through any more to the options where it has all of the icons it does not go through to the next screen. Is there a reset button or what can I do?

My ds is stuck in chinese


Turn on your DS. At the bottom center of the screen, you'll see an icon that looks like your DS. Touch that. It'll bring up more options. Touch the Wrench icon. More options will come up, touch the globelike icon that's already highlighted by default.

Select the language at the top left, if it's not in English already.

I turn on my ps3 it comes on but i get no icons only a black screen


Try reseting your display. To do this turn your ps3 off if it isnt already, turn it back on and continue to hold the power button until you hear the beeps. It should reset your display if that is the problem.

Ps3 problem


if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...

hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

Date settings gone


Is it a ds or a ds lite?

Turn on the unit with no cartidges. Press the screen to acknowledge the warning message.
On the next screen, press the tiny ds icon at the center bottom of the lower screen. This enters the setup. Fromhere you can press the clock calender icon (blue one) to set the time. Youcan also change other settingswith the other icons.

You can try the auto-diagnosis. heres how
Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu. 6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc. 7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system. 8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button. 9. In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen. Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc. 10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point. NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted.
