  • Step 1: Check on the status of the PSN.
  • Step 2: If the PSN is online, use the PS3 Internet Browser and try to visit any website. If you can, your Internet service is running correctly, go to the next step. If you cannot there is an issue with your Internet service. Click on the type of connection below for troubleshooting steps.
  • Step 3: Try accessing the PlayStation Store. If you can, this means that the PS3 can connect to the PlayStation Network and the issue is with the game. Try contacting the software publisher for additional assistance.

    Tip

    Playstation 3 not starting up?


    Are you plagued by the problem of your Playstation 3 not booting up properly?

    Got a screen with just a background and no icons?

    Seeing a wavy line and nothing else?

    This is the tip for you!

    This is a problem with the Playstation 3 software becoming corrupt. It is very easy to fix if you follow my simple steps.

    Please note, this method will erase your hard drive so any save games you had will be lost. All your online trophies will be preserved.

    Step 1.

    Turn your Playstation 3 off into standby mode (red light on)

    Step 2.

    Press and hold the power button. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off back into standby mode (red light on). You must now release the power button.

    Step 3.

    Press and hold the power again. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps release the power button.

    Step 4.

    Your Playstation 3 will now start up with a screen asking you to connect a controller via USB. Connect your controller and then press the PS button.

    Step 5.

    A menu will now be displayed on screen. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". This will then ask you to confirm that you wish to go ahead with the system restore. Accept whatever the Playstation 3 says.

    The Playstation 3 will now go through the system restore process and re-install the system software back to out of the box status. You will have to set your user name, date and time and network settings again.

    Once you have completed the above, the Playstation 3 will restart and spring back to life again!

    I hope this helps all of those out there who are suffering this problem.

    First make sure that your PS3 connects with your acces point eather wireless or with wire, te second step is configurate your PS3 for wire connection or wireless connection.
    These settings are found under the network settings.
    Also see the manual to see how you need to configurate the PS3 in detail.

    Allso make sure when the PS3 is connected corectly to the acces point that the firewall of the acces point is not interfearing the connection.

    My new homefront ps3 will play on my friends playstation but will not play on mine help


    If it won't play online what you'll need to do is set a static ip in your router for your ps3 and then open ports TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
    UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070
    (you'll need to contact your router about that)

    If it won't play AT ALL follow these steps ( http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=1488 ) to get into safe mode and select option 3.

    If NONE of your PS3 games work and NONE of your blu rays work, your blu ray drive is fried and you'll need to get it fixed. You can go to: us.playstation.com/getservice to get it fixed.

    I bought a second hand PS3. The gent I bought it off has gone overseas and I am unable to get the password for it. How do I set a new one


    If you are referring to the Playstation Network Online password then without his personal details you will not be able to reset that password. However you are able to reset the PS3 so that it clears all information so you yourself can go to playstation.com and create your own account. You can then select Playstation Network on the newly restored PS3 and enter your own details.
    Follow these simple steps to clear all Playstation Network account details.WARNING! You will lose any saved game data and other information doing this!!
    Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby. (Red light on)
    Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep about 5 seconds later then beep again and switch to standby.
    Step 3. Take your finger off the power button but press and hold it again. It will beep as soon as you touch it, beep again 5 seconds later then beep twice quickly. When you hear this take your finger off the power button.
    Step 4. The PS3 will ask you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then a menu will appear.
    Step 5. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 system". This will restore your PS3 back to a clean state so you can put your own details in, for example time and date, console name.
    Step 6. On your computer goto https://store.playstation.com/accounts/register/beginNewAccountRegistrationFlow.action
    There you will be able to create a new Playstation Network account for free. You can then use these account details on your PS3 when you log in to Playstation Network.

    Hope this helps
