Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 and Computer Internet

Have you had anyone say that while using the PS3 they were having any problems with their computer too? We don't have any problems with the PS3 being online but when we are on the computer at the same time someone is on the PS3 my computer freezes up and my IT guy is trying to tell me it is because of the PS3! Is that a possibility and is there something I can do to fix it?

Sounds like crazy talk to me.

You can try updating the router firmware and also the PS3 firmware, but this would be the first time I've ever heard of something like this.

PS3 works great just won't connect to internet - have checked internet connections out, they all work, just PS3 won't connect. Is there a fix for that?


Try replacing the wi-fi antenna - only a few dollars. And also you could try replacing the bluetooth board - the antenna connects to that.They are your hardware fixes.

You could use an ethernet cable, if the problem persists, then it's probably a router problem.

Turning on unit, display of "cannot start the correct hard disk was not found" I tried reseting it by holding the pwr button for ten seconds, didn't work. What can I do?


The only thing I can think of is if you know anyone else who has a ps3, try using your hard drive in their ps3 to see if it works, if not you may have to buy a new hard drive. I don't have a ps3 so I am not sure if the hard drives are removable or not, but I do have an Xbox 360, and the hard drives are removable, and are very easy to remove.

When i put ma ps3 on it goes green yellow red


Hi,
I experienced the same issume before. This is called Yellow Light of Death or (YLOD)
Please see below on some information regarding this issue and some possible reslotion to prevent this from happening:
If we go by Sony's definition then having PS3 YLOD means "general hardware failure". So it means that a fault could have occurred anywhere in your Console. Don't be afraid though, since most of the times PS3 YLOD is due to motherboard getting detached.
Tips on how to fix it:

Alternatively you can try to repair ps3 YLOD yourself. There are a couple of things you can try to fix YLOD - check for any loose connections since some connections might be loose, you can also try switching it off for around 30 mins and switch it on again. This will help in cooling your PS3 down.

If these tricks don't work, then I will suggest you go through a dedicated PS3 repair guide instead of tinkering on your own. Such guide will cost you almost nothing in comparison to what Sony charges. And, god forbid, if it happens again you can solve the problem for free.

One of the greatest thing about doing it yourself is that you don't have to pay hefty charges to the big companies. Also, you don't have to wait for weeks, you'll completely fix ps3 ylod in no more than a few hours. Many people have already successfully fixed yellow light of death and I don't see a reason why you won't be able to do it. If my PS3 has yellow light of death then I won't pay Sony to repair my PS3. I'd rather fix PS3 lights myself.

If all this steps wont work i suggest to call SONY
