Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 just stopped working. Rebooted system, everything came up, but told me can't use as currently being used by another user. Then discovered all games and data have disappeared and now I just have a blue screen with nothing at all. Has it died today or what can I do?

Why wont king.com games connect with fackebook


Many iPhone users that play King games are having problems with them connecting to Facebook. King is currently working on a bug fix to try and stop it but, I have told several people, sign out of facebook on your phone, go to settings-safari-scroll to advanced-click website data-delete all website data-go back and delete all cookies and history- then double click the bottom button and your visited app will show-hold any of them for 3 seconds and an x will appear- erase all of them one by one- then holding the bottom button and top button shut the phone down, this is a cold reboot- then restart your phone and once rebooted click on the King game you wish to play and follow the steps. This works 9 out of 10 times.

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.

My Ps3 will play and work fine with everything, It can play movies (dvd & Blu-Ray) and I can even download a demo from the store and play that, but it wont play and of my ps3 game discs.


Unfortunately this same issue happened to me as well, and I had to send my PS3 in for repair. But maybe what I was told to do will work for you! Here's what I was told.

You're going to want to backup everything on your PS3. The Backup Utility can be found in the System Settings Menu on the Settings Menu on the XMB menu (XMB > Settings > System Settings). More info on how to backup your information can be found on the Playstation website, found here.

Next you'll want to restore your PS3 to it's default/factory settings. It's also found in the Settings Menu on the XMB, labelled "Restore Default Settings." Just follow the on-screen instructions.

Once it's restored, see if the problem is fixed. If it is, congrats! Just use the Backup Utility to restore all of your backed up data.

If not, either try the online Knowledge Center or send in your PS3 for repair (if it's under warranty, it's free!)

Hope it all works out! If you send in your PS3 they won't send you won't get it back for almost a month...

Turned on ps3 and was told to update? when update was complete tryed to sign into the ps3 network and was told the password or email was incorrect? when they weren't? and now its saying there is an error?


Sony are either doing a maintenence update or trying to fix the latest update bug that is stopping people from logging on. It will be fixed soon, give it some time and try again later.

Hope this helps

Well, I usually always use an USB memory stick when I am going to download and install the system updates. But today I tried to install via Internet. I got the data downloaded and started install. Then, at...


PS# Error 80023017

Following on from the PS3 3.50 firmware update today, we have started to hear of owners having problems logging on to their accounts.

We have heard of PS3 owners who have updated their system complaining that they cannot sign in, and every time they enter their password are getting the wrong password message. We have had customers who have two PSN accounts and cannot log into either of them. They are met with wrong password message, and even when they use "Forgot your Password" all that comes up is an error.

Conrad Zimmerman of Destructtoid is reporting that PSN is going to have some scheduled maintenance today. This could be why users are complaining of problems logging on to their accounts.

The maintenance is expected to take place during 8 am until 5pm Pacific time. There will be a lot of users who are at work during this time so it will not be a problem for them, but for everyone else it will be somewhat of an annoyance.

Everything goes extremely slow.


Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.
