Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

I recently bought a used ps3 system. I was changing my system settings so I could hook up to my portable hotspot, created by my Android. The problem I'm having is I had to manually remove a game from the disc drive. Now my system wont turn on, I cant get it to reset either. I have a red flashing light, that flashes yellow then green and back to red. Before my system went bonkers I got a error code of ( 80130182 ). Any ideas guys. Ive cleaned it,and remved the hard drive.

    No its hooked up rite. I'm wondering If my disc drive is still reading a game. I'm not familiar with these systems. I need pictures and diagrams. I still have the flashing red light problem to. Is it possible to trouble shoot with my Bluetooth.

Ok what you got is known as the BLOD.. Blinking Lights Of Death, its usually caused by the ps3 harddrive, seeing as you already removed it, you need to put it back in, unplug everything and leave it for an hour or so, then try turning it on, leave it for 2 minutes let it blink and hopefully it will go away, if not you wll have no choice but to send it back in to sony for repair. OR you can follow this video guide to fix it,..

Re: error code 80130182



If its wireless take all the wires out, wait 1 minute, plug them back in, and try again. I think the problem is actually putting wires in the wrong spots. Double check to make sure all your cables are hooked up to the right place. Worked for me! if all else fails check the connection with verizon and your android.. restart with the battery out if neccessary

    What do you mean by "manually removing a game"? Did you pry open the CDROM because it would not open and had a game inside it? If so, what did you use to get it open and how did you do it? Did you break any parts when removing the game? When you put a game in now, and close the door - does it sound like the disk is going to load while the lights you mentioned go through the changing from red to yellow to green and then back to red? In a quiet room - put a disk in the console and close the door. Listen and tell me if it starts to spin, pauses and then tries to spin again? Is it going through a loop like that while the lights are going back to red? If so, then the problem is you have broken something on the hatch that will not secure the disk while it gets up to operating speed.

No. There is not. Even if your phone has that option your service provider has to authorize that feature. Fyi most prepaid providers do not permit tethering.

How do I get my tablet connected to mobile data?


Most cell phones have a built-in wireless hotspot option. On Android, go to Settings, under Wireless and Networks there should an option for Tethering & portable hotspot, setup the hotspot settings first, then turn on the hotspot, and make sure your 3G/4G/etc data is enabled, then have your tablet connect via wireless to your phone's hotspot and you're good to go. Good luck.

How do I find my SSID for my wifi on my mobile phone


Settings >> Wireless & Networks >> More >> Tethering & Portable hotspot (I am assuming you were able to reach here to get your hotspot started)

Here, "set up Wi-Fi hotspot" and check under Network SSID. This would be your SSID.

Can get my archos 5 to conect to my android phone


If you mean to connect your Archos to your Android device through Wi-Fi, than, yes, you can! But, only if your android device supports the tethering feature. For example if you have an Android 2.2 (Froyo) device than you go to Settings->>Wireless & networks->>Tethering & portable hotspot and tap "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot". From the Archos, go to the the Wi-Fi settings and connect to the network you've just created. If you do not have the tethering option available, you should find out if your carrier or device manufacturer has an update for the device. Hope it helps!
