    when i push the power button the unit comes on for a second & then shuts off.

  • ppullins Oct 24, 2008

    I have the red light when I turn the switch in the back off then on again, but when I touch the power button on the front to turn it on it tries to turn on the shuts off with no red light. That's not the power supply if the red light comes on. I also can't turn it on with the controller either. All 4 lights just blink for a while, I guess trying to connect to the console

    Just bought the PS3 in the US and took it abroad as a present for my friend.Just after two weeks it will not stay on. If you turn it on the light stays green for ten seconds and after that beeps and turns flashing red again.
    Please help.

If there is not even a red light that means that the power supply is gone. find a working one of ebay and install it yourself if your warrantu is expired.

How do i change my sony playstation3 from high definition to normal television

Hold the ON/OFF button on the system while its turned on. It will turn on, then back off, and beep a few times. Thats a soft reset. Should do the trick and wont hurt anything. Wont lose anything either.

Vidoe output is funky

Straight from Support/troubleshooting section:

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution."
