Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I was playing PES2008 and it freezed, then after a while i decided to turned it off with the sixasis controller and nothing, so i tried to turned it off manulay from the power button at the front of the PS3 and also nothing, so i turned it off from the back. Since then it cant recognize any disc (Game, BD, DVD, CD, etc). Later I formated my hard drive and after 4 hours still nothing. Also tried pushing the power button for 5 seconds and after second bit still...wont read any disk. I´m under the one yerar warranty (nine months since i bought it at Target Store in Miami), have the receipt, original box and everything. Will sony give a brand new PS3?? or its going to be a refurbished one???, because I bought a brand new one an a of course I expect to receive a brand new one in exchange. Can I take it back to Target Store and get a new one there and then?? PLEASE HELP ME ANY ONE, how should I proceed. Thanks!!.

Maybe you should use your free warranty. Refurbished or not, it will still work and that's what will make you happy. Use the free warranty while you still have it so that you don't risk ruining anything inside of the console.

Tfx20r ice maker won't fill

Try this fill the ice maker with tap water so we can decide if it is the ice maker or the water control valve. After the water freezes if the ice dumps and the ice maker does not refill with water then you will need to replace the=> WR57X10033 Water Control Valve If the ice maker does nothing after being filled with tap water and the water freezes then this would point to the=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly If you have questions I will be here to answer them for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

You gotta hook the controller back to the system via the usb cord and then press the PS button. Finish the format.

Let me know if you still have problems afterwards.

Ps3 freezes whenever i turn it on

i have the same problem dude. I played my PS3 pretty regularly for about 6 months, then one day it started freezing. I have been searching for a solution ever since, but all Ive been able to find out is that i can send it to Sony, with $150, and they will fix it and give me a ninety day warranty. But other than that i can't help you. If you found a better way, let me know please.
