When you hit the power button, if nothing happens, check your outlet for power. Then check the plugs on your PS3, then check the plug slots on your PS3 for any broken wires. If not, send it into Sony, and within a week they will fix it and send you a PS3 Back. Hope this helped.

My new ps3 wont play my ps3 game it just shows a spining circle top of the screen and wont play


I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your new PS3. Unfortunately when you receive that spinning circle it is indicating that your system is not reading the game. This could happen because the disk is damaged or there is a problem with the laser.

If this is a brand new system, your laser should function properly. Try cleaning the disk and reinserting it into the PS3.

If this continues to happen then you most likely will have a laser malfunction. If the system is brand new you should have some type of warranty to get it fixed with no charge.

You can always contact sony to find out if you have a warranty or not. The number for Sony is usually listed on the back of your video game booklets.

I hope I was able to fixya problem and Happy Gaming!

Ps3 wont work


I sure wish I could because I have the same problem. I purchased an almost new ps3 from a seller on ebay and all I get is standby then when I try to power it up, I get the blinking red light. Sony wont help because I purchased it from ebay so I am not the original owner. The seller wont help, he swears it didnt have that problem when he shipped it. Ive tried removing the hd, holding down the power button, unplugging it in the back, and nothing helps.
