Probably a bad power supply or motherboard. Or it isn't plugged in ;-) I buy broken PS3s and repair them, and usually if the red light doesnt come on even when its plugged in and the power switch is on, that is what it means. Going to have to send it in to Sony (if under warranty) or swap out parts. Spares are available on ebay for whichever component is bad.

I put a game in my ps3 when it started up it said it was loading trophies but it is still at 0 i can see the game in the background but cant get to it please help


You need to try two different things.

1) Restart your PS3 by holding the power button until it turns off, then switch the power button on the back off and on, then reboot the PS3.

If the problem still exists-

2) After restarting your PS3 go to settings>restore factory defaults and your PS3 will be returned to its original settings which should clear up any kind of glitches.

Hopefully this helped!

I have a problem with my samsung tv and my PS3, when i try to be on HDMI... All this time (for about 1,5 year) it worked perfectly, but now it doesnt! The tv has a "No signal" message and...


It is possible that your PS3 has "Forgotten" its HDMI setting. Please try the following to see if it fixes your problem :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to display.

Do this with the HDMI lead connected and hopefully it will sort it for you.

Hope this helps

Ok, please try the following steps :

Step 1. Turn your PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then 5 seconds later it will beep again and then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this then continue to the next step

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

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.

I THINK YOU NEED TO BUY NEW RCA JACKS,, BECAUSE IF THE ELECTRICAL FUSE WENT FROMT HE TV TO RCA JACKS THEN ALL THE CORDS THAT PLUGS TO THE PS2 ARE SHORTED OUT.
