If it was a powerful magnet and was near the hard drive, it could have messed with that. Aside from the hard drive, I can't think of anything that would react negatively to a magnet.

Can you elaborate a bit on "doesn't work"? Does the red light come on when you plug in the power? Does video come up on the screen but the PS3 not boot? etc

My ps3 wont read any apps like netflix or any discs. This all happened once the ps3 was re flowed. Any ideas on how to fix this?


That doesn't sound good. If a hard-reset doesn't resolve it, then it was probably damaged when it was "re flowed". If it's a 60 GB, send in to Sony for refurbished model. ($160 +/-) If not, buy a slim.

One son's franchise works, the other's doesn't. When it loads the screen is blank.... Any tips?


The problem may be that the PS3's video settings are not going through the correct cables. To fix this, hold your finger on the Power Button for around 5-10 seconds and you should hear 2 beeps. This will reset your video output to the default cable. You can let go of the power button after the second beep. The screen should then be working.

Flashing colours when playing new COD 5.


i can GUARANTEE you it happens with other games..you just havent tried EVERY game out there for the ps3, as this would be impossible. Your RSX video processor is overheating, very common with graphic intensive games such as COD5....how do you fix it? well it needs to be disassembled and reflowed and/or thermal pasted. or call sony and send it back for 150plustax...or we fix that for 65. goodluk
