PS3 Light sequence

 

The following pictures illustrate the CECHX0X model, however the light sequence is applicable to all PlayStation 3 models.

When no lights are on, this means that the main power switch on the back of the ps3 is off or the PS3 is unplugged.

To turn on the PS3 system, make sure the main power switch is on (the ‘I’ side is pressed down).


If the PS3 does not turn on:
·    Make sure the power cord is not frayed or damaged
·    Try using another power cord, if available
·    Make sure the main power switch on the back of the PS3 system is turned on
·    If you continue to have issues contact our Technical support.

When the power status light is solid red, this means that the PS3 system is off (or in standby mode).
Standby, mode means the PlayStation 3 system is off, but is ready to be turned on by pressing the power button.


If the ps3 system will not turn on when you press the power button, this is an issue with the PS3 system and you will need to send your system in for service.

To turn of the PS3, simply press and hold the power button for two
