Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My PS3 won't stay on when I turn it on. I push the back button then touch the front to turn it on, and the green light comes on for a second and nothing comes on the screen then a red light comes on and it turns off. What's wrong with it?

-it is a power problem. -i turn on my ps3 system using the main power button on the back of the console and the red light comes on in front. -i then touch the standby button in front and the red light...


You can fix it yourself. The CPU was to hot and the solder has come off. Bad part is the solder is under the CPU and must be heated up. It is lead free so it needs more heat then lead and you need to add flux. I would start by getting the board out. Remove the thermal paste off the CPU. Add flux with a flux pen. You want to get the flux under the CPU so you might want to tip it on its side. After you have a good amount of flux under the CPU you want to start to heat the parts around the CPU. I would use a heat gun with temp. settings. You first want to heat around the CPU to keep solder on the other parts from cracking. You dont want to over heat the parts. After you preheat the board you want to heat the CPU. It needs to be around 400 or 500 degs f. a good 15 or 30 sec. keep moving the heat gun. After heating the CPU you want to start the cool down. Same as warming up the board but you want the board to cool down slow. After all this you want to add New thermal paste to the CPU. This helps transfer from the CPU. This is a must because your PS3 is overheating as it is. After you do all this some people say it only works for 2 to 6 weeks. Its all on how you fix the board and how good of a job you did. I would back up your hard drive. Then hope for the best!! good luck and i hope this helps you out.

Play station three will not turn on on then off when power button is pushed.


First, old PS3 or new slim PS3?

The old models have a power switch on the back that must be on. You'll know its on if you have a red light on the front of your console.

To turn the PS3 on, press the power button. A light should turn green, and you're good to go.

To turn off the older PS3's, you must hold the power switch down for several seconds. For the new slim model, just press the button quickly.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

Ps3 wont start up


This could be one of 2 problems...
1. The firmware is corrupted and it needs to be fixed by Sony.
2. The video defaults need to be reset. Here is how to do this.

Reset the Video Output Settings. 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. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
