Attempt an install from a storage device as the other person suggeste. If this does not work, contact customer support from Sony to verify that you are still under warranty and request an RMA for your device. I know two people personally that have experienced this same problem, and it has been a failure of the hardware in the device.

I updated my PS3 because it told me it would not run without and update and now it doesn't recognize the controller... CECHP01 used the latest update 3.66 (it asked for 2.76 or later.)


PS3's will sometimes loose their connection to the controllers. I have always fixed this problem with these steps:

1. Make sure the system is off (red light)
2. plug the control in with the usb cable
3. press the PS button in the middle of the controller (this will let the console relearn the controller)
4. once the lights on the front of the controller are not blinking red anymore, and have a single green light indicating which player the controller has taken, hold the PS button and turn off the system
5. once the system is off, unplug the usb cable
6. the controller should work without the cable now. (check by pressing the PS button to turn the system back on

Controllers will lose their connection to the PS3 when they die completely, during updates, power outages, etc. I don't know what exactly causes it, but I have had to do this process several times since I got my PS3.

Thanks,
John Vickers

When I push and hold the ps button on the remote the screen goes black and flashes


Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

My screen is frozen in updates. It tells me to press ps button to use my controller. What is this?


Its the very middle button on your playstation remote. If its saying press the ps3 button on your control its possible your ps3 is not frozen but your ps3 remote has just turned off..

Press the very centre button and check the lights on the top of the joypad. Are any lights lit solid? Once the light comes on solid the controller is active. If these do not light youll need to charge your ps3 remote with the usb cable that came with the ps3.

Also if your ps3 remote is lit for number 2, hold down the ps button, very middle for about 5seconds. Should have an option for reassign controllers, select that and put your controller to number 1.

Hope this helps

My playstaion3 turns on but all i get is a black screen. Everything is connected...the remote wont even turn the system on. If it does turn on the screen is messed up and it freezes.


Ok first of all take out the Hard drive (under a cover on the bottom of the PS3) and reinsert it. Then connect the remote with the USB cable and when asked press the PS button. If it still doesn't work you are going to have to download the newest PS firmware from the PS website, put it on a flash disk (memory stick), put it in the PS3 and follow the instructions on PS's site to update the firmware.
