Check to see if the hard drive is secure. It is in the bottom of the system under a small plastic door, and held in by a blue security screw. With the system off, carefully take the drive out and reinsert it fully.. That would be the first thing I would try

I have a D-link DSL-2750U router worked fine till yesterday, but now its power led keeps on giving a red light it should give green a second or two later but it keeps givings


Reset router. There are two resets. A simple push reboots and holding it in clears all custom settings. Try the first.

This is a quick fix and usually does it. Test with network cable and work your way backwards to modem if you still have problems.

assume power supply is failing or overheating, suggest replace power supply for new one or one with higher power rating to cope with power demand.

I hope this was useful.

Flashing red light after switching on


The only suggestion I have is to try a hard reboot. Holding the power button on the PS3 itself untill you hear a double beep. If this does not fix the issue you have to take it in. There is something that crashed inside the CPU or OS of your system. Hope the hard reboot helps, sorry if not..

My PS3 keeps on rebooting. Red light keeps on


The only solution I can offer is your PS3 is most likely overheating. Make sure you don't block any of the cooling vents in front or back of the console.

How i can fix red screen on ps3 ?


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try the below steps -

1. turn off your ps3 with switch at back
2.hold power button
3.(do this while holding pwr button) switch back on the ps3
4. if done correctly the ps3 should make a loud fan noise causing the fans to enhance for awhile, that should clean out anything that could overheat the ps3

Sometimes the red light will be flashing because there is a problem with the connection of the hard drive to the rest of the PS3 or the hard drive itself is broken.
You can usually fix this problem by re-setting the drive. To do this, go to the side of your console and take out the hard drive. Then replace it in exactly the same position. If the red light is still flashing when you turn your PS3 on, you might have to get a new hard drive, or even a new PS3. Please post comments for more help or information..........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

PS3 startup fails


try removing the hard drive then booting it up then putting it back in and booting up again.

then try holding the power button while the ps3 is in standby (red light) till it beeps,... then beeps again,...then turns red again,....then let go and hold the power button again real fast you should hear beep....then a double beep beep. let go of button and you should see recovery console. choose rebuild file system. it will reboot and go through the rebuild steps. then if it still doesnt work go through the steps of recovery consol again and choose rebuild database.

Ps3 wont eject just turns itself off


Try booting the system while holding the power on button. Hold the button and keep it held until it turns off. After the system shuts off, try turning it on normally. Let me know if this helps.
