    I appreciate that assistance. But where do i go to get the patch to download

  • biggshabazz Jan 08, 2008

    How will I find out when the patch will arrive? This is getting really dumb...Sony needs to work out the kinks before sending this crap out. All the added features and extras are cool but if you can't use it, then whats the use?

    LMFAO!!! That crappy patch didn't fix the 7 units that I had with that problem. New lasers did just fine!!

Hi ive been having problems when you put in a disc and it doesn't respond. is that whats happening to yours? if so i spoke to sony on saturday and they promised me a patch is out tuesday 8th so tomorrow, that is going to repair all disc loading problems, as it is hppening to thousands of ps3's. so wait till tomorrow download the patch if it doesn't work take the ps3 back to where you got it from, as it is less than a week old they will just replace it for a new one. hope this helps you

    you need to download it straight to the ps3 if your online with it. if not download it to a usb memory stick on your pc and transfer the data that way

Start with the PS3 system turned off. Press and hold the power button until you hear three consecutive beeps then let go. Then repeat step one again. This time the last beep will be two consecutive beeps. This will put your PS3 system into safe mode. Click option 2. Restore default settings. Warning This will Reset all Settings.

Our play stion three cut off when we was playing a game the game is still stuck in it


1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.

My ps3 won't connect to av but it will connect with hdmi i tried holding down the power button it did beep three times but nothing happened it just stayed blank should i get a new plugin or is it just how...

if it is still stuck in HDMI mode then the easist way to get it to go back to AV is to plug it back into HD and go back into display settings and select normal AV.
Holding down the power button for 3 seconds will only work if the unit is turned off.

Hi guys, I got this problem this monrning with my ps3 (60GB), I turn it on and after a couple of seconds it turns off, it also shows a red blinking light when off, then green blinks when turn on and last...

The dreaded YLoD, I'm sorry man.

here ya go:

You have the Yellow light of death. The YLOD is the Red Rings of Death, except for the PS32_bing.gif.

I recommend to service your system (if it's out of warranty). About half the price of a Sony2_bing.gif repair and you get YOUR system back, unlike when you send it to Sony2_bing.gif where you get some other random refurbished system.
WE has an automatic 90-day warranty, the same as Sony, but WE also gives you the option to extend the warranty up to 4 years.
The WE warranty also covers the entire system, not just what they fixed on it.

If it is still under original warranty, set up a service request with Sony using these instructions:

Make sure you erase all of your personal info off of your PS3 and follow the instructions on the page above.

Good luck!

Oh, and if you send your system in to Sony, you will get a different copy of the game that is stuck in your system packaged separately and later than when you will get your system back from Sony.

The camera is stuck in picture review mode. Try sliding the mode switch back and forth a couple times, and leave it in camera mode to see if this corrects the problem.

Ps2 on ps3 game problems

I also had this problem running PS2 games. I noticed that when it happened, my bluetooth remotes becames unpaired and could no longer be used to turn the PS3 on/off. Pressing the PS button would not interrupt the hung PS2 game (i.e., it would not give me the options to quit the game, turn the system/controller off, etc.). I talked with the Sony Playstation folks and they suggested resetting the bluetooth controllers (by poking the hole on the backside next to the screw hole). They said sometimes the bluetooth info gets honked. Just before this problem popped up, I was messing around with pairing a bluetooth headset and may have interrupted the pairing. You may have a similar situation, so try resetting your controllers. You may have to plug into the USB port if they won't re-pair after resetting (I did). Good luck!
