Hi kbmindfulnmo,

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!

Hope this helps and any questions let me know?

I have a madcatz call of duty black ops controll, it charges when i connect it but wont connect to my ps3? help me!


You need to sync your controller with the ps3, put the USB dongle into one of the available slots on the ps3 - exactly where you would normally connect a wired controller on the front. Now switch on your ps3, the dongle will connect, now put your USB cable into the black ops controller and switch on - your 4 lights should be flashing on the controller. Now press connect on the USB dongle, your controller should now sync to the ps3 and hopefully will show as controller No 1. Remove the USB cable and play wireless.

I would take the game to a friends house and see if they work their. If they do, then your PS3 must be having some issues reading the Call of Duty formats. If they do not work, then you know it's the disc and it needs to be replaced.

If you can play black ops, then I wouldn't worry about it. If you need to download something to play the game then the system should have you do it through the system update.
