Push the eject button for 10 seconds. then you should hear some noises inside the drive, the disc will come out and after that everything should work I hope thats the easyest of the solutions the next would be to physically open the console but try that first and let me know if you feel upto the challenge I will give you the procedure to do so.

PS3 console don't start


One of 2 problems. Either, you don't have the cords hooked up correctly, or,,,,(RLOD) Red Light Of Death. This usually happens from losing the heat sync properies between the APU or CPU. Please check out the many vids on YouTube available for the RLOD FIX.

My dad cant hook mine up for some reason


Ok

First, Turn your T.V. on and go to the input mode on the t.v.

Second, there should be two cords in the back of your playstation3.
The power cord and the input cord. These are the two basic cords to turn your playstation on.

Once you have them plugged in, on the back of your playstation 3 there should be a power switch right above the power cord. Click it on so that the I is down and the O is up. In the front of your Playstation, a red light will appear indicating that the Playstation is ready to be turned on. Tap the red light until it turns green ( this should only be tapped once) When it is green the system will go to the start-up menu and enjoy your Playstation 3

The controller is not powering up with new batteries


If your controller does not power up then it is because it has not been synced to the console.

I do not know what system you have so I can not tell you how to do this.

For instance, If you have a Wii, you need to turn on the wii, open the battery cover on the controller. Press the little red button. Then open the little door on the wii where you put the memory card and hit that red button. that should connect the controller to the Wii.

For Xbox 360:
1) Turn on 360 (ring of light) and controller (Start or Guide button).
2) Press the Connect button on the 360.
3) Press the Connect button that's at the top of the controller, next to the slot for a charging cord.
4) Everything spins and flashes, and syncs up.

If you have PS3 then:

Plug your controller into the console with the usb cable, then hit the PS button. that will sync it to the PS3 then you can unplug it.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using Fixya!!

When i turn my ps3 on,red light goes green then red right away


Try disconnecting your PS3 and then for 10 seconds if that doesn't work, disconnect all jackets meaning all usb connection ports connected in it. Remove them, then turn on your ps3 see what happens (without using the controller), then disconnect the ps3 cord that connects to your extension cord or jacket and plug it back in. Try it again. Then again with the controller could try. Try disconnecting other ports such as other stuff like as listed, Irons,Fans, etc.           !!!!!!DON'T USE TOO MUCH POWER!!!!


The Same thing happened to me on my Wii though.



If nothing works call Customer Support (SONY)

Ps3


if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...

hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

insetad of restoring the filing system, restore the default settings ore restart the system

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted


There is an alternate way to restore your HDD. Turn off your system and when u see the red light, hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 4 beeps (1 alone, 1 alone, 2 together). It usually works on second try. it should show a screen and say hook up controller with a usb cord. Then it should show i think 6 options. Choose the restore option. it should work.

Hope it works and wish you all the best!
P.S.- I just got the 80010514 error on my ps3 and my ps3 games dont work anymore :(

No sound or picture for ps3


You both sound like you have an over heating issue. Mostly if the fan does not stay on. The PS3 always has a fan on, just the first setting is very quiet. Do you feel any air being blown out of the back (where the power cord goes in)?
