Is the hard drive powered by the USB lead, i.e. it has no seperate power supply plugged into it? If it is powered by USB then maybe you should unplug your other USB devices and allow the laptop/PC to give it the power it needs, then it will work

Remove the trim panels in front of the center console. Locate the engine computer attached to a floor-mounted bracket on the transmission tunnel between the console and the firewall.

  • Turn the diagnostic mode selector, located in a round opening on the side of the engine computer, until it stops. Observe the small red and green LED lights on the side of the computer next to the mode selector. They will flash to indicate the modes, with a pause between each mode. One quick flash is mode one, two quick flashes is mode two and so on. When the light flashes indicate mode three, quickly turn the mode selector counterclockwise until it stops. You have entered mode three diagnostics.

    My playstation 3 wont play sound through the hdmi cord (it used to until the other day when it just stopped) and then we plugged it in with an AV cord and it was playing the sound but there was no picture?...


    2 things:
    1st try doing a system restore in safe mode and rebuilding data.
    2nd Instead of doing a quick recovery do a full recovery.


    SAFE MODE:

    1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

    2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

    3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

    NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


    Good Luck!

    How to set up yobo controllers for ps3


    I just bought a used one today and took me a little while to get it to work. Plug the USB receiver in and turn on the PS3. Press the Mode button and the lights will flash repeatedly at a fast rate (it's searching for the receiver). When it finds the USB receiver, the lights will still flash, but slower than before. When they're doing this, press the mode button again, and that should be all that you have to do. You can also plug the receiver in USB slot one, the charge cable in slot 2, and do the steps to set it up to make it work while charging. (I tried taking the receiver out while charging, and the lights started flashing again so I guess the USB receiver has to be in at all times)
