Hi,

Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?

If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

I plugged in my PS3 using an HDMI cable and i get no feedback


If you just bought the PS3 use your composite cables that came with the system. Turn the PS3 on and go to the video settings, set up video input to HDMI. After you've done that plug your HDMI back into your PS3 and try turning it on. If that works go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If that doesn't work make sure your T.V. is on the same input that the HDMI cable is plugged in. If it is and still doesn't work try switching to a different HDMI port. If switching to a different HDMI port doesn't work try a new HDMI cable. If the new HDMI cable doesn't work then there is a problem with the port on the PS3 which would require a repair.

Playstaion switching itself off all the time message saying console not switched off properly after last use have done what it advises but still switching off


As we all know the proper way of turning the PS3 off is by using the controller all other ways are improper and can cause corrupt data files and make a PS3 system do what yours is doing. The only thing that might fix this issue is a system restore. NOTE: A system restore will delete all of your saved game data. You can back up your system onto a usb flash drive.

My ps3 got all wet


Best advice i can give you is turn it off and turn the main power switch off and unplug the machine. Leave it for a few days somewhere with lots of air circulation. Let the curcuits dry and if it still does not work you will have to send it in to sony. Call them and they will send you a box to ship it back to them. Or buy a new one :(
