Hello.
As for the PS3. When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first.
The controller is probably unfixable. Sony would consider that abuse and would not replace it. I would honestly go to a gaming store that takes trade in's and trade it in for a refurbished one. That would be your best bet.

I hope this helps! Good luck to you.

I did a system restore to factory settings on my ps3 and now the sixaxis remote wont sync so i cant even use my ps3 they wont even work in safe mode.


You have to plug the usb cable into the PS3 and then the sixaxis. The PS3 doesn't recognize them because you reset the entire system. This is the same thing that you have to do when you buy a new one that didn't come with the PS3 at the start.

How to Make Great Drinking Chocolate



Hot chocolate is one of thoses childhood drinks that are amazing. It doesn't matter how old or young you are - everybody loves a good hot chocolate.
I've followed hundreds of different recipes but my all time favorite is this one. It's actually a Parisian hot chocolate recipe so not only does it taste great but it sounds very fancy.
Ingredients:
2 cups full fat milk
5 oz (130g) of good quality bittersweet chocolate ie high percentage of cocoa - chopped small
2 tablespoons of brown sugar (to taste).
Method:
1. Heat the milk in a medium pan
2. When the milk is warm whisk in the chocolate and stir until melted and very hot.
3. Cook on a low boil light for about 3 minutes but whisk constantly. Make sure it doesn't boil over.
4.Taste it and add sugar if desired.
Serve in small coffee cups for a really sophisticated look.

Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe (with soy milk)


Ingredients:
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 and 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips



Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix the oil and sugar (you can use margarine if you prefer) until it becomes creamy and then add the eggs, the soy milk and the vanilla.
Combine the dry ingredients mixing them well and then add them slowly into the cream created before. Every few spoonfuls of dry ingredients, stir and then keep adding.
Blend well until it all looks smooth with no clumps and then add the chocolate chips.
Take a tray covered with wax paper and drop a spoonful of batter every inch or two, then let it bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
The cookies will be ready when they will be a sort of dark-ish gold. Pick up one with a tool to make sure it's cooked on the bottom too and take the tray out carefully.

Turns on but no disc read or remote will not connexted


Can you give any information relating to the game you are trying to play? Do other games work? If your machine powers up and everything works accept the dvd drive the laser/drive maybe at fault. It maybe as simple as you need a new sixaxis dualshock 3 controller.

Wireless gigaware controller wont connect to ps3


I'm guessing you haven't paired the controller to the system yet. If you look under section 04 in the little black book that came with the PS3 it tells you how to pair them so every time you turn the PS3 on it will pick up the signal of the sixaxis assigned to that slot. I had some of the same problems you did until I read up on it. If you have already done this I apologize but that's all I can think of.
hope this helps.

Help!


Seems that the battery is low on power, when the controller is connected to the usb port of the ps3, all leds should start flashing, this show that the battery of the controller is recharging, when done the leds go off.
Note that before the leds start flashing that it can thake up an minute before it starts doing that.
Keep your ps3 on to recharge the controller.

Succes.

PS3 Controller will only work when plugged into the USB


I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?
  • Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
  • Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
  • Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
  • Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
  • Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.

Sixaxis on ps2 ???


No, it's not possible to hook up sixaxis to PS2. Sixaxis is a part of DualShock 3 for PS3 which is an optional feature in the PS3 games. Playstation 2 controllers run off of DualShock 2. So sorry, but you're gonna need a PS3 for that.

CONTROLLER PROBLEM


Try resetting your Controller. Using a paper clip, there is a small reset button on the underside of the SIXAXIS. Press it.

While your PS3 is still on, press the PS button on the controller.
