Are you contemplating on getting a new ps3 or sending yours back into the manufacturer for repairs? If you haven’t done this yet then that is a good thing. Please read on for the do’s and don’ts when your play station 3 starts showing error messages. Do not kick or physically abuse your playstation. Do not purchase another ps3. No not send it back for repairs. Unless you are a certified Sony tech expert, do not use a Phillips screw driver and open the console. There have been many discussions on troubleshooting a play station 3. This is my list on how I trouble shoot my console.
    Restarting the console — Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Restarting a console might make the play station work again.
  Use another disc – the problem might be the disc that is being used. Put in a clean disc to test the console
3. Turn the ps3 off — A ps3 can overhead and cause problems. Leave the ps3 off for 30 minutes until console is cooled.
4. Check the cables – if the cables are accidentally unplugged or re attached incorrectly , this could cause problems with your console.
5. Checking the system settings — Your play station 3 can have settings that are not properly used. One example would be playing with the PS3 on a HDTV, while the settings are made for a standard TV. In this case, the display will not work as it should. Take a look in the configuration and ensure that everything is correct.
