1 To reset your PS3 back to its original settings go to options. Select system settings and click reset system. WARNINGFollowing these directions will wipe ALL data from your PS3 system. Do NOT do this,
(this will reformat the HDD)

1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

3 After you complete the operation and restart the system, the initial setup screen will be displayed. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform initial setup of the system software. Note that performing hard reset on your PS3 will return your password to 0000. However, note that all settings other than the password will also be reset. Once these settings are reset, they cannot be recovered.

My ps3 comes up with an error when i am trying to do the new update for FIFA 10. Comes up with error 8002ae22... can someone help in normal people terms on how to fix this

If you receive an 800 series error code on the PLAYSTATION 3 system, we recommend performing the following steps which may correct the problem.
Install the Latest System Software Update

To check what version of the System Software is currently installed on your PLAYSTATION 3, from the PS3 Home Menu go to Settings > [System Settings] > [System Information]. The system will display the System Software version number. You can check online to make sure you have the latest version installed.
Restore Default Settings

From the PS3 Home Menu, go to Settings > [System Settings] > [Restore Default Settings]. Once you select Restore Default Settings, you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through them and press the X button to restore the settings. After the operation is complete, you will see the initial set-up screen that appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3 system. You will need to go through the initial set-up process before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3 system.

Try going in to the playstation diagnostic menu. This is accessible as follows:

Make sure you have the controller charger cable plugged in and your controller plugged in before you start. While the PS3 is off press and hold the power button, the PS3 will start, beep 3 times and then turn off again. Once it's switched off take your finger off the power button for a second or two then put it back on, listening out for two beeps, then remove it. On the screen it will ask you to plug your controller in and press the PS button, do so and you'll be presented with 6 options.

The first one you want to try is restore file system, this will check your PS3 for any errors on the hard drive, and correct them if they can. This may take a little while but let it run through and see if it works.

If not then move on to the next option, but BACK UP YOUR DATA BEFORE DOING SO, the next step will wipe your PS3 clean! Repeat the process above until you get to the menu and then select "Rebuild database".

Try these two first and let me know if it helps! :)

When the display is via HDMI Games won't load?

is your screen a full hd one ?
if not, verify your resolution settings in the ps3 system settings ; you may experience problems if you allow you system to run in a resolution not supported by your TV .

Used PS3 will not recognize or play games or dvds

The dvd drive has a bad laser in it more then likely. Thats why it doesn't matter what disc your putting in so either the laser would be replaced or a whole new drive put in.

I would notify the seller on Ebay and get the system swapped out with another one or get your money back. Refurbished systems mean that something was wrong with it and parts were swapped out or either repaired down to component level. Sometimes the technician doesn't check out the system fully and thats why you can run into the problem that you have now.
