How to Repair a broken PS3
In this Video Games video tutorial you will learn how to repair a broken PS3. For this you got to put the PS3 into stand by mode. Press down the button located at the top end of the console for 7-10 seconds and listen for 3 beeps. It may not work the 1st time. So, do it again. Then this message is flashed on the TV screen – 'connect the controller using a USB cable etc'. Once you connect the USB cable the trouble shooter prompt comes up displaying 6 options. If you are not using HDTV this will not be displayed. Out of the 6, 'restore default settings' and 'restore PS# system' are the most useful. If these 2 don't solve your problem, try 'restore file system'. You can watch the video for the full instructions.
