Like the title says my ps3 wont turn off. It starts fine, runs fine and plays fine, but it wont turn off at all. Have to pull the power out of the back (Gotta do that cos i cant reach the switch). Anybody know what the issue could be here? :cursing:

Do you ever stop bitching?

"It wont turn off! It wont go up! It goes to the right! I can't get my groove on!"

Have you considered reducing your gaming time so your PS3 can take a break and shut down?

....actually I got no idea :( If shut down via menu, keeping yer finger on power button doesn't work.... beats me.

That used to happen to me, but only when i played BFBC2.

it would freeze up, and cant turn it off.

never happened with other games though.

I didn't even have a game in it last night. It still did it, and frenchy could get it to tuirn off either when she tried

Looks like a PS3 hardware fault.

You could try reinstalling the system software, but it looks like it could be a hardware problem. Bad news, because not easy to fix.

got a solution. Pull the plug as you've said that's the only way to shut it....

then...

just don't turn it back on

Though you need to block her access to this site immediately.

I don’t want to tell you that you cant….but you cant just swap HD if you did swap them the PS3 knows and will try and format ………..thats where the fun starts.But in regards to turning off your PS3 ive engineered up a plan cut your PS3’s power cord and install a switch …Ive done it myself …….Heres one I made earlier.
