My playstation will not turn on ive tryd to use all the power points in my house and still not working can you pls help (ive left it unpluged all night and still not working when i turn it on)


hello. the most probable cause for a ps3 not turning on is broken power supply. my advice is to bring to your nearest sony service center. especially if your console is still under warranty. fixing it yourself might void the warranty. but if you still want to do it yourself buy yourself a power supply that is compatible with your console (40GB ps3=40GB ps3 power supply) here a link on how to open your ps3 http://www.llamma.com/PS3/repair/PS3_disassembly_tutorial.htm but remember, do this at your own risk. still the best way is to bring it to a service center. hope this helps

Ps3 the light goes Green,Yellow,Flashing Red


this is called the yellow light of death,, ylod..

Sorry to be the one to tell you this but its not good!!

A main chip/chips got to hot to many times over time...[CPU,Video and and/or RAM IC's..

This can be fixed but if not done right it will not work for long or make it unfixably

I would say send it back to sony,,

if your willing look up ylod fix and try to fix your self,,

refloating the chips do work if its done right,, be careful if you try, and do alot research on ylod first!!

My ps3 wont finish game update


this happened to me a while back it was so frustrating. but what i did was go to system settings and click on restore game settings and dont worry it wont mess ur ps3 up. what you need to do after that is if u have a psp registered for your ps3 you have to do that again and if you have any bluetooth devices you will have to register them again and fix all your settings back. also it will not clear gamesaves or pics or song or pics so dont worry. i hope it works fo you to. Good Luck

Ive had my PS3 hooked up using HDMI for years now but i bought a component cable because i have just bought a PVR and it can only record using component and not HDMI. The problem im getting is that when i...


Hook it up with the component cable and then hold the power button on the console until something comes up on screen. Make sure you have selected the component input on your tv or else you wont get anything anyway.

What holding the power button does is it resets the video settings to the lowest common denominator and then you can reconfigure it for the optimal picture quality of the component cables.

If that doesn't work double check the component connections on the back of the TV and just make sure they are where they should be and that no accidents were made while hooking it up.

Please post the results from these steps here so that I know what happened.

Are you sure you dont need a dull gray one?
I would try ebay after a bit otherwise you will have to wait as the new systems are the ones with the black case!
